Hi Everyone,

I bought my first PIN2DMD’s and they arrived today. I can’t wait to put them into my machines, they look awesome!

I have read on the forums about Evo boards and other styles. Can anyone tell me what style board I have purchased? I have attached a photo.

I am fairly capable at general pinball stuff, but this PIN2DMD setup has me stumped. Any help would be really appreciated...

Looks someone without profound knowledge about pinball power sources made his own shield design here.
You risk your pinball hardware if you use this board in a e.g. WPC machine. In a WPC machines the 12V on the original DMD power connector (12V DIGITAL) are regulated by a LM7812 at Q2 which can only deliver up to 1A. The Panels on a pin2dmd
use up to 4A/5V depending on the brightness settings. That´s is why I recommend to use the 12V POWER rail which is available at J116 or a external power supply. Please read here about your power sources 

Why do some people think, I haven´t thought about the original power connector as a source for the evo. There is a good reason
why I did no go that route - to save your valuable pinball hardware.
