Re: RELAY8 issues / 2 faulty boards!?

I'm using a lab power supply current limited to 500mA - just to give a little protection. I've not come up to that limit yet, as I said, the max current draw so far was about 330mA at 12V. The relays I'm using are http://www.jaycar.com.au/Electromechanical-Components/Relays-%26-Accessories/PCB-Mount...

Re: RELAY8 issues / 2 faulty boards!?

Any other ideas? Those inconsistencies really seem like a buggy board, don't they? I mean either that or dodgy I2C? Anything else I can check?

However, some channels don't...

Re: RELAY8 issues / 2 faulty boards!?

EtherTen is powered via USB and relay8 via external 12v, with the link jumper not set.

RELAY8 issues / 2 faulty boards!?

I had written the code for a while and was hoping for things to just work once I got the shields... but not ...
