    Are these capable of handling the higher voltages of 36V and 48V power supplies?

    Should do fine, the only active component is a red led in series with a 2k2 LED. On the higher voltages, you might be punishing the LED but even if that kills it, the rest is passive and will work as planned

    My power supply stops working when I connect the PowerCase front plate to the terminals. The led is on when I just connect the power and off when I add the front plate. I have taken apart the PowerCase to troubleshoot the issue but I can't see what I am doing wrong. Is it me or the board?
