So Far....

Hey all!

Okay I have all the wires working.

I left the long wires in the white and purple bag on the bottom self and the short wires in the wihte, red, and green bag on the second to bottom self.

The 2 20 ft. connectors are also on the bottom self.

I can't come tomorrow until I'm done with my final so I'll be there in the afternoon.

flying V wiring diagram


As you all know, the Megabrites are very important links in the chain. They must be wired corrrectly to your custom made ribbon wires. You must pay attention to the IN set of pins and the OUT set of pins, which must match.

Power Supply spec'ed

Since a standard PC power supply does not provided the recommended voltage (7.5V) for our MegaBrite modules, I asked Andy Grahm to order this power supply:

We had considered using a hack to get get 7 volts from a PC power supply but I have not been able to confirm the amount of current with this technique. The above supply can source 20 amps.

I also ordered some additional MTA100 connectors so we can run 50 MegaBrites.
