    Default Simple Renard 32

    We have just put another order in for the Simple Renard 32's also with DMX capability and they will be available soon, there are some SSR 8's available also and when they are gone we will place another order for them too. Just checking to see what kind of interest is out there. The DirkCheapSSR's are also a nice fit for the Simple Renard 32's....

    Thanks

    I will have about 25~30 Kits back on the site soon. I want to get the pre-orders out first then need to get some more PCBs once this run comes in for those who want the whole kit.

    I changed the spacing slightly on the RJ45's to accommodate the RJ45's with panel stops so they are not a tight fit so you should be able to use most types of RJ45 connectors. top load, side load, panel stops or without panel stops as you can see in the files attached.

    A Silk screen change on the PCB and moved the RX/TX LED from the TX out of the PIC to the RS485 circuit on the PCB. The DMX stream does not pass through the PIC with the DMX firmware. The older rev SR 32 ver.1 and ver.1b will still work fine with DMX but the RX/TX will not function since the ver.1 and ver.1b boards have the RX/TX LED on the output of the PIC. We will make that functional at a later date with a firmware change.
