Solid-State Driver Chip

19 In stock
Extra driver chip for your BooBox Flex, FlexMax, or BooBox 8's solid-state outputs.

Solid-state outputs are extremely reliable when used correctly, but they will burn out if they're shorted out or wired wrong. This is the chip that's used inside our original BooBox Flex, FlexMax and BooBox 8's (none of the current models). The chips are mounted in sockets, so the old one can be easily removed and replaced, no soldering necessary.

NOTE: The newer Flex and FlexMax models with "High Current solid-state outputs" do not need this chip.

Did I Blow My Chip?

  • If some or all of your outputs turn on and don't turn off your chip is blown.
  • If none of your outputs turn on yet everything else seems to be working fine, your chip is blown.
  • If you saw smoke and your controller smells funny, your chip is definitely blown.
