Power Converter

On February 1, 2010, in openFloor, by Vlad Cazan

I have finished working on the power converter for the IR illuminator. I created this piece seperate from the actual LED matrix so that if anything where to go wrong with either part of the product, it can be quickly identified and fixed. Also in the future if I wanted to add more LEDs to the matrix, nothing else would be on the board except LEDs. I have placed the switch under the power supply cable so that I can cut a small opening inside of a box and place the whole product in the box without having to cut many holes for each plug and switch. The next steps for this project are creating the actual matrix of LEDs, and then starting to work on the camera tracking software.

I have added a green and red led, as a status indicator. Since the IR LEDs do not look different when they are on, it was important to know if the power was really connected.
