Small modification to Falcon Hub needed for DMX output port 2
« on: September 06, 2014, 07:13:19 AM »
Small modification to Falcon Hub needed for DMX output port 2. I found this error in the PCB during testing.
This error effects DMX output 2. If outputting Renard this error will not be a problem.


Modification steps.

1) Cut the trace from RN1 (resistor network) pin 5 (counting from bottom) to pin 4 of U9 (485 chip).
2) On back of PCB solder small wire to connect pin 6 (counting from bottom) of RN1 to pin 4 of U9.

All boards purchased from store will have modification done before shipping.

Modification made.  I have not had the chance to test this one yet.

I have tested and Port #2 is working well.  That said, I made the modification before ever checking that it didn't work.
