Cabinet Earthing complete - Sunday 17 April 2005 13:23 Permalink

Finished the cabinet earthing today. I was a relatively easy task quick task really. Basically I've connected all the 'metal' components back to the earth connector on the PSU. In my case this was two metal studs in the base, two earth connectors on the exterior, cash box door, coin door, JAMMA connector and Control Panel.

When our kid rewired the cabinet PSU for me, he created a new earthing point inside the PSU. From this an earth cable comes out of the PSU to the JAMMA connector, which I've then used to connect all the earth connections from elsewhere in the cabinet.

For this I used some earth cable (strangely enough) and some spade crimps.
