Jumper for EGT RTD Sensor

Hello,

 

I am about to buy a AEM RTD EGT Sensor, #30-2050

AEM Wizards says i need to change the internal jumper to work.. because it´s setted to 0-5v input and not RTD.

 

1) What jumper is it? How i locate it on the series 2 board?

2) What pin i should use to connect the RTD correct? I have a 30-6040 EMS.

 

 

Thankz

You'll be setting the jumper

You'll be setting the jumper position for the EGT input therefore you'd select one of the EGT inputs to connect your RTD sensor to.  This would be either D2, D5, D9 or D10 on a 6040.  You'll have to disassemble the EMS to remove the PCBs and then separate the boards from each other.  The best process for getting the 100 pin connector apart is to work the boards back and forth (with all the mounting hardware removed first of course) like opening and closing a book with the 100 pin connector being the "spine" of the book.  You'll need to work the boards back and forth to wiggle them loose for a few minutes while gently and evenly applying outward pressure to pull the connectors apart.  You must absolutely avoid pulling one end out before the other otherwise you risk bending the pins which will making re-assembling the boards difficult or impposible.  Once you get the boards apart, you'll see where the EGT jumpers are located on the adapter board.  There is a silk screen on the board that shows the different jumper configurations.  

If you're not comfortable with this process, you can contact tech support to see about sending your unit in to have us set the jumper for you.  It'd be better to do that than risk ruining your EMS.  Also, please be aware that you assume all risk in doing this procedure should you attempt to do this yourself.
