Hello Gents
I am setting up my GBOX positioner and a venture 24" ball screw actuator.
The connections for the reed switch on the back of the GBOX are polarize +/-, the wiring schematics for the reed switch on the actuator are not polarize. the terminal strip has to wires black and purple and there are label pulse/pulse.
I need to know how to wire it up, to which color wire the positive wire from the GBOX connects to, or does it matter which wire it connects to.
If any of the members here has a similar setup I would appreciate any comments.
Please let me know.
Thanks in advance.
Chewie

Polarity on the sensor doesn't matter. Hook the motor power up and see if it drives the correct way. If it drives opposite, just reverse the motor leads.

Do not connect the sensor to the motor leads, you could damage the reed switches.
