I am in need of a measurement on a VS2, Tadao, or Virtue board in order to make the X-Customs Hall FX Kit (http://www.spyder.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=11659) compatible with these boards. If anyone has one of these boards, a multimeter, and a few minutes, please PM me. I really appreciate any help.

Thanks!


For those that are not familiar with the term multimeter but may have one:

What pins/connections do you need measurements for? Trigger voltage?

With any of the boards, place the read lead of the multimeter on the unopened port of the 3-pin header and the black lead on the black/ground port of the 3-pin header (top). I need two checks with this:

1. What is the voltage between these two points when the frame is on and live.

2. What behavior does the reading undergo when you pull the trigger to fire? Does it bump up, dip down, or stay the same?

After this measurement, I need a few more for controls.

Red lead on brown switch wire (bottom) and black lead on black switch wire (top).

Red lead on brown switch wire (bottom) and black lead on middle unused pin.

Those are the measurements I am trying to collect.
