Connecting the Sensor Pen

The Sensor Pen connects through a directional cable. Basically, you want the arrows to match to get the pen to connect correctly.

Now, the arrow on the cable needs to be up and pointing at the machine when the cable is inserted in to the port on The Machine.

Match the arrows and push the connector in. Notice the little pen picture which shows you Sensor Pen Here. Halfway done. Rather than just let the Sensor Pen hang out loosely, letting the cable get caught and the Pen go flying, The Machine ALSO has a Sensor Pen Holder that attaches directly to the machine.

That little plug pops out with something smallish inserted. The manual says to use a seam ripper or the end of the cleaner brush. I used a darning needle. It pops right out and the sensor pen holder pops right in.

And that’s it. Connect the pen to the machine. Mount the pen on the side for safe keeping.
