  1. Yeah...we can probably update that contribution to a newer set of boards Greg......that one's a little dated now.... I'll throw an extra set in the box I'm sending down Brad. I should have it together and on its way by the end of the week.
  2. Looking at the pics again, that resistor behind the fuse on the board looks to be burned up, so does the one across from it (R13 and R30). Might want to look at replacing them and possibly Q1 (the transistor between them).
  3. You definitely need a 1A fuse, the maximum I would push it is 1.5A If it pops a 1A fuse I would say there is an issue further along in the circuit (look for split, burnt or swelled capacitors).
  4. Go ahead and hook up the knocker boogies, it should be fine. If there are any problems, let me know.
  5. Gotcha, 4 leds to a set. The booster only uses the 5v and 12v to power the board circuitry, no bank power necessary. Just an FYI on the voltage banks on the ledwiz itself, they only provide a path for the clamping diodes in the event of feedback from a coil to protect the driver chips on the board. There's no real gain by connecting those banks if all that is connected is leds as the leds are diodes and provide the same protection themselves. It doesn't hurt anything to connect them, but there's no real reason to.
  6. 4xRGB Leds are 12 ports. That only leaves 4 ports. Yes you can still use the remaining outputs on the ledwiz. I'd make sure to supply the 5v rail on the ledwiz though, just to avoid pulling too many amps through the usb port.
  7. You can safely run 3A per channel boogies, and I have unofficially run one to 6a with no heating of the Mosfet or magic smoke on the traces (chickened out beyond that), but officially, 3a. In 5w cree terms that's 3 crees inputs per output.
  8. 'So if a plane left Seattle carrying 500 lbs of melons, and a train left Toronto (Canwegia) carrying 500lbs of beaver pelts and each was travelling 120mph, >>>>>how soon would the martians take over the earth?
  9. The driver board has 595 based multiplexer's built onto it. It's designed to expand the number of outputs from the arduino using serial output. The ledwiz has no way to address the bits in the multiplexer's, therefore it wouldn't pass the signals properly.
  10. Put me down for one of the LedWiz Booster boards and pm me the shipping details. That should take care of the relays and such.
  11. Congrats to you and your team on solving the stuttering issue Pixel, looks amazing and runs very smoothly!!!! Awesome work.
