Unusually for a 12v tape, every pixel on this tape is addressable giving the double benefits of high resolution animation effects and low current consumption. This 12V pixel tape offers higher reliability and thinner power cables when compared to a 5v competitor. Should a chip fail, its data line is automatically bypassed allowing the installation to continue operating normally. A high quality PCB reduces voltage drop and maintains even brightness along the whole length of the tape.
Digital tape needs a microprocessor to control it. We often use Arduino products and this excellent library from Adafruit https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_NeoPixel. We also offer a programming service. Please get in touch with us to discuss any requirements.
Supplied in 5 metre reels with an unrivalled 3 year guarantee.
What Driver do I need?
To work out what driver you will need for each length of LED you can simply multiply the wattage of the tape by the length of LED strip you will be using, this will give you the total wattage the LED strip requires, then simply choose a driver which is at least 10% above this figure.
