- breakout box
This is a great breakout box. Works perfectly. Having the ground connector separate for each switch makes life so much easier. They sell this in two versions, one is fully built and the cost is close to the same as the Apex box. The other (the one I bought) is about half the price but requires assembly and a bit of soldering. No instructions were included so you have to look up a how to video on Youtube. Once you have the video, assembly is easy and the soldering is very basic but you do need soldering supplies on hand. It took me about 30 minute to assemble and there were not any issues. This unit works flawlessly with the Apex controller.
Once I found a clear view of what I was supposed to do it was easy. The avast website how to video didn’t show a close enough view to distinguish what poles you were supposed to solder.
Great quality and super easy to assemble!
This kit is very easy to assemble, it makes it easy to add switches to the apex.
I bought the build your own kit because I wanted to try my hand at soldering. I've learned I'm not very good at soldering, but was able to heavy hand my way through it and bottom line, it worked. the box itself looks great and it is so easy to attach my float switches and any other switch I might want to add. No instructions came with the kit, but a quick search on you tube turned up several videos on how to build.
