Connecting BLTouch to control board

Postby A6y_N0rma1 » Sun Oct 28, 2018 3:50 pm

I'm hoping that someone can give me clear directions on how to connect the two sets of wires from a BLTouch to the control board on my N2. I've looked at the instructions at vilify.se, and at viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1030. I think I understand the Brown/Red/Orange connection to the +5v pair and the pin on EXP3. What I'm not sure of is do I disconnect the existing White/Black pair on Z- and substitute the BLTouch pair instead, leaving the old connector unused?

Yes, disconnect the Z- and plug the black and white wires from BLTouch there. Also, you will need a compatible firmware.

Thanks Phife. Do you know the type of connector that's on the current Z switch? Looks similar to a JST, but don't think it is.
