Mounting the Auxiliary Power Panel

These instructions are for mounting the Auxiliary Power Panel in your enclosure

The Power panel can be mounted anywhere in your enclosure but it is recommended
it be mounted near the Power Chassis to cut down on the amount of AC wire required.
This will also cut down the amount of objects they pass. This step can be skipped if
you intend to wire your power lead directly to the power supply. Another position for
the Power panel would be near where the Stepper Motor exit the enclosure as the
intended function of the panel is to power your router. 

 

 

Warnings

AC Mains Power can kill or seriously injure

DO NOT plug in your equipment while you are working on it

 

 

Parts Required

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Supplied Parts

1x Power Panel

 

 

Parts to be sourced

No additional parts required.

 

Recommended tools

Appropriate cutting tool for the material your enclosure is made of.

 

 

Parts Overview

Power panel housing

  1. Front plate
  2. Main housing
  3. Rear panel

The front plate with the universal AC socket is the only visible part once the Power
panel is mounted. The main housing has clips around it (not pictured) that are designed
to work with 2mm or less thick enclosure materials. It can be mounted in thicker
materials, the clips will provide a source of friction to stop the panel pulling out.

 

 

Assembly/Installation process

Make sure your power lead is not connected or plugged into a wall socket.

When choosing your mounting point position please consider the following:

  1. The rear panel and associated wiring should not come in contact with
    other components
  2. Any wiring to still to be done will need space for you to work in
  3. AC wires should not be draped over or rest on metal surfaces
  4. The power panel should be mounted close to the power supply to
    reduce the amount of AC wiring running through your project or
    close to where the stepper and limit switch cables will exit the
    enclosure.
  5. The best position for the power chassis is in/close to one of the corners of your enclosure

Installation Process

Once you have selected the desired position to mount the panel in please cut out the
mount as per the mounting template. Panel orientation is at your discretion.

 

Place the panel over the mounting point and push in firmly. If your enclosure is made
 from 2mm or less thick material you should here a click as the mounting clips expand,
you'll hear nothing on thicker materials.

 

With the panel fully home the only visible component should be the Front plate
(Universal power socket). From the rear, all the terminals should be visible on the
Rear panel. Test the panel for firmness of the fit. If it is loose you may require some
adhesive, be carful about using adhesives that melts plastic as this may cause electrical
components to be exposed.
