Q&A forumsimpleRTK2Blite status LED pins
gnssuser asked 9 months ago

Hi again,
I want to enclose the simpleRTK2Blite into a box, and transfer the 3 Status LEDs to the front panel in order to have information about the receiver status.
There are any pins to the board of simpleRTK2Blite that are connected with the LEDs?
Thank youi advance.

Hi gnssuser,
Unfortunately status leds are not available on the lite version of simpleRTK2B. We take note of this requirement and we might include them in future versions.

i want the same with the simpleRTK2B version. Did the simpleRTK2B have pins for the status leds?

Hi, yes i see the onboard leds.
But in a box the status leds can’t be viewed. I want to made external leds in the case cover and connect them to a pin is possible.

It’s a very good feedback, we are working on a small redesign of lite product next year, we will try to add this improvement. For now, you will have to wire manually the leds, you can consider using a “smd led light pipe”.

i have not the lite version. Did the normal version still have no pins to connect external led’s?
Is there documentation how to use the “smd led light pipe”?

Hi marco,

The normal version also has no pins to connect external pipe leds.
No, there is no documentation because it has not been designed for such use, it was just a proposal/idea.
