Subject: Is the AMP connector the industry standard?

Hey all,

Getting ready for fall seeding and need to do some wiring.

I really have not had any sort of electronics on anything when I was farming with dad, so right now just starting with a GPS lightbar and a planter monitor, but I would like to do it up right, allowing for expansion.

I was looking at the Shoup Powerbar (looks the same as the Ag Express Powerbar) and it has AMP and regular 12V cigarette lighter style plugs.

Is AMP the industry standard that I should be following?

The only other option that appears to be out there is JD's powerstrip setup, but is that a JD only setup that no universal monitor or GPS will come wired to?

Basically I am looking for the Pioneer Hyd. tip of electrical. :) I want to have it set up so that if for some odd reason I need to loan someone my monitor or borrow someone elses, it stands a good chance of being all ready wired and ready to go. Also, in case of a tractor breakdown (much more likely with my price point for used equipment... :) ) I want to be able to switch it over quickly to another tractor.

And no, a household powerstrip is not going to be used.

Any input appreciated,
