Re: Terminating a Buss Run

Just cut the wires off and hold them mechanically in place....Really, the electrons won't escape. :-)
Adding a wire nut to each wire will help ensure that nothing else touches it. It could also end at a terminal strip for future expansion of your empire.
Better yet, the end of the bus run is the ideal place to add an R/C bus terminator. So put ae point terminal strip there and use the center terminal for the R & C tiepoint.

What is the correct way to terminate a buss run ?

Would you wrap a wire nut around the wire end ?

How about just using IDC connector ?
