    The DIGWDF engineers thought a little video of the prototype might be helpful to folks that are still curious whether this thing actually works... Here you go.

    I'm finally getting around to assembling these. I'm a little confused with step 14 though. Are we strapping across the back of the board, or are we just connecting the power through the holes on each side of the board? Do you have a picture or wiring diagram of just that area? Thanks.

    Solder the wires into the holes so they stick upward, and then you can slide the buck down over them and solder the buck to the wires.

    It may be easier for some to solder wires to the buck's terminals, bend them down so they fit through the PCB holes, solder at the PCB bottom and clip the excess off.

    Wish I would have bought more of these. If anyone bought some of these and isn't going to use them, I would be willing to buy. Thanks.

    Will these work with the SSROZ also?

    Electrically, yes. But I think the SSROZ's tall fuse might preclude everything from fitting inside a TA200 case....

    Great. I can remedy the fuse. Thanks.

    If you plan to put the adapter on top of the SSROZ, you should put a layer of insulation between the two so the two don't touch. A layer of cardboard or even coroplast should be all that's needed. The adapter was designed to be electrically inert on one end so that it actually rested on top of the SSREZ's TRIACs, but the same may not work for the different parts locations of the SSROZ.

    I still haven't gotten them to work correctly. When I power up, all channels come on full, and can't be controlled. I can go into the ESP interface fine, and flashed the PIC with the firmware off your website. Any idea where to start troubleshooting? I'm using Shelby's v3 for the ESP.

    If all channels come on full to start with, you're not using the right firmware. You need the AC version of the Renard firmware for the PIC16F1825 chip. It looks like you flashed the PIC with LSD firmware for DC use. That's a dog that won't hunt with this adapter connected to an AC SSR...

    Also, make sure you have the H11AA1 chip installed properly as the AC version of Renard firmware won't work without the ZC signal.

    I have 3 of these in my show this year and they work perfectly, using Shelby's 3.0rc3 firmware for serial Renard/DMX. Make sure the baud rate you set the ESP firmware matches the baud rate you used for the PIC firmware.
