So finally, maybe, getting my VFD install started this weekend. I won't even think I could finish it this weekend, too. That's just foolish thinking there. Ha! So I've got shielded cables for the motor power and control wires. One thing I'm curious about is how you guys are terminating the shielded cables' grounds. I'm thinking backshells would be overkill, and expensive. I've heard pigtails are a big no-no because of the round form that will increase impedance. I was thinking of getting some copper braid off some coax I have and wrapping that around the end of the cable and bring it out to a ground screw. How you guys doing it?
