Visualization of Powerbox addon for Leo Rover


The PowerBox module is the most recommended upgrade for the Leo Rover, replacing the right quarter to deliver four 12V DC power sockets, four 5V DC power sockets via a 12V-5V 9A converter, and an externally accessible battery socket. This module supports additional LiDARs, computers, and robotic arms, enables battery charging during operation, and allows for tethered power and seamless battery hot-swaps, ensuring continuous operation of the rover.

What's included

  • 1 x Powerbox
  • 8 x Phoenix Contact MSTB 2,5/ 2-ST-5,08
  • 3 x ISO 7380-2 M5x10 screws

Possible applications

With Powerbox you are able to:

  • connect additional LiDARs, computers (such as Jetson Nano, Jetson Xavier NX, etc.), robotic arms (PhantomX Pincher, WidowX, etc.),
  • charge the Rover battery during its operation,
  • power the Rover via tether,
  • perform battery hot-swap - where you keep the Rover operational using the standard battery charger during the battery swap.
