New Power Board Built Up

January 10, 2014 in 8 Channel PDU by Joshua Oster-Morris

Save for a single piece of hardware, a large gauge small diameter ring terminal which is on the way, I have all the parts necessary to begin testing this version of the power board. What do you think of the new terminals? Preferable to the Weatherpaks we had before? I will supply this with Philips head screws rather than hex head bolts or hex drive screws as are shown in the photo. Those are just what I had on hand this afternoon.

I am temped to move the main input terminal (the unpopulated one) to the left about a centimeter in order to allow the ground wire to be completely clear of the power input (instead of being kicked out to the left). After I’ve had a chance to install the power cable with its fat ring terminal I will have a better idea about space though. I’m not too concerned either way at the moment. I went for smallest overall size rather than concern myself with tidiness of the wires. I’ll cogitate on it for a while and see how I feel.
