Hi,

I have an FDS SYS 64\128 board which I must say I am very pleased with. I am getting to the stage with my wiring where I need to consider back lighting for my K2 switches. One of the leds in each K2 switch will be on all of the time. I believe the maximum leds that can be used from one of the outputs on the sys board is two. I would like to daisy chain the leds to simplify the wiring.

On the sys board there is the pwr_in connector , the usb connector and a pwr out connector, I was wondering what the pwr out is for and if I can use this. I could also set this up from an independent power source, to do this, what should be the voltage\amps for the leds?

Any help would be appreciated

Hi Steve

The LED's in the K2's can be lit by the SYS card. 2 is recommended and usually what we do. You can use an Internal Variable to keep the LED on by using "Always On".

The other power plug let's you daisy chain another SYS card in large setups. It is only a bridge from the SYS power supply.
