Meade ETX 125 circuit board..

#1

Post by Pitsmoor Col » Sat Jan 25, 2020 12:56 pm

I have managed obtain a new gearbox for my ETX125. It's the newer type that just plugs in, I could just swop the internals but would rather use the new board if possible. on my ETX there are Four wires coming out of the base and soldered in to the circuit board, the new type has a plug that plugs into the new board, if I could get a plug I could solder it on and just plug it in but I would need to know the order of the wires. Can any one help with this ? cheers Colin..

I have decided to swap the cogs, So I am hopeful of a successful outcome.
