I didn’t get anywhere near as much done this weekend as I’d planned (thus proving once again that my estimation skills are poor), but I did get some useful work done on the power cabling for the console interior.
There are several devices within the console that require mains power: the two PSUs for PC1 and PC2, two monitors, the power brick for the tablet PC3, the power brick for the UMPC PC4 (via an extension into the pedestal), a USB hub and a network switch. And that’s just what I’ve come up with so far. All of these need cabling, and I can’t just let the cables float about within the console interior however they like. That would be an invitation to foul the controls or circuit boards yet to come. So clips and ties were the order of the day.
