Battery and LocoKit Board

The battery is attached to the LocoKit Powerboard as shown in the photo below.


The LocoKit system is powered on in a two step process.

The first step is to enable the battery. This is done by pressing the button next to the connector to the battery (it is also labeled "enable battery").This should cause a diode oppossite the connector to light up to indicate the battery has been enabled. If this is not the case the battery needs to be charged.

The second step is to slide the power switch away from the battery connector. The power switch is located on the same board as the battery connector, but on the short side nearest to the the battery connector (in the lower right corner of the photo above). This should cause a number of green diodes to turn on.

IMPORTANT: Do not disconnect or connect motors on the system while the power is on. Always power off the system before.

IMPORTANT: Do not try to couple two LocoKit boards together as it may damage the systems.
