    Default 30W Floods

    I am ordering a dozen 36v - 30W WS2811 floods from Ray Wu. Is there a Falcon or other controller that I can directly power and control these units through running the 36V through the board. I am going to be running these in two sets of six floods.
    2016 - 5th. year - Over 18,000 channels E1.31 including 350 Channels Renard, Video Projection - XL/NC - On Falcon Player, up to four megatrees.
    2017 - 6th. year - Moved display to a public park, Over 45,000 E1.31 channels, down to 100 Channels of serial Renard - XLights running on Falcon Player on a raspberry PI.

    None of the controllers I am aware of will natively run on 36v.

    Wouldnt it be easiest to just power inject them? I have a bunch of the 20w 24v floods I power inject. Very happy with them. Plenty bright to wash a 20+ft tall wall on the side of my house

    You could also do this with one of Ron P's controllers. He supports POE so you could run 36v to a receiver. The receiver is designed to drop the voltage using a buck converter but if you don't add the buck converter then you can just use it as a receiver and pass the 36v. Because Ron's solution uses network cable, you would be limited to 3A. 2 30W floods would be under that limit.
