    I am planning to replace our Lehigh Millenium board with a new ETC Express 48/96. however when reading the manual i see ETC does not use pins 4 or 5 of the connector. Lehigh used these to send an overheat signal from the dimmers to the board. when i hook up the express should i disconnect the wiring to those pins, or will it cause no harm?

    You should be just fine, there's no need to disconnect those pins 8)

    There should be no need to disconnect them. pins 4 &5 are for reporting only--some systems do it and some do not and there usually is no interference or problem.

    Yeah, no need to do any rewiring, just plug it in.

    Depending on what the signal coming back is. (DMX or just a voltage?) you may want to make up and interface to an idiot light on the wall to dislay the overheat signal . . . . if you have it, why not use it?
