  • circuit breakers and bus bars

    I would like some ideas on how bus bars are wired with circuit breakers. Ideally reset breakers on the the panel in a self contained unit. Something like this from Jaycar but so breakers can be reset in flight if need be.

      Just another consideration is to allow your separated avionics bus to be powered up without powering up your main bus. I do this to allow me to run radios and nav equipment for pre flight programming and situational awareness without having strobes, pumps, ignition systems and Hobbs meters running needlessly.

        Is this type of bus bar something which would do the job in a gyro or is there a preferred type?

          Ideally you would require 2 of these so that you can split them into a general and an avionics bus.

        Anything will do
        You can then buy and use resettable blade fuses in this.
