Wetware assembly

Step 1: Necessary parts

You will need:

  • Vial holder
  • M3 square nuts
  • Heating PCB
  • Thermal pad(contains blue cover on one side and clear plastic on the other)
  • Flat flex cable
  • 4mm screws (2x)

Step 2: Assembling the vial holder

  1. Insert M3 square nuts into the 4 holes at the bottom of the vial holder.
  2. Push the nuts in as far as they go. The should align with the holes in the vial holder.

You can check the alignment of the square nuts by looking through the holes from the bottom of the vial holder.

Step 3: Placing the heating pad

  1. Remove the clear plastic from the thermal pad, revealing the sticky side.
  2. Place the sticky side on the flat part of the heating PCB. Apply some pressure around the edges to secure it.
  3. Remove the blue protective plastic on top of the thermal pad.
  4. Flip the PCB over. On the cable connector, pull the beige-colored tabs outward to open it.
  5. Insert the cable (blue side down, copper side up) into the cable connector, then push the tabs inward to secure the cable.

Step 4: Securing the heating PCB into the vial holder

  1. Identify the slot on the vial holder where the flex cable will go through.
  2. Insert the flex cable in the vial holder, and through the slot, with the blue side of the cable facing upwards.
  3. Pull the cable through until the heating PCB is flat with the bottom of the vial holder.
  4. Secure the PCB from the bottom using the two 4mm screws.
  5. Confirm the heating PCB is secure by gently shaking the vial holder - everything should feel secure.
