F8-Distro power injection
« on: August 03, 2017, 08:02:24 AM »
I'm new to pixels this year and I ran into a little problem with one of my trees (see figure).  I'm connecting 2-80 node strings, going up then down, into my F8-Distro board.  I'd normally power inject where the green arrow is, but I don't think I can since each 80 node string draws 4A @ 12V).  If I inject once at the green arrow, I believe my Falcon 5A fuse would blow (8A) so I need to inject twice as the image shows.

Is my thinking correct?
