Another 3 prong ground question!

Recommended Posts

I got my 16 channel board a couple of days ago via ups. I went out to big lots and bought some 3 outlet 4 foot 3 prong plugs for the output cords, and got them wired up. I was reading some posts about people just zip tieing them out of the way, so I just went ahead and cut them off and wrapped some elec. tape around them. I was wanting to know if that was okay.



As for the input cord I should just ground it some the heatsink. Right..



Thanks for the help.

This depends, what kind of enclosure do you have. I have a plastic Rite-Time enclosure. My grounds (for main power, as I have none on the 16) are simply taped off. If you have a metal enclousre, you will need to ground it properly. Others will need to speak up on this issue. It's not my strong point.

I was just going to mount them on a board on the wall in the garange.



So even the 15 amp input cords I can just tape off.



Thanks Don
