Wires for Potentiometers
Get the ribbon cable, JST cables and connectors ready to wire up to the potentiometers. Use the following wire lengths.
- 2x 3-pin JST cables – 80mm
- 6-wire ribbon cable – 126mm
Tin Ribbon Cable Wires
Use wire stripper to remove a bit of insulation from each of the wires. Tin the strands of wire by adding a bit of solder.
Solder JST Connectors
Tin the pins on the JST connectors by adding a bit of solder. Add pieces of heat shrink tubing to three of the six wires from the ribbon cable. Attach the three wires to the 3-pin JST male connector.
Connect three from the ribbon cable to the pins on the potentiometer. Add pieces of heat shrink tubing before soldering. Follow the order of the colors to get the correct polarity.
- White – Middle Pin
- Red/Black – Side Pin
