    Will the 50 watt boards fit in the 20 watt enclosures listed above.

    Yes, they should fit just fine, however, there cooling could be a problem when used in hot weather

    Ok thank you. Shouldn't be a problem here in NYC. But ya never know. I'll give 1 or 2 a try first.

    Hello,

    I bought the following 20W enclosures that RobG recommended:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/152510752392?var=451868620128

    They fit RobG's 20W pixel boards just fine!

    I noticed the enclosures come with power supplies with this rating:

    INPUT: AC85-265V 50-60Hz
    OUTPUT: DC21-36V 600mA

    RobG's board is rated for a 24VDC power supply.

    Is it possible to power RobG's board from the enclosure's power supply? If so, should I combine the DC output ground from the enclosure's power supply with the DC ground on the RobG's board GND line and my pixel controller's GND line to avoid any data signalling issues?

    Thanks!
    Tom

    No, you cannot use them, they are constant current supplies.

    Hi Tom,

    How did the floods and those enclosures end up working out? I bought a 20 watt board from RobG to experiment with and was thinking of using this enclosure.

    Thanks!

    Ken,

    I have not built them yet. On my to-do list for this year.
    2012 - 1st year 64 Channels - 7500 LED lights - 5 sequences
    2013 - 128 Channels - 10,000 LED lights - 7 sequences (2 New)
    2014 - 201 Channels - upgrading 8 Arches to dumb RGB - 8+ sequences (1+ New)
    2015 - 240 Channels + 8 Universes - sequences TBD
    2016 - No Display
    2017 - Back in the Game - 240 Renard Channels + 12 Universes

    Ken,

    The enclosures that I bought from eBay work fine. One of the capacitors pushes into the metal foil reflector a little, causing a slight dimple. But it does not affect performance at all.

    I assembled my boards when RobG offered kits. You probably have preassembled boards, so perhaps the capacitors are soldered closer to the circuit boards than what I did. Either way, you will be happy with the enclosures.

    Be sure to apply heat sink compound for the replacement LED where is touches the enclosure. Scrape off the original sealer around the frame, then use fresh silicon gasket sealer to apply a new seal around the frame to make it waterproof again.

    Thanks,
    Tom
