SO3 Dropping Connection

SO3 Dropping Connection

Postby allenc » Sat Feb 02, 2019 1:05 am

When I first started using my SO3, I got lots of connection drops. I was advised to place the SO3 power cable on its own circuit. Problem solved...

However, I find due to wood shop rearrangement, I no longer have a separate circuit I can devote to the SO3. Looks like I'll have to connect SO3 power, spindle power, and PC power on the same 20 amp circuit. I am wondering if any one has experience with simple power cable shielding. Specifically, I'm considering a set of "Anti-interference Noise Filters Ferrite Core Choke Clips."

See this link to amazon for an example (however, clip diameter is too small, will have to research core chokes that will accommodation larger gauge power cables...

Does anyone have ideas/suggestions for shielding? I'm not married to the use of ferrite chokes, just ran across this doing research.

Thanks everyone,

We have a bit on this on the wiki: ... connection

The ferrite beads help --- department of redundancy department I even added a pair to an old Apple cable with a braided wire sleeve.

If you can't resolve things, let us know at and we'll do our best to help.
