Re: Mach2GTO Anderson Powerpole passthrough current rating #Mach2GTO

The internal wiring is a simple pass-thru. It is totally isolated from the chassis.
The wire is AWG 16 which will carry 15 amps conservatively, and up to 22 amps intermittently.
https://www.powerstream.com/Wire_Size.htm
The wire length is approx 0.7 meters, 2ft.
You can use it for any low voltage application, 5 volts to 24 volts AC - DC etc.
NEVER connect 120 volt AC house power to this wire - it is extremely dangerous to do so.

Subject: [ap-gto] Mach2GTO Anderson Powerpole passthrough current rating #Mach2GTO

How much current can I draw through the Anderson Powerpole passthrough on the Mach2GTO?

Or alternatively, what is the AWG & length of the internal wiring, and are the Powerpole connectors 15, 30 or 45 amp rated?

Second, are those wires pure passthrough without any connection (even just ground) to the mount's internal wiring? For example, is there a technical reason that it can't be used for 5V? Or 24V? Or 12V A/C ?
