Hey all! This looks like a very helpful place, so since I just ordered a full PB setup with an output and sensor expander I wanted to check on something.
I’m building a project that right now has 8 channels (though it might need a few more in the future.) Two of those channels have 203 SK6812 RGBW pixels, two have 59, and four are running 60 LED RGBW Adafruit Neopixel Rings. Grand total of 764 pixels.
Now, I’m not the most technical person, but I’m thinking that my 5V40A power supply should be sufficient if I’m not running them all at full brightness, but I wanted to check on the individual channels. I see that the expander has an amperage limit of 3A, but it should be fine if I’m powering them separately, correct?
I also see that I can power the PB off the 5V going into the strips, but is there a best practice for that?
Super excited to receive my kit and start making awesome animations with you all!
