Product description

LuxaLight Long Life LED-strip APA102C Digital SPI RGB Protected High Power distinguishes itself by the A-quality 5050 Epistar chip that ensures an extra high light output. These LED-strips are fitted with the special APA102C LEDs with an embedded controller chip that allows each LED to control color and brightness separately. 

This does not require complex wiring plan, these LEDs are serially controlled by a specially designed microcontroller. With four wires the strip can be controlled: Ground, +5 V, SDI (serial data signal) and CKI (clock signal), just like a SPI bus.
The output of the APA102C strip is GND, SDO (serial data signal) and CKO (clock signal). This digital LED-strip is perfect to control with MaNima interfaces.

On the strip itself, between the LEDs this serial information is transferred from the serial output of one LED to the serial input of the next LED. It is thus possible for any length LED strip colors to come true at the beginning and end of each other, or even to create a display that  can display (moving) images.

Both RGB LED chips and the microcontroller are integrated in the housing SMD 5050, and together form a complete digital controllable full-color pixel. The LED has a built-in signal conditioning circuit to transfer the digital signal distortion free to the next LED input.

Built-in reset circuit and power lost reset circuit. Built-in electric reset circuit and power lost reset circuit. Each pixel of the three primary color can achieve 256 brightness levels (16.7 million color) full color display, and scan frequency not less than 400Hz/s.

Cascading port transmission signal by single line.

The LED used here is the APA102C, so 6-pin SMD 5050 package.

When the refresh rate is 30fps, low speed model cascade number are not less than 512 points, high speed mode not less than1024 points. Send data at speeds of 800Kbps. The color of the light were highly consistent.

Cost-effective applications.

Applications are for LED decorative lighting and indoor/outdoor LED video screen.
