Animated Wire Frames

Recommended Posts

I was playing around with LOR trying to control my Halloween displays and on one of my Wire Frames (a 5' tree with moving arms) there is two plugs. One for the lights and one for the motor. I connected each to its own LOR channel.

Lights are controlled fine, but the Channel that controlls the motor wont drive it. I have checked out the LOR channel and the motor seperately. All is fine. The motor is less than 3amps.

I haven't tried it on my Christmas wireframes yet, but was hoping to do the same control for my Christmas wire frames as well.

Has anyone else ever had a problem with LOR controlling the wire frame motors?

Most guys just leave the motor running and just control the lights with lor. No sense in using a lor channel for the motor. It can't be seen when the lights are off anyway.

If you just have the "on" it should work (no shimmer,fade,etc). But what I do is hook up the lights to LOR and just have the motors plugged into a regular extension cord. I usually put all the moving parts of my display on a timer.

LOR is for "Incandescent light only", for now anyway. If you want to control the motor, you would have to use x10, and then control it with LOR.
