LED driver board
« on: November 02, 2013, 04:33:50 pm »
Hey guys,

I have auxiliary LED lights on my motorcycle, but water got inside one of them (twice) and they rusted inside. First time I cleaned them up and they worked for a while, but water got inside again and this time they are toasted. By toasted, I mean LED driver board needs to be replaced. LED attached to a heatsink works (tried it with my power supply directly at 3.7v).

Here's pictures of LED driver board:



Board is produced by TRIAL TECH part no. 3180-PCB, v2.3.2.

I'm almost certain that I will not find the same exact one to replace, but it is worth a shot to ask here as someone here may even work there - this is a big community :D If I don't find that board, I will have to get 2 new ones (for both lights) - they shouldn't be hard to find, but will need to find ones with 2 holes for screws, and that could be a problem.

Btw, this is 3 mode driver board, and both aux led lights cost over 300 eur, so I wouldn't like to throw that much money away :D\

Any input is appreciated!

Thanks,
Balsa

Forgot to mention that current draw at 12v is:

mode 1: 250mAh
mode 2: 500mAh
mode 3: 1000mAh

Good luck. If you get a replacement, double coat it with some protective spray. Just in case.

It won't be exact, but you may find something workable at deal extreme.

Is it not perhaps "TRAIL TECH" and not "TRIAL TECH"? 

If so, these guys?

Have you tried contacting them about getting a replacement board (maybe even under warranty)?

You mentioned 3.7V so I am guessing these are white LED's for auxiliary forward lighting?  Can you read off the part numbers on the chips (especially the one where the corrosion/rust is on the wire-side of the board)?  It's possibly some sort of standard module.

It's not always the most popular person who gets the job done.

You are completely right... Its TRAIL TECH. Thank you very much for details, I already sent them an email. I doubt they will replace them under warranty as I have modified lights with an external intensity switch, replacing internal pushbutton switch. This way I can control both lights with one switch and right from my dashboard.

Coroded part is M121AD, A3D0.

I already went through all those, but they will not fit as they are smaller in diameter, and since this is motorcycle equipment I need it to sit securely inside. If I don't find any replacement board, I will get external driver circuit for it and mount it somewhere on the bike I guess.
