hey all. i just put all the mannequins set with teletype, ansible, and er301 in my move 104. i set the er301 5v to BUS, as well as split my usb cable to the monome to external power. hence i should be close to being ok with power. supposedly i’d be at 1023 mA +12V which would be over for the move 104 (850-900mA on the +12V). but brian has said here that the er301 set to BUS would be 120mA +12V, and according to brian from monome, the ansible draws only 40mA +12V when not powering the monome, which i’m not cuz of my mod. so, according to these two workarounds, instead of the 1023 mA +12V, i should be actually at around 683 mA +12V, 321 mA -12V, and 0 mA 5V. the specs on the move104 should be +12V @ 900mA, -12V @ 700mA, and 500mA @ +5V. well within means it would seem.
here’s the issue: my er301 visibly pulses when placed in the move104 with mannequins modules. when the mannequins modules (all) are unplugged, it stops pulsing. when i plug it into another case, it stops pulsing as well. but i’m pretty sure i’m within my power range, yet who knows. here’s a video or what the display is doing. it’s fully functional, btw, as far as i can tell. i noodled two hours with no issues (i thinks!?)
thanks. just wanna know if i’m risking any problems with breaking anything. i’m not concerned about my case. it’s cheap. i’ll prolly just get another case. anyways, thanks in advance.
