Does anyone have experience with any non-DMX rope light chasers? Any suggestions or tips?
OK they are VEI red rope lights, 4 circuit. 110w. I think I need a VEI controller but I can't find one for 110V lights, only 240V (which I do not have obviously).
First of, shame on BillESC for selling you the rope light without a controller (or maybe you should have asked for one when you bought the ropelight?)
I wasn't initially planning on the chase effect. One of my actors (yay them) was insistent on doing the chase after I purchased them.
We have trouble plugging even regular lights into dimmers, not to mention the fact that we're limited in terms of number of (working) plugs. I wanted them to go right into a wall outlet. It's more reliable and easier for our situation.
I just came across this thread, and yes I realize it's over a month old now, but I have a question for icewolf.Second, it really helps to do some research before you buy things, even from friends. I wouldn't have purchased rope light that needs a controller as there is plenty that is readily available that you can plug right into a dimmer and run from your light board, but you did, so I suppose cest la vie.
