This PCB is designed to help mounting and wiring pots or LEDs to panels. It uses the 1 inch horizontal spacing standard of Serge panels, and provides mounting for 16 pots or LEDs.

Vertical height is limited by the size of the pots you use. 16mm pots are too large for 1" vertical spacing, so you will need to use 9mm pots in that case. Pads for both footprints are included.

 

 

This diagram shows three of the cells. The two extra, unmarked pads to the left correspond to two pads at the right of the PCB, to allow easy linking between the boards in the unlikely event a 32 pot strip is needed. The board can also be cut to shorter lengths if required.

 

Representative schematic of three cells.

Pad identification:

A Input via RI
B Input (Pot CW)
C LED common
D Out (Pot wiper)
E Pot common (0V)
L LED input via RL
M Mix output from all pots via RM
   

 

Component identification. One of each part is required per cell used, dependent upon the application.

RI Input resistor for use with the A input. This forms a voltage divider with the overall resistance of the pot. A capacitor can be substituted in this location to AC couple the input. If no voltage divider or AC coupling is required, omit this part, and use the B pad as the input.
RL LED current limit resistor. Value depends on LED and voltage used.
RM Summing resistor. If using this board with a sequencer or a mixer, the RM resistor allows for the minimizing of wiring. The value of RM depends upon the circuit with which you are using the PCB.
LED Your choice of LED, if needed.
POT The value of the pots used depends upon the circuit with which you are using the PCB.

 

If you are using the board for pots, you probably won't want the LED related parts, and vice versa.
