Revision to Connector and spare part numbers

David Crocker

 
The small green component bearing the letters 'bF' is the self-resetting fuse, and the component with stripes is the optional 10K resistor. A piece of Kapton tape was put on the board first to provide additional insulation.
 
=== Blade fuse ===
 
PCB revisions 1.03 and later have a 1A mini auto blade fuse protecting the fan circuits when the fan voltage selection jumper is in the VIN position. Here is an example of a suitable replacement: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/20-x-1Amp-Mini-Blade-Fuses-car/172805157976. You can increase the fuse rating to 2A or even 3A if your fans, air pumps etc. draw more than 1A in total.
