Thanks for the info

is there way to use this connector to make the C-DSP switch between Preset 1 & 2 ?



**Edit**

I found on the audiotec-fischer web site even the real remote cant do it

Hello !
I got the pin match yesterday from audiotec fisher !!



---
Attached you find the pinning of the connector, for identifying the pins look for the asymmetrically aligned pitch.
The shielding is GND.
SUB = subwoofer volume; MAIN = main volume booth 10k potentiometers between 3V3 and GND.
SWITCH = the switch between 3V3 and GND.

At this moment, I can't specify you a release date for the new revision of our software, sorry for that.

Here's my version, with just a bit more info since I took my URC apart.
The bi-colour LED is only necessary if you're using a pushbutton switch that doesn't give any indication as to which state it's in (ie. in/out), but if you use a toggle or rocker switch then you don't need it (unless you like more lights!)

I found the connector at Newark Electronics, their part # 97K5346. $3 - so buy a couple - the pins are tiny and the ABS can melt if you don't solder quickly.

I scored a great deal on a P-DSP and it's on the way! I'm going to go ahead and order the components for the remote, but I have a question: What's the difference between these two micromatch connectors (part numbers): 8-215083-2 and 1-215083-2?

Comparison at Mouser:
TE Connectivity / AMP 8-215083-2 Headers & Wire Housings | Mouser

Comparison at digikey:
Rectangular Connectors - Free Hanging, Panel Mount | Connectors, Interconnects | DigiKey

Alternatively, could someone give me a link for where to purchase the correct connector in the USA?

Difference is the pitch. Correct number is 571-1-215083-2 with a 1.27 pitch as per the first post.

Ahhh...thanks! I for the life of me couldn't find any difference between the two in the product sheet until you pointed that out. Doh!

Hey jDigital...
Methinks you messed up on a couple of parts there. The pots should be linear taper (granted that Log is typical for audio, but the processor expects a linear taper as it is just a control voltage), and the 8-pin connector should be a plug, not a socket. I think that's digi-key #2080-ND.

I have some 10k ohm linear pots already, but wanted log curve also just in case. Are you certain helix takes the linear input and adjusts the volume with a logarithmic curve? I plan to connect the controller using a standard easily replaceable md8 mini din cable. That's my reason for going with a jack instead of a plug.

Okey Dokey. I'm using Linear - though I haven't measured it, it sounds 'correct'. And the ones in the actual remote are linear.
Good idea regarding the 8-pin arrangement - I guess you have a source for a cable?

i tried to Build one of these but it didn,t work.
i tried 50k log and nothing.
i tried 5k linear and nothing.
i will buy a 10k linear tomorrow but i don,t think it,s the problem.
it should adjust even not perfect.
maybe i need to do a setup form the software?

Default Re: How to make your own Remote Controller for Helix and Brax DSPs

Just made my din cable and soldered some leads to my potentiometer. I just have one pot for now for sub, i dont really need the others and may never, but I still soldered all the required pins in the 8pin din connector....

thought a cat5 cable might work well



https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-r...-no/15%2B-%2B1



https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-p...-no/15%2B-%2B1

I used butt connectors for now but i might switch to bullets. I was going to use spade terminals but they don't fit through the nut and lockwasher for that POT, and its a top mount, so the wiring would need to fit through where I mount it. Its super tiny though!
