I wish to mount the driver to my light on a wall outside of my tent. I DO NOT wish to start a fire. Anyone got any tips for ways to safely do this. I was thinking of putting a bamboo cutting board in between the driver and the wall. Anyone know a cheaper solution, or if my idea is not as cool as I think?
U can get a piece of plywood and cut a bit bigger than driver so u can screw it down
I just got 2 drivers mounted. I’ll go snap a pic or 2 and show ya my idea
I had a nice piece of galvanized laying around so mounted it on 2x risers to give some air movement on all sides.
Make strong secure electrical connections. A bad/loose connection can cause excess heat and possibly a short then fire.
Make sure all your leads are secure and can not fall, be pulled on or rub.
I used tinned strained wire rated for 600volts.
Sorry I lied, I used the tinned strained wire for wiring the boards. My power leads from drivers to light connection is strained 12ga rated for 600v
Look around the scrapyard see if you can find a piece of heat sink. Lot of it come out of the industrial manufacturers get scrapped when they do upgrades. Good luck
