New Kalkwasser Reactor & Lighting Problems
On other fronts, I downloaded all of the firmware for the RKE system and assembled the unit. The chain looks like this:
RKE Head --> PC4 --> ALC --> (Basement) PC4 --> SL1
I do not terminate with a SID unit since I will be programming and running the unit d=from the RKE head module. Everything went smoothly and powered up well. I fabricated a serial data cable by splicing the ALC SDO cable to a piece of AI data cable terminating in a small 3-connection jack.
It worked like a champ, running a program I placed in the Advanced light function but only one of the two AI Sol LED modules resonded to the signal. The second flickered, pulsed and finally went out, not able to start again. I contacted both AI and DA for help and will update how it all progresses. I knew things were going along too smoothly!
