Here is a pic of our wiring job. As you can see, we need a few more zip ties. :yikes:

Everybody has that look at some point in their life. It’s best to have it as a rookie.

I’d suggest, as much as you can, to go through and figure out how much excess wire you can snip out of this setup. It’ll cost you some extra crimping and wire connectors, but it’s well worth saving the weight and all those bad things that come with too much wire (like wasting juice that could be headed to your motors!).

And yes, a few zip ties couldn’t hurt.

I would seriously recommend writing everything down to what goes where, 294 has had some horrible issues like that, and was the main reasons why when the robot broke during test, it would take a few days to get it back where it was before it broke

Also, make sure the design team… actually design the wiring… you dont want 90 degree turns, or something like…what you have…

You might want to take a look at this thread http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=31550 And look at the pictures too, especially of 968’s. I think every team should strive for their wiring to look like that. I know we will.

and i thought OURS was bad rookie year… :ahh:

It’s OK to make some mistakes, as long as you learn from them. Check out our Speed Controller Tower of Terror from last year , and our more spread out approach so far this year.

Today, I will be making an electronics board. I will be laying all the electronics out and make it all nice looking. I will post pics when I get it finished.
