Connecting multiple ground wires?
I know this is such a simple question but I have searched the internet and can't seem to find the answer. I want to combine the ground wires from a number of switches into a single wire to connect to a BU0836X. Originally I was going to run each ground into the BU0836X but after a great design suggestion I need to reduce the overall number of wires I'm using to fit them through a tight spot. Is there a certain plug or connector that I should be using? or do I simply solder all 5 ground wired into one and cover it with shrink tube?

Or connect them to a terminal strip that is then connected to the card. That would be my preferred way.Rodney -

That's what I've used. I make them from aluminum bar stock on a base of 1/4" plywood.Boeing Skunk Works
