This is for Simracing wheel builders that want all the shiny electronic stuff to work well in their steering wheels ;-)

A POWERED breakout box for a GX12 or GX16 (Aviation) connector. This works well with a 6 core or 8 core coiled wire and GX12/16 - 6pin or 8pin.
I use this to provide an additional 5v power supply to certain hardware that needs more than a standard USB cable can provide (USBD480 with LEDs for example). These hardware combinations can require more power and as such will not function properly without the additional 5v from another source.
You can use either two USB ports or connect a 5v power supply. Choose the correct model regarding the power supply you wish to use. ( I like the 5v power supply over two USB ports)
This is the primary connector for all my wheels.

The models should already be orientated for the correct side down on the build plate
Note: I use GX16-6 as it is just a little easier to solder with more space between the pins and 8pins is more than I need, but this is your choice.
