    A custom firmware could be written to make it fire only once every 3s or so. If you don't want the random function then you could just use a standard 1W led and driver attached to a DC dimmer channel.

    Are these ACL strobes and are you running them as a string of the typical 50? If you're running just 1 or 2 then a single flash once every 3s or so will be pretty uninspiring :(

    I am only using 1 acl tpr1 strobe but that is connected to fibre optic loom but I need it to flash once every 3 or 4 seconds. Then once that works i can add.

    The program is simple but it's actually a busy time of the year for Xmas lighting surprisingly enough :D
    I may not get anything done but there's expected to be 2 days of torrential rain here so I may have some downtime.
    Do you want a fixed 3s time interval with a short flash and if so how short a flash as there's about 7 or 8 different intervals used on current firmware.

    Hi yes I appreciate it's very busy time of year and appreciate any help you can give.
    I'm thinking a 1sec flash and 3or 4 secs off should do it

    I haven't forgotten about you but I haven't had a chance to even look at it.
    My lights are still not even remotely close to being all up or connected yet. So far 1/2 my pixels are running off pixel testers and the other half aren't connected.
