Background

In general, Atreum boards are designed such that all positive terminals are connected to each other, and all negative terminals are connected to each other. What this means is:

  1. It doesn't matter which (+) or (-) terminal the wiring is connected to.
  2. Daisy-chaining boards by connecting the positive terminal of one board to the positive terminal of the next board connects the boards in a parallel configuration.
  3. Daisy-chaining the boards by connecting the negative terminal of one board to the positive terminal of the next board connects the boards in a series configuration.

Connecting Power Cord to Meanwell LED Driver Input

We recommend connecting the Power Cord to LED Driver Input using a 2-Way Junction Connector. The corresponding wire colors are detailed in the following table:

 Function Power Cord Wire Colors Meanwell LED Driver Input Wire Colors
Protective Ground Green or Green-Yellow Green or Green-Yellow
Neutral (N) White Blue
Line (L) Black Brown

 

When tightening down the junction connector screws, ensure the screws are biting on the metal core of the wire.
