Instructions for N-series camera confusing or wrong

Postby EldRick » Fri Sep 14, 2018 7:21 pm

Vicki - Looking at the installation instructions for the N-series camera, on Page 2, step 4, there are three diagrams. Two of them show the camera mounted in the right-front corner, while the one in the center shows it going in the right-rear.

Is this an error, or perhaps a diagram for the N1? Which is correct for an N2 - right-front?

Thanks for your information.
The image in center should be wrong. The Camera should be mounted into right -front corner.

Sorry about that, we will fix it soon.

I am also confused. The instructions say to use the adhesive on the camera but my camera came with screws. There is nowhere on the printer to actually attach these screws.

The screws came together with camera should be used on N1 printers. If you have N2/N2 Plus printer, please stick the camera into the corner.

The camera would be easier to attach if it actually came with double-sided tape. None was included with my camera package.

It should be included with double-side tape attached. Will inform the factory to pay special attention to this.

On mine, no double-sided tape, the wire was already installed, and the protective lens covering was on the outside of the camera, not the inside.

The guy who writes the instructions needs to talk to the guys who make the cameras.

We will double check the currently design and update the instruction.
Apologize for any confuse brought.

Sorry about that. Checked with the factory, the tape is newly added because of customer's feedbacks about the installation.

My camera upgrade for N2 also just arrived and does not include the tape and has the cable already installed with the lens cover able to be removed without opening it. I guess I'll go out and get some mounting tape :|

Step 7 for the wiring was also somewhat confusing. The first two images make it look like you feed the cable on the right side by the filament and then behind to the chain mount, but the 3rd and 4th photos make it look like you go around the left side. I've attached photos of what my box came with and where I'm guessing the wire should go on the right side, is this the correct place?

The pictures for Step7 want to show feed the cable from front right corner to go through the right with filament side and then to back side until reaches to the mounting of cable chain mounting at left rear corner.

After installing mine, I'd say disconnect the cable from the camera so you can feed the cable down from the cable chain mount, and reconnect the cable to the camera once you have it run to the filament-spool area.
