  • ** NEW ** Fusion Control Centre's Itty Bitty Brain!

    The new Itty Bitty Brain! It is basically a very compact and fully put together device.

    It has 2 digital outputs, but the kicker is that the digital outputs have the option (via jumper block) to be connected to an onboard relay or not. Also you can access a 5v signal when the output is on as well which makes interfacing custom hardware easier.

    It has a mini-usb connection for communication and a 12v jack to power the relays. The relays will only flip with 12v, but the outputs will still turn on and off with only USB power. There are two mounting points to tie the board down. Each output if it goes through the relay goes to 2 top-screw pressure terminals just like the Mini-Relay Board.

    Price should be between $25 and $30.

      That's one outstanding little board there Toastie!

      Just one question, and there is probably a good reason for it, but would it be better having the usb and 12V jacks on the back end of the board, making a nice narrow package? Unless the 12V causes issues being that close to the USB port, I'm by no means an electrical guy

      Price is fantastic too, great to see mate

        Thanks again!

        It would be better to have both the USB and 12v jacks facing the same way. There is no reason for it not to be.

        How's this:

            definitely agree with the power and USB being on the same side of the board it will make enclosure and installation easier. Will this board regulate 12v like big brother?

              It has no need to regulate 12v, as it is completely powered via USB. It takes about 5mA (sitting there thinking) to 20mA (both outputs on).The 12v is only used to flip the relays, and that's it.
