PIN2DMD EVO 128x32 connection help

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I am the proud owner of 2 new evo bards now! Wondering if someone can help a newbie out. They have 3 connections on the board 5v power 12v power and 12v.

I'm connecting to a real machine ( Getaway WPC) I'm guessing all I need is 12 v to the 4 pin terminal from J116/117 etc and it will run. But do I need the other 5v connected as well and what is the 2 screw 12v terminal for?

Sorry if it has been raised but I can't find the full answer anywhere here or online or any pictures of them connected other than the voltage source photos for tapping.

Thank you..

Hey Kurt, Glad the display arrived OK.   You just need to connect the 12V connector on the EVO display to the WPC board J116/117/118 connector as shown here...

Also,  I just hooked up one to my Addams family.  Take a look at this thread.   The display in the pics is not an EVO , it's my regular display with a 12V power board but the connection from the WPC board is what you need.

Also, to answer your question about the 2nd 2-screw 12V connector, it doesn't matter which connector you use, they both serve the same purpose.  Use whichever one works best.
