Plecter Labs Luxeon Driver and MR Boards?
« on: April 01, 2009, 10:53:47 PM »
i was look at the Plecter Labs luxeon driver and saw that it could be hooked up to the MR board and was wondering if it it could run with 2 880mAh 3.6v Li-ion batteries?

From erv's site:
"This electronic module dims in and out the light of the Luxeon LED. With the proper diffusion film (our Magic Film is perfect for this) it gives the illusion that the blade goes out from the hilt. Controlled by latching switch  (not provided). An additionnal input allow the control of a clash effect (manual or automatic using a shock sensor). Regulates the current in the Luxeon LED for a maximum autonomy and constant brightness.
Dimensions : 35x21 mm.
Power Supply : 3.5 to 7 V - 1.5 A (with the Luxeon LED)
Compatibility : Luxeon star III (3 watt) or Luxeon K2 - 1.5 A max."

Power supply is from 3.5 volts to 7 volts....using two 3.6v Li-Ions usually equals 7.2 volts....fully charged,  they will be close to 8 volts.    That might be too much for the driver board,  and I can tell you for sure that it's too much for the MR soundboard.  Their maximum input voltage is 6 volts.
