Radio ON Sensor
The ON Sensor determines if the transceiver has been turned ON and, if so, it provides power to switch the Antenna Disconnect Actuator.  The ON Sensor is needed if the associated transceiver does not have a 12 volt power output terminal or socket, and you wish to keep your transceiver's power supply turned on.  
The ON Sensor is placed in series with the transceiver’s power wire. The connectors allow easy hook up to most power supplies and radio power cables.  The Sensor comes with 3-way banana binding posts, ¼ inch ring terminals, and a jumper with Powerpoles.
Current sensing is accomplished by its unique method of using a fuse for the sense element.  Different value fuses allow the ON-Sensor to work with all radio’s, QRP to QRO.
