Q143 Right Angle Battery Connections on PDP and Plastic Cover

Post by Robot »

Q143: In past years (2020 and before), were were able to use Right Angle Connectors on the PDP main input connection (6 AWG or larger) (R609) still attached with the M6 screws and tape over the Battery input connections since the plastic cover would not work (interferre) and we were not allowed to modify the battery cover. This is still acceptable, correct?
A:
Per !R710-P the input cover on the PDP may be omitted. Any connector may be used to connect to the PDP provided it complies with !R623.
