    That is just the effect that I wanted for this year. Put me down for 10.

    cheers, fj
    a pdf would be great, im surprised the dont actually have one online to save you the time of scanning the pages

    I'd love to get a copy of that catalog PDF myself...
    It would surely provide the items I need to create a gorgeous display...

    sorry everyone, i've just been a bit busy lately and can't see it slowing up at all. i'm going to post the catalog out to someone else who will scan it up for you. will be a few more days yet.

    Hi, package arrived this morning, not long home and just had to play.

    Initial impression is build quality is good.

    Had to pull the little box apart that is on the cable, it contains a bridge rectifier so if you wish to run these from a AC SSR then they are full rectified.

    The bridge is a KBP210 a 1000v 2A unit that is no doubt used across all their voltage options.

    Powered up the pink/purple ones, what a great colour. That's as far as i have got, plan to measure voltages and count led's per section etc over the next few days.

    As always Left to Right.
    1. Bridge rectifier covered in what seems like some sort of hot melt glue.
    2. Took quite some effort to cut away and lever this up so i could get a model number.
    3. purple set powered up

    if i was going to use these with the rectifier in place i would undo the four screws and just run a bead of silicon around and screw the cover back to ensure it's completely waterproof.

    Cheers

    Quick update:
    Both strings i have are 10 leds per section with one resistor per section, this is definately better than the Big W strings.
    however....
    The red string when set for 200mA (10x.020mA) had an DC input voltage of 26.4 before the rectifier bridge whilst the purple string at 200mA only needed 22.1v and is drawing 250mA at 24v

    I'm keen to know what the green and blue strings work out at as theory say that for 10 leds they will need over 30v for 20mA/200mA, mmmm.....

    Cheers

    that was quick to get to you !!!

    good news about the build quality, average news about the voltages.

    looking forward to hearing more about your findings.


    cheers, fj

    I received my Lights and have done some peliminary testing with them and so far the results are very good.

    First Impressions are that the LEDS are well constructed and have built in resistors in the strings which I like.

    Powering the string (White one) from my variable power supply the voltage range appears to be very good. I can run them from anywhere from about 10V up to 37V with no apparent danger of damage. However when running at lower than about 15V some of the LED's appear to dim substantially compared to others at a dropoff point. This may show up when run from the Ren16 outputs. I will endevour to setup the ren-16 over the weekend and run some dimming tests with them.

    So far I am very impressed by them and would like to enquire how much they are as I may be interested in purchasing some later in the year.

    If compare them to my current favorite LED's that I use being the Mort-bay FX superbrite series they compare very well. The brightness is very good and the Build quality is good. A little dissapointed in the rapid dimming of some of the led's below 15V but I will feedback more once I have hooked them up to the Ren-16

    Thanks

    hi wombat,

    i will post up contact details of the supplier and how much i was quoted tonight. aususer has just sent me the scanned catalog too so i'll post that up as well.

    i just want to say a big thanks to yourself, aussiephil and aususer for helping me out on this !!

    cheers, fj
