Connecting two PCM


#1

Hey, my team needs to use two PCM’s due to the amount of solenoids we are using. I want to know how to give power to that second PCM


#2

You can power the PCM from a 20A breaker on a PDP slot. I would recommend running the compressor on that PCM.

We are running two PCMs this year both of them are on their own 20A breakers on the PDP. We don’t like to have any other items running through the fuse for the radio.

Oh, okay, and I why do you don’t like to connect it to the fuse?


#4

A short on anything else connected to the fuse for the radio could possibly blow that fuse and now your robot is disconnected for the rest of the match.
