Expansion Boards

Local expansion

16 additional local fused outputs per expansion. Up to two expansions are supported (32 additional local outputs, 48 total outputs).
NOTE: F16v3 (white) expansions must be used when using two off the same F16v3 controller. F16v2 (red) expansion or F16v3 (white) expansion will work when using just one expansion.
