How do I install the ferrites that come with RedEdge?

 

The ferrite beads included in your RedEdge kit are meant to reduce electromagnetic interference. You should follow the instructions below to ensure reduced EMI and FCC compliance.

  

Power Cable

Grab the wire of the 3 pin connector just behind the connector housing
While holding onto the wire and applying a slight force to the wires, use a small flat head screw driver or knife to lift the small fingers on the connector housing. Take care not to break these fingers!
After removing all 3 pins, wrap the cable around the ferrite toroid by inserting the cable through the toroid then wrapping it around the toroid and once more slipping the pins through the center.

NOTE: It is very important the toroid is located as close to the connector housing as possible.

Connect the pins back with the housing by firmly inserting the pins starting with pin 1 (red wire)

 

 

GPS/DLS Cable


Grab the wire of the 6 pin connector just behind the connector housing
