    @MagicJ - Are we close? I really need to be able to dim my lights - I suspect when I add coral and "blast" it the coral's ain't liking it.

    @The Reefuge - Any chance of a :poke ecomotion?

    Bump :)

    How's this project going. After running my 2x Typhoon controllers I want to replace them already. Lack of so many features that yours has and having to reset the time on them every couple of days due to time creep. It's driving me nuts.

    Happy to provide funding for what you have got running at present, so I can sell my current controllers.

    @macca_75 is probably the best one to respond at this stage. Mine is just sitting 'loose' on the bench next to my algae culture area :rolleyes

    I basically used one of these

    http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=HB6012

    @Rob helped me print of a custom lid for it. Mine is a little different in I used 6 x CAT5 connectors (using something like http://www.l-com.com/ethernet-panel...own-connectors-secure-mounting-to-rack-panels)
    and connected 1 CAT5 cable (GND + 5 channels) to each of my six Lumina 5.1 LED's.

    Hope that makes sense.

    I can send to you 3D CAD file if you like for the lid - you will need to modify it to suit whatever connector you use.

    To mount the PCB boards inside the jiffy, I super glued some plastic standoffs and screwed into them. The custom lid has somewhere for the screen to screw into.
