Topic: 12v rgb led strip (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


Sorry I don't have that. It's simple enough to trace it if you have one to hand.


what may be the max current required for a rgb strip ?

i have 12v rgb strip but i dont have its manual, how can i know the current required for that strip ?

The Strip is divideable.
Every "3LED"-part takes 3x20mA per color.
A whole meter/inch/kilometer/lightyear takes the 2A.

EDIT: 5m take 2A :) It's written on your link.

On my commonanodestrip it's all 3 LED in series (per Strip)
every kathode (each color) has a corresponding resistor. (150/330/330).
If you dont divide the strips, every 3-led-strip is parallel.
So assume 60mA per element


if 3 led strip element takes 3*20=60mA. for 5m, 30LEDs/m strip will take
60*50=3A only. Is it right ?
