For wiring to the various external devices I'm using solid CAT5 cable. Not sure this is the best choice as wires can break at the terminal screw.
Is it better to use stranded, at least for short runs to the wireless receiver, LCD etc? If using stranded should the stripped ends be tinned?
Or are crimped spade terminal ends best?
I'm using an ELK enclosure but i don't see any easy way to strain relief the wires inside the cabinet using tie wraps or similar. I'm sure something can be rigged but not sure how. Lots of holes but hard to get a tie wrap through the holes when already mounted.
For input contact switches i see that a 2200 Ohm resistor is required. Are these normally attached at the terminal screws and ganged with the contact switch wires?
