    Default Can I draw 40A per side of an E682 or F16v3?

    Anybody know what the current rating of the input terminal blocks and traces are on the E682 and F16v3 (respectively)?

    It's fused at 5A per output, so theoretically these boards can supply 40A per side without a fuse blowing.

    Can the input sides of the board handle it though?

    Per Sandevices:
    Power: There are two connections for pixel power, allowing the use of two separate pixel power supplies. This also allows a mix of 5 volt and 12 volt pixels (for example) to be controlled by a single E682. Each power inlet supplies power to 8 pixel outputs and is rated to carry up to 32 amps. The E682 itself is typically powered from the right-hand (output groups 3 and 4) pixel power supply, but may also be powered independently by a power supply that is capable of providing 7-24 volts DC at about 500ma, connected to J19.

    "Each power inlet supplies power to 8 pixel outputs and is rated to carry up to 32 amps". There are 2 power inlet's, one each side of the board, so if I assume 32 amps for each side that's 64 amps total for the 682.
