    P1900 is this pair of wires for ACPI?

    Hi all - I just received my P1900 v2.2 and I'm trying to identify the pair of wires in the pic below. The colours don't seem right based on the manual but are these the isolated ACPI wires?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    I thought the ACPI wires on the P1900 were thin and plugged into a header.

    What does the manual say about that location?

    The problem is the manual is kind of unclear on this spot. It looks like this is where JP3 is (which is supposed to be the isolated ACPI relays) but it also says they're supposed to be green and black.

    Not sure if this is related but the P1900 I got is v2.2. The only manuals I can find are for v2.0 and v2.1 - maybe something changed since the last version??

    Check them with a multimeter. First, check them for voltage. If you don't find any, check them for continuity when you apply power to the accessory input.

    Just had an email back from Carnetix support and it is indeed the ACPI wiring... no real difference between v2.1 and v2.2 apparently.

    I'll still test with a multimeter before wiring everything up.

    Thanks again for your help, BugByte!
