After watching Brian’s latest video on setup, I went back to make sure I had things hooked up as should be. I found out that my work switch isn’t working. Thanks for the video!!!
Brian’s V2 PCB.
I downloaded the latest version - as of Sat. AM. Deleted all old versions and installed new.
My work switch is as per the parts list (11/8/2019) that’s when I got parts. It’s a Proximity switch LJ12A3-4-7/BY from Amazon.
I have it hooked to the steer switch (on the PCB) O and COM. At the point where I join the wires from the switch and the wires from the board, I’m hooked to what I consider + & -. the center or signal wire is not hooked to anything coming from the switch.
I can send the change as a switch or a button in module setup (the values will change 5 & 7 as I send the changes), but when I activate the switch it’s self the numbers don’t change - just the indicator light on the switch goes on and off. What do I need to do differently?
Sorry, I’ve never seen this one, Brian. I was referring to the "Hardware, Software, setup you posted just a few day’s ago. I didn’t hear the part when you mentioned the proximity switch. Entirely a problem on my end. Thanks to all for setting me straight.
I did not try to decode that part number but the PNP switch should work like described in the attached diagram. It pulls up the signal line but in the AOG PCB2 the signal line is already pulled up by a resistor and the isolation switch activates if the signal line is pulled down. Just like a short between O and GND does.
I plugged everything in and I am now getting 11.6V. I can jump O & GND and the “switch” works in AOG (it will change from 5 to 7). I can’t get the existing switch to work so I ordered the right one. There is no sense fighting this.
