Jerry, it's a pleasure to see such an efficient implementation by using a PFET. My faith in humanity has, at least partly, been restored! ;)

 Yes Skull,  I like to think that I know what I am doing most of the time, although the original designs did not include the reverse polarity protection, that was added just prior to the first delivered systems in December 2016. It is a little added cost, but on this level of instrument is absolutely needed for those doing DIY power systems.
