Protecting PSUs

Most use one PSU per motor to avoid issues.

Some use diodes to protect PSUs: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...er-supply-dps-2000bb-a.6709/page-3#post-76105

Here @BlazinH suggests using a bridge rectifier instead, with @insanegr kindly confirming the wiring: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...ors-mms-and-arduinos.6948/page-31#post-117116

You can alternatively wire a bridge rectifier to double its stated amperage capacity with the only trade off being that the power supplies are no longer protected if you mistakenly connect its power leads backwards: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...ors-mms-and-arduinos.6948/page-31#post-117151
