Installing Buttons

Get the 16 buttons ready to panel mount to the top cover. Remove the hex nuts by unscrewing them from the body of each button.

Panel Mount Buttons

Start by installing one button. Insert the body of the button through the hole. While holding it in place, fasten the hex nut onto the button.

To make the wiring easier, ensure all sixteen buttons are orientated the same. This will help keep the wiring tidy as well.

Tightly fasten the hex nuts to secure the buttons to the top cover.

Numbering Buttons for Wiring

Each button will need to wired to the Raspberry Pi Pico and LED Driver. The numbering of the buttons is important and should be planned before wiring.

Take a moment to review the numbering scheme of the buttons. This will help you ensure the buttons are soldered to the correct pins.

Installed Buttons

The first button starts from the the top right. The numbering scheme appears reversed because we'll be soldering from the back view of the top cover.

Reference the image for the assigned button numbers.
