Bucket lights half on half off

Half of the bucket lights will come on and the other half on the same circuit will not come on. Are they daisy chained? if one bucket in the middle of the chain burns out will it effect the rest down the line?

    Thank... I think it is the A,B,C,D branch.... one light in the middle of the branch is out and the rest down the line are out... Almost like when a light in the middle of a string of christmas lights goes out...So goes the rest down the line... I will need to climb in the attic and see how the home biulder had the lights wired. Seems it could also be a loose N-wire... I started via checking the bulbs and that was not the issue. so the above statments seems to make sense...

    Yes you are right. You need to follow the circuit for broken link or element. Good luck with that.

If it is serial you have no chance if one of the lights fails the rest also fails. If you use a special type of daisy chain like A-B-C-D with B-E-F which has branched daisy chain you may help the brances survive and this is you are talking about I think. But here we have also A, if A fails here it makes the rest of the circuit fail. In fact this is a simple circuit problem if you know about them a little bit. Especially parallel and serial connections plays important role here. If you connect two branch in parallel even one of the branch's one light fails the other branch will survive, but here you need to be careful about voltages and currents also failing one branch can make other branch over-currented. Anyway, ask to an electrician if you don't know about this stuff very much.

Is Termination Necessary?


Usually, SCSI devices come with the termination built into the device. Older devices actually had two or three terminating resistor packs plugged into the card or drive circuit board. More modern ones have DIP switches to turn the termination on or off.
Essentially, on a SCSI daisy chain ribbon cable with multiple connectors, only the first and last physical device needs to be terminated. Usually SCSI devices come from the factory already terminated. If you have only one device to connect check and see if there is a DIP switch to change. I would go ahead and connect it. If it works, it's probably already set properly.
That said, I have worked with daisy chains of SCSI devices where a particular device would only work if it were terminated even if it was in the middle of the chain. s

I have a firebox and i need to connect two computers to it but it's giving many strange issues.if you can't connect two computers why does it have two firewire ports?


the two firewire ports are for daisy chaining.
you can connect another firebox to the one you already have so that you get more i/o.

definition:
 - A daisy chain is an interconnection of computer devices, peripherals, or network nodes in series, one after another. It is the computer equivalent of a series electrical circuit. In personal computing, examples of "daisy-chainable" interfaces include Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) and FireWire, which allow computers to communicate with peripheral hardware such as disk drives, tape drives, CD-ROM drives, printers, and scanners faster and more flexibly than previous interfaces. 

The main advantage of the daisy chain is its simplicity. Another advantage is scalability. The user can add more nodes anywhere along the chain, up to a certain maximum (16 in SCSI-2 or SCSI-3, for example). A daisy-chain network can be long in terms of the distance from one end to the other, but is not well suited to situations where nodes must be scattered all over a geographic region. In such a case, the cables must zig-zag around, and the overall length of the network can become huge compared with the actual distances between the nodes. This can cause the network to operate slowly for users near opposite ends of the chain.

Daisychaining subnets?


It is not recommended to daisy chain subnets because the flow of information is slowed as well as transfer of information But if done properly by using routers as well as correctly identifying the flow of information with the use of static routing then that is the correct way of daisy chaining subnets.

Bucket full light will not go off and unit will not operate (there is no water in the bucket).


The bucket full light is controlled by a manual 'float' switch in the bucket itself
-when the water level rises...it lifts the float ...turns on the light and does not allow the unit to operate because it believes it is full.

It is very common for the 'float' to gets misaligned, hung-up, etc. when you remove and re-insert the bucket. Sometimes the 'chain' gets twisted, turned...which does not allow the float to ...float...rather it is 'hung-up' which indicates it is 'full'...when in fact it is clearly not.

To check this:
  • remove bucket from unit
  • look into the top of the bucket opening to locate the 'float'...generally 2" round plastic ball on a shaft, (or chain)
  • softly cup the float in order to lift this up...with the unit stilll plugged in...to see if the light goes off...this is very likely
  • then be sure that the float mechanism is able to freely 'float' in the space....i.e. you are trying to simulate the impact of rising water levels in the bucket
  • as it rises (in your hand the machine will turn off/light on...as it drops....the light shuts off, allowing the machine to run (when humidity levels demand it)
  • then re-install the bucket....being very careful to lift the float, while you insert it...there is generally a little nack to it...but you quickly learn how to do it easily (I just reach into the space...cup the float...put the bucket on an angle...slide it in....release the float into the bucket...(remove hand)...then finish pushing the bucket into place
-hope this helps

Daisy-Chaining a HomeLink Phoneline Network


With a HomeLink card installed in your PC, connect your PC to a phone jack using a standard phone cable. Using another standard phone cable, connect the card's other phone cable port to connect to your second PC. Continue to connect up to twenty-five PCs in this way on one chain. If you want to use your telephone, modem, or fax machine, add a two-way splitter to your wall?s phone jack or connect the device to the empty phone jack in the last card at the end of your daisy chain. Daisy-chaining your HomeLink PCs and peripherals can create a simple network that acts in the same way an Ethernet network acts on your PC's desktop. In a HomeLink network, data passes into one side of a port, and continues out from the port?s other side. You can string up to 25 PCs on a single HomeLink network, provided that the entire length of cable does not exceed 150 meters (500 feet). HomeLink networks can send data through existing telephone lines without disrupting your telephone service. If you have PCs on two different floors of your house, plug one of the downstairs PCs into the phone jack in the wall, and you're able to network your PCs upstairs without running excessive amounts of extra cable.
