Trying to get my head around wire gauges etc...
What size wire should I run between PSU's and F16V3?
I have a roll of this laying around, would it be adequate?
Seems like a dumb question, but just want to confirm before i wire my pigtails into the controller...
Working out which wire is which, is is safe to assume that the order they go into the pigtail plug is the order they are on the actual plug prongs? e.g. below.
Hope that makes sense.
Bought a bunch of stuff from Ray Wu 26/9. AliExpress says it will automatically cancel the order if not shipped by 14/10 and it hasn't been shipped yet.
Understand they are probably flat out, is this delay normal for this time of year?
Great, thanks guys.
I'm using 12v pixels. The box will be pretty close to the tree and I've ordered strings with 2m pigtails on them.
Am I correct in thinking, if each string is 5.5A at full load, that one side of the F16 will be ~22A at full load (4x 100 pixels outputs - half the tree) and...
Power rookie here.
I'm planning a 16x50 tree with a 100x pixel star on top.
I've mapped out my power plan below, will this work? I've got no idea about amps etc.
1) Is 1x 240v cable ok to power both PSU's?
2) What wire should i use between PSU's and the F16V3?
Awesome, thanks for the advice.
OK I'll go with 2x PSU's. Before I commit, is this the correct PSU? https://www.arrow.com/en/products/lrs-350-12/mean-well-enterprises
I'll probably source topper from BooY and just find a way to make it work off the verandah.
After my 3yo saw a mega tree on youtube and asked me to make her one, I couldn't say no. So I have embarked on a 3 day crash course and come up with the rough plan below to try and get it done in time for December - I'm keen to hear if you think I'm on the right track.
Thanks mate, have started working my way through the guide tonight.
Im not 100% confident with electrics and I'm keen to shortcut to save a bit of time (im very time poor), so a pre-made controller is my preference. would this one do the trick? https://www.advateklights.com/pixlite-4-mk2-rugged
Have been watching for a couple of years but keen to make a simple pixel tree this year as a start. Pretty time poor so trying to work out the quickest, easiest solution, would a pre made package like this be a good start...
