Hi, sorry if this is a dumb question but just trying to start this year from ordinary lights to programmable ws2811, and i've spent many hours trying to learn, but still have questions.

I've purchased a F48 with 4 x 4 string differential boards, which i plan to use for a 16 string x 100 pixel ws2811 (12v).

I've read that each pixel is .66 watts each, so my numbers say that 4 strings of 100 pixels attached to each board would be 264 watts at 22 amps. I read that the differential board can take 30 amps,

So my question is if i attach a 30A (12v) power supply to the board, will it be able to run all 4 strings of 100 pixels without me needing to inject power?

And that would mean that i would need 4 x 30A power supply's to power my 16 string mega tree?

I would appreciate any advice,

Thanks, Michael
