I have purchased several controllers from Dave. He is very good to deal with, I recommend him. His products are of the highest quality! And service is excellent.

Has anyone dealt with this company: chaselights.com they have this enclosure: Inside: 13.0"L x 9.4"W x 4.1"H

Looks to be the Primex P140 bigger than the P136 from allelectronics.




I've bought one of the cool high voltage mini light testers a few years ago (he doesn't carry them anymore, I think). He used to be a member here long, long ago.

Dave (chaselights.com) told me previously that he buys his enclosures from All Electronics. They are Primex boxes.

This is my first year trying an animated display.
I just finished building the LOR CTB-16D (16-channel kit form) and mounted it in a NEMA 3R 10x10x4 enclosure. I'm pretty happy with this project so far. I still need to run the LAN cable through a hole to finish the job. I have tested the controller and all channels are working properly. I also flashed the latest firmware to the controller.
The enclosure came from HERE for $20.75.
So far... so good :D

Nice wireing job, nice and neat, I have a wire orginization issue, you dont want to see the wires inside of my computer I built...

I dont want to have to order a box online so any boxes at home depot or lowes what works well? and do you need to provide your own hardware for mounting the card or does it come with some studs? (the 16 channle kit)

Ok, you guys might think I'm nuts but here's what I use after lots of searching and thinking. (Actually, I think it was my wife's idea, but I'm taking the credit)

I went to Home Depot and bought 3 plastic mailboxes. They are made to be pretty weather resistant, right? They ran about $5 or $6 each. They are big enough to hold the 16 channel boards, and I even got 2 boards inside one box. I mounted them onto 2 foot threaded bars and pounded them into the ground (not in that order) so that they could rest about 4 to 5 inches above the ground. I drilled holes in the bottom just big enough for all the wires to fit through. Funny enough, those round drill bits for cutting a doorknob hole are exactly the right size for 8 of the light-o-rama cords to go through with some room to spare for venting.

We've had LOTS of rain in the last few days, and I just came in from checking them and they are bone dry.

My wife even wrapped them with colored plastic and put a bow on them to make them look like presents under the tree.
