I didn't get an email on it. Thanks for the heads up. I was looking at PC controllers only this year anyway. Am really impressed with the prices. I might need to squeeze a 3rd controller in. ;)

So, I'll be ordering 2 full packages. Just need to decide on either the kit or assembled.trans_1x1.gifIt's only money, right?

PS Edit: I missed the other post...that explains why I didn't see the email. :shock: Must remember to read first....

The email comment was a good one. We did not send out an email on this. Just posted it here at PC. The email notification for the sale will be out in a couple weeks.

Picked up 4 Complete PC kits ..
Next sale will be 1 more CTB16D ... to power those C9's.

That will put me at 144 channels.. And let me tell you, Sequencing is
a much bigger task than it was with 64.....

I work for a Jr. College that has an electronics department. I picked up 4 of the DIY controller kits earlier in the year and the electronics lab is doing the soldering for me. The instructor was so impressed he plans on buying the software next spring and maybe 10 or so controllers to use for his class. He guaranteed the boards would work for me or he would replace them with working boards. Cant beat that!!

I just picked up 8 more units. 2 are for a friend but this year I'll have 12 units which is, uh...carry the one...192 channels, is it?

I'll also be over 80% LED lights.

BTW - I've been lurking around for a year but just recently started posting; where do you guys get the LOR logo for your sigs?

Does anyone know if the annual sale will have better prices?

Lightman,

My understanding is that this IS the annual sale - it's just starting a little early for the kits.

The sale on the ready-to-go units will start later.

Here is what Dan from LOR said in another thread:

We have placed all Planet Christmas controllers on sale early. All other controllers will be on sale during our annual sale being held late May early June.

The sale prices for the PC controller line will continue from now until the end of the annual sale. This is a good opportunity to beat the rush and we hope that it gives our shipping department a little break by spreading out purchases.

There are no plans for a SAVE 10 this year so the prices will not get better than this!

I hope this helps,

I'm not sure. I already bought 64 channels from someone (Art)

So at least 2 more, I was planning on 96 channels
But I may buy more to "save" for 2008

if you oder the PC-CTB16PC with the High Power Heatsinks would this board be rated at 30 amps then.

Correct. The above configuration would be 30 amps.

30 amps when being supplied from 2 seperate 15/20a circuits

40 amps I understand when supplied from 2 seperate 20a circuits with the CORRECT GAUGE FEED wire

I would always order the high power heat sinks
Better to have them & not need them....

Plus I still have 55a of C-9's :shock:

Which would be:

14 awg for 15 amp circuits
12 awg for 20 amp circuits

This was addressed today in http://planetchristmas.mywowbb.com/forum25/13875.html , but the two main reasons for the 30 amp rating of the CTB-16PC are the that it has smaller heatsinks than the CTB16D and that the plastic enclosure is not as efficient at dissipating heat as a metal enclosure.

This is correct. I would strongly discourage anyone from trying to push the CTB-16PC to 40amps.

I have another LOR user (and PC member) less than a mile from my house. While I know your kidding, just wanted to point out to anyone who might worry about this ... don't. Everything will work out just fine.

I have seen people use large rubbermaid tubs to house units instead of the smaller enclosures. That's actually what I was thinking of doing.
I have also seen people install fans in enclosures

Thanks for the clarification
