Talk:CEB Press Controller v17.08
momentary toggle switches could be an option instead of momentary buttons
a 6 connection swtich could allow 5V to swtich signal to arduino while operating 12V simultaniously
need smallest size female terminal connector for adafruit button
These are the best cable glands for Cat6 cable -> https://www.grainger.com/product/HUBBELL-WIRING-DEVICE-KELLEMS-Nylon-Cable-Connector-2DPF8
but nuts are sold seperately. see BOM. also, might find some 1/2" rubber washers to use with... other brands include them.
- 1/4" blade style terminal disconnects wont fit though cable gland hole.
- 3/16" blade style insulated terminals wont fit thought cable gland hole.
- will have to make up cat6 cable with gland on wire
- going to check on round terminal sizes
wire gauge options
Cat6 cable = 8 strands of 23 gauge
2 strangs of 23 gauge have approx the same cross section as 1 stand of 20 gauge
3 strangs of 23 gauge have approx the same cross section as 1 stand of 18 gauge
a "22-18" terminal connector can fit no more than one 20 gauge+one 18 gauge wire at once
based on this i think its best to run a 18 gauge from the cat6 to the main power switch and then a 20 gauge to the "auto" switch. will also look for a larger gauge 3/16" terminal conector. --Dorkmo (talk) 05:31, 6 October 2017 (CEST)
