Conflicting messages re Impaq Plus with Elite 24

Recommended Posts

Solid cored cable can snap/fatigue over time.

 

Terminals are more than big enough for all the powered devices you'd need on the Texecom stuff, in fact I would say they are better than most other panels for that.

 

I have no idea why zones are linked out with a 1/2W resistor, best to be programmed out.

2a connector block/strip

Thanks. An ebay search for that tends to bring up the simple screw choc blocks but paging down also showed 4/8/12 Position Barrier Block Terminal Strip Connector with 1 UK seller on ebay but plenty sellers in Hong Kong & China. Not quite the same as the PCB versions but similar and without the pins.  This ebay item 312723313871 even comes with a strip of linked spade terminals to convert the barrier connector into a bus.

 

I now recall using one of these barrier connectors some years back to update the antiquated wiring on an old Connoisseur BD2 turntable which I then fed via a pre-amp to a new digital hi-fi - old technology married to new!

Agreed re solid cable - I haven't used any.  I did programme out the unused zones but I was still getting warming messages (can't remember where) so it was a easily job to add the extra resistors especially as I had bought a pack of 25.
