Thanks Martin,

Just want to make sure that credit goes where it is deserved. We supplied the lighting equipement and the software. The customer supplied the vision and set the display up completely on their own.

Awesome, Totally. I first read fast and thought 1300 lights, then realized channels. Now that must have been a wiring nightmare.

Wow... All LED's too, my head just exploded thinking of the $$'s involved there...

Sure would like to see it in person...

Oh Man!! I had planned to do they exact same display for my '08 show. Now I'm gonna seem like a copycat if I do it.

That was pretty impressive though....could you imagine the programming time for all that?? 450 hours????

Thanks for the post.

Go Fish has some great songs to put to lights


Agreed. We're using two of them (Little Drummer Boy and Joy to the World)

I built a 7 segment arch. Basicly it is PVC pipe, I used 50' light strings wrapped around the pipe to fill about 13" then the PVC can be straight/bent or whatever. I would LOVE to have the controllers to run a dozen arches or so. They are very cool.

Take a look at this one;

It's Stille Nacht by Manheim Steamroller. I actually did it with my display this year.

I was thinking about how to control 16 segment arches with the minimum number of controllers. Here is what I came up with.



The PRIMARY controller would generate the flash sequence of the 16 segments of all the arches. SECONDARY controllers would enable the arches.



This would require a sub-controller for each arch that would have a triac or relay for each segment of the arch. The triacs or relays would be controlled by the PRIMARY controller channels. The power to the arch would be supplied by the channels of the SECONDARY controllers to in effect, enable each arch.



There would be a 17 conductor cable (16 segments plus one common) that would string from the PRIMARY controller to each arch sub-controller. There would be a 2 conductor cable from one channel of a SECONDARY controller that would go to each arch sub-controller. The 16 segments of lights for an arch would plug into a sub-controller.





Attached is a simple block diagram to help with the description.



I would be interested in any feedback that anyone may have. I have not yet looked into the cost of building a sub-controller but it would definitely be a lot cheaper than buying a controller for each arch.



Merry Christmas to everyone.

P.S. – Thanks to Dan and crew for a fantastic product.

The "video" has many pictures on it as well, just use the right arrow.

Roger,

Start out saying..Why?

In your drawing your using 4 controllers to controll 2 arches. That is what it looks like, with the sequence controller, and the selection controller being used for all arches and the a sub controller for each arch. To me seems like your using 2 controllers for "control" that you could be using for arches. What happens if you would want all 16 arches to run at one time. Likely to overload your "sequence" controller.

Seems it would be a little easier on programming. But more costly to have 2 controllers that would not directly tied to lights.

Just my thoughts.

Chuck,

What I posted were my first thoughts. I only showed 2 arches but my intent was to be able to control 16 arches with 2 controllers. I was thinking about the light load today as well and have the same concern of overloading the controllers. There should not be a problem with overleading the sequence generator controller but the arch selector controller could be.

Now if the raw power for the arches is supplied straight from 110 VAC and not from the controllers then the controllers would be simply used to CONTROL the arches (low power) and not POWER them (high power).

I also want to look into the different types of boards that LOR supports. Maybe a digital IO board could be used to control solid state relays (SSRs) instead of LOR controllers for the arches.

Some more thought is needed.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Roger
