 Power can be chained from one OctoBar to the next, simplifying power connections. The screw terminals should be used to transfer power in this way, instead of the small 6-pin data cables. Since each subsequent OctoBar adds up to 2400mA to the current running through the first OctoBar in a chain, no more than four OctoBars should be chained before making another parallel connection to the power supply. Power can be chained from one OctoBar to the next, simplifying power connections.

 +**On OctoBar V1.1 models, the V+ pin is no longer connected to the V+ supply rail. There is a solder jumper on the bottom of the PCB which will allow reconnecting this pin if desired. This will greatly reduce the risk of accidental damage to the OctoBar. All power should be connected to the screw terminals, which are polarity-protected.**
