I read a few posts mentioning you have to wait a certain number of posts till you can post live links, and a few more till you can post images. I know that when asking questions about drivers, pictures are important, so…luckily I have a blog to put it up on!
Here’s the deal; I bought and received a sony diode and axis module from stonetek. I built the driver in anticipation, but I’m a bit hesitant to “just plug it in”
Here are a few questions:
1)what is the intended input voltage (when using this with a sony 16x diode)
2)I have heard i should set the Ma to between 160 and 250, with the lower settings being safer for diode life
3)My capacitor doesn’t look like anyone else’s How do I determine the correct polarity of it?
4)after testing the setup for a while, what is the proper procedure to discharge the capacitor?
Here is an overview of the breadboard

Thanks a lot guys! I’m really excited to have yet another geeky, expensive, hobby that’s difficult to explain to women!
