Just finished the first of two Halloween shows for this year. Even with the cold temps and 26+ mph wind it looked good. Best part was my new 8-relay DMX pack worked perfectly (see photos).

Next show is Friday, should be fun.

I built the relay pack to control the items in my display that were either DC or couldn't be dimmed (I already had 16 channels of dimming).

The relay pack is controlled via DMX. Each relay is rated for 5A. In the photo its wired for two 120V outputs and one DC. For the show this year I had a UV fixture, and strobes at 120V and a wiper motor at 9V.

The nice thing about relays is any of the 8 relays can control any voltage.
