Parts for the PCB conversion for the Multi-Trigger breadboard enclosure (MTEconv)

 

Assembly instructions for other kits

 

Parts Guide (MTEconv)

 

The MTE conversion kit provides the additional parts you need to convert a working Multi-Trigger Enclosure with breadboard to a Multi-Trigger Enclosure with PCB.

  • The column "PCB Label" gives the labels imprinted on the PCB for the corresponding part.
  • The X's in the column "Part from existing Multi-Trigger assembly" are those parts that you should already have and will move from the breadboard to the PCB.
  • The X's in the column "New part provided in conversion kit" are the additional parts that you'll need. As you can see, there aren't many.
  • If there is no X in either column, then the part is not used in the conversion.

R6 22-kΩ fixed 22k resistor red-red-orange X    
R8 100-kΩ variable linear taper pot       This variable resistor is not used in the conversion. The MTE uses a selector switch for the timeout function. The necessary resistors are already wired to the box lid.
R9 100-Ω fixed 100-ohm resistor brown-black-brown X    
R10 100-Ω fixed 100-ohm resistor brown-black-brown X    
R11 470-Ω fixed 470-ohm resistor yellow-violet-brown X   This resistor is already mounted on the box lid.
R12 1-kΩ fixed 1k resistor brown-black-red X    
R13 1-kΩ variable linear taper pot   X    
R14 1-MΩ variable linear taper pot   X    
R15 100-kΩ variable linear taper pot   X    
R16 10-kΩ variable linear taper pot   X    
R17 470-Ω fixed 470-ohm resistor yellow-violet-brown X    
R18 470-Ω fixed 470-ohm resistor yellow-violet-brown X    
R19 100-Ω fixed 100-ohm resistor brown-black-brown   X  
  100-Ω fixed 100-ohm resistor brown-black-brown X   This resistor is already mounted on the box lid.

Most of these parts were provided either as part of your original Multi-Trigger Enclosure or your Multi-Trigger breadboard kit. You will have already used the parts to prepare your cables and wire your enclosure. Some additional wire and self-grip Velcro straps are provided in the conversion kit.
