    Turns out the thermal issue was related to one of the fets being shorted. The supply still regulated with only 1 fet and a heavy load, which is kinda cool. I am going to replace that fet and resume testing. Work has been kicking my ass so I haven't had much time.

    Network Engineering is my day job...I'm highly interested in your project. I think you're on to something here and I'm a big fan of not having a bunch of gear in my yard where an ether run would do...sub'g!

    I agree. 120V extensions are a pain and in the snow they get wet and add in some neighbor kids and you have the potential for something bad. I am re-rolling the board with TO-220 devices. I will expedite the boards so I can get some prototypes assembled. I really want to get at least 144W out of these.. While I am at it I will make some improvements too adding power and data LEDs

    Very Interested. Watching.
    I don't have a problem with cat5, but I do have a problem with 12 to 16 cables coming out of a controller box just for a mega tree. I have
    started over the last few years power injecting 12v pixels and only Data and V- from the board. A whole lot less wire!

    This is not Ethernet

    I was pointing out that calling this "Ethernet" and/or "PoE" (Power over Ethernet) is incorrect. This is neither Ethernet nor PoE which are both well-defined industry standards, completely different than (and incompatible with) the proprietary product described in this thread (PPOC5)

    Not my first typo, probably not my last...

    LOL I knew what you meant, hence the chuckle... Our industry widely accepts the interchangeability of several of our standards’ nomenclature. It’s almost “slang”, in my humble opinion, just as long as you’re typing “config t” more than white papers...

    I’m looking forward to reading the topic’s progression...however it’s referred to...
