    Default SainSmart 8ch SSR board repair, need help.

    I have tested my setup tonight after setting it up and blew out my on my channels. I am running the 2a 8ch SSR boards from sainsmart powered by an arduino mega. In return this setup is powering C9 strings, one string per channel. I over looked one thing, the fuses in the strings are 5a, and the boards are rated at 2a, the strings only pull 1.47a, but I shorted out a bulb tonight. I am working on a way to fuse all my outputs (32ch) but for now, I need to repair the board. Here is an image of what popped, I am assuming that its a fused resistor of some sort but not sure.

    What is it so I can order and replace it. I have voltage to one side of it so I know the SSR is still operational.

    Thanks, and move the post if its in the wrong place.....

    Trick is to solder them in but not overheat them so they blow again with heat.

    Thanks, I kept digging after posting last night. I found lower fuses to put in the individual strings and the barrel fuses on the board look like they are stamped 4A. For now I am going to use one of my extra channels and repair the board later. Thanks for the link.
