30 Euros for shipping to the US  smiley-confuse

Any idea when this'll be available in the US online stores?

No kits in the US?

Ok, I agree this could be a specific one...so not that basic question. I did reference the schematic although the manufacturer didn't do a great job laying out the whole circuit, so I don't know where the DC-DC converter might be, or how it even looks like - is it the funnly looking coil in my picture?

Appreciate the time, Mike!

Jeff from xylotex just replied, suggesting the circuit may be fried because of high-voltage/current. Anybody know what I can test on the circuit (or DC-DC converter) to confirm that?

Really? I thought that was a basic question!

Electronics noob...well it's been a while and I am brushing up

Got this old xylotex driver from a friend, and am trying to bring it back to life. The input voltage seems fine (+23v), but the rest of the test points on the board don't seem to be running +5v, like the xylotex datasheet says (http://www.xylotex.com/XS3525V202.pdf)

I checked the Vcc/GND at the lower right corner, and the best reading I get is +0.05v

As a result, I am not able to verify the rest of the circuit and hence my motor doesn't seem to be taking any load

Anyone run into a similar issue? Any help, greatly appreciated!

Thx
