Out of Grounds...

heyo, got a question:

the robot this year is short about 3 ground connections, because of the maxi block. i was wondering if anyone knows if it’s legal to use a barrier strip or jump multiple things together to make up the difference

It should be legal to combine grounds. They all go to one collective plate, anyway, so if it isn’t legal, it should be.

There are jumpers available that give multiple taps for one lug. They are available from Digikey and they are called “multistack adapters”. They are shown on page 171 of my catalog but the part number and listing is on p172. We use style “A”, pt# 9200082-01-ND. I think that is the number.
