Preparing the Cables for an 1100 W DC Power Supply

You need three cable wires: two power input cables and one ground cable. Refer to Required Tools and Materials for Installing an 1100 W DC Power Supply for details.

To prepare the cable wires for the 1100 W DC power supply unit, follow these steps:

  1. Strip 0.4 inch (10 mm) of insulation from one end of each cable wire.
  2. Insert the end of the stripped ground wire (green or green and yellow) all the way into the barrel of the ring terminal and crimp the terminal securely to the wire.

No ring terminal is required to connect the cable wires (non-ground wires) to the 1100 W DC power supply.
