Hi Guys,

When wiring the LCPS to the TXD modules I would assume you use one LCPS output for the + rail wiring it straight + to V+ and - to GND on the TXD. For the - rail the second LCPS output would be reversed + to GND and - to V- on the TXD. Correct?

Would it be considered bad form to use short jumpers for the PSU connections from the first TXD to the second? Or is it better to have separate power runs to each module?

For the balanced outputs is it actually necessary to have a separate ground return to both terminal blocks?

Thanks!

You are correct on the power supply wiring.

Using seperate power runs will give you a more star-like grounding, but it would probably be fine to daisy chain.

You only need to use one of the grounds for the ouputs.

Sounds like you are getting close. Can't wait to hear what you think.

Hi,
You have the wiring for LCPS to TXD correct.

I tend to prefer to run separate wires to each load even when using one PS, this provides the benefits of a star power/gnd arrangement. This allows for better decoupling.

For your application you would simply use one of the out GNDs. You would leave the other unconnected.

keep us posted. :)

Cheers!
Russ

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the quick replies!

Yes, I'm getting very close Applause I started last night and I'm well into the hard part...chassis work. But I'm about to the point where I should call it a night before I start making misteakez. I did want to get this going tonite which is why I was contemplating shortcuts such as daisy-chaining the PSU connections, as always, better to not rush things and do it right the first time. Anyway, I do believe it's time for some B&B, Beverage and Blues (wyep.org -streaming check them out) I'm local so I get it OTA Angel

Thanks again, I'll be sure to keep you posted.
