    Hi All. I just have a quick obstacle I have to overcome and was hoping for a quick answer.


    I will attach my diagram on what I have. These are WS2811 12v strips. The layout is where the 80px strip ends from the right PSU/Controller it then starts the 75px strip from the left PSU/Controller. The 80px strip needs power injection at the end. The 80px strip is actually an 11px <-(18awg wire to turn 90deg)-> 58px <-(18awg wire to turn 90deg)-> 11px. The cable coming from Controller to the Strips are 4 core cables.


    My idea is this:


    Change the 80px strip to be -


    right e6804 <-(V+, Data, Ground)-> 11px <-( V+, Data, Ground)-> 58px <-(Data, Ground Only)-> 11px <-(V+ from left PSU using extra wire going in 4 core cable, Ground connected to both 80px and 75px strips)


    Will this work?

    Anyone? I have to weather proof my strips tonight and was hoping to make sure I have read everything in the ACL correctly
