    New version of the 20W flood coming soon.
    It will replace the original 20W board as well as all Ren versions.
    What's new? Input can be set to use inverted or non-inverted signal.

    Also in the works is one channel 20W board, which can be used with white, UV, and IR LEDs.
    My goal is to have one universal board which will allow PWM control of white LED, on/off control of UV LED, and data (38kHz carrier) for IR LED.

    What kind of distance are people getting between floods when they are daisy chaining them. I'm thinking that for what I want to do that I may install a line driver in each case on the output side just as a safety net?

    Thanks. That's much better than I thought. I'll build them and test first.

    I was planning on running these 20w using cat5 cable like I do for regular pixels with a central power supply. What I'm not sure is how many I can run of cat5? Or if this is not a good idea how is everyone wiring these for power?

    I am using Ray's wires and T splitters, see here.
    If you use 4 wires for GND, 3 for V+, and one for signal, you should be able to power few of them, but the distance will be a factor here.
    Floods will work even if the voltage drops down to 20V or less and you can always adjust your 24V PS to output couple more volts.
