Title: **Closed** Power Distro RevB group buy **Closed**
Post by: harrison0550 on June 30, 2016, 06:13:30 PM

***Closed as of July 29th. Please be on the lookout for payment details.***
Co-op is now open CLOSED for the new RevB power distro boards!

Please read all info and ask any questions before ordering.

Anticipated co-op closing date is July 22nd 29th after which revised totals will be calculated, Payment should be completed by July 25th Aug 2nd .  Component ordering/receipt will take less than 1 week, circuit board etching and assembly lead time is expected to be 3 weeks total. Receipt of finished boards, packing and shipping could take approximately 2 additional weeks, which will put us into early Sept for you to begin receiving the finished boards. I will work to speed the process where possible, and timely payments are always appreciated. If we hit the minimum order (500) by the close of the co-op and everyone makes timely payments I believe we can speed the delivery time up significantly.

Important updated payment details:
I will not be using paypals invoicing service for this group buy. Some of you may remember the nightmare that was paypal in the first group buy and the countless hours I spent going back and forth with paypal. Not to mention the fees they charge you and me. So Darrell at crockettfantasyoflights has been gracious enough to allow me to use his site for payment processing. This is a huge help as now I won’t have to create an invoice for each order. Once we hit the minimum commitment of 500 boards I will open up a link for everyone to place their order. You will just have to click add to cart. No one will be able to pay for their order until we hit that magic 500 #. I will track all orders in the second post below so we all know how close we are to that 500 mark.

Shipping prices have been updated from first group buy as well.
Shipping / handling is expected to be………….
 $6.80 small flat rate. Up to 8 boards.
$13.45 Medium Flat rate. 9-40 boards
International shipping……
Yes we will do international shipping now. However the prices are not great  :o :(
$24.95 Small box up to 8 boards
$45.95 Medium box 9-40 boards
$59.95 large box 40-80 boards

I picture international shipping only being useful or cost effective if multiple people go in on an order together, however you will need to coordinate that yourselves and just place one order with one shipping address.

 This will include a USPS flat rate shipping box and other consumable materials to prep for shipping. If a large quantity 80+ of boards are ordered for one user there may be additional shipping fees. Shipping will now be invoiced separately once the boards come in, I believe this might have been what got me flagged by paypal on the first co-op as I charged shipping and purchase price up front and they did not like that I charged shipping but did not ship for more than 30 days. Please keep that in mind as this is a change from the first group buy.

============================================================
Prices listed below are best estimates at the quantity goal listed and should be "NTE" - not to exceed.

The price listed below does not include shipping/handling, paypal fees, etc.  I've tried to make best estimates for a reasonable goal on 'quantity' and price accordingly.  If we reach higher quantity levels, I will try to revise prices down to reflect additional quantity discounts.  If we fail to reach quantity levels, I will explore other options to keep the co-op on track / on budget, though a substantially lower quantity may mean canceling this particular item completely.

Please do not ask for special shipping, handling, paypal transaction consideration, etc. While I wouldn't mind to do this for a few, if I do it for one, I should do it for all.  If I do it for all, then it gets to be a very complex matter of tracking all special requests, packages, shipping, orders, etc.  For this to be efficient in bulk, we need to follow a set / defined process.  I appreciate your consideration!


More info and pricing on the power distro board:

==============================================
Pricing is based on a minimum board run of 500 units.......

 Fully Assembled: Assembled boards will be $12.00 per board.

Please comment below on how many you would like to order

Boards will come fully assembled with fuses.

There will be no kit option in this group buy as the leds and resistors are tiny. They can be soldered by hand but reality is I received such a great deal on this runs assembly it’s not even worth it to run a kit. It would cost just as much if not more to have all the parts sorted and packed in a baggy than it would just to have them assemble it for us.
Thank You Everyone!

Can I just order at Crockett?
Title: **Open** Power Distro RevB group buy **Open**
Post by: harrison0550 on June 30, 2016, 09:10:49 PM
No. These will not be on a vendor website for order. They will remain a group buy only on the falcon forums to keep costs down. Crockett is not stocking them. He was just kind enough to let me use his cart system for payments rather than deal with PayPal invoices and emails/PMs etc. They will only show on his site for a very short time for me to complete payments of this buy only then disappear. I will likely return to PayPal eventually for invoice payments but not until Jan or Feb for next years buy. Payment processing will be a short period and everything will be tracked here. Hope that makes sense.

