Hi Everyone,

Well decided to jump into the pixel world and ordered some from Ray. Have a 2801 strip and the decoder.
I have attached a couple pictures. I am not sure what wire to connect to what terminal. I understand that
this strip may have the data and clock wires reversed but not sure what goes on the "LAT" terminal.
The instructions that Ray sent me has the terminal "NC" listed in place of the "LAT" terminal.
I know the power supply goes on DC+ & DC- but do not want to connect to wrong terminals.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Ed

I would check to make sure you actually get the correct voltage between the +v and the -V as i would hope to think that the ground and the -V are the same potential

As far as the LAT i would not worry about that connection as its not used.

Thanks for all the replies guys!

Have since got the strip up and running with xlights, now have to try LOR S3.
