Now to assemble everything! Follow these directions:

Frog Sensor

Plug cables into the SDC-30 sensor

First, we need to attach two cables (100mm and 50mm) to the SDC-30.

SCD30 Connect

As shown in the picture, the 100mm cable is plugged into the top port and the 50mm cable is plugged into the bottom port.

Install the SDC-30 sensor on the enclosure base

Now the SDC-30 is ready to be mounted on the enclosure base. You will need the SDC-30 with attached cables, the four long brass standoffs, enclosure base, and the 5mm socket. You can also use the custom Ribbit 5mm driver.

First, route the 100mm cable through the hole in the top of the enclosure.

Next, use the four long brass standoffs to mount the SDC-30 to the top of the enclosure. The 5mm socket should be used to screw in the brass standoffs. Do not over tighten, just snug up.

Install the Barometer

To mount the barometer you will need two M2.5 screws and a small phillips screwdriver.

The Barometer sits on the two long brass standoffs above the cable ports on the SDC-30. Use the screws to secure it in place.

Plug the 50mm cable from the SDC-30 into the front of the barometer.

Install the GPS

To mount the GPS you will need two M2.5 screws and a small phillips screwdriver.

The GPS sits on top of the two remaining long brass standoffs, opposite the barometer. Use the two screws to secure the GPS in place.

Now use the second 50mm cable to connect the barometer and GPS

GPS Connect

Install the ESP32 Feather

First, connect the 100mm cable to the port in the center of the ESP32. Then connect the USBC 90 degree adapter to the power port.

Note: you may need to remove the cap from the port in the center of the ESP32.

Place the Microcontroller and Connector inside the enclosure

There are 2 alignment pins on the left-hand-side that will help place the Microcontroller in place. Click it in.

ESP32 Connects

Now the ESP32 can be mounted in the enclosure base using the remaining two M2.5 screws and the small phillips screwdriver.

Select 2 of the screws (the smaller of the two sizes) out of the bag of hardware. Lightly fasten the first screw on the right side of the Microcontroller (near the USB port). Make sure both screws are tight, but not too tight as that can destroy the plastic.

Note that there are only two screws holding the Microcontroller in place. The other side of the microcontroller is just held via the alignment pins.

Assemble the Enclosure

Now we can move on to assembling the enclosure. The lid will come first.
Simply snap the lid into place on top of the base.

Snap on the Shroud

The lower shroud snaps into place.

To snap in place, slide one side of the shroud into place on the clip. Then press firmly on the other side to snap it down as well.

Install the Frog Head

The frog head snaps on top of the shroud.

Head Install

Use firm, but not excessive, pressure to snap the Frog Head into place. This snap functions just like the shroud in the previous step.

Head Click

Assembly Complete

The assembly is complete! Now it is time to test if the Frog is working correctly.

Note, if you are assembling this Frog as part of a workshop, the testing steps are optional, but encouraged!
