Spiral Christmas Tree Wiring Diagram & Directions

 

 

Figure 1

Use 4 (four) strings of lights to wire the wreathe. Each string may be up to 200 lights, e.g., 35, 50, 100, 135 (100+35), 150 (100+50), or 200 (100+100). Make sure you coil the extra wire between two connected strings so that the last bulb of the first string and the first bulb of the second string have the same spacing as the rest of the bulbs. This will eliminate gaps in the lighting.

The wiring diagram in Figure 1 should be used when a color change effect is desired. The tree size will determine how many lights per string are needed, and how many spiral loops around the tree are needed. A good rule of them would be one spiral loop per ring of branches. Use a different color for each string of lights, e.g., red, green, yellow, blue.  Start at the tree trunk and go outward to position 1. Proceed around the tree and advance upward one branch set per revolution until you reach the top of the tree. Start at the tree trunk with the second string of lights and go outward to position 2. Proceed around the tree as before to the tree top. Start at the tree trunk with the third string of lights and go outward to position 3. Proceed around the tree as before to the tree top. Start at the tree trunk with the fourth string of lights and go outward to position 4. Proceed around the tree as before to the tree top. Plug the top tree star and the DIGITAL LIGHT & SIGN CONTROLLER into an extension cord. Label the plugs with a number designation 1, 2, 3, 4 and plug them into the controller. Select RAMP 17 (for dual fade in fade out color change) and set brightness to maximum. Set the rate you wish for the color change. Try LIM 1 & 2 (for snap dual color change) and ANIM 6 (for single snap color change). RAMP 16 will change color by ramping a given color to full brightness, then ramping down to zero, shifting to the next color and ramping up again.

Remember, this is for fun!!! You can't hurt anything by playing around with different settings and combinations. Set the MODE, SPEED, and BRIGHTNESS, the way you like it. After running for one minute, it will permanently store the settings you chose and will operate that way every time you turn it on. You can change the settings anytime you like and it will remember the new settings. Have fun!!! And thank you for your purchase and your sense of curiousness.
