Possible typo on page 14?
« on: December 29, 2013, 10:15:24 AM »
The last step on page 14...Should the red wire be connecting to the course switch instead of the fine switch?  The photos look like the connection is to the coarse switch.

Thanks,
David

Thanks for finding that, you are correct, that is the coarse switch.

Further typos Pg14, 3rd & 4th paragraphs:

Should it be in the 3rd paragraph: '...red wire connected to A3......' (not A2)
4th paragraph '......white wire connected to B3.....'  (not B2)

Can you confirm this, otherwise it doesn't make sense?

And just a suggestion, since there are already 'A' terminals designated in the BeePre, it's a tad confusing with 'A' terminals in the BeeQuiet, why not call them 'Z' or something else.

The numbering confusion comes from an earlier version of the BeePre manual that had mis-numbered 4-pin sockets. Since this is a wire that is already soldered into place with the stock build, anyone applying an upgrade will already have them in the correct place. Therefore the number doesn't matter, as long as you are using the only loose red/white wire leading to a 4 pin socket.

As for the confusion about the A terminals, you can choose whichever reason you like for it not being all that confusing: 4 pin sockets don't have an upper and lower terminal, only the first four are even in contention, none of the instructions for terminals A1-A4 show a socket. Changing it would mean a major difference in-between manual versions and make support much more challenging.

Thanks Joshua. I just like to confirm these things & usually go through all manuals pre-build to understand the process.
And you never how literally someone might take what is written.

Yeah ok about the numbering, my experience with tech manuals is to make them as unequivocal as possible, just my 2c. ;D

I thought I lost my mind when I was wiring this! Why was I re-soldering the same lug? Where’d that other wire go?
