More and more people are asking me how to implement 12V triggers to drive ICEpower1200AS2 and 2000AS2 boards or even more - make master-slave configurations out of 1200AS2.
In this video, I am summarizing key knowledge on how to do it. There are minimum electronic components needed to finish your product. 3.5mm TRS socket for 6.5mm hole (Standard) and two 10K resistors. I also included instructions on how to set 1200AS2 in master mode to drive 200AS2, another great and cost-effective ICEpower board.
For those who are making projects with a 1200AS2 fantastic board, my company is providing an assembled kit with a built-in PWM temperature-managed silent fan. The kit comes with assembled connectors but without a board. https://www.tcrastrs.com/tcr1200-diy-kit
Prices are available on my webshop https://www.tcrastrs.com/shop.
ICEpower 1200AS2boards are available in retail for some time. Icepower1200AS2 designer manual you can download from my website here https://www.tcrastrs.com/_files/ugd/8...
or find on the internet. To find a 3.5 mm socket make a search with the keyword “trs 3.5mm chassis mounted socket” and you will find it. For small parts including a 3.5 mm TRS socket, there is a good Poland-based catalog where to search for small parts in small volumes for EU customers https://www.tme.eu/lv/
It does not make sense to provide links to components because those are valid for a short period. It is better to use a search function inside the catalog. eBay is a good alternative to search for components. Looking for the boards – there is one reliable shop SoundImport where I am purchasing samples. In small volumes, those are cheaper than purchasing directly from the manufacturer https://www.soundimports.eu/en/audio-...