Thanks everyone! I won't be updating the table until after the weekend. Keep the orders coming. It looks like we are over 200 boards now. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that the table won't update with totals until at least tues. Promised the wife I wouldn't turn on the PC this weekend. Lol. Little does she know I can still post from my phone. Thank you tapatalk.


Happy 4th everyone!!! Hope you all have a great weekend!

This will answer the measurements question, unless it changed slightly once the other items were added.

Nope still about 135 short of the 500 mark. I will pay for the rest if we can get a little closer. I will extend the closing date for a few more days. I will need to update the first and 2nd post this evening. Hopefully we can get a little closer.

Post by: darrell575 on July 30, 2016, 07:37:44 AM
The reason being is since PayPal has rules against Pre-Sale purchases we think that is what flagged them when the first sale happened and all were charged shipping and many days went by and there was not a single order shipped they started investigating.

All shipping will be charged at the time the items are ready to go out.

Thanks for your support and participating in the group buy.

Just a question, do these group buys normally include tax, and how is that paid to the states?


If its the normal thing. I just don't remember from other group buys taxes being collected. Was almost 20.00 on my order.

It looks like it's only charging tax to Texas residents. Let me see what I can do. Everyone else should be good.

Internet sales tax charges tax of you are buying from the same state the company is registered in hence why Texas residents get charged tax.

Once half of those have paid I will go ahead and place the order for the boards. Hoping we can get these ordered and start getting made as soon as tomorrow. Thanks again everyone.

Most states, especially Illinois, have a line on the year end tax sheet, "unpaid sales tax".  I know of no one that fills this in. 
There are movements in several state legislatures to find a way to get sales tax for anything sold to a member of the state instead of just to those in the same state of the seller.
 :(  Haven't seen anything on it, yet. It is probably out there, I just haven't seen it.

Post by: harrison0550 on August 08, 2016, 09:37:20 PM
In the first post the schedule was to start shipping in early Sept. The boards take approximately 5 weeks to get made and ship to me. With me having to leave it open an extra week so we are looking at shipping out to everyone mid Sept. Once they start rolling the boards off the line they send me pics so I will post once the boards have been ran.

Haven't posted anything in a couple of weeks, been swamped with the kids going back to school, work, blah blah you know. So I wanted to give a quick update. Boards have been ran and the manufacturer has all the parts in with the exception of the fuse holders. We learned this in the first group buy that it adds a week production time waiting on the fuse holders but that was expected and accounted for on the production time I posted in the first thread. It was funny because when they emailed with an estimated completion time of 3-4 weeks. I just laughed to myself and thought "just wait until you order the fuse holders then you will be emailing me back saying sorry for the delay". Bahahahaha. Yup got that email just as expected. But everything is still 100% on track for early to mid Sept for everyone to get their boards. I will post up the pics they send me after assembly. Until then, no news is good news. Have a great week everyone.

*Update*
The manufacturer has all the parts in. Everything looks great in the pics. Gave them the go ahead on assembly. It shouldn't take but a couple of days for assembly to be complete. Hoping they ship them this week or early next week. Won't be long now!!!

Also for anyone attending the TN mini this weekend who ordered boards and would like to get them at the mini please email michelle@crockettfantasyoflights.com and she will not invoice you for shipping and set your boards aside for me to deliver at the mini. Thank you!! 

FYI. I did order extras again but like before I will wait until all group buy orders have been delivered in one piece before I sell off the remaining inventory.

**Update** all shipping invoices were sent out yesterday. If you bought a board and didn't receive an email please check your junk mail folder.

Thanks to those that paid already. I got an update this morning from Michelle and if you paid before 12:30am eastern time you are boxed and ready to ship out today. At 4am I checked and 3 more of you paid after 12:30, so those will go out today also.

Usually if the order is placed before noon it will go out the same day. Special thanks to Michelle for the shipping and receiving efforts she is putting in.

