How to connect ADALM pin to breadboard

I just received a new ADALM2000 and am very new to EE, ADALM, breadboards.

How do I push the pins into the breadboard, as the metal pin is within the plastic.

Do I cut the plastic tip off the end of the pin ?

    Just for clarity on what we are talking about. The kit should have contained two what are referred to has fly wire headers, one that has two rows of 5 wires (for the analog connections) and one that has 2 rows of 10 wires (for the digital). They are keyed to only fit one way in to the 2 X 15 male header in the ADALM2000.

    Each individual fly wire is terminated in a female header socket. The kit also should have contained a number of double length male-male pins, in rows of six pins I think. If not then the ADALP2000 Analog Parts Kit certainly contains some male-male pins. These male pins are inserted into the female sockets changing them into male pins that can then be inserted into the holes in a solder-less breadboard. The  rows or strips of male pins are held together with strips of black plastic that can be easily snapped apart in to single pins or groups of however many you wish.

    I would like to have been able to include pictures here of how the pins work in the fly wire but my access to EZ is broken ant it will not allow me to insert graphics. This unboxing video on YouTube for the ADALM2000 should show the male pins and how to use them:

  • Hi Doug,

    Thanks for your reply.
    I connected V+ and 1+ to row 1
    I connected a 1 kohm resister from row 1 to row 10
    I connected ground and 1- to row 10.

    The ADALM is connected along with Scopy.
    The voltmeter shows no voltage drop.

    An external voltmeter shows no voltage from V+ to ground.

    Any suggestions ?

    V+ is a programmable power supply pin. You need to start the instrument from Scopy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kohIqwrlmjI
