BeePre 2.0 Manual Errata
« on: February 20, 2021, 02:49:13 PM »
I made a mistake in the BeePre 2.0 manual build and recommend applying the following correction:

For the 22 ohm 5W resistor with the UF4007 diodes and 0.1uF Z5U cap, those parts should be installed between 33L and 35L.  These directions are provided on page 33, and you can attach and solder these parts to 35L, then attach the other end to 33L and continue with the build.  These parts will work better if the resistor lead at 33L doesn't touch the shaft of the screw holding down the terminal strip.

We will work on updating the manual for future orders shortly.  The 12-22-20 version of the manual contains this error.

Hello,

Was this error ever corrected in the manual? I purchased a BeePre kit around two weeks ago and would like to take account for this change if it is still in my directions.

Best!

The 02-28-21 manual I have says: "Keeping its body centered between the terminal strips, attach one lead of the prepared 22Ω 5W wirewound resistor to 35L. Attach the other lead to 33L. Solder 32L."

I assume – ignore the "solder 32L" instruction?
Can you PM me your e-mail address and I can send you a link for the updated manual?  There's a rather important update that's not present in your manual regarding this part of the build.
