    The dimming and on board drivers make them so much more appealing.

    i dont think on-board drivers were indicated

    Zitat:
    "the key change and reason for the rev was the development of the driver PCB with 3 built in pots, we wanted to make the driving of the board as simple as possible"

    http://www.rollitup.org/t/sol-skin-let-the-journey-begin.943891/page-11#post-13968496

    That sounds to me he creates an own PCB driver solution for his boards and one need only a CV driver to drive the boards and dimm each channel separately.
    Whether it will be directly on the SolSkin board or on an additional PCB is still unclear, but I could easily imagine an on-board solution, as such a solution do not need much space.

    The driver is not on the SSK board, its a daughter board primarily because it will have multiple drive options, not necessarily for a single board but we are fleshing out those features in the next rev. The idea is to have multiple channel drive(3) but all driven of one external CV driver, we want to simplify the multiple channel concept as much as possible

    Teaser, just arrived, Driver board, will drive 3 channels 48V, full on board constant current, driven by 48V CV source,3 on board POTs, board is dual function master/slave so one master can control multiple slaves. Led PCBs imminent

    fully built Solskin 3 channel dimmer, full on board constant current drive for 3 channels, with master slave so multiple boards can be controlled from pots on one board, driven from 48Volts CV
    cheers

    Retail price for one of these boards?

    Which driver chip are you using? What's max output voltage? max current? Efficiency? When can you ship? How much plus shipping to a US address?

    You'll probably find they can be powered with an HLG CC too. Cheaper than an HEP

    I wonder who actually want all this added cost..Will you be selling the boards by themselves aswell ?

    1.how many watts is driver
    2. what is efficiency%
    3.how much are they?\
    4.ip65/67..?..
    ..i can see an led pcb not being ip65/67

    but cool ...mr wellight

    Nice. Tw are needed a master and slave unit. have prices yet for these? I noticed you use CV drivers to establish 48v and establish current demand based on loading. Similar to DMX controllers, master/slave relationship.

    Once we complete testing we will list them up with costing

    Currently in test, but will release full datasheet when completed, I have first 200 boards so hope you have on line beginning Feb

    Yes, you dont have to use our dimmer, it will just make the Led board simpler to use

    Will post complete data on completion of testing, we are looking at an IP case to mount into

    So the one board is either a master or slave, Slave has no pots added and you link via control connectors

    looking good so far, Cree XD16 really punch above their weight

    Love to see this updated. Hope you roll this out succesfully. Did you make a grow with solskin rev1? I really think you should try to get a documented grow onto riu, or get someone to do it for you.
    This seems like a really nice product, especially for us in the euro-crowd: overseas shipping and customs means QBs / solskins are pretty much the same level of convenience. But a 2 channel solskin is about 90€/$ and has as many diodes as 2 qbs, and LM301 ontop of that.
    Hope to see more details on this:
    Parmap and thermal details at 100w/no heatsink (this true, 100w and no heatsink?!?! That would be killer!)
    Parmaps of the specialty spectrums: 2000k / fullspectrum etc
    Details on what bins are available and what 90 cri options are available.

    And get someone growing with this :)

    Thanks Rocket, yes want to have several doc'd grows and have started testing to create ppfd maps. As much as I want to offer LM301B, these are like rocking horse shit in the 39 lumen bin and only offered in 70 CRI, so initially we are going with Nichia as they all come in 210LPW and have the 2000K bins in the range and 90 CRI in the same performance as 561 C
    Cheers
