    I will add to this topic as things change but currently my boards are listed all over the place on the forum but they will all now be listed on here. Info on them is on the wiki and http://auschristmaslighting.com/wiki/Category:Hanson_Electronics points to them.

    User manuals for all my boards should be both on the wiki and downloadable from my site.

    Currently for sale is
    AAHMega60 (M60) 60 channel dmx board with zone dimming, test mode and high current ability
    2811DC15 15 channel 2811 pixel network to DC board. Isolated power supplies and signal path.
    2811DC30 30 channel version of above.
    USB-DMX dongle A non isolated sub dongle that can be used for ESTA pinout DMX boards or can be used to control LOR boards with the aid of a crossover.
    2801DC15 15 channel 2801 pixel network to DC board. Isolated power supplies and signal path.
    2801DC30 30 channel version of above.
    HEXFUSE 6 way fuse board. 3 input/6 output

    Coming soon
    DMX36 36 channel dmx board with 4 fused zones and 30A/zone current capacity


    Probably coming soon
    ??? ??? 4 way isolated dmx splitter


    My website is still under early stages of development and online ordering isn't complete yet. Sometime soon I'll put in some time onto my site when my web developer can show me what to do (thanks Ryan).

    As the site gets worked on I will be adding more spare parts for boards as well as other blinky essentials.

    Alan, might be a silly question but do we order off the website. I just seem to remember reading somewhere before to not do that and to send you a PM instead. I'm happy either way, whatever easier for you.

    I haven't implemented the checkout on my site due to not being happy with the way postage is calculated. You can send me an email through my sites contact page, a PM through ACL or an email through ACL. My contact details are on the back of all my manuals if you really need to find my mobile number or email.

    Just thought I'd post here as the last post says the checkout wasn't operational. It is now. All postage is calculated at "Express Post" for Australia or "Pack and Track" for those unfortunate not to live in Aus :)
    There's no need to log in or create an account to buy anything through my site. That may cause a bit of confusion and sometime soon I'll talk with my web guru to see if we can remove the "Account" tab on the site.
    As there's very few site hits on my site (7 hits yesterday) I'll spam a bit of info here on what is there.
    There is info on the ACL wiki and on my site as to the specs of the boards.

    Spares
    Mosfets to suit Ray Wu 27 Ch boards, all of my boards and also LOR DC boards

    I ship to pretty well anywhere in the world. If it's not an option on my site then just ask and I will get it added. I've added South Africa, Switzerland, Thailand and Belgium due to customers asking. Within Australia the standard delivery option is Express Post and most deliveries go out the same day. Overseas goes out via standard Australia Post Air Mail with the U.S. taking about 5-7 days, England has been about the same and the worst I've had was Thailand which was a couple of weeks. I can organise DHL or TNT or other fast freight options for overseas if required.

    Gday,

    Good to see you back here.

    Any plans on a larger version of the DMX2-18 ?

    Cheers

    I've thought about making a bigger version. A fair part of the cost is in the DMX and power supply circuitry so scaling up is relatively cheap. I'll think about whacking a prototype through when I do another pcb run.

    the DC15/30 is one of the most under utilised boards out there imo. I can't praise it highly enough and it's bulletproof. All my Bunnings/BigW lights are now hanging off a single DC30, I almost gave them away as never thought they'd get used!

    Almost every 2811DC board has been sold so far in Australia. As far as I can remember only 2 have ever been shipped to the U.S. :jawdrop:
