Back in December 05 we decided that our web cam project would require some type of additional lighting. I initiated this project by communicating with Bill Powers from Pixcontroller and Daryl from Whitetail Supply. Once all the necessary materials were in house, the project was started. I selected a small section of a 5X5 PVC fence post and cap from Home Depot for the enclosure. Once my layout for the LE board from Pix controller was installed and the lens for the PIR sensor was glued in the wiring for this project was simple by using a diagram supplied with the board. The IR array from Whitetail supply was complete and the only requirement was to install a disconnect plug on the end of its wire harness. Now is where the problems started. I could not get this project to work. My tests proved that the IR array worked just fine when hooked direct to the battery. This left the LE board from Pix as the suspect problem or maybe my ability to wire it in. This problem happened at a real busy time for the folks at Pixcontroller due to their need to arrange things for the upcoming year. This put the project on hold until things slowed down for them. In the mean time I spent hours going back over all the wiring and determined that all was correct. At the end of January the good folks at Pix contacted me and requested that all be sent to them for evaluation. This was done and once they had a chance to evaluate my work they determined that my wiring was correct and that the transistor that drives the output gate to the IR array was damaged. We were unable to determine the cause of this. Bill Powers had it repaired and shipped back to us. These folks at Pixcontroller are very customer service orientated and really go out of their way to help. Pixcontroller sells the LE board for less than $50 and the IR array from Whitetail Supply is around $100. Two 12v SLA batteries were purchased from Battery Plus outlet for $16 a piece.
