So in the beginning of my first Proffie attempt, I chose to build my thin neck saber using a removable chassis with 2 Shtokworks NPXL V3 shortpins running in parallel. I chose this setup partly because it was the easiest for my beginner level skills, and partly because I couldn’t really think of any advantage to doing it differently.
The Shtokworks PDF shows 4 possible wiring methods, parallel being the V2. There’s a brief blurb about what it means to use each method, but I’m having trouble understanding exactly what the practical application of the 4 different setups are.
Can anyone break it down into simple terms for me?
Cool, thank you.
So how many “blades” does each version create.
For #define NUM_BLADES
I’m running V2, and a NUM_BLADES 1, so I know that works. I’m guessing v1 is the same
What about V3 and v4? 3 blades?
Thank you sir. Think I got it now.
In the V3 and V4 configuration, the emitter PCB, and the one at the top of the removable chassis are 1 blade, with the actual saber blade being another,and the 2 NPXL PCBs will always mirror each other.
Does that sound about right?
Well, if you have two NPXL pcbs, there are a lot more options, like 3 wires, but many of those requires more wires.
Oooh, ok, so in theory, you could run the chassis NPXL connector as 1 blade, the emitter NPXL as a second, and the actual blade as a 3rd?
Assuming you have a way to connect an extra wire between the emitter NPXL and the board…
The chasis NPXL should be easy to wire as a 2-wire setup though.
