    Hi,
    Just wondering since everyone has been a wealth of knowledge for us in the past, what do we need to use to run rope lights for e.g our led lights are running through 48dc Channel controler, what do we need to run the rope lights on?

    To hook up standard 110V or 240V lights up you're going to need an AC controller and the only commercially available ones in common use are the light-o-rama ones like bbay linked to. On a cost per channel they are a lot more expensive than DC controllers and in some cases it is cheaper to replace the lights with low voltage ones rather than buy an AC controller.
