    Falcon F48 to 19" Patch Panel

    I come from an IT background. For my Falcon F48 setup I am considering connecting the 16 differential output ports to a 19" patch panel. Then I can have all the electronics (Falcon F48, Fan, Power Supply etc) in a waterproof box up out of the way (or concealed in a 4RU wall mound cabinet), and I...

    Which connectors for new display?

    I ended up deciding to use white cable/pigtails for 5v and black for 12V. It means if I ever run out or want to mix it up I still can. Thanks for everyone's input.

    Signal loss?

    Thanks AAH. I have just put together a volt ammeter inline with some ray wu pigtails so I can easily test the voltage now.

    Signal loss?

    In the garage it was working with a 50cm cable, same setup but swapped the 50cm cable to a 12m and the lights came on in a red/white stripe but it was static - not scrolling like I setup in xLights.

    Signal loss?

When I put the candy canes out in the front yard they lit up but none of the sequencing effects worked, I just had...

    Fan cover for enclosure

    I have just put together my first system in a waterproof box. I have cut a hole and installed a CPU fan for ventilation. I have seen a plastic part that goes on the outside to protect the hole from rain but now I can't for the life of me find one online! Can anyone tell me what they are called...

    Euro Connectors

    Just about to place my first order with Ray for some pixels! So many little bits to buy... Will I need to purchase "euro connectors" separately to connect the pigtails to the falcon controller OR does/can Ray supply these on the pigtail? If I do need to purchase them, where can I get them from?

    Which connectors for new display?

    I expect to use the majority 12V lights and so I think I will use xconnect for these. What would be a good option for a different connector for the 5V?

    Which connectors for new display?

    I have been researching for a while now. I have purchased an F16V3 and a Falcon F48 (with some smart receiver boards) to play with, along with a couple of meanwell power supplies. I am just about to purchase some 12V strings and 5V strips to play with (before I place a larger order for my...
