Why does ordering a PT24E result in receiving a "PT32E"?
« on: November 14, 2011, 03:38:21 PM »
I ordered and received a PT24E Proto Board, but the board says "PT32E" on it.  See the attached photo.  The PT24E schematic at http://www.modtronix.com/products/pt32e/pt24er1.pdf appears to be correct for my board.  Is this just a mistake on the board itself?  It seems like it should be documented on the product page at http://www.modtronix.com/product_info.php?products_id=230 but is not currently mentioned there.

(The photo shows my board after I added 5 parts to it for DIP switch read-back.  Those parts have nothing to do with this post.  Just notice the red circled label.)

Hi Rick. The PT32E PCB is used for the PT10E and PT24E boards. When assembled with two 5 pin terminal block connector (10 pin in total) it is called the PT10E. When assembled with two 12 pin terminal block connector (24 pin in total) it is called the PT24E.
