My New F16V3 Build
« on: April 04, 2018, 08:12:45 PM »

Hello all,
New to the forum and new to Pixel Displays. I started this build on Jan 1st and am giving myself until Holloween to get a show going.  I've learned so much from reading these forums and I can't wait to share my build and see what suggestions the pros have for me. Thank you for all the ideas and direction from many recent builds I've seen posted here. Glad to be part of this new group and I look forward to learning as much as I can.

Very clean looking.  Can you post some higher resolution photos, wanted to zoom in on a few to really peek at the components.  Nice work on the cables.  My only concern would be getting at some fuses under wires.  Working that out on mine now, planning on going out the edges of the board so no cables or very few go over the top of the fuses and then making the bend to hit the glads.

You are totally right. Getting replacement fuses in will not be easy. I looked at turning the boards sideways in the enclosure to try and make the fuses more accessible but couldn't make it work right in the space I had. Here is a higher res. pic hopefully you can see this one better.

Very very sexy build - You incorporated a lot of the design elements I wanted to include on my recent F16 build, and I'm very jealous :) I ordered the wrong size enclosure, and I was too impatient to wait any more so I stripped it down to a basic PSU/controller-only version and pushed my big baddy down for the next one.

Posted a pic here to help figure out what these two pieces of equipment are.

That top arrow looks like the inside of what is visible in his second and fourth pic looking at the side where power, network and audio connect.

The first arrow on the top is the IEC AC 120 power inlet switch and fuse. This is great because it eliminates the need for power strips inside the enclosure. Just make sure you know what ou are doing.  This type of voltage can kill you.

Second arrow on the bottom is a blue LED work light. Ive connected the light to a sensor that turns the light on only when the enclosure door is open.

SNG,
Question... The network, audio and power appear to be on the side of the enclosure. Are those connections/switch weatherproof? I see you're in Florida so snow is not an issue for you but it is for me. But what about rain? I looked at the network connections like you used but I was never able to see if they are weatherproof. If they are could you tell me where you got them from.

that looks great.  i am just starting out and have no idea what i am doing. how did you mount the power supplies to the lid?  What case did you do the build in?  where did you get the long pig tails? where did you get the two port network switch?

Can anyone post links for any of these parts?  I would like to build something like this but I dont know where to start or even what some of the parts are called.
