Hi all,

I was interested in LOR about a year ago and was fairly sure about everything then i lost interest. This time i think i'm back into it.

So i live in Australia and i'm going to get a sparky to wire everything up for me unless i am very sure of what i'm doing.

http://store.lightorama.com/ctcotrbowihe.html so if i get this ( TB16DWHS) does it come with the heat sinks already installed/ or it come with them?

So if i purchase two i can connect the two units together and each one can go in a plastic container? or do they get hot and need to go into something stronger/ more heat resistant?

I have also heard of the idea from someone on the Aussie LOR group that uses Power boards ( http://www.acalimited.com.au/images/cable4.jpg) instead of seperate cords to attach to the unit to plug the lights into. I might need an aussie to answer this question but do the actual power boards pull much electricity and can i connect multiple powerboards together ( we can only fit two transformers per power board.. Bloody transformers)

To connect the RJ45 cable to the computer i would need one of these

* Got a bit confused, the LOR unit takes RJ45 network cables right? or is it phone cables?

Thanks for reading! hopefully i can get everything sorted out and get LOR soon.

I can't answer all of your questions, but I'll jump in a bit:

If you order it with the high power heatsinks they will come installed by the factory.

That depends on where the units will be located and the current draw of your display. In general they should be securely mounted in an enclosure with standoffs.

Cheers

So basically the CTB16PC has to connect to a computer and can't connect to a MP3 director? It also can only take a maximum of 30 amps.

I also just noticed while looking at options on the http://store.lightorama.com/caasaop.html they have Australian cordsets?


Incorrect. The CTB16PC can be controlled byt the MP3 Director. It cannot be used as standalone. Standalone is a mode in which an animation sequence is downloaded into the controller memory.

Yes it is limited to 30 AMPS primarily because of it being in the plastice case.
