For big and complex projects these LEDs are much harder to install
LED Skipper all-in-one SPI+CLK Controller
This is a dual output slave controller.
It can simultaneously control two SPI+CLK LED strips.
It works as a slave device of The Admiral, which acts as the master controller.
This is the master controller, for the Ensign slaves
or for multiple Captain devices.
One Admiral device can control several hundred
of slave devices.
Our HD SPI+CLK LED strips
2 meters indoor HD LED strip
This 5V SPI+CLK LED strip can be cut every 7 mm.
It uses 144 LED/m to output a maximum of ~1000 lumens per meter.
You can chain these LED strips up to 5000 LEDs at 20+ FPS per controller output.
This strip exists in indoor version only or more precisely, we do not recommend using the outdoor version of theses strips, as they require a lot more connections (power and data every 2 meters) vs their DMX counterpart.
Connection between the LED strip and the controller is done through a standard JST 3 pin connector.
Power is sent through two 25 cm wires.
The best 5V power supply available
With 87% efficiency, active PFC, a 3 year warranty
and a MTBF of more than 30 years.
The Meanwell HSP-200-5 (200W) and HSP-300-5 (300W)
power supplies are the reference in 5V setups.
Their fanless design requires a large aluminium plate of 0.2m².
You have to carefully calculate the amount of power needed
by your LEDs following this formula (for 144 LED/m strips) :
power_needed_in_W = 35W x number_of_meters_of_strip x 1.2
