PixelsAfter expanding to include Glossary Link RGB pixels this year, we are having many hurdles to cross.  Examples of those hurdles are finding software to run the Glossary Link sequence files, pixels, power supplies, enclosures, and the list goes on.

 

 

Power SuppliesSince we assembled everything, one thing we noticed - enclosure heat.  So, we began a quest to help alleviate this problem. With extensive searching, we decided to use Soffit Vents for homes.  Use a three inch hole saw and drill in the cover directly in front of the power supply fan.  Make sure to mark the cover properly then take it off to prevent damage to the power supply.  Place a bead of silicone around the lip of the vent and press firmly in the cut hole to seal from water intrusion.

 

Initial tests so far have been very promising.  No water is getting in but allowing for heat to escape.
