GB3 to GB3+ LED Light Strip Wiring

Tools Needed: 

  • Large flat head screwdriver
  • Hemostat
  • Right angle Philips head screwdriver

Important Safety Information: Disconnect your Gigabot from power and make sure it is turned off during the installation process!

Instructions: 

  1. Remove the cover on the Panduit near the power switch and upper Z-limit switch.
  2. Remove the cover on the Panduit on the lower right side of your Gigabot’s frame.
  3. Remove the cover on the Panduit on the rear footer.
  4. On the bottom of the electrical box, identify the unused grommet and remove the grommet cap.
  5. Using a flat head screwdriver, open the electrical box.
  6. Feed the LED light strip wire through the grommet and into the electrical box.
  7. Remove the Panduit cover inside the electrical box.
  8. Remove the plastic guard on the power supply terminals and identify which ones are positive and negative. (red wire=positive, black wire=negative)
  9. The LED light strip is easiest to wire into a positive and negative terminal that are right next to each other. If there are already wires occupying these terminals, you may need to re-position some of the wires.
  10. Using the right angle Phillips head screwdriver, loosen the two screws on the terminals you are installing the LED wires into. Insert the ends of the LED wire into the terminals using the hemostat, re-tighten, and replace the plastic cover. (Refer to the wiring diagram below.) 
  11. Route the LED wire through the Panduit in the electrical box and replace the Panduit cover.
  12. Route the connector end of the LED wire through the grommet cap and fasten the cap to the grommet.
  13. Close and lock the electrical box cover using the flat head screwdriver.
  14. Route the LED wire through the Panduits you previously uncovered, and replace the covers.
  15. Plug the connector end into the LED strip.
  16. Plug in and power on your Gigabot to ensure the light is working properly.
