Resistors on punch blocks

Resistors on punch blocks

Resistors on punch blocks

I am working on a PA/intercom system that uses 25V lines for talkback speakers. The documentation for the system states that a 47k-Ohm resistor should be placed across each unused audio pair.

I'm doing the cross-connections on BIX blocks (I live up North) and I'm wondering if it's okay to be punching down the legs of the resistors right onto the block or not. Has anyone here ever punched down resistors directly onto a block (66 or 110 included), or is there a different way I should be going about this?


RE: Resistors on punch blocks

I, myself, would utilize barrier strips for resistors, and, run jumpers back to the block.

RE: Resistors on punch blocks

That makes sense. I imagine it will keep things more neat and manageable as well. I've ordered some barrier strips.

Thanks Dexman!
