Hey.. I bought that same one^^ and it came disfunctional. I tried to fix it, but ended up breaking (shorting out) the driver...
Hey Josh, Where did you get that case / housing?that laser is already done and finished.
it has a 500mw green laser wave module that is self cooling and does not need to be mounted on a base plate at all. the laser driver is also self cooling and has two fans on the bottom of the heatsink. and the scanner amps are mounted to a piece of aluminum. the psu's are mounted in a way where the fans circulate ari through them using my fans inside the laser.
this picture describes airflow.
the lasers fan and the drivers 2 fans pushes air out the filter on the left, and then there is a another matching filter on the opposite side that you cannot see that lets airflow in and then there is a fan and filter on the top that pulls the air through. all of the parts say cool to the touch.
it is completely sealed besides the filters so i can use it in dusty settings with no worry of my optics getting dirt on them
If i had to guess i would have to say maplin:Hey Josh, Where did you get that case / housing?
I got the 20k scanner in and you were right, everything is tiny. A CPU case is way overkill on size and a smaller one would be much better.
sweet thanks. yeah I would use it for just green for now. I'm going to build just a green one first for a DJ and use the $$ I sell it for to build myself a RGV analogi actually bought it at frys. if you planning on doing any more colors you will not be able to use that enclosure.
it would be extensive work and small diodes, ie not much power and your dichros would have to be tiny and really not worth the effort. but for single color i would say go for it. but its still a small case. i dont have anymore room what so ever.
With sound activation, the dips should be set to, everything "On", except "1,2 and 10", so "Off,Off,On,On,On,On,On,On,On,OffI was trying the other day to get the sound activation to work with the supplied 14 channel DMX program board but couldn't figure out how to get the correct settings to make it work.
Here's the manual:
does anyone know the correct DIP switch settings to get the scanner to be sound activated? I have the mic and pot hooked up and everything and tried various settings of:
for DIP 10 to 1,
Sound off * * * * * on on on off
also tried 1 to 10..
it seems to just go in what looks like the demo mode or something, will show a bunch of different shapes and animations then counts to 10 and says thank you, good bye, some japanese characters, then starts over..
anyone know ?
works! thanks so muchWith sound activation, the dips should be set to, everything "On", except "1,2 and 10", so "Off,Off,On,On,On,On,On,On,On,Off
Also make sure the included Pot and Mic are plugged in to the DMX board.
