How to run (and power) 40 16' LED strips with a single controller? Answered
I am working in a room with an exposed beam ceiling. I am planning on running 16' strips of 12v RGB 5050 (150 LED) up each rafter. So in total I will end up with around 40 strips. Each strip is listed to consume ~36w. Tons of info on the net about controlling and powering 2-4 strips at a time. But 40? I'm having trouble drawing out how to power the strips (power supplies + amplifiers) at the same time being able to control them from a single controller. (A simple generic controller that has selectable colors/ blinking/ etc) Is is possible to control all these with a single RGB controller?
I would love to get into a DMX setup. But all the DMX controllers I've seen only show controlling a grid of 300 LED's. Is there anything remotely feasible for a home setup that could control 6000 LEDs?
