    Question Viasho driver, lab replacement

    Does anyone have a driver / control circuit or know of a replacement for the lab style driver on a Viasho 532nm head. Also interested in pinout. Want to replace a VD-IIIA with a smaller circuit for use in PJ.

    Thanks

    Email Frank at Viasho with the serial number of the head. He can check if i will work with their PCB driver. These go for US$180 plus shipping. I asked about this the other day.

    Cheers

    I've been looking at the PicoDrive DPSS... But waiting on some more info before I buy.
    Could you let me know if you get any info? I'll do the same...

    Cheers,

    I sent my questions to McCarrot, but he never got back to me with the manuals...

    I'm *very* interested in the range of PicoDrives you sell.

    1.) Can you send me a PDF manual for the RBLD PicoDrive; I can't find much information on how to use it. I would like to know detailed specs + connection diagrams before I buy it, to make sure it is suitable for my needs.

    2.) Do you have an English manual for the DPSS PicoDrive? I've run the German version though Google Translate, but it's not a good translation, so I do not know if it is suitable for replacing a 1W Viasho driver with.

    Did Frank PM you aswell? He had me send my serial number to confirm. Looks like $180
