Alternate black panel for the ER-301

Great to see more of these being made :slight_smile:

Don’t forget the ER-101/2 panels too folks, we’re not far off those being a reality too:

Yes i saw that but I dont have the combo… yet… i only have an 101. Would love a 101 black panel next to the 301… the combo panel is looking really good though

I’d be interested in a black panel.

I would like to buy a black panel as well!

can anyone comment on how difficult is it to put the black panel on? seems. like it might be a trickier panel swap than your average module.

It’s pretty straightforward. Detailed here http://wiki.orthogonaldevices.com/index.php/ER-301/Maintenance_and_Repair#Removing_the_panel

Some things to watch out for that I’ve noticed in removing the panel a number of times:

  • Be careful with the orange acrylic display lenses. They can be scratched easily by rubbing against components that are attached to the circuit board.
  • Work in a very dust free area, as the displays and lenses tend to attract dust, and it can get caught between the OLEDs and the acrylic when reassembling. Having a tape loop of blue painter’s tape can help grab any dust off the acrylic or displays without putting any tiny scratches in the acrylic lenses.

I think there are more ER-301’s then ER-101’s around…
You have to have the combo 01/02 to buy that black panel as well. I would love a black panel for my 101 but I dont have the combo (yet) and I dont know if I would buy it in the near future because I do fine without it. But… i know if I buy a 102 i cant do without it anymore and def. want a black panel then :grin:
