    Powermate Wiring

    I have a powermate that I dismantled to mod into the dash and then had some probles with it and ended up getting another one.

    That was some time ago and I just came across the old one and am willing to give it one more try on a diff setup.

    The only prob is that i have the board and the cord but only can remember that the red/blk go on the outsides and wht/grn on the insides...

    I did have it written down at one point but now it would be easier to find a needle in a hay stack...

    Could someone that has their apart or still has it written down and post it, before I toss the expensive piece in the can...

    Thanks...

    its std. USB color coding. it works for external devices as well as for internal USB connectivity:

    pin 1 - red
    pin 2 - white
    pin 3 - green
    pin 4 - black

    this is an order. it will work for you either this way or exactly reversed way - depending on way you look at it. you can try to solder it either way - if it does not work for you, you can be sure you have not damaged anything, just solder it other way to make it work.

    I got delivery of my PowerMate a couple of days ago. Plugged it in, worked, so the next step was obviously to pull it apart. (That's what happens when I buy electronics)

    Looking at the PCB from above (ie, the shaft sticking out twoards you) and the cable connectors at the bottom, it is as laguna said .. red,white,green,black. Just be real careful you don't join two of the pads with a dab of solder.

    I was quite happy to find that the powermate is quite small inside without all the metal casing. Will fit much better into my dash now, and with a new knob.

    Thanks...

    But I did try both ways, and I think that the first time that I did I had the +/- backwards. After that I was too late.

    I will also say that your description was better detailed that laguna's

    so the next step was obviously to pull it apart.(That's what happens when I buy electronics)
    Me too...I have a thing for pulling things apart...working or not
