Hi All,

I have 3 separate Earth wires connected into an existing controller board. These 3 wires all have ring terminals and were hooked to a single brass earth bolt connector on the board. Now, As I'm replacing this board, I realised the new replacement board only has one Earth screw terminal.
What are my options rather than striping the 3 ring terminals and connecting all into this 1 terminal?

4 port wago 221. 3 in, 1 out.
 
Hello, long time reader of this forum but never posted before.Just a quick thought that on the link it says that the connectors are for solid core conductors and the cores in the picture seems stranded. I have never used wago type connectors personally so not sure how they are with stranded cores.

Thanks for the heads up! will look at the wago for stranded cable. Cheers
the wago push fit suit 7 strand cable, but for fine stranded you need the 221 lever type.
