If you are powering your Beaglebone from a separate 5vdc power supply (wall wart type) and not from the same supply as your panels, be aware that you probably will have trouble booting the BBB unless you provide power to your panels FIRST.

If the panels are not getting power first from somewhere, they will "borrow" some power from your BBB, usually enough that the BBB can't boot properly.

If you are powering the BBB from the same supply, you should be fine.

ps, this probably applies to the RasPi P10 users also.
