Thanks Allex. But I'm a bit confused. It looks like you converted from a 5 pin Crystallite std XLR to some other 6 pin plug, so you could eliminate the extra plug for the temp sensor. So I'm unsure how to use that information. I do understand you loud and clear about looking for better plug types!Allex wrote:Here is my old connector on the left, just use a small iron tip and you will be fine
Now I would not recommend resuing them as they are not waterproof, just google for "waterproof connectors" and you will get a tons of alternatives
I'm fairly sure I've ripped wires out of the inside of the female plug in my photo. And possibly damaged the shell on the plug. I'll find out in the morning.
If more than one wire broke away, then maybe I wont be able to see which wire went to what terminal. I haven't even checked yet, since it was dark when I got home (long pedal + push) then I had to go somewhere.
Do you know if the 5 wire colours in the hub loom will directly match the colours in the controller loom?
Do you think that if the broken wires with exposed copper touched in the wrong places (while I stuffed around sometimes with the power on) then I might have toasted my hall sensors? Stupid I didn't think more carefully when I was out on the trail.
What is interesting, is that if I had cheaper XLR connectors that pulled apart with out the sliding clip lock, then the plug would have come apart, and I'd just plug it back together and keep on riding. Like the phase wire plugs. They're good since the will pull apart and nothing breaks if tugged hard enough.
I like that ebay link. Something like that looks good. Lots of water crossing where I go. And often very rough terrain with loose or fixed objects everywhere. Thank you.
