    Default Diy quick connect waterproof connectors

    This is 1 of 3 e681's that I am using for my matrix .

    If you have a lot of pixel elements and reside in a wet location as I do ,

    having a method of quickly connecting is a plus .

    So you use cat5 to wire your pixels to the e682?

    Cat6 > stranded to controller and cat 6 >stranded to 3 core pixel wire at the matrix .

    all short runs .

    I wanted a fast way to connect as the screw together 3 and 4 pin waterproof connectors are bulky and time consuming .

    The cat6 wire is big enough for the power to the pixels, or am I really missing something? I am still pretty new and looking for different ways of wiring up my pixels.
