I'm just doing a thought experiment, for a project that who knows when it may come back. But it did get me thinking about a few things:
I have an architectural project, where we were looking to do all of the lighting control for the interior space.
Early Spitballing indicates, we're looking at around 48 Dimmed circuits, about 24 Relays for smart fixtures, and 16 Constant Circuits.
The Venue isn't a theater, so we won't be changing out fixtures or repatching. So a Sensor 3 with TPSR isn't necessary.
Because of the fluid nature before we've locked down circuits etc, I was designing assuming we had a 48 Slot Sensor 3, and we just slot what modules we want.
However, because it's going to be permanent, I was starting to wonder if there were pros to getting a 24 Slot Sensor 3, and a 48 Sensor IQ, to handle the Relays and the Constant On.
So at present here's my thoughts, which i would welcome comment or critique of:
There seems to be some back and forth, so I'm a bit perplexed. Plust I'm not certain I'm missing something.
Since your driving the system with DMX anyway, why not just use an echo panel and save even more money? The cost savings will help mitigate the cost of the feeder distribution between the two panels.
mmm but I don't think an Echo Mains feed can house all the breakers i Need. At present I need about 48 Dimmers and 48 Relays, constant blanks
An Echo Mains feed doesn't have enough space.
