Push Button Wiring

 

Right click these images, and select 'Open Image in New Tab' - These will be the wiring diagrams you will refer to for this section

Note: When you flip the board over to feed the wires through, the pins are 'reversing' order.
So Pin 9 from the top side is on the far right, and when you turn it over, Pin 9 is on the far left side.

So I'm including both diagrams for those who may get mixed up with these types of things.


FEEDSIDE


Now you need need to feed your wires through the PCB from the underside, one at a time, and solder in place. The holes are a bit smaller then the guage of the wiring listed in parts used. The best way to feed the wires, is to strip the wire back as shown


WIRE1


Now half the amount of exposed wires, as shown here. Twist both wires as tightly as possible. Then clip away the folded down side as close as possible, so you do not have any strands poking out.

Leaving you with this


WIRE3


Now you will easily be able to feed your wires through without splitting, or getting jammed.

Flip the board over, lay the exposed wire flat, and squeese it as tight as possible. This image is before centering the wire. You want to be sure it is stright in place, so no strands are touching other connections.

If they do, you will have a single button trigger two. It will not cause any harm, but will require you to de-solder the wire and try again.

After the first wire is soldered in place, move on to the next one, and work right to left (Pad 9 to Pad 1)


After all wires are soldered, it will look like this

Feed all your wires down the center of the buttons to the rear, and mount the PCB back on it's stands

Adjusting the ground wire chain so it is nicely tucked away.

If you insert the button panel and it does not push in all the way, simple remove it, take the bottom back off

and re-adjust the ground wires at the PCB, try again.

Put the base back on, screw it in with the 4 screws, and insert to the system
