Hi group,

A visitor to the Big Island of Hawaii brought his New Gemini upgrade

kit to use with my G-11 mount and he forgot the 12V power cable at

home! Can somebody specify the pin outs for that cord? This is for

the DIN power connector. What pin is +12V and what pin is

negative? We will try to fabricate a cable.



Thank you in advance,



Aloha and Mahalo!

Wayne

Wayne,



The two pins on the left are + and the two on the right are -.



I'm pretty sure the Gemini is protected against reverse polarity

hook-up, so I don't think you can damage anything, even if you get

it wrong.



Take Care,

Hi James,



Left while looking at the pins or the solder cups? I don't recall, it's

been a while since I built one, and I'm too lazy to pull the cover off to

look G>.

Chuck,



Are you in Hawaii ::he asks jealously::?



If you are looking at the Gemini control panel, and the power

connectors are down, and the autoguider port is up, then the two

pins (sockets) on the left are + and the two pins on the right are -



I don't think you have to make sure that both pins on the left are

hooked to + and that both pins on the right are hooked to -



Just one on each side should get the job done.



Like I said, though I'm pretty sure that the Gemini is protected

against reverse polarity, so there is nothing to worry about if you

get it wrong the first time.



Heh. Forgetting a power cord. Sounds like something I would do;

forgot counterweight shaft once; forgot battery once; etc.



Take Care,

No James, I wish. I was just trying to get the answer clarified for the

lucky guy in Hawaii who asked the question.
