April Sale

Recommended Posts

Guest guest

James,

I asked the same question a while back, here is the response. It is also explained in the assembly manual posted on line. Denny

This kit contains the light duty heatsinks. They limit the total current carrying capability of the controller to 15 amps. 7.5 amps for each of the two 8-channel banks. If you opted to purchase the regular heatsinks, then the full 40 amp current carrying capacity of the controller can be used. 20 amps for each of the two 8-channel banks.





[align=left]If you opted to purchase the CTB-16K Deluxe Upgrade Kit your controller will also include unit id selection switches, a speed control and the ability to run stand-alone sequences. Stand-alone support means that the controller can be downloaded with an animation sequence that it can run on its own. This stand-alone sequence can control the channels on this controller as well as other controllers connected to it."[/align]

I'm excited about the Light-o-Rama sale, as I plan to start working with this exciting technology. I hope LOR is prepared for a barrage of orders in a week.

Question: How long (estimate) will shipping take if I placed an order when the sale begins? I realize that, since a huge # of orders will probably be placed, shipping might take a longer period of time.

Dan:



Let's make sure I have everything I need...



1 -- Show Director MP3 Player --- $500

1 -- SPK-ST Outdoor Showtime Starter Package -- $80

-- includes SC485 Serial Connector

-- Light-O-Rama Software

-- 10ft CAT5e Cable (what does this do?)



So my investment so far would be $580 + shipping?



I'm reading the "Industrial Computerized Lighting Setup" (http://www.lightorama.com/LOR_Industrial.html) and Step 1 says "You design and build your show using the ShowTime software on your Windows PC and then transfer it to an SD memory card." How do I transfer my shows to the SD memory card? Is this a gizmo that is included in the Show Director MP3 Player?



Thanks for your help in advance!



Paul

Kingston makes a USB SD card reader/writer. It looks like a flash drive, but you put a SD card in it. It is called the TravelLite SD/MMC Reader. You can get them from places like CDW.COM. Any of the electronics chains (Best Buy, Circuit City, etc) probably carry something similar.

I thought Dan posted somewhere that a small card reader would be included. This would let you get the shows from your computer to SD card.

The CAT5 cable is included in the starter pack. Running the showtime version with SD card, you are probably not going to need it.

You would download them to the card through the Cat5 cable.

We still have some things to do on the website to get ready for the sale announcement. For example, documentation for the new products has to be linked in.

Better get that second server going too in preparation for the flood of web site hits!

Question: How long (estimate) will shipping take if [...]

What's up with all these questions about how long it will take to ship? Shipping takes a few days. With the expectation of increased orders during the sale it may take an extra day or 2. How do I know this? Because I've read numerous posts in the past thanking Dan for the quick shipping. Can everyone please stop asking the same nit picky questions about shipping?

This is what Dan said when I asked him the question under Newbie Questions:



"The Director Card w MP3 Player will come with an SD card and a USB connected Card writer. The Card is 128mb which is big enough for about 30 standard musical sequences and their MP3 files."
