Find Same PCB or Get Help w/ Mine

I watched the video from pic rel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvPP4wZlBUI&ab_channel=MyersMushroomsFarms). I bought everything in the kit link, but my flow meter controller thingy had a different circuit board despite being the same exact model, so I need to do one of two things:
>find the exact same circuit board so I just monkey-see-monkey-do copy the soldering and placement
>learn how my board works and just do the equivalent stuff to mine

In pic rel you can see 'BW-TX004' and '131302', but searching these lead me nowhere.

    it's like when someone with downs syndrome says they want to be an astronaut without having any actual comprehension of what that means.

      Yes, I don't know what I'm doing, but I can learn, as I said. Alternatively, I was hoping to find the same exact board so I can just copy what he did exactly and not risk ruining my board somehow.

        Hey OP I found the PCB. Next time ask /ohm/:

          That's the same item I bought, how do you know the PCB is the same? There are no pictures or descriptions of the PCB in that ad AFAICT. besides, at this point it'd take too long to get here if from chyna

    can you post a picture of the circuit board you did receive?
    I'm assuming the flow meter just reads some sensors, connects to a pump (I've not watched the video yet), so you should mostly just need to figure out the connections

      Sorry I just didn’t get any response tonight, unusual for him. He was supposed to drop it off this morning too

        What's con4, sensor? Valve? Why can't you use that board.
        Looks like that board is 7 years newer. Are you sure it doesn't perform the same function with less of a chance of starting a Chinese fire ""drill""?

          It performs the same function, but idk what con4, sensor or valve are. Would love some help wiring it up though.

            Can I get any help finding the schematics or determining where I need to solder?

              Hook some probes up to it and figure it out. Jesus fuck. It's not like you're doing a car ECU you something. There's 5 fucking wires.

                What am I supposed to do exactly? I’ve got the board and my multi on the table. But I think I need to solder in a power supply first or something.

                i think i got it figured out now basically, just hope running a 12v solenoid at 24v won't be too bad

                Probably fine in the short term but get the right solenoid or add a buck converter or something to drop it to 12V

                i decided to just use a different 12v water meter i have laying around until i get a 24v solenoid. on the other meter, i can't really solder into the 'run' button to make the a switch that gets pressed whenever i use the foot pedal, so it means to start i'll need to use the foot pedal to operate the knife valves AND push a button to dispense water.

                not the end of the world, but after my 24v solenoid gets here i should be able get exactly what i want.
