Create an Arduino Controllable LED Light Display! This is a string of 10 Individually Addressable RGB LEDs! Each LED Pixel contains a WS2801 chip to allow it to be controlled individually! These RGB LED Strings are easy to daisy chain to give longer lengths. They can also be cut anywhere along the length of the string for shorter portions! With 4 Wires coming in/out of each LED Pixel, just wire up Red to 5V, Blue to Ground(0V), Green to Serial Clock (Clock signal from the Arduino) and White to Serial Data (Data signal from the Arduino). For an Easy Pre-programmed controller to control multiple strands use this WS2801 Pre-Programmed Controller.

Pinout:

  • Red: 5V
  • White: Serial Data (Data input from Arduino Pin D2)
  • Green: Serial Clock (Clock input from Arduino Pin D3)
  • Blue: 0V

 For longer lengths, just connect the end of one strand to the next or consider our strand of 50.

Specifications:

  • 12mm WS2801 Neopixel LED String
  • 10 LEDs per string
  • Each LED contains the WS2801 chip inside it for Full 24 bit Color
  • Operating Voltage: 5V
  • Max Current Draw: 60mA per pixel ( 600mA for the whole 10 LED string )
  • Communication Protocol: SPI
  • We recommend the FastIO Arduino library for conrolling these LEDs from an Arduiino. Click here to download.
  • Luminosity:
    • Red: 300mcd
    • Green: 1000mcd
    • Blue: 300mcd
  • Viewing Angle for each LED: 120 degrees
  • We recommend attaching Male JST SM connectors and Female JST SM connectors to the bare wires at the beginning and end of the LED Strings for easy connecting and disconnecting.
  • When viewing an individual pixel with the black chip on top, the wires facing you are the input wires and the wires at the bottom are output (also labelled DO within the pixel).
