I would like to know if the pc16 card would be damaged if it had 120v back-feeding into a channel? if the channel is off.


I don't have the answer to your question, but I'd sure like to know WHY you'd want to wire it that way... seems you're using twice the resources that you need to. (two extension cords, two controller channels).

Sounds pretty risky to me.

Why would you want to do that? Knowing what you are trying to accomplish will give us possible other solutions for you.

well my plans have changed ,but the question still remains, if at any time power were to feedback would there be damage? the plans were to do a chase in the star field in the U.S. flag across and up and down, knowing that i would have to use diodes to limit feedback, but i did not want to have a dio fail and damage the system.

Sorry about the cruddy picture but i hope you understand the thought.

Thank you

I was thinking of using two diodes per lamp and a common ground. using just one side (1-8) of a controller (same power ) and a common ground for each light. so there would be three wires per bulb, 2 diodes 1 ground.

They say that electronics run on smoke. so don't let the smoke out
