The central panel adds dimming to the overhead. I bought some cheap dimmers to get use of their electronics. Now one of them is controlling the backlighting of the complete overhead panel. The plan is to split the output of the dimmer into different power plugs and connect these with power plugs of the different backlighting panels.
So every panel segment stays modular and can be disconnected from the electronics by pulling one power connector and some D-sub connectors.
