Don't get me wrong, I like the setup.
Curiosity is getting to me, and I really don't know the answer. 

What is the purpose of the DIN Rail units?

Hmmm....I didn't build this, but I would do same/similar to extend the pigtail length.

Whenever we used DIN rails, it was as a point to connect wiring that was coming in from all over the hospital.  Was quite handy for that function as we could rewire when necessary and not touch the actual cabling to the outer closets, it was well worth the time to put them in.

Since our DIYC controller enclosures have a pig-tail connection literally within a foot or two, is there a need for the DIN?  Of course, there may be other things going on here such as a buss (one in, many out).

I do have to say that the organization of this unit is quite well done.

For starters - you are using DIN rail terminal strips, and you used ferrules on each wire.  I'm impressed.

Noted however that it appears that output strips 12 - 16 are being used only as fused power outputs.  Nothing wrong with that - I have done it myself.  However I would have wired the data outputs to the terminal strips for those five outputs so it is already done WHEN (not if) you change something and need one or more of those five outputs.

I would have preferred not to use the double layer terminals (the yellow ones) as the bottom row (appears to be the pixel string power) would be hard to get to with the top row of wires in place.  However, you did not have much choice as you did not have physical room to use all single row terminals.

I could not entirely figure out your power distribution, or entirely what you are doing with strings.  Part of that is simply because the wires are bundled and I could not follow them.

Overall however - it looks very nice.

To algerdes thank you,the purpose of the DIN rail connectors is to have easy access and view of the fuses in case one blows..with the pigtails directly connected to the output it would be hidden..

LedMutt

To k6ccc thank you, power distribution is at the bottom layer, I know am wasting outputs, but this controller is only for a matrix..and am close to north Long Beach area..

I can see that.  Thanks for the explanation.

Since no one else knows what that was about, it is a response to part of a PM where I had commented about his house being very close to an In-N-Out.  I also have two close by, but both just over a mile away...
