Down amping circuits
February 16, 2010
Alright so i have an electronics question and i'm not really sure what to do as i've never worked with this much power before. We have a 17 amp 12VDC battery connected to a power distrubution board, the board has 40 and 20 amp 12v outputs. We purchased some of the cold cathodes from parallax to put some lights on our robot however i have no clue how to down amp the power from the board.
the DC to AC converters
When I hook up the lights the converters starts burning due to overampage (i assume). My electronics knowledge is really limited, can anyone offer a simple fix? We just want the lights to work.
