I am about to start experimenting with various motors (from Banebot (http://banebots.com/osc/support/gearmotor_comp.htm), mostly; I already have a few) and the latest version of the MotorMind Be. I am using the BoE Rev C. with the Parallax wall transformer to power the BoE. I communicate with the BOE via my tablet PC's USB connector to a Parallax USB to serial converter to the BoE. I will power the various motors with a variable DC power supply.

Question: How do I ensure all the grounds are tied together properly? (As I see it, the components are my tablet PC, the BoE driven by the wall transformer, and the variable power supply driven by 110Vac.

Thanks for your help.

ps [This is the edit.] I forgot to mention that I have that monster 61 rpm RS-545 (http://banebots.com/osc/product_info.php?products_id=234), also! I am not quite sure what a person might use this motor for . . . I am thinking of using it in the lift for my Sportster!)

Bill goes "bump" in the night; actually, early in the morning, but that's not important right now.
