Help with powering chained LED strips? Answered
It's been about 30 years since I had any formal training in wiring circuits, so excuse my ignorance. I am trying to chain a couple of addressable LED strips. The strips have the following requirements:
Power consumption: 10W/M
So it's 50W for the length of one 5m strip. I'm considering chaining two or more strips together. The data chain can be as long as it needs to be, but the the manufacturer recommends powering strips every 5m.
Let's say I have a 5v 60A (300W) DC power supply. Can I run multiple strips (I guess up to six 5m strips) with this wired in parallel, or do I need to worry about putting resistors in to keep it from overloading the strips?
Here's a quick sketch diagram
