    Default P10 Hookups

    I am going to build a 5 panel W X 6 panel H P10 matrix. I am using Ron's Raspberry Pi Matrix adapter which can handle 12 panels per output (36). So I should be okay.
    How do I actually connect the three outputs of the adapter to the rows of the P10 panels? I understand that that panels in each row are interconnected with ribbon cables but beyond that I can't see it.

    Thanks

    Default P10 Hookups

    Here is a 3w x 4h matrix I built. I'm using Ron's board and I chained the 1st 6 panels to one output and the 2nd 6 to another. Everything mounts in base - I just have it hanging while I was working on it. Hope this helps.

    One other note, I use these 5 terminal boards from Amazon for power connections - basically I have 2 for positive and 2 for ground then these tie back to PS as well as the Pi power connector from Ron's board.

    I can't tell from the picture, but are they fused? Also, does the shorting bar come with it?

    Currently not fused but now that I have some power dist boards I am going to go back and integrate some fusing.

    Here is the Amazon link, it did come with the bars.

    Just to share some ideas.....I used 3-point terminal board and resettable fuses. Black lead is power from PS and reds go to 2-P10 panel. This is a 12 panel setup, with 3 fused distribution points.
