Steps to connect the Felix display to a Felix 2.0 printer?

Post by Danny-Lelystad »

Is there anybody who knows how to connect the display from felix?

It got 2 connectors, the big one from display is clear, the small one from jog fits in 2 ways. And do u need to change a setting in the firmware?

A little description in the delivery would make things clear Guillaume ;)

Hello

How long have you been waiting for your unit?
I ordered mine 01.06.2013 and it haven't shipped yet, is this normal?

@Danny-Lelystad: Does the jog cable connector have a small arrow on one of it's sides? That normally indicates pin 1 (marked on the PCB).

You'll also need a slightly adjusted firmware to get the LCD and jog wheel working.

Hopefully Guillaume can answer soon and upload the needed firmware adjustments.

Well on both connectors are alignment notches, but they are on the middle and on the pcb there is a number 1 pin on each connector. But the part which makes it confusing is the fact that the cable orientation for both connectors is different.
Would be nice if there's a little explanation for this display :)
