Wiring the wireless bridge to the robot

Does anyone have a way of doing this? A few members of my team tried to splice the adapter (not sure if that's the right term), and well, either the bridge is fried, or the adapter for it is fried.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated, especially with the lack of time.

Re: Wiring the wireless bridge to the robot

make sure you connect the right wire to the + and - terminals. the manual states that the striped wire (has white marks on it) is the positive lead. it sounds as if you may have switched them by accident.

Re: Wiring the wireless bridge to the robot

Okay, I got the connector and what not. How exactly do you get the wires in it? I know which goes where, but I wasn't watching anyone doing this. I was waiting for it to be done so I could test the programming, seeing as they did this without my knowledge before I could do any testing.

Here's what Section 3.2.6 Troubleshooting and FAQ of the 2009 FRC Control System Manual has to say about that:

How do I build a cable for passing 12V power to the WiFi adapter?
  • Take the module's power adapter and cut the wire off close to the Wall-Wart.
  • Separate the wires and strip 7mm off the ends.
  • To insert wire into a WAGO 734-102 connector, push down on the actuation port in back. Alternatively, use the plastic actuation lever.
  • Insert the positive (striped) wire in the right port of the WAGO 734-102 connector.
  • Insert the negative wire in the left port of the WAGO 734-102 connector.
  • Give a smart tug to verify the connection is secure.
  • Insert the WAGO 734-102 into the mating connector on the PD.
  • Power the PD, and verify that the barrel connector's centor conductor is positive.

Re: Wiring the wireless bridge to the robot

Its a wego connector. Use the wego tool or a small screwdriver to open the connector and insert the stripped wire. You are connecting the wireless bridge power to the 12 volt connector on the power distribution board right?
