I am trying to mount a satellite dish, and when I get a wired the engine, I'm stuck, because I do not know or put cables in the proper places, let me explain:
In the engine, there are 4 places to secure the cable to 4 wire: two for power (motor), and two for direction (Sensor), words Sensor and motor are engraved in plate, so we know both (see photo).
But the problem is: where is the positive and negative supply for the engine, knowing that in the positioner DIGICLASS Vbox-II, it is already stated in the sheets (Motor+ | Motor- | Sensor- | Sensor+).

and thank you in advance

Motor connections are the red terminals. The motor will run in either direction depending on +/- connection.

When you set one of the motor's limits in your receiver (usually east), check that the dish is indeed moving east. You can't always rely on the motor connections to be correct. If moving west, swop the motor wires at the receiver.

It's nice to know that good old "suck it and see practices" still survive! :)

hello and thank you for your responses.

for the first response:

yes, the power wire is red, is already writing in the box, so no problem if I accidentally reversed the power wire?.

for the second response
When you set one of the motor's limits in your receiver (usually east), check that the dish is indeed moving east. You can't always rely on the motor connections to be correct. If moving west, swop the motor wires at the receiver.
I've heard that, not to be limited for the purposes of engine, it must fix the engine in East, I have a question:
how to fix the engine?

thank you in advance.

Depends on your positioner (don't know your V-box). It's usually the first step you must take when you initially set up your dish motor.
