Egret 2 Monitor pin out and Degaus Q

Post by geldra »

Afternoon!

I’m starting the journey of transplanting a Nanao MS9 (29SU. I know not a T) back into my E2. Unfortunately the original amp up connector was butchered off courtesy of Flazh (remember him?!) back in the day so I need to sort that out.

I can see from the big Egret 2 wiring schematic that 9 wires go to the AMPUP connector but I can only see 7 being used by the chassis currently in there. The wiring diagram doesn’t help as it looks like the 2 Degaus wires connect to each other? Is that right?!

Any help/photos from anyone with an E2 would be most appreciated.

Edit: had another look at the wiring in the cab on that section and there looks like a pair of green/orange wires that look like they do loop back on themselves, guessing they’re the Degaus wires? Which may answer my question.

Yep, you're correct.
They are for the degauss, and because the T version is auto degauss, the green/orange just loopback on themselves via the pink cable in the pix below, rather than wiring to a press button.

Ah nice one thank you.

So assuming the 29SU chassis doesn’t auto Degaus like the 29T should I not connect those wires up? Or, can I connect it up, break the loop and maybe attach to a button or something to allow for degaussing?

Edit @wigsplitta could you do me a photo of the amp up into the monitor chassis please?
