Author Topic: Icom PS-126 PSU: use with two or more Icom radios  (Read 579 times)

I have a PS-126, which uses the 4-pin plug, compatible with both my IC-7300 and IC-7410.

Does anyone know whether a commercial adapter is available which would enable the one PS to be connected to both radios at the same time.

The main purpose would be to remove the need to unplug and re-plug, which is not so easy, and might eventually lead to some part breaking.

My solution is to lop off the 4 pin plug and put on a powerpole.  Then you can connect up whatever you like with homebrew or commercial cable assemblies to whatever equipment you want.

Medieval but effective.

I was thinking of getting a IC-9700 to go beside my IC-7300 and IC-R8600(2-pin!), with the IC-7410 as a standby.

I would obtain the necessary molex connectors to make
a Y pig tail cable that plugs right into the 4 pin plug. This
way the the original configuration is retained if needs change
later on.

Thanks this is what I thought. I had a look at the Mouser catalogue and hope I pick the correct 4-pin connectors.

Or, $10 worth of power poles and use the power cables you already have, plus be able to connect any future radios and accessories as you go.  I think of it as efficient and dynamic.

Thanks. I will take another look at that option.
