Assembly instructions for other kits

 

Parts Guide (MT-PCB2, rev. 2 & 3)

 

Below is a list of the parts supplied with the PCB for the Multi-Trigger, revisions 2 & 3. Click on the photos for larger images. The column "PCB Label" gives the label imprinted on the PCB. This will make it easy to see where to place parts.

 

If you are also preparing the optional Quick-Connect Kit, the parts for that kit are listed here.

 

Resistors

Capacitors

LEDs

Semiconductors and sockets

Switches and jacks

Transducers and optoelectronics

Cables, wire, etc.

 

We may occasionally make changes to the parts list without notice in order to improve the product.
