View Full Version : REN64XC to DC SSR to 12V Dumb RGB Strip

The wiki has a chart that says R9 - R13 needs to be changed from 680 to 2000 ohm for 12V operation. Does this apply when controlled by a REN64XC which supplies 5V to the SSR. R9 - R12 is in the MOSFET circuit but R13 needs to be changed also? What else needs to changed in order for proper control of the RGB strip.

No changes should be required - the Ren64 can drive DCSSRs directly as-is. The note you mention is for using something like the Ren48LSD when using a 12v supply on the board itself. This is separate from the DC supplied on the DCSSR itself for the 4-channel outputs.

Thanks. Makes more sense to me now.
