Heat sink? Good idea--Thank you. I think placing these on a motherboard will be a good idea. Is that what most people do now?

Read gecko manual. Heatsink is nessecary, and of course heatsink compound between driver and heatsink. What did you mean by motherboard?

You are getting to the fun part of the project.

I finally had to do a repair on mine. almost 2 years. The transformer/power supply is causing uneven power through the contactor. 144 volts one side 106 through the other. It was a head scratcher till we figured it out.

Infinite apologies for being sort of Dyslexic. I have been typing PDMX.
It is PMDX.com

So I believe I am going to use the PMDX-126 Rev-C breakout board. The PMDX-134 Motherboard and mount them all on an aluminum screen for a heat sink with a fan to pull the air through. I see Metalhead's setup uses the PMDX-126 at one time as well.
