Parts for the PCB for Multi-Trigger Kit (MT-PCB1)

 

Assembly instructions for other kits

 

Parts Guide (MT-PCB1)

 

Below is a list of the parts that you need to prepare the PCB for the Multi-Trigger, version 1. Click on the photos for larger images. The column "PCB Label" gives the label imprinted on the PCB. So this will make it easy to see where to place parts. The column labeled "Parts provided in the MT-PCB1 kit" indicates the parts that are included with the MT-PCB1 kit. The column labeled "Parts from the Multi-Trigger(MT) kit" indicates the parts that you need to provide from a Multi-Trigger kit that you already own or that you purchase in addition to the MT-PCB1.

 

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.
