Preparing the Cables for a 450 W or 550 W DC Power Supply

Three spade-type terminals are provided with the power supply.

You need a crimping tool to attach the terminals to the power and ground cables.

To prepare the cable wires, follow these steps:

  1. On each cable wire, strip 6 mm (0.25 inch) of insulation from one end.
  2. Insert the end of one power cable wire all the way into the barrel of a spade terminal and crimp the terminal securely to the wire.
