Description
 
This strand of "RGB Pixels" are digitally-controllable lights you can set each LED to any color, or animate.  Each RGB LED and controller chip is molded into a waterproof 'dot' of silicone at the base of the LED.  There are four flanges molded in so that you can 'push' them into a 12mm drill hole in any material up to 1.5mm/0.06" thick, great for outdoor signs!


Sold by the strand, each strand has 50 pixels in series!  Each pixels use an 8mm diffused RGB LEDs, with a 120 degree beam width.  The pixels are connected by a 4-conductor cable (+5V, ground, data and clock).  Data is shifted down from one pixel to the next so that you can easily cut the strand or extend it if you need more pixels.


Each strand has a male and female JST 4-pin connector, so it's easy to connect multiple strands together. 

The LEDs are controlled by the popular WS2801 constant current LED driver.  This chip only requires 2 control pins (data and clock), and the WS2801 cascades the bits down the strand.  Controlling this with an Arduino is easy, thanks to an awesome library written by Dianel Garcia that takes much of the guess work out of interfacing with the controller chip used by these LEDs.  The library includes sample code.

We have a number of 5V power supplies that can be used with these LEDs.

Please note:  The wiring colors may change during production runs, the easiest way to determine the pin out is to look closely at the circuit board on the base of the LED.  Never connect more than 5V DC to these LEDs, it will permanently damage the entire strand.
