View Full Version : broken I/O breakout box

01/14/2010, 10:53 AM
I broke off several of the little white pins that clamp down the wires in my I/O breakout box despite using pretty thin wire. I also can't seem to get the pins back in. Is the I/O breakout box essentially a wire to the Apex with serial like connection on one end and terminal block/ barrier strip (or whatever they're called) on the other? And if so, then can i just cut the I/O wire and use a terminal block on the end not connected to the Apex? And if i do so what colors correspond to what strip numbers? I suppose i could meter all the wires but easier if someone knows the color codes.
