You might remember from my last article that my wife and I set out on a journey to become Spartans. Well on the 20th of October in the year 2018 we stormed the Toyota Stadium and walked away VICTORIOUS! It was so much fun and yet challenging. I was able to overcome all obstacles presented before me, but one. The Spear Throw. If I was living in Sparta in 435 B.C. and I threw a spear the way I did that day, I would have been dragged behind a horse until dead. Next year, I plan on going for the Trifecta and I will nail the spear throw. For those that don’t know what a trifecta is, it is three races (a 5+ km, a 13+ km, and a 20+ km) all in the same calendar year. In the continuing pursuit of successful MagnaValve® installations, I am going to discuss power supply connections and requirements. I know for some, this sounds like simple stuff. It is only three little connections. How in the world could someone screw that up? But we see MagnaValves and controllers in less than ideal installations all the time.
