[title] Hot End Negative / Bed Thermistor
[* black] Thread the Black 20awg negative power wire from the Hot End Whip through the injection molded motor mount on the X tower. Cut it to length and strip back the wire about 2mm.
[* black] The black 20awg wire from the hotend whip can now be attached to the terminal block as indicated in the photo. You may need to rotate the screw counter clockwise before inserting the wire to open the terminal, as it may be closed from the factory.
[* black] The Bed Thermistor can be ran as shown in the pictures. If your Bed thermistor leads are not long enough to make that travel. You can just run it over the board and plug it in.
[* black] The Bed Thermistor wire will still have the SL Crimp connector attached. So it will only plug in one way. There is no polarity in Thermistor wires.
[* icon_note] You can change the connector to one of the 2pin connectors provided in the Duet Connectors bag. But this require installing KK crimps and that can be difficult to get right without the proper tool. It will work fine with the existing SL 2pin though.
+[* icon_caution] Make sure the green terminal block DOES NOT twist, it could rip off and cause you to replace your entire Duet! You may need to CAREFULLY hold it with pliers while tightening the screw.
