[time-nuts] FE-405 DOCXO info request

I have not looked at that side of the PCB yet, the plate it is on looks too thick to be just support, maybe a heat sink / heat spreader. It has the name Double Oven CXO and I can see the Crystal oven not sure how the second oven works but think that plate may not come off easy. To be honest I lost my nerve at that point, I was afraid the main spring would come flying out and I never recovered at that point on my previous attempts:-) Need to build the RS232/buffer as described in the reader manual too.

You will not know until you try the handle.

You would need to take a photo of the other side of the PCB. I tried to find it among your photos, but no luck. I would have been happy to traced up the full pinning on that connector for you.

What you want to know is the commands. You should be able to figure those out. The patent is clear enough on the overall scheme of things.
