This month the Colorado Christmas Enthusiast will be meeting on Saturday,  April 28 from 0900 to 1700 at the South Metro Fire Rescue Administration Building located at 9195 East Mineral Avenue; Centennial, CO 80112. I believe we will be in the lower level, but check the monitor by the front door to make sure as there is quite a bit of construction going on that may cause us to change rooms.

I believe we still have a few that may want to present their 2017 display and talk about success and areas for improvement.

Doug Reel will also be leading a discussion around setting up universes and start channel addressing.

As always, bring any questions and issues you need help with. Feel free to bring any for sale and trade items.

Look forward to seeing everyone.

Update. Unfortunately I did not get it working but did contact David Pitts and he is taking care of me. All I can say is David's support is next to none and he stands behind his products. Kudos to you David!

Hi Dan,

Everything seems to be working great when I run a sequence in standalone mode. So thank you so much for helping me out!

I'm in the minority I can see... I love the larger power supplies myself.  I have 4 of the Meanwell RSP3000-12 in my display.  Three of them running in parallel for 600a @ 12v. If one fails I can limp by with two and I keep a spare on hand.  I was tired of the cluster of CG1500's and 320w psus.  Pros and cons to large power supplies.

I put both connectors on all 16 of my trees so that I can place them without regard to which ones had the output connection or not.  I try to build all my props (with multiples) so that they are interchangeable like mini trees, snowflakes, arches, etc.  Makes it much easier when putting the display up to not have to worry about which tree goes in a particular location.

F16V3 Pixel Controller / Re: F16V3 ..What gauge of wire?

Yes,from the PS to the Boards. Just wanted to make sure that 12GA would be ok.

Are you referring to the wires from the Power Supplies to the Board?  I use 12 ga. solid copper (leftover from some shop wiring I had done a few years ago).

I messed up something. The blue channels work.

Everything seems to be ok in display testing. But in bridge mode it's still not 100%. Probably not related to the BBB part. I'll post some pictures later this evening for you.

F16V3 Pixel Controller / F16V3 ..What gauge of wire?
« Last post by Kev7274 on April 23, 2018, 02:57:03 PM »
About to start the build and I was wondering what you guys were using for wire. I run 12v pixels if that matters.
I was going to use 10 gauge solid,but my local home improvement stores don't sell it,they only have 12 gauge stranded.

Any good places on line to purchase from?
