Hello, TIA for any help. Wondering what it would take to run the module for the set of wheel rings on a truck? I currently use the SP105E for my installs. But this would definitely be something awesome to try for some new features. Would a 12v to 5v step down be required? Would ws2811 strips work, or would it be best to use another style?
Pixelblaze will definitely work with WS2811 type LEDs, and can drive 12V LEDs, but yes you’ll want a 12->5V buck/step down converter to power Pixelblaze itself.
WS2815 are native 12V LEDs with more efficiency than WS2811 at 12V, plus they have a backup data line and can survive one LED going out without disrupting the rest of the strip.
Awesome! I’ll definitely give those a try. I really appreciate the help!
