*E-NAIL WIRING CONFIGURATION INFO.*
WHICH HEAT COIL FITS MY E-NAIL CONTROLLER?
E-nails and heater coils are all essentially made with the the same components; but sometimes the wires are re-arranged differently on the heater coil plug connector. For this reason sometimes a new e-nail heat coil will cause problems with an e-nail controller and cause malfunctions to occur. To find which heating coil will work with your e-nail controller, all that you need to know is the 5-PIN configuration on the controller’s plug and on the plug of the heating coil. If they are the same configuration they will work as long as it’s meant to run 120V AC power to the heating element (which 99% are). An example of a heating coil configuration that is most standard is: PIN 1=AC, PIN 2=AC, PIN 3=TC+, PIN 4=TC-, PIN 5=Ground
To find this simply search the product page where you purchased your e-nail or contact the seller and ask “Can you please tell me what is the 1-5 PIN configuration of the XLR plug?” They should be happy to tell you in order to keep your product functioning well and also for safety’s sake to avoid possible dangerous mis-configurations. After you find this out simply copy/paste it over along with the configuration for your heat coil (if not from here) and your custom e-nail extension will be completed in less than a week!

Are you experienced in working with electronics? Have a soldering iron? At your own risk you may be able to hack your own coil together. Check out the RCCtools reply at the bottom of this handy little post at Reddit
