Power Supply extension to Einsy Board?

Hi all,

Has anyone found a way to extend the wiring from the power supply to the Einsy Board nicely? Which would also have a connector for easier connect/disconnect for maintenance?

I'm thinking of using either CPU or GPU cable extensions for this but was wondering if anyone has come up with anything better that isn't as "homemade"?

Also, although expensive (so probably won't buy it), I was wondering if the Mean Well GST280A24-C6P could've been a good replacement?

RE: Power Supply extension to Einsy Board?

Some people have used XT60 connectors with 14AWG Flexible silicone wire, to extend the power cables from Einsy to the Power unit, (You could use 12AWG Cable, but it would probably be overkill and be difficult to solder due to heat sinking effect of the  copper cable)
the Power Panic wires would benefit from a more delicate solution.  although, XT60's would definitely make a positive connection!

I try to make safe suggestions,You should understand the context and ensure you are happy that they are safe before attempting to apply my suggestions, what you do, is YOUR responsibility. Location Halifax UK
