Re: OT: Why is a Pomona Dual Banana Plug Shorting Bar Polarized


Because you must always short things in one direction or it won't work of course, just like if you connect speakers so the +ve audio goes down a wire with black insulation and the -ve audio goes down the wire with red insulation it will sound terrible!

Tricky little things these electrons, they know a lot more than most people give them credit for ...or perhaps because Pomona just use the same moulding tool for everything...?

Does Pomona know something about shorting bars that I don't?

Was I using them wrong half of the time if I wasn't paying attention to
their orientation?

Does anyone pay attention to the polarity of a shorting bar?
