Helpful Content for Selecting Suitable Addressable LED Strip Light
1, DMX or SPI?
DMX (Digital Multiplex ) and SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface) are the most universal protocol for data communication in the lighting area. In this page we are introducing the DMX protocol catagory. From the biginning you can find its outstanding features. And we advise you select this DMX series of addressable LED Strip light for your large scale digital controlling applications, like architecture, event, entertainment, stage, and commercial space. For other relatively small scale digital addressable controlling lighting, we would advise the SPI catagory in other page.
2, Which is IC solution?
From the market, various of chip brands bring many types of DMX512 ICs. Based on years of experience, we have established the reliable and collaboration with UCS and Titian. UCS a leading company in the digital lighting IC industry. Their products features higher grey scale, higher refresh rate and other excellent performances. Titian company is also a welknown player in our main market and their products perform great at the competitive cost.
3, DC5V, 12V or DC24V?
The addressable LED strips are mostly designed with input voltage of DC5V, DC12V and DC24V. Elextricians and the led strip light practitioners know that it comes with 3 LEDs grouping a pixel for DC12V, while 6 LEDs proups for DC24V. This means, usually pixels no on DC12V led tape light is double on DC24V when there are same LED amount on each one meter led strip. Both DC12V and DC24V addressable led strip can run longer up to 5 meters a reel. Our proposal is up to the real requirements on the pixel density from the site. Take building facade digital light for instance, 24V 10pixels or 8 pixels a meter could be sufficient, because of far visual distance.
4, RGB or RGBW?
At Lineart Lighting, we focuse on the RGBW 4 in 1 leds and RGBW is the best. Obviously the reason is RGBW produce better white color hue over RGB version when all the channels R,G,B, W are all on. This lets you have greater control over the colour temperature and brightness of the white you are displaying; it also lets you create more accurate pastels and simply widens the colour range you can product with your lights. On the other hand, incorporating with up-to-date DMX IC solutionbillions gr, over 4 ey scale color can be realized. This is 256 times for RGBW over RGB leds. In the meanwhile, shortage for RGBW is more power consumption, but then once we can set a lower ratio wattage this shortage can be set off by sacrificing some brightness.
By the way we have mono white addressable led strip, and RGBAW addressable LED strip as well.
5, How Many Pixels per Meter?
Now lets talk about the number of pixels per meter. We have the product portfolio of 4pixel, 8pixels, 10pixel, 12pixels a meter on 12V and 20 pixels a meter 24V. With reference to DMX IC features, there is limited space to mount more ICs on the 10mm or 12mm width one meter long pcbs. Whereas in the large scale dmx controlling system, 10 or 12 pixels a meter would be sufficient. Read oore about Pixel Basic
6, White PCB or Black PCB?
White PCB is our default supply, wihle we have black pcb available for the certain items, just take a view and clairify it before you confirm the purchaing. We suggest, select the black the pcb tape light in a dark space for the purpose to prevent external light reflection and conceal the light strips. Apart from this consideration, white pcb is preferred as it reflect some light.
7, What Can Be Customized?
In short, we customize everything for demand. They include PCB layouts design with different IC solution and, custom logo printing on pcb, input voltage, led chip brand, waterproof finish and other configuration etc.
