F48 Pixel Controller / Re: New Enclosures! What do ya think?

The gland has a screw on cap for when it is not being used for protection.  Doesnt look extremely protected when plugged in however.  It will keep moisture from leaking into the box.

Falcon PiCap / Re: Will this work
« Last post by pixelpuppy on January 21, 2019, 03:57:16 PM »
There are several ways to do it, just depends on personal preference.   I prefer to do all my zig-zags in the controller.  In xLights just model it as a 16x50 tree with no zigzags since you only do it one place or the other and not both.  He said he was using a PiCap, so this is how I would do it in the PiCap.  This is based on a start channel of 1 - which may need to be adjusted for his particular start channel (change the start channel 1 to the correct start channel and hit F2 twice)

Why arenít you powering your Pi through the PiCap?  Might have issues if youíre trying two supply power to the Pi and Cap separately, if itís not configured properly

Ok Dave. I can update the version later. Already did the boo loader and firmware update. Thought that would update it completely. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

If youíre not getting power out of the ports, then the LEDs arenít going to get power.

Youíll need to track down that problem.  Fuse?

I am powering both.
I have the pi powered with its adapter.
I have the picap powered with a 12v external power supply.  I checked and its getting 12v into the picap.


I have all the jumpers attached for the picap so that should be for 12v.

How are you powering everything?  Through the Pi? Or through the PiCap?

V and G should always be ďactiveĒ

Sounds like power isnít reaching the port.

I believe there are 12v and 5v jumpers on some versions of the picaps. Check that
