I come across problems regarding cabling distances in ws2812b strips. Can we breakdown these limits and how to overcome them if possible?
(Note: As a power source i usually use a mobile phone adaptor, 5v at 3.1amp.)
- 5v power source to microcontroller, Arduino.
Ideal max distance: I believe ideally this can be 2 meters... Not sure.
Extension: Im not sure how to extend this distance.
- microcontroller / arduino to ws2812b data line cable (and GND cable from arduino to ws2812b)
Ideal max : I believe data line cable to arduino is ideally kept at 1 meter max. From arduino to ws2812b strip.
Extension: Is it possible to extend this distance?
- power source to ws2812b 5v and Gnd lines.
Ideal max: 1 meter
Extension : Is it possible to extend this distance?
- powering ws2812b strips past 5 meters.
Im aware i should seperately power any line after 5 meters, directly from power source. Are there any guidelines on this?
