Hi,



I have the above Elcon charger, but I don't understand the manual ... the Signal connector has pins labelled A-F, but I don't know which pin is which!


Can anyone help determine them?


Thanks

I am going completely off of memory (which is dubious at best) here but I think that diagram might be wrong. If I remember correctly, when we were testing one of these we were expecting "A" to be top and got a diagram saying so, but when we tried it out it was off by one pin.

I can check on Monday when I go in to work as we do have one of the 3.3 kW versions of this working.

EDIT: Now that I think about it more, I think what might have happened is that they sent us an annotated photograph showing B as the top pin and that THAT is what was wrong.

Regardless, if you don't have it worked out before Monday I can tell you exactly what goes where.

That would be kind. There are so many ways I can screw this up it helps to at least have the right pin ordering!



As I understand it, pins C and E should be ground, but I have tested them for continuity to the charger's chassis and got nowhere.

This is from the XINXI datasheet from their website, but it is not consistent with itself and is labelled in reverse to the picture you posted.

Post a picture of the connector end view--is it labelled also? Do the labels agree with each other?

It's really confusing when the manufacturer screws up their own drawings.

i would guess that they were trying to copy the Amphenol 28482 circular bayonet connectors such as this harness socket, PT06P10-6S. This would mate with your box if the 5 keys lined up.

The 26482 standard layout for the chassis mount matches with your picture.

The problem is, how did the builder wire it up--according to the datasheet or to the label marking in your picture?
