the back side of the Control panel. First I wanted to make a mount and I wanted to use a Flat Panel TV mount. I found a nice adjustable arm that was rated for 33 pounds so I tap'd the back for machine screws and attached the arm to the cart. The back of the panel has the Main power in (Switched) and the two march pumps out (fused). at the bottom I installed and XLR out to plug the Gas Valves into. The three wires in the XLR are as follows. the center pin is the 24v common. The left pin is the TH connection on the gas valve for the BK and the right pin is the TH connection for the HLT gas Valve.. The other three connectors are for the RTD's BK, MASH and HLT

Here's the flat panel mount I got. I made it easily removable by making attach with plastic thumb screws and having all the connections removable.

I staggered the plugs so that the cables would run together and Look good. I used the 90` angled power cords so they would turn immed to the right and run along the arm into the frame of the brew stand. Those thumb screws I got here..http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-imag...-image13701194
