🎄5V RGB Pixel Power Injection & Prop Build (2019) 🎄

I built a large 4’x16′ pixel matrix using Chroma Mesh from Boscoyo and 1,024 5V pixels. I show how to model this in xLights to get the wiring plan and I built is as a single string of lights using one controller connection. This requires a lot of power injection. but it’s pretty easy to do on a matrix.

Finishing up preps on the sticks, I encountered a perfect power injection example. I also created a cable snake for the line from the controller to the first pixel.

Falcon F-Amp RGB Pixel Data Signal Booster (2018)
