  4. From the album: Aabeck's album

    My house display for 2017 Christmas. The outside lights and living room window lights are controlled by an Allen Bradley SLC5/04 PLC. The door wreath is controlled by a Siemens S2-200 PLC, with the power to it controlled by the living room SLC5/04. Most of the light strings have been cut into 10 bulb sections to run on 24 volts DC provided by separate power supplies. The flickering candles in the kitchen window are 4 volt bulbs wired to a TTL transistor logic card, and each of the 7 is controlled with it's own subroutine. TO get 4 volts I have a 5 volt power supply run through a potentiometer to reduce the voltage to 3.7 volts - it is easier on the bulbs and makes them a little dimmer than full brightness so they appear more like candles. The kitchen window is controlled by a SLC5/03 PLC, and another SLC5/03 controls the tree that I put out in the side yard this year. The PLC's are synced with messaging by a home control SLC5/05 in my home office, through NET-ENI's. A network COM port on the tree PLC is messaged to through a data-subscriber on the HMI. All features (along with the home controls, monitoring and alarms) are controllable and adjustable by a computer and a Windows tablet both running AdvancedHMI.

  7. 2016 Christmas Display. 30,000 lights
  8. This is the inside version of our Christmas Spectacular 2016. We never get snow, but often get rain in the winter and since this was the first season presenting our display, we wanted to protect our investment. So, I created an inside version to entertain party guests in our home. I hope you'll enjoy. This wasn't the exact set up (so I do apologize). This was from the first tech testing in November 2016. I do not own the music to this video. This is for educational purposes only.
  9. From the album: Aabeck's album

    Update of the shooting star in my LR window for Christmas. I added a few more modes. This is run on an Allen Bradley SLC5/05 and controlled by 2 PC's and a Windows10 tablet running AdvancedHMI. Sorry about the focus, but the camera couldn't keep it's focus range on the flashing lights.

  10. From the album: Aabeck's album

    Here's a .AVI version I had created because neither of the MP4 uploads would play. This runs on an Allen Bradley SLC503 that I upgraded from a 7 slot rack to a 10 slot rack & added a 120V output card to control the 12V power supply, tree top and the white lights on the pre-lit tree. It's controlled by 2 PC's and a Windows10 tablet running AdvancedHMI through a Ethernet serial port through a WiFi access point. Unfortunately the camera had a difficult time focusing on the flashing lights, but even though some is out of focus the patterns still show.

  17. This weekend at Garden Ridge I saw a 20' Inflatable Snowman, he was awesome. In my mind cme the quote from Wayne's World, "You will be mine, oh yes, you will be mine." My wife's quote came louder and clearer as I stood at the base gazing heavenward at the bohemouth of Christmas decor, "You have absolutely no where to put this." Lucky for me I developed a serious and very painful neck injury. So much so that my wife softened up and suggested that we buy the 20' Christmas yard monument to lift my spirits, which it did. I love my wife. Purchased 20' Inflatable Snowman from Garden Ridge. He is HUGE! Of course we had to blow him up in the driveway just to make sure he is in good shape. It took a while to blow him up since it was 2 minutes before we noticed the hose was twisted shut and then even longer to realize the blower wasn't positioned right.

    Wow Factor!

    I'm a newbie and I gotta say that this forum and all you vets are AWESOME! There have been many great ideas and help here. Anyways, I'm trying to go for the WOW factor with my lights this year. My displays have always been pretty simple with just some mini-lights and icicle lights. I'm in the process of making some mini arches too! My question is this. I have $100 to spend on my Christmas display and was wondering what to buy to give it a little more WOW! Like I said, I just have mini-lights, icicle lights and I'm building the arches. Thanks guys! Brady
