Preparing the Cables for a 300 W DC Power Supply

A ring terminal and two spade 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 0.25 inch (6.35 mm) 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.

  4. 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.
