AYAB Shield Kit

for computer Brother knitting machine Model KH900
CK 35 only if you want to bypass the original power supply & only for pattern control

This is an alternative patterncontrol with which you can send patterns to your knitting machine without designaknit or a ppd.
Software is free. Hardware works in combination with an Arduino Uno.

More Info: www.ayab-knitting.com

Design your knitwear pattern in any graphic programm of your choice as a png not wider than 200pixels/needles in black and white for fairisle, tuckstitch, slipstick, weaving etc
If you want to knit with 6 colours you can use black and white with 4 shades of grey in your design.
Works on single and double bed.

Included in the kit are also the connectors:

KH 900 + CK35 Molex 2mm Pitch Wire-to-Board Connectors

ALSO included ist power connection socket for soldering onto shield (I recommend filing off a little of the metal connectors to fit into shield hole)

After soldering and putting the shield onto the arduino you unplug the old hardware and plug in the new hardware.
Changing back to your old hardware is no problem.

Average review
As I'm not very experienced with electronics, I'm still having some technical difficulties but the seller has been brilliant at helping me along via email and I have hope that, when all is running smoothly, it will absolutely be worth it!

Great product and service! Note that the original AYAB soldering instructions do not cover the KH 900 shield at this time. You can follow most instructions but two pins are positioned different. Please ask shop owner for a picture of the assembled shield. She's very helpful!
