The strip used is just individual controlled LED strip which comes in different LED/IC counts and different IC types, so below there is a link to 3 types available that are all 5vdc and have 8 bit dimming.DannyP said:Hi guys can you tell me which type / brand of strip this is?
I want to jump in and make the recommendation that folks use RGB strips that are inside the silicone tubing.DannyP said:Thanks for the info guys. With the strips, would you suggest the ones with the silicon coating or silicone tube? I think they are both IP 65 but do you have any views on which ones would stand up to the sun and rain better? Also on Rays website he has flexible neon lights. I am thinking of using this for an outline on a sleigh I am making. Any experience or info with this product?
angus40 said:this strip is tls 3001 not the cheapest , but i would say they are definitely worth the extra cost .
The colors are spot on I have the tls 3001 strings also and they look perfect side by side.
as Eddy suggests there is others to choose from , i would think twice about the 60/per meter if running full strips, those are current suckers you will need power injection at every turn with them.
also these strips i am using are 5v, power injection is of concern here also .
However I will be cutting them up so i won't have much worry.
i think this type of strip ,no matter which ic you choose is perfect for a matrix . the pixels are nice and close together and individually controllable.
when i get so time i will create a small matrix with them to scroll text and see how they work out.
