    Hello again

    Sorry about the double post I'm full of questions today. Alright so heres the deal:

    We are renting 16 Morpheus S3 color scrollers to use in source fours. We have 3 different pipes that will have the scrollers on them and there will be a power supply on each pipe. Each power supply can only power and send data to 6 scrollers. Now heres the question- Can the power supplies be daisy chained together for data. For example can I take the DMX cable from the board and plug it in to the power supply and then have one output for the 6 scrollers and another output for the next power supply. I ask because it would be really annoying to have to use 3 universes just for color scrollers.

    Just incase you are wondering.... and to make sure you don't do this. You can not run DMX into the PSU, then power/data to the scrollers, then the power data back to the next PSU. You need DMX to go to each PSU then from the PSU's to the scrollers. Nearly every DMX device out there has a DMX through, so no worries there.

    Very insightful post, Footer. The experienced technician can certainly see potential problems/issues before they happen, and this forum is a prime example of watching your brother's back.

    Nice save-
