2021 Show Infrastructure

This page describes the infrastructure components for our 2021 Christmas show.

By infrastructure we mean the physical components needed to make the show work, including Controllers, A/C Power, Dongles, Network Switches, and Network Cables.

Controllers

Because most controllers need to be located near (typically less than 25 feet) the lights they control it is necessary to position them throughout the yard.

A/C Power

The controllers that are distributed throughout the yard are typically powered by A/C Power. That means we will need to distribute power throughout the yard.

Network Cables – While all of the networks in our show use CAT-5/CAT-6 cables, their purposes are not all the same.
