FeatherWing Assembly

PCBs and Hardware

Gather the hardware needed to secure the Triper FeatherWing to the PCB mounting plate. Solder the headers to the Triper and Feather Wings if you haven't already. Here's a quick list of screws used.

  • 4x M2.5 x 5mm standoff
  • 4x M2.5 hex nuts
  • 4x M2.5 button head machine screws
  • 3x M3 x 5mm standoff
  • 3x M3 hex nuts
  • 3x M3 x 5mm flat head machine screws

Install PCB Standoffs

Start by fastening the M2.5 nylon standoffs to the four mounting holes on the corners of the PCB mounting plate. Insert and fasten hex nuts to the standoffs and then hand tighten.

Mounting Plate Standoffs

Install the three M3 standoffs onto the mounting plate. Insert them on the other side of the mount, so they are protruding away from the M2.5 nylon standoffs. Fasten M3 hex nuts to secure the standoffs to the mounting plate.

Tripler FeatherWing

Place the Adafruit Tripler FeatherWing over the four nylon standoffs and line up the mounting holes. Insert and fasten 4x M2.5 x 5mm nylon screws to secure the PCB to the standoffs. Be cautious not to over tighten the nylon screws.

Installing FeatherWings

The mounting holes on the corners of the Triper FeatherWing are symmetrical, so it can be secured in reversed. (if needed). The Prop-Maker FeatherWing, M4 Express and Precision RTC FeatherWing can be installed onto the headers of the Adafruit Tripler FeatherWing. Just be sure to match up the rows of headers before snap fitting them on top.
