Computerized Christmas Lights
« on: September 28, 2013, 08:42:18 AM »
  Well, after 2 months of waiting, i have FINALLY gotten confirmation on the shipment of the parts to build some more controllers for my Christmas display!
  This year I will be adding more channels, and going from 44 separately controlled electrical outlets to 76 this year. I still have to build and wire the boards, wire the electrical cords, and test them all. After I verify that I have all of them working, i will begin programming them to sequence my light display to music for the upcoming year.

  Who else has any electronics projects going on of any type? Surely somebody has something going.. Randy ??

   I am sending out the new posts as announcements in an effort to entice people into actually PARTICIPATING on the board! Everybody keeps telling me that it is dead and there is no activity, so there is no reason to check in and see whats happening.

  I am hoping that announcing that there are new messages may spark some interest...

   If nothing else, at least i am making an effort and trying

Here are the parts for the actual SSRs themselves. I will just have to solder them together, wire them up, and test them ..
