Hey guys! I have just bought 20M of some cheap ebay LED's. It cost about £30 and I thought was worth it. I havent tried them yet, but I was wondering. Are there two different names for these LED's; ( both RGB )
The top image is where each LED is stuck to Red, Next one Green, Next Blue. I was aiming for each 1 led has 3 in it, so each single LED can be green+blue, or just red, or all, Instead of 3 at a time coming on to force me to use aluminium channel.
The bottom image is the one I wanted. Each LED could be individual and had 3 actual colours in it, to make a smooth blend. I havent actually tried them yet, but from my reel, I can see that you may only cut the led per 3 LED's, So,
O = LED
| = Place to cut
- = LED strip
--|-O-O-O-|-- ( Each O stuck to one colour, Red, Green, Blue )
That in a continuous pattern, for 5M per my 4 roles. please give me a seperate name to define these differences, I dont want to make this mistake again.
(The ones I aimed for, using the same key;)
--|-O-|-- ( One LED has 3 in one, red, green, blue, to prevent a pattern ish ugly thing. )
Sorry if this is in the wrong place, it seemed like the best place
Please help me, Because it also may help some other people in the future!
P.S. Can anyone recommend me some cheap 45* angled aluminium channel?
