I’ve seen multiple cases of teams this season having intermittent electrical issues with motors because their power poles weren’t assembled correctly.
• Increased resistance and current draw from connected loads
• intermittent motor performance
• (related to resistance) increased heat generation at the faulty connector, resulting in a melted powerpole housing
• various error codes in NEOs due to one or more phases not being connected properly.
When wiring, just make sure you’re following the assembly instructions here:
