Well, I replaced the T2X with an old HDR-300 (S/N 40) and it turns the 4 el
Stepp I r fine. But, the digital readout is hosed. As currently wired, I get
no numbers, only three dashes. I climbed to the rotor, pulled the housing off
and confirmed the wiring of the potentiometer. The resistance measurements at
full CCW, half way and full CW are:
Pin 8-9: always 1000 Ohms regardless of position
Pins 8-10: CCW: 520, half: 344, CW: 141 Total range is ~380
Pins 9-10: CCW: 480, half: 656, CW: 861 Total range is ~380
The totals always add to 1000 as expected and the range is about 380 Ohms, near
the specified 400 Ohms for the expected travel and overage.
What bugs me is that the manual says:
I have checked three different revisions of the manual: the oldest that I have,
a newer 300 rev and the 300A rev. The details are the same in terms of the
definitions of what pin goes to what physical terminal on the pot and the Cinch
I pulled the lid on the control box and checked the connector to PCB wiring and
it is correct.
Any suggestions or readings from your rotor would be welcomed.
Like I said, the beam will turn and that is an improvement!
