Note: The following steps (#3-5) can be followed to attach the three control systems to the field.


3. Un-pop the short extrusion from both the top and bottom T-connectors.

  • Place nylock nuts into the nut pockets in the T-connectors.
  • Then re-pop the extrusion onto the connectors.


Note: ensure the nylock nuts are inserted in the correct orientation.


4. Attach the driver interface to the short extrusion using two 8-32 screws.

  • Ensure the screws are fully tightened and the driver interface is secure.


5. Determine location to attach the match controller.
