Light Dimming 2.0
« on: May 09, 2012, 02:56:10 AM »
Making a second light dimming box. More channels, hopefully better software. Maybe some LED dimming. I'm really trying to get everything done for OMMF.

Finished output board, and applied some liquid electrical tape to bottom, to reduce chance of short. Also started mounting components, and wiring box.
