Hooking up the electronics to your AON is simple. First, note the three outlets on the electronics enclosure unit as shown below: 

Two of the included harnesses are identical and is plugged into positions 1 and 2, and the harness with the "dangling" connector plugs into position 3. The end of the harness where the "dangling" connector begins connects to the enclosure as per the below photo:

You will also see the hole for a USB connection. Take the included USB cable and connect the Raspberry Pi to the enclosure, and power up the Raspberry Pi by plugging in the 5V power supply adapter cord. There is no power button on the Raspberry Pi, it will power on as soon as it is plugged in and vice versa. 

Now make note of the three inlets on the rear panel of the AON unit as shown below:

Connect the harnesses to the rear connectors, matching the numbering shown in the photos. Note that the connectors only fit in one orientation, and must be locked down by twisting the connector housing ring. Powering on with improper connections can result in the failure of several internal components, so please double check that the three connectors are in the right place. 

And that's it! The power switch is located on the side of the electronics enclosure unit near the power cord. 

IMPORTANT: At minimum, you must use a dedicated 20A 110V (or 220V equivalent) circuit to power the AON. 

Plug in the power cord, and turn the switch on. When you see the internal LEDs illuminate, you're ready to move on to the next step - Water-Cooling Circuit.

We recommend you place the enclosure on top of the printer lying flat on the side of the rubber feet.
