Dan,

The control boxes are connected together with cat5 cable. The heatsinks are used because the triacs get real hot and need a way to dissipate the heat. For all the info you would ever want, go to http://www.lightorama.com. Here you will find the answer to a lot of your questions.

Good Luck! and welcome to this wonderful hobby!

Dan, the heatsinks are like fins on a motorcycle engine. To disipate heat.

I would suggest taking some time to read the LOR forum from the beginning. There are a bunch of answered questions on there.
