    Hey everyone, last year I had a bit of a play but only managed to get my setup to play in a test pattern. This year im looking at getting it one right. Below is a drawn image of what our plans are.

    The longest of the elements will be at a distance of 12m but this will have a psu at the base of each element.
    Ill be using security wire that's 6 core 14/020 with the power and one ground doubled up for voltage drop which shouldn't be an issue seeing as the furthest distance from a psu will be 5 meters?


    Whats below is -
    Elements
    1,2,3,4,5,6 - 5meter/12v/Rgb strip/39.3watt at 32 amps x 6 = 235 watts
    7 - 20 piece/12v/led module/14.4watt at 3.2 amps x 2.5 = 36 watts
    8 - 20 piece/12v/led module/14.4watt at 18.5 amps x 2 = 29 watts
    9, 10 - 100 node/12v/led/60watt at 3.2 amps x 2 = 120 watts
    11,12 - 3.8m/12v/Rgb strip/31watt at 3.2 amps x 2 = 62 watts

    Elements 1,2,4,5 - Will be run off the p12 controller 12vx400watt 33amp psu
    3,6,7 - Will be run off 12v 350watt 29amp psu
    8,9,10 - Will be run off 12v 400watt 33amp psu
    11,12 - Will be run off 12v 350watt 29 amp psu

    Is there anything that I may have possibly missed or worked out wrong? I'm looking at finalizing this by the weekend and get cracking with some more sequences but I thought Id throw it out there and see if I'm on the right track. Thanks for your help in advance, Daniel.
