EFG Deluxe off board pot advice

Post by Blake Smith » Sun Nov 10, 2019 1:14 pm

Hi there,

I'm wiring up an EFG Deluxe and I'm wondering if anyone can answer a question on the 2 off board pots.

The build guide indicates there should be a wire connection between the CCW lug of the pot and the round pad, but there are 2 round pads to chose from on the issue 6.1 board so I'm wondering which one to use.

Thanks.

Sorry, I think I've figured it out. I didn't connect that pin 3 was referring to the 3rd pad over on the pcb. I assume the middle pad is for grounding if you want?

Yes. The pots' solder pads have three pins, 1, 2, and 3 in that order, with pin 1 being the square pad. Ignore the middle pad, pin 2, if you are just using a twisted pair of wires to each pot.
