thanks for all the nice feedback

Just got the circuit boards i designed for the caution panel from the manufacturer. They look great! The boards will basically hold all the LED panels and their controllers. I've gone with PWM controllers so that i can control the brightness of each LED individually.



Will start assembling the board and testing it as soon as i have some spare time As you can see i had to order a minimum of 5 boards, so if anyone is interested i might sell a couple of them fairly cheap (with instructions).

It's actually not one chip per led, the LED's have the same footprint as a DIL16 package though.
I use TI TLC5940 16 channel driver chips (so 6 in total).

Looks very serious.

How much per board does add up to?

Finally got the time to finish up the electronics for the caution panel




My plan is to connect all panels through ethernet and to use Power over ethernet to power them, that way i can easily turn them all on at the same time. I'm working on a server software for managing the connections!

Also bought bought a transponder panel and an intercom panel on ebay which i will interface!



My next plan is to look into the CDU or the CMS!

What a nice work

I must admit, i like the switches used for the CDu and will try to use the for my UFC, but i ask myself the great question, how to illuminate them?
For the CDU, I soldered legs to SMD LEDs to put them over the switch body, but this is a fragile solution....
Anybody got an idea? Swither, how are you gonna solve this?

Greetings and keep on building!
