Title: How to build a power sys-2
Post by: bt53754 on April 08, 2017, 10:35 PM
Hello all,

I'm trying to figure out how to buy a systainer with the outlets built into it or how. I could build my own out of a systainer. Thanks for all the help in advance

Don't know where in the world you are but here in the U.K. the Systainer power hub retails for £110 inc taxes. Be hard pushed to find a systainer, 5 outlets, indicator light, thermal overload, 10m cable and a plug for much less and you still have to make it..
I like mine and it mostly  powers non Festool's as they are on the midi. It usually sits under the mft. The only improvement would be a USB plug on the inside.

Do they do em in 110 volt for UK site use?
I seem to remember that being mentioned but I've not seen one for sale yet.

I am also trying to source a 120 volt power hun centre. I cant find any other than the 220 version.

I may end up building my own but i really dont have the time.  Anybody have any ideas or done it and i can purchase directly from them?

Hi all
Found this on gumtree, sure I have seen it listed on EBay before as well. I assume that this guy is making them himself.

Never understood people's fascination with taking up more space for these than necessary by building them into a Systainer.

Nice work. 

I'm thinking about building something like this.  I was thinking I'd do some sort of locking connectors for the power running into the box so that it wouldn't come out on the job site.

LOL.
I tried to patent a SysSwitch once to solve a SysLite Duo problem:

FWIW...here’s a rather lengthy thread on building a domestic Power Sys for 120 volt. It’s pretty detailed with part numbers and resources.
