Jupiter Molex to Power Poles conversion
Having successfully converted the Molex connector on my Orion to PP, I decided to proceed and convert my Jupiter as well. In the Jupiter the power supply board is given slack to get access to the Molex pins. This involves removal of four screws and some edge connectors.
Parts needed: PP, half of retaining plate and 1/16 (1.57mm) brass tube.
Thanks to Rick VE7TK for saying that it's O.D. NOTE: Powerwerx.com has the Printed Circuit Board connector instead of having to roll your own. SKU 1377G3
