    Default Mounted Controller

    Here's an 8 channel LOR controller that I mounted today in a Broadband Store enclosure.

    Two more to go.

    I'm using them for the flakes/spinners.

    Well, with all that room, I'm sure it was easy doing the wiring!

    That's for sure.

    Unlike the 16 channel.

    Something seems wrong with picture of the 16 channel. While I'm no expert, and I know you are probably much much smarter then me, it's just I have never seen the wires running over the hinge side of the box before. I learned a new method tonight lol

    Scott, those unattached wires appear to be the neutrals from the second side of the controller. You will notice on the left side of the board (as pictured), only half of the neutrals appear to be attached. I have several of those controllers that still need the final assembly - - if you would like to come by and play with one. These kits come with the thick black wires, with ground pins. But I need them to be longer for under my Mega-Tree. So I will be making my own longer wires and attaching SPT2 sockets (females) and labels.

    This might be a good time for you to some hands-on experience with the hardware. I can also invite Dariusz and we can go through bringing up the controllers, assigning the controller numbers, and general hardware-oriented portions of the architecture ..
    Thanks,

    William in your picture of the 16 channel controller in the top right upper corner I have found that if you trim the corner of the heat sink some the cover fits better. I have done this on all of my controller.

    Remember the snowflakes/spinners I had last year?

    Well, I took those 8 channel controllers, put them in an enclosure then bolted them on the pole that supports those flakes.




    Now, it's a one-stop shop.

    On the broadband enclosure does anyone use the threaded stud to help keep the lid closed? I use a bolt and nut through the hole part. Be nice to fine the correct locking nut, but it may be to expensive.

    I never use it.

    Just the snap part on the box.
