Power Distribution Block?
« on: February 25, 2009, 09:57:36 AM »
I'm using a 12VDC SLA battery to power my board and a handful of components, but using the board to control them. This means I have a huge terminal coming off the battery that I want to go into separate power and ground blocks. I already have them hooked into those cheap black ones with wires jumping from terminal to terminal to supply power across the block, but I can't find a decent cleaner version (the block takes up too much room). All I want to do is like they have for car audio - connect it to one terminal and about 6 other terminals are now live.

Any ideas?? I can't believe I can't find this...

I don't quite understand your question, especially how you defined terminals and blocks . . . ???

Hi,

When I need what I think you are after, I take a square copper (or brass) rod, drill it and tap it - it's not very hard if you've got a drill press and then you can get them to any size that you want.

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?

Thanks for the idea! This could definitely work.
