Cooked my DC Controller. Help!


Recommended Posts

I have a show setup for the 30th.... so I need some quick help!


I have (3) of the older 16 channel DC boards. It had been awhile since I read the documentation and I had in mind the channel capacity was 8 amps. Turns out, that was only with a heat sink. Oddly it looks like LOR does not supply a heat sink. Gotta rig this thing up ASAP. I can replace the mosfets without issue, but I need to figure out how to get more current out of the boards. I only run 2 per side @ 8 amps so I am within the boards capacity, just not the channel w/o heatsinks. 


anyone know of a heatsink that matches the spacing of the mosfets? 


I see there is a 24 channel board now. What if I parallel the positive side of two of the channels and match the sequence on each one. Doing that, in theory I should be able to mix low and high current channels on the same board which would be ideal for me.

The heat sink for the AC controllers matches exactly the spacing of the DC controller, but you need to have them insulated from one another.

Heat sinks look like they're about $20 for a set of two.

Give LOR a call.
