It really wasn't hard to open the spring release


Spring cage connections work well with tinned wires, unlike screw terminals, these connectors are designed for both solid, and stranded wires.

Use a push pin to open the spring works best. You can push it in and it will stay in place until you pull it out.

Actually what I use is a "straight pin" (snagged from wife's sewing stuff) works good. I think the head of a push pin would get in the way.

I suppose a opened "safety pin" would work also.

The brake spring from an XTR Trail brake works perfectly

On the Duet Wifi Diagram, you have the Hotend Pos/Neg going to E1 on the Duet board, that should be to E0.

So I'm finally getting the time to install my quickclip connector, and I have a couple questions. I'm working with a much upgraded RMax V1, so I obviously don't have a premade wire harness...all of my hotend power, thermistor, hotend fan, and layer fans, all have their own pairs of wires running down to the hotend. I did buy the wire harness to populate, but the fan power has me a little confused. According to the "harness side" part of the pinout guide (http://www.tricklaser.com/media/Quick_C ... n-Out_rev5).pdf), there's only a spot labeled "fan pwm", and on the SeeMeCNC documentation (https://seemecnc.dozuki.com/Document/23/.pdf) that spot is only for fan (-). If I'm reading the circuit traces correctly, the layer fans are powered by the hotend (+) wire, right? But then on the control board side of everything (not using my original rambo anymore, it died a while back and defaulted to a RAMPS 1.4), that means the fan power header only really gets the (-) wire connected...I'm guessing that it will still correctly manage the fan even so?

With the RAMBo boards, the "-" leg is switched, the "+" is common. (someone please correct me if I'm remembering this incorrectly!"

sorry to raise an old post, but are these 24v compatible?

I can't get my LED ring to turn on....I know it works.
80mm ring, looks like it has a resistor already on it.

Anyone know if this is compatible with 24V power supply system? I'm planning to do a full 24V upgrade with the MeanWell SP-750-24 with E3D V6 24V hotend and I couldn't find specifics.

You may have the adjust the current limiting resistors for the LED's, but it should function otherwise.
