Wire
Wire Gauge
should be
determined by
the item being
powered. The
fuse size for
that circuit
should
correlate to the
wire gauge
based upon the
following chart.

Fuse
Fuse size should be
decided by the wire gauge
in the circuit it completes.
Power Distribution
Fuses are
placed on
the power
distribution
board in
order to
complete
the circuit
Terminals
Terminals should be
secured to the ends
off wires. Terminals
should be crimped to
the wire and then
soldered. When
attaching a terminal,
the insulation of the
terminal should
extend over the
insulation of the wire
so that no conductive
material is exposed in
between.
Stripping

Wire size gets smaller the higher the gauge.
For example 22 gauge wire is much smaller
than 10 gauge wire.
take your wire and determine the gauge.
The gauge of the wire is usually written on
the wires insulation. If not find out the gauge
by trial and error with the strippers
After pulling off the insulation give the wire a
twist to keep it together
Always make sure when connecting wire that
you do not go down in wire gauge.
Solder
Ensure that your solder
does not contain lead
Be sure to avoid
Inhaling fumes
Breaker
Your main breaker should be
located between your robot’s
battery and your robot’s
power distribution board.
The main breaker should be
easily accessible. It is also a
good idea to clearly indicate
where it is located with a
sticker or similar labeling
device. Circuit breakers can
also be used instead of fuses
on the power distribution
board.
