Differential Receiver Board & 24V
« on: September 30, 2017, 06:28:47 AM »
I purchased a 4-String Differential Receiver Board to attach to my F16v3 to run some 24v floodlights.  Since the receiver board is only rated at 5v or 12v, it looks like I'll need to provide power using a distribution board.  Am I correct, or have people used the board directly with 24v?

Best guess is you should run the distro board for the lights, just use data from the receiver board. With that said, David Pitts is your best source of information on this one.

The small voltage regulator on the receiver board MIGHT tolerate 24v but I don't think it is spec'd that high.  You could source a similar regulator and replace it.

This seems possible from: http://falconchristmas.com/forum/index.php/topic,7812.msg78313.html#msg78313


I need to to this too, for a 24v pixel string. Hoping this can be done with ease.
