    Default Light-O-Rama CMB24D Deluxe DC Card

    this may have been asked before, but is the Light-O-Rama CMB24D Deluxe DC Card; about the same as the SanE682 board?

    if not what is the difference? what can the E682 do that CMB24D can't? etc,

    The LOR Deluxe DC Card is nothing like an E682. The DC card is not for pixels, it is simply 24 channels of DC, and mostly used for controlling 8 dumb RGB strings. LOR also offers their own package with this controller and 8 RGB Spot Lights. They also offer it with 8 RGB strips. But these are all what we call "dumb" RGBs. This means all of the bulbs come on with the same color at the same time.

    In complete contrast, the E682 controls pixels. Pixels are LEDs with a small controller chip on each bulb (or group of bulbs). The E682 controls about 2000 pixels (6000 channels) one pixel at a time.

    From an investment standpoint, it's getting to be not worth the effort to buy dumb RGB controllers. Except for the one big benefit of Dumb controllers which is being able to drive very long wires out to the dumb RGB strings, strips or bulbs. But with pixels you can also group them to look like dumb devices where needed.

    I hope you can make the next TASL meeting. We go through this stuff in detail at each one. There are lot more things happening with pixels than what I just described above, so we've been contrasting the different solutions that are emerging. Wireless solutions are growing fast with pixels (for example).
