Wiring Delta Skybar to sPOD

I apologize in advance if this is a silly question, but I really have no idea what I’m doing from an electrical and wiring standpoint, hence the sPOD.

Anyways, this is a diagram of how you would normally wire the Skybar. The sPOD seems to eliminate the need for almost all of this except the yellow wires which connects directly to the sPOD.



The sPOD has a connection for the switch and ground.



My question is am I ok attaching the 2 yellow wires to a switch each with the one ground wire? I might be wrong, but I feel like there should be 1 ground wire to go with 1 yellow wire. I am a visual person so here is my interpretation of how this would look.



I might be over thinking this, but I just want to ensure that I don’t mess this up. Thank you very much!

depends on if you want two switches or one! The SPod has a separate ground for each switch - but they all go to one ground for the whole unit so it does not really matter.

Connect BOTH yellow wires to same sw lug and the ground to that switches ground for one switch operation.

Connect the yellows just as you have diagrammed for two switch operation. (why two circuits? Is the light set a high\low set or does one switch operate half while the other operates the other half?).

The SPod can handle 30Amps per circuit (just checked specs on Delta product - 27.5 with all lit). But two switches would give you the ability to use all or some rather all or none!

Good question, Iím not exactly sure. I think the latter is correct. So Iím good with the 1 ground with 2 separate switches?

yes you are. All of the ground lugs in the spod go directly to the big ground term. The light bar uses a single ground so all will work fine. It would also work grounding the black wire anywhere - but I like dedicated grounds and the SPod's ability to accomodate that!
