How to Solder Normals

Hello Bob,

I currently own an ADC 5 solder point per patch point tt patchbay and was wondering if it was necessary to combine (twist together) the tip and tip normal and the ring and ring normal on the normal solder points to create a full normal? The goal is to create a full normal not half normals which I seem to have now (or poor connections). I currently have it soldered tip to tip, ring to ring, tip normal to tip normal, ring normal to ring normal, all grounded, all soldered top to the corresponding lower terminal.

Thanks in advance,

Benjamin

hey Benjamin,

"I currently own an ADC 5 solder point per patch point tt patchbay and was wondering if it was necessary to combine (twist together) the tip and tip normal and the ring and ring normal on the normal solder points to create a full normal?"

No Sir.

“The goal is to create a full normal not half normals which I seem to have now (or poor connections). I currently have it soldered tip to tip, ring to ring, tip normal to tip normal, ring normal to ring normal, all grounded, all soldered top to the corresponding lower terminal.”

You have it correct. For a half-normal you would have the top-row tip going to bottom-row tip-normal. Then top-row ring going to bottom-row ring-normal. The half normal would leave the top-row's normals un-soldered.

Try this picture of an ADC PJ-739:



Sincerely,
Bobby Hickey
