    Hello all,

    OK so having brain farts and confusing myself here.

    Just wanting to confirm wiring colors for power injection with Rays 3-2-3 to do straight power injection from power supplies.

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3-c...id=dd078ecc-b6cb-4342-b2b0-79336331f227&tpp=1

    Which is the positive?

    I am running power back to my central command and have 2 core coming from power supply to either straight to T-type or via F8 Distro board.

    I have my head around running blue to blue all the way through the setup but my concern is the T-type and should blue be positive from the start or negative?

    Or have i just confused the reader...... :):eek::confused::D

    Not really no. This is for 3 core and I am using the T-type with 2 core power injection. Good spot though.

    easy to workout with multi meter.. looking at the pic use the meter to check for circuit from +ve of the 3 pin plug to the 2 way t connector

    Ok so that raises the following;

    If I follow the Blue --> Blue and work backwards from lights back to power supply then the combination should be fine...?

    I would end up with a combination as such....

    Lights

    T-type splitter (Female end for 2 core)

    Male end -> cable -> Male end

    Female end -> F8 distro (Blue into GND side) -> Female end connected to F8 power

    Male end -> cable -> Male end

    Female end -> connected to power supply


    And there is my learn something new everyday moment. :):):):):)

    Always test with a multi-meter. I've had a few T-pieces with incorrect wiring, from the same batch.