Quick question before I break something.  Are the power sockets intended to be removable?

Fuses blow like a charm when something is wrong!  Tested excellent during an unplanned test scenario!

Awesome! Glad the fuses did their job. The power sockets are soldered directly to the board. Did you snap one off?

No, I didn't break it off, I was just trying make life easier and noticed the clip on the side that game me the impression they might come off.  Thought I'd ask

Andy,
What enclosure is that?  It looks like a CG-something but its not one that I recognize.

I really like the slotted entry instead of the "push through".  Nice box.

Yes I like that too.  It also appears to be slightly deeper than typical CG1500.

ANDY HARRISON, please tell us!  What is that box?

They are proprietary to cable tv companies. The only way I know to get them is from a cable tv technician. The company that makes them is PPC but they don't sell them to the public. Sorry.

Yea I didn't think that would be the answer you wanted. The good news is most cable techs will give you one if you just ask. Clyde Lindsey got one from a tech the other day.

Sorry I missed this question. It's just one of those cheap little voltage meters. I ordered a bunch of them off aliexpress earlier this year. It's mounted to the top of an older brand pixel controller. That's probably why it looks more complex than what it really is.

Hello;

Quick question/comment.  I have been setting up my power distribution  boards and they are working great.  One thing I discovered is that my boards have 2 different colors of green led from one board to the next.  One shade is brighter, I assume they are similar, but I thought I would say something in case you were not aware.

That's strange. All the ones I kept for myself are identical. Are you using different voltages? If you use 12v on one board and 5v on the other there will be a different brightness. Other than that though they should be the same. Only other thing I could think of is if the board house ordered some of the leds from a different manufacturer. I will hook a few more boards up and see if I can replicate it. Thanks for the heads up.

All my stuff is 12 volts, I will try to photo when up on the roof tomorrow.

I thought maybe it was my power supply but I have two boards on the same supply, so that wasn't it. 

I figured I'd ask.

as you can see the first one is so much brighter and slightly different green than the second.  The first is on the roof and farther away from the box by 50 to 100% further.   About 30ft give or take.

Title: Re: **Closed** Power Distro RevB group buy **Closed**
Post by: harrison0550 on November 06, 2016, 09:06:49 AM
Either. They work with both 12v and 5v. I used a resistor that will light the leds at both voltages and keep them within their operating range. 12v will just have a little brighter led than 5v but both voltages work perfectly.

I have used the same fuses with 12 volts without issue.  No difference for me with rev B.  Rev A is the same without lights for the fuses.  The 5 amp are the same as on my controller also.  So you should be ok.

I do. However it comes with a warning. You have to download the PDF and use adobe acrobat to open the PDF and select "Actual size" when you print it. If you use any other PDF viewer or internet explorer, or try to print from one drives preview etc. it will not print the correct size. I would recommend you check it with a distro board over it after you print one to make sure you printed it correctly.

Hi Andy,

What is the max rating for the input and outputs of the units? IE Can I use a 10amp fuse in one output if I leave another one unused?

Spend 30min looking for the answer, and I believe I did read it somewhere previously, but cannot find now.

Regards,
Rowan
Title: Re: **Closed** Power Distro RevB group buy **Closed**
Post by: harrison0550 on November 19, 2016, 06:52:37 PM
The input plug is rated at 30 amps. The output plugs are rated at 15 amps max each. So technically you could run 2 of the output plugs as 15 amps and leave the other outputs empty but I probably wouldn't use a power distro board for that though. I would use an inline fuse or something.
Title: Re: **Closed** Power Distro RevB group buy **Closed**
Post by: battle79 on November 20, 2016, 12:55:58 AM
Thanks for quick reply Andy,

I actually need 2x 10amp, 2x 5amp, and 1x controller board (just going to leave as 5amp) so this will be a good fit,  and probably still cheaper that inline fuses.

Regards,
Rowan

Sure helps tell that power is going to where you want it to.  I am using 3 at the moment and you can see the box below the matrix.  Saves on wire length too.

What is wrong with the Falcon Distro?  It ia available and inexpensive.  The thing I like about it better than the Harrison board is the pluggable connectors.  I gave both.
