Then mount the Farmduino into the electronics box with four M2.5 x 4mm screws.
Insert the microSD card into the Raspberry Pi. Then mount the Pi into the electronics box with four M2.5 x 4mm screws.
Press the Pi Adapter Board onto the Raspberry Pi GPIO pin header.
Mount the five push buttons and four LED indicator lights into the top holes in the electronics box. Ensure the colors correspond as shown in the following image.
Connect the Raspberry Pi power cable to the Farmduino’s
Power Out USB connector and the Raspberry Pi’s
Power In microUSB connector.
Connect the Farmduino data cable between one of the Raspberry Pi’s USB ports and the Farmduino’s
Data In USB port.
Connect the USB adapter cable to one of the Raspberry Pi’s USB ports. The free end should be placed in the lower left corner of the box.
Connect the button and LED wiring harnesses, ensuring each Button/LED is connected to the correct location on the Pi Adapter Board according to the following image.
Insert the lid gasket into the lid, ensuring it is fully seated into the channel.
Attach the lid to the electronic box using two M3 x 35mm screws and M3 locknuts. The nuts should be tightened enough so that the screws do not rattle, but they should not be so tight that the lid’s tabs are compressing and rubbing against the electronics box. The lid should open and close freely with no resistance.
Attach the latches to the lid using two M3 x 35mm screws and M3 locknuts. The nuts should be tightened enough so that the screws do not rattle, but they should not be so tight that the lid’s tabs are compressing and rubbing against the latches. The latches should be able to rotate with no resistance.
