I have a DC board that will be controlling my system. As part of my system, I need to toggle an AC motor on and off. At the moment, I have the hot wire off of my mains connection going into a terminal block, through a relay, out through a terminal block, then out to my motor. The neutral and ground wires are going straight from my input mains connector to my output connector.
Does not bringing the grounding wires onto my board present a safety issue? I feel like it won't, but I haven't worked with mains before and am a little hesitant to say it with certainty.
