[title] Led Strip Assembly
[* black] The Led controller has twothree connections. One to the 24 volt power supply with the red wire going to the “+” and the black wire going to the “-”. You will have to share a screw terminal with the Rambo and Led Controller wires.
[* black] The second is the I2c data connection to the Rambo controller. The I2c is near the endstop inputs to the Rambo board. Arrow in picture below shows the I2c Port. The 3rd is the connection to the second 10 led strip.

[* black] The cable for this connection is keyed and will only fit in one directions into the I2C. ( MM2 upgrade kits with the older version of the Rambo may have to solder a 4 pin male header into the blank I2C holes. Please refer to your paperwork that came with the Rambo board for the exact location of the I2C connector.
[* black] All newer version of the Rambos have this connector installed.
[* black] The cable will need to be routed on the right side of the machine to ensure that the cable can reach the top led strip properly.
[* black] Included in the kit are two pieces of plastic with white protective covering. Remove the protective covering from both sides of the plastic. The longer upper piece can be mounted with M3 screws short for one variation of mounting or long for another listed below.
[* black] The shorter bottom piece of plastic for the Mendelmax 3 text can be mounted with Super Glue or thin double sided adhesive tape. The 6 led strip will mount behind the Mendelmax 3 text. The 10 Leds part of the strip mounts to the top behind the Makers Tool Works text.
[* black] There are several mounting options for the led strips. During beta we found everyone want a bit differnt distance and mounting options. The distance determines to what degree hotspots of the individual leds have. Some mounted the leds to the back of the upper U channel metal.
