Prepare the AC (mains) power cable for connection to the power supply input terminal:
Figure 1. Example of stripped AC (mains) power cable
Number in figure Wire Min. … max. wire cross-section
1 Line wire 0.5 … 2.5 mm2 (20 … 14 AWG)
2 Grounding wire
3 Neutral wire
  1. Strip 55 mm (2.17 in) of the cable to expose the wires.
  2. Cut off 10 mm (0.39 in) of the line and neutral wires. Leave the grounding wire 55 mm (2.17 in) long.
    CAUTION Make sure that the grounding wire is longer than the line and neutral wires. Under mechanical stress, the grounding wire must be the last to disconnect from the protective ground terminal.
  3. Strip the ends of the individual wires to expose the conductors for a length of 8 mm (0.32 in).
