    SLC 5/05 runs a 240vac santa running / luna park animation, which isn't synced to music. Then there's the power distribution board, an FPP, stereo amplifier and 10/100 switch. The PC sitting there is just to monitor the FPP and also runs the projection onto my garage roller door.

    Looks good.
    As there's 240V in that enclosure it's a requirement that you have an earth connection to both the enclosure and the door.

    Looks like 30 24V outputs, question is what type of input do you use as I can't see this using E1.31?

    Interested to know how this talks directly to FPP software?

    This isn't actually connected to the FPP, it runs independently as its only an animation sequence. The entire program was written by me in RSLogix 500 using Ladder Logix, I can post some screenshots if you wish.


    There are 32 24vdc outputs which go to a number of relays which switches the 240vac
