E682- 16 outputs but only 12 universes

Last year I made my mega tree with 12 individual strands and hooked up each strand to an output on the e682.
The problem I'm having is that running it that way is a waste and is using 1 universe per port to only feed 50 pixels. That leaves me with 4 outputs on the e682 that can't be used (ports 13-16) correct?

Would I have to wire some of the strands together to maximize my channels per output? Something like 2 strands per output using zig zag so I have more flexibility to use the last 4 outputs of the e682.


I'm not a San Devices user, but this year on my F16v2 for my megatree I went to 4 strands of 60 on one output and it works fine.  This is two strings of 120 connected together.  Gave me half my ports back.  Then tried the same thing for my mini trees, arches, and flakes.  I tested them last month to see if they would work without doing any power injection and they did.  Now I have lots of spare ports for future expansion (don't tell my CFO).

Yep.  I built this tree two years ago when I was still learning and now I realize there's a much better way. The e682 doesn't give near the flexibility as Alphapix or Falcon.  Definitely getting a new controller next year.
