The eighth step is to install the drive board. You need to connect the negative electrode with the black wire and the positive electrode with the red wire. About the polarity on the drive boards: the positive electrode is marked with “60v”. The negative electrode bears a hole. Make sure to take enough tin on the soldering iron to fill the soldering hole.

Bad soldering may cause malfunction. Then cut off the protruded part to avoid touch on the board. Put in the conductive silicon on strips before installing the drive board. Test if there is any short circuit problem. Fasten the joint on the drive board. Wrap the thermal shrinkable shelve around the wire joint, make sure the wires are solidly connected as per matching colour.
