Resistor Board - Part II

Blank PC board with soldered resistors and bridge rectifiers and wire leads protruding from one edge

I’ve now added the leads to resistor board I built last month. This will allow it to be more easily connected to my control panel. As I mentioned in a previous post, I know this resistor board isn't required. I simply built it to keep things organized.

One thing I realized however with adding the leads to the board was the extra amount of wire that is required. This is opposed to having a resistor added directly inline. With this system, leads need to come from the power source, to the board to reach the corresponding resistor, then continue on to the component. The added LED light on the board is for testing purposes only.
