  • Question about OPUS 120 Wiring..

    Hi all,

    I just received my OPUS 120 and noticed that it has 2 wires for [+], 2 wires for [-] ground. I have an m1-atx and it only has 1 wire for the pos and 1 for ground.

    All the docs i've read say just to connect to + and connect to -.

    Should I connect the 2 +wires to the same battery wire or 2 separate ones?
    Same with the grounds, 2 separate ground points or one?

    Thanks.

    The 2 + and the 2 - wires are tied together where the connector mates with the PC board. The 2 wires just allow more current to flow with a smaller more flexible wire size.
    Both wires go to the same place. I just twisted both of the reds and both of the blacks together and connected as though they were 1 pair of wires.

      AWESOME! Thanks for the info. I was scratching my head over this one and I hope this power supply lives up to the hype over the m1-atx. I'm sure it will.
