Since I have 12v powering an outdoor laser, I wish I had a wired voltage step down to a slug that could be placed in the 3v dry contact sensor so I didn’t have to replace that battery every 9 months since it’s secured to keep unit waterproof.
Setup: Laser Trip Sensor?
Anyone have ideas? I could buy a voltage step down device http://a.co/eo6CH6M and solder it but it seems like there must be some battery sized alternative out that makes hard wiring a sensor with power an easier task if the sensor is running adjacent to a power source anyway.
I’m guessing this probably won’t be applicable to many sensors people have active as those probably aren’t located near power but I’m sure some users have sensors placed in locations where it’s very hard to replace batteries and would also want wired power options.
