-Using your soldering iron, you sould now connect the thermistor to the contacts in the middle of the printbed. Also solder wires to pads on the side of the pcb. Make sure to use thick cables on the Power + and - contacts. The unmarked contacts on the following picture are optional for signal LEDs.\\+Using your soldering iron, you sould now connect the thermistor to the contacts in the middle of the printbed.
