CCB, CCF User Guides Posted

Recommended Posts

I'm always a day late and a dollar short when discovering things, but since I haven't seen anything posted "recently," I will go out on a limb and point out that LOR has posted support documentation - user guides - for the CCB, CCF, etc in the support section, Showtime Accessories. http://www.lightorama.com/Documentation.html
If this is old news, I apologize.

Per the User Guide...I guess this is a change from what they were originally going to do:

The Cosmic Color Bulbs are two 50 LED lamp bulb strings that include a controller with a built-in power supply

Where they were going to sell them as a single 50 ct string, but you COULD hook up two strings per controller, and also buy them as a set of two strings...or just one.

I wonder if this also means that the two strings can go end to end instead of each one needing to be plugged in directly to the controller???

We'd need to get confirmation on this, but I suspect that if you order a 50 count string, you get one string connected to a controller. If you order 2 50 count strings, you get two strings connected to the controller. (The 2 50 count strings would be connected as shown in the picture.)

I don't think there is an option to connect the CCB's end to end to create a 100 count string.

guess the user manual also answered my other question:

What’s in the Box
 One or two 50 bulb strings
 320 channel controller in a plastic
weatherproof box
 Universal power supply built into the
controller
 User manual

is this a new feature or was it always going to be that way?

Looks like end to end CCB's might be doable in the future:

Page 12 of the Manual:

Number of end-to-end ribbons/strings

Sets the number of end-to-end connected bulb
strings. This is not implemented at this time.

1. The controller supports a maximum of 50
physical pixels per bulb string. As bulb
strings are added end-to-end, adjacent
pixels are combined to limit the number of
pixels to 50. E.g. for two bulb strings, a
physical pixel becomes 2 adjacent bulbs.

2. A 2 amp 5 vdc power supply is required for
each additional bulb string. This is because
the voltage drop is too great for more than
50 bulbs and colors will be incorrect. Also,
the CCB controller has power for a maximum
of 100 bulbs (two 50-bulb strings.)

3. The theoretical limit on the number of end-to end
connected bulb strings is 4.

Alright!! and TWO bulb sizes!!!

Detailed Bulb Description
A bulb string is 26.5 feet long, 24.5 feet of bulbs on
6” centers and a 2 foot leader to the controller. The
C7 bulb bases and wires are green. The illuminated
part of the C7 bulb is clear faceted plastic that
diffuses the RGB LED in the bulb base.
The cylindrical pixel bulbs are tubes of translucent
plastic with a large RGB LED at one end. They are
designed for sign construction.
The following picture shows the relative bulb sizes.

See page 6 for a picture!!

Okay..I'm excited!! is it Christmas yet?!?!?!

It's too early to tell 100%, but it looks like there are not one, but two bulbs - C7 size and 12mm? I could be wrong, and frequently am.

Look at your post, now back to my post, now back at your post, now back to my post. Sadly, Look down, back up, where are you? You’re on a boat with the forum post your post could smell like. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s an oyster with two tickets to that thing you love. Look again, the tickets are now diamonds. Anything is possible when your post smells like my post. I'm on a horse!


Yea so I'm bored! So what post do I need to look at to find the price on these? Lol

Now back to your post!

that hasn't been posted yet...at least for this year.

Last year if I remember correctly it was going to be $149 for one 50ct string, (Plus controller) and $200 for 2 50 ct strings and controller...

or free for one smelly oyster with a good sized pearl in it!!! :P

Like, hummm.... kinda hard to see the post prior to my post when I'm posting a reply to the post previous to that one's posting at the same time as the prior post is posting.

@mmaness, just look at my post again and it will all make sense.
@Jim, I really hope those prices have changed since when they were first coming out.
@Jeff and Evan, Thank you sirs. I have my moments. Lol

Don't get me wrong I love my LOR boards and software but let's call a spade a spade. This is just a string of lights we are talking about here, $150 for a 24" string of pixels without a controller? If I spent $150+ on one string of lights my wife would punch me in my junk and kick a puppy at the same time.

Just my 2 cents.

Unless I've read page 5 incorrectly, the CCB strings do come with a controller.

After looking at what it would cost to get the 50 pixel string, c9 covers, power supply, controller, and shipping from china it comes up to around $88 to my porch but then of course I would have to put it all together and wouldn't have macros or the plug and play features these would offer. So if it came out to 2 strings and a controller for around $200 then it would make sense. Grrrrr why did I ever get into this hobby! LOL I have now talked myself into buying them.
That poor puppy.

Now, I can't wait!!! I'm dying here!! Of course a price may get rid of the sickness real quick (it may straight out give me a heart attack!) depending.......

Thanks for posting the link. I'm sitting in a hotel room in Las Vegas (I'm here for a conference), and it gave me something to read. Very cool. Too bad the end to end strings is not yet supported, but I can work around that just fine...

Now we just need an availability date - my credit card is waiting...
