Do I really need these if all my props are with in 30' of my controllers? Some props will be daisy chained.
Thanks Mike


Example: Controller, 5'-8' cable, 5M 50 pixel strip, then 10'-20' extension cable, then 50 ct pixel nodes.

Mike, going 20ft between pixel strips can be a problem. The data signal from between pixels is not as clean or strong as the data from a controller. That is where an F-amp is a good idea (daisy chained pixel strips or strings)
