|Bat & Link Box - Autonomous power supply and interface converter
The device Bat & Link Box combines the functions of an autonomous power source for the direction finding station Zima2-B (and older version - Zima-B) and a switching hub for interfacing the station with the user’s PC, as well as for connecting data sources about the heading and position of the direction finding station. Contains protection circuits against polarity reversal and overvoltage of connected devices.
The device is housed in a small impact-resistant plastic case. Has the front panel from high-quality stainless steel. The modern lithium-iron phosphate batteries used in the device provide operation at negative temperatures and more than 3000 charge-discharge cycles. If necessary, it is possible to work from an AC source via complect AC adaptor.
The appearance of the front panel of the device is shown in Figure 1. In the center of the panel there are connectors for connecting devices that support communication via the RS-422/485 interface and USB-B connectors. Connectors are grouped as 1 and 81. External devices are connected to connectors X1 and X3, these connectors provide power to connected external devices. The USB-B connectors X2 and X4 are intended for connection to the USB port of a PC.

Indicator 2 is on when the built-in power supply is being charged and off when it is not being charged. The two-color indicator 3 is used to show the power status of the system. Table 1 lists all options for possible light signals. Toggle switch 4 is designed to turn on the power of the device.
Fuses 5 and 6 protect the built-in battery and external power circuits, respectively. Fuses of size 5.2x20 with a nominal value of 5A are used.
Connector 7 is intended for connecting a network adapter, through which the built-in power supply is charged and the device is powered from the AC mains.
