Wood board mounting grounding protocol
11/13/20 at 23:40:16
 
Fellow Zkit 1 builders: I am a bit confused with the descriptions and definitions of the grounding for the most recent Zkit 1 pcb. There is a note that "both the circuit ground and the ground plane be tied together with a short jumper" Also, " an earth ground must be connected between the amplifier's ground plane and the ground lug of your power cord." There is a "chassis ground" next to the 100 ohm resistors and a "ground case of vol control" next to the potentiometer. Is chassis ground = circuit ground and the ground plane = the ground case? From the drawing under CHASSIS WIRING the chassis ground it connected to the power power cord IEC connection.

Another question: for the IEC power cord receptacle, I assumed this can be a combined switched receptacle (I have one from Parts Express). Is there and specifications to be aware of. Also I do not see any fuses associated with the build. Is this a good idea to prevent a loss of one's hard work? If so any suggestions on the fuse specs and locations?

Thanks for any assistance Smiley
