In order to get your robot or psuedo-robot up and running, electronics-wise, you need: cRIO, power distribution board, digital sidecar, battery, 120AMP breaker. Additionally you need some wire (we use red for + and black for ground). Do not attach a battery until the wiring is complete and you have double checked that it is correct/ safe.
- Attatch the breaker to the power distribution board
Take the red Anderson connector connected to two wires (red and black), and attach terminal lugs to both wires. Next, take the red wire, and attach the lug to the main breaker with the provided nut. With another piece of red wire with terminal lugs on both ends, connect the breaker to the positive shank on the power distribution board. Connect the black wire directly to the negative shank.
