It was posted that adding any additional Lighting to a Spike game, by tapping into GI, or Insert
Lighting can fry a node board.
Is there an Amperage limit that can be supported? Is it both GI and Inserts? or should it be avoided
at all times?
What are peoples experiences, and are others selling Mods that tap in, that see no issues?

(Likely covered buried in a Board thread, but wanted to focus on this)

Rock Custom Pinball is selling mods that use light sensors placed near existing lights to trigger mods from a separate power supply. It's pretty cool.

I went with a optical trigger on my SPIKE machines. You can pull 12v off one of the connectors on the power board for SPIKE-2 pins. Original SPIKE, it is safest to pull 48v and convert down using a dc-dc converter.
Since much of the lighting connections are on PCBs, it is more difficult to interface, especially with RGB inserts.
