DC Power Cable Specifications for the C Series Controller

You connect DC power to the power supply by attaching power cables from the external DC power source to the terminal block on the DC power supply. You must provide the power cables. You must use a minimum of 12-AWG wire for the power cables.

Table 8 summarizes the specifications for the power cables, which you must supply.

C Series Controller Grounding Cable and Lug Specifications

Caution: Before installation begins, a licensed electrician must attach a cable lug to the grounding cables that you supply. A cable with an incorrectly attached lug can damage the C Series Controller.

You ground the device by connecting a grounding cable to earth ground and then attaching it to the grounding point on the DC power supply. You must provide the grounding cables. The cable lug used on the grounding cable should have a #10 stud hole and accommodate a minimum of 12-AWG wire. We recommend using the PANDUIT® LCB8-10H-L lug, which accommodates 8-AWG wire. The grounding cable that you provide must meet the specifications in Table 9.
