    pot value Miller pedal

    Hi to the Miller users (I´m a happy one now too),

    I just purchased a second hand (but just few hours used) Dynasty 350 with cart and cooler for a totally great price (maybe due to the fact that here in germany the Miller machines are not as known as in the states).

    I would like to add a pedal (from another brand) I still have in stock, because I like the design/ergonomics of it.
    I allready found the wiring diagramm for the 14pin miller pedal.

    Just two questions:
    There are two capacitors in the wiring. I think these are here to supress interference, right.
    Is it possible to build the pedal without (I would use a cable with shielding)?

    How about the pot value? Would 5 or 10k work?

    Thank you!
    Regards

    Kai

    1000 ohms is what the pot should be. I would pot the caps on and. Not skip them.

    My guess is a 0.1 microfarad ceramic disk. Maybe someone is willing to look inside their pedal for you. Either that or call miller or call SSC controls for advice.

    Neither the pot nor the caps are going to be fussy on values, going up in pot value may increase interference by a little, increasing cap values may slow the response (but you'd probably still only see the change on a scope, you'd never feel it)

    I'd say wire it in and if you notice a problem, then futz with it.
