I've been looking around for a while now and I can't find any sure answers, so hopefully somebody here can help me out. I want to try out RGB strips this year and I can't seem to wrap my head around how its done. All my experience in this hobby (last year) came from a Ren SS8, and so Renard boards with separate SSR's are a bit abve my head. What i THINK i'm supposed to do, is get a controller, a DCSSR and use 3 channels to control each strip? If thats right, the boards I was looking at were the Simple Renard 32 and the DCSSR 2.4.
Will these work together?
How many channels does one RGB strip need? 3?
From what i read this SSR provides constant positive so i would need a common anode RGB strip. Is that correct?
I need to control 2 strips about 50 ft each, will this be too much current for the SSR?
Can i also control DIYC floods with this board?
As of now, 2 RGB strips and 2 DIYC floods are the only planned DC display items i have. Can i control AC SSR's from the same Renard Board?
I probably have more questions and will post them as i remember. I also wasn't quite sure on how to control RGB in vixen, or if you even can, but maybe thats question belongs in the vixen forum. Besides I'm more concerned with getting hardware figured out first.
Thanks in advance everyone
