Hello everyone,
I have recently bought an GU 5.3 socket 12V RGB LED spot with an IR remote. For my project, I would need the IR receiver to be outside of the lamps housing. Can I simply desolder the IR receiver and resolder it to the circuit board using wires and place it outside of the lamps housing?
(circuit board is attached as picture)

If the wires are more than a few cm then I'd add a 100n bypass cap across the IR detector's power pins. But if the wires are very long (say 1/2m) they may pick up stray RF that mucks with the sensor data. Also, are you sure the 12V powering the lamp is totally isolated from your mains supply? If not, the remote sensor becomes a major safety issue.
