    Connected but not communicating?

    I just found how to reset the unit, I have one of the two CTB16PC versions, but reset is the same, power down, remove the jumper on J0, apply power, wait a few seconds, power down, re-install jumper and re-apply power. It is now accepting chase sequence commands. Thanks for the help.

    Connected but not communicating?

    I am communicating with the controller. Where is this "select control lights" at? I'm still stuck in testing in the Hardware program.

    Connected but not communicating?

    I have a CTB16PC. The other day I had connected to it, set it to 01, ran all 16 outputs. All worked. Then I played around some. Today I have no outputs at all and the hardware program shows it found one unit (01) but it won't turn on any of the outputs, manually or using chase sequence. It did find a unit (01), and when I try to change the unit address from a 01 to 02 or back, it says "Unable to locate the unit to change address. Check the connections and power". But it does also say "Found one unit ID 01". I click refresh and it searches and finds one unit, CTB16PC ver 4.32. I select chase sequence and also tried single outputs, but today it does not work. Any ideas?

    How to send display to controller?

    I think I found it. I must not have a "stand alone system" cause when I tried to do that it said my available size is a -1, so I found the Sequence editor and simply pressing the play button will run the show. Not so hard to do, but very hard to find instructions, which I still have not found. Figured this out by playing with it after giving up on locating instructions.

    I did configure it and tested it, just can't find the secret to running it.

    How to send display to controller?

    Good question! Well...it's the kit version, the manual says 16/32/64/128 channel package. I know I have the 16 channel version. It connects up with a RS485 adapter. Other than that, I see no model numbers or anything saying what it is. From looking at the light o rama web site, looks like I bought a Light-O-Rama CTB16PC Controller - Kit. I had one of these years ago, and it seems I was able to disconnect, but either way, I can't seem to find how to send the program to the controller. They've made it complex. And I program PLCs for a living!

    How to send display to controller?

    I had a 16 channel controller a few years back and was able to send the "display" to the controller and disconnect the laptop. I just bought another 16 channel kit, but can't seem to find the method of sending the thing to the controller, except I was able to test the unit with that other program. Can I run it without the laptop, and if not, how do I run it with? Thanks!
