    strobe light strings?

    Mine were delivered to the mail room at work about 1030 this morning. Takes anywhere from 2 hours to two days to get the 100 yards or so to my shop. Had not made it before I left for the weekend - damn!

    5.0.24 link error

    The first download link in Mike's 5.0.24 announcement results in a 404 Not found error The second works fine. After fixing the link error, please delete this thread.

    strobe light strings?

    If it's a Gen 3 controller, you could create a dimming curve that sets any command other than 0 to output 100%. That does not protect against plugging into the wrong cord however. The only real protection against plugging into the wrong cord would be a relay right at the device you are attempting to protect. That would get rather cumbersome and add quite a bit of expense. That would not protect against twinkle however... Make sure of what you are plugging in...

    Adding pixel arches to existing LOR

    No. Typically when people use pixels for arches, they have 25 or 50 pixels per arch. I have six arches that each have 50 pixels on two inch spacing that are illuminating the inside of 3/4 inch PEX tubing. The first link is my arches and how they are built. The second link is my way too sparce videos page, but watch the first video to see some of what I did with them. http://newburghlights.org/CCP_Arches.html http://newburghlights.org/Videos.html
  6. Unplug your existing USB to RS485 adapter and plug in a POWERED USB hub into that port on the computer. Then plug multiple USB to RS-485 adapters into that hub. Note: STRONGLY recommend a powered hub. This is the one I'm using on my server: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DQFGH80/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 This is a USB 3.0 hub, but you can get the USB 2.0 version for a few bucks less if desired.
  7. That would be be just one network. The two jacks on a USB485B are just two jacks on the same network. Mr. P just beat me to this info...
  8. The biggest issue you are going to run into is channel capacity. The ELL is limited to 115K data speed and NOT enhanced protocol. Five CCBs is 1500 channels which is pushing it for 115K. More importantly, since you plan on using Pixel Editor functions (yea, I know they are not called that in S5), that requires Enhanced Protocol - which the ELL does not support. Run a cable and run 500K enhanced for the CCBs (and the CTB16s if they are Gen 3). If the CTB16s are not Gen 3, plan on a second network for them.

    My July 4th "light" and noise show

    I always say: "Leave the fireworks to the professionals - like me" And yes, I have all eight fingers plus two thumbs, and they all work properly.

    Windows 10 familiarization

    My personal opinion on RAID-0, avoid it like the plague. A real pain if a drive fails (twice the chance of that happening) or as I had happen a few years ago, the computer died. Had to spend a while to get the RAID-0 "lined up" so the data could be read on another computer. RAID-10 maybe, but now you're talking about four of those expensive drives!

    Windows 10 familiarization

    The C drive IS a M.2 SSD and is BLAZING fast. The D drive is a 2TB spinning drive. In my case, the LOR file storage is on the server on spinning disk - two 1TB spinners in a RAID-1 array that will do parallel read. The LAN connectivity between the sequencing computer and the server is GB all the way.

    Adding pixel arches to existing LOR

    Orville, I finally got my new computer setup last night, so should be able to get my old video card (that does work with PE) out to you in the next couple days.
