    that is a dumb rgb strip. all leds on the strip do the same thing. you use a 4 channel dcssr to drive the strip.


    2020 Full sized show reworked for the new location. Only adding (famous last words) 13 RBLs that I finally got converted to using pixels
    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show. Dim show (3000 pixels) had regular visits most nights.

    This is how they labeled the controller.RGBW controller 5 or 6 pin.JPG

    Oh I see, there are no addressable chips so the controller can only change colors. Well that's a deal breaker. Gotta go back.

    So here is another pixel conversion question. Just received this 300 count 16' strip that I want to cut in half and make two 8' strips. It's a WS2815 strip. Sems there are soled joints every 30 LEDs, so if I cut it do I need to stay with that pattern or does it matter on this type? I'm asking because I do not see reference marks where to cut like other products have. Here is a pic:New Strip.jpg

    They look cuttable on every pixel

    those copper pads between each pixel is your cut line

    Worked great. Now I have 2 eight foot sections of 150 leds to complete the outside vertical framing of my rambler.
