Buss bar

Some weirdo was asking me if I'd used them for multiple commons. I found a pic, yes, always.

Not exactly what I call a buss bar, looks more like a terminal strip to me.

Nice Idea

a true buss bar is for full current in an electrical panel - not really anything to do with sprinkler systems

Thanks,not up to my usual anal specs, but custom megas change daily, so wires are re-routed so as to give us a straight "walk-through" with the remote. Plus, I learned to dedicate field and clock wires to the terminal strips for changes in the future, which I knew would come. I love spare wires!

To me a buss is part of the distribution system. It often carries 1000's of amps and the transformers and disconnects attach to it.

That is just me but that little piece of aluminum could technically be a neutral buss.

I still don't even want to ground the common wires on a controller.

That's a splice box in the pic and free-floating, not a clock, you dimwit.
