Kewl.  Looks like he did some 2811 spots too.


I saw those too, but they are only 3w RGB which means its only 1W per color and 3W full white.  Would love to find some of these using the 9W RGB (3x3) COB LED.

We are using two of the LOR CMB-24D controllers in the DMX mode have one running off a F16v2 board, the second LOR CMB-24D  controller is shown in the attached photo, as I'm using a Pi with a Picap
in two different locations I use these controllers to run 10W RGB LED floodlights also with the Pi with a Picap set up I daisychain off the LOR CMB-24D  controller and run two 30 W DMX floodlights..

By the way just for everybody's information I won a door prize gift certificate and was able to get these two controllers.  ;D

For the non-solder types, Ray does also offer prebuilt RGB flood lights with built in ws2811, so you could connect those to a F16v3.  You might need to do power injection depending on which flood you buy since some run on different voltages.

I am assuming to use the 36v floods, you would have to power inject it from a 36v DC power supply, and also run the ground & data back to the F16v3 board.

Yes.  I use some of Robs 20W RGB flood boards and they run off 24V so I power inject this way right at the controller inside the CG1500 for that pigtail and have a few colored zip ties at the end of the cord so I dont plug the wrong thing into it.  :)

I recently purchased a "10W RGB LED flood light;DC12V input;with 4 wire PWM driver inside" from Ray Wu (to test it out).  Not sure if this is designed to work with a F16v3 board or not.  If it will, and idea how to wire it up?  link of product below
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/10W-RGB-LED-flood-light-DC12V-input-with-4-wire-PWM-driver-inside/2037336497.html

Yes and No.  You need to also grab a PWM driver board.  You run an ethernet cable from the dmx port on the falcon to the dmx port on the pwm.  You connect your power source to the PWM driver board.  You then run 4 wire cable from the driver board to your floods.  I used to use Ray's DMX floods and have switched completely over to these as there is no programming required to set these up and less power/data cable management (in my opinion).  I leave the dip switch set to 1 on the driver board and just set my real start channel on the falcon serial output tab.  In my case I run the 50w/24v versions and love the color wash effects I get against my stone and brick house front.  I have a PWM driver board with each of my falcons (I run multiple FPP remotes across my setup) and just attach whatever floods I need in that area to that driver board.

Did you ever run any DLA aethers?  Curious how the 50W/24v compares.  Love the look and performance but HATE setting the aethers up.

Not sure if the question is for me, but if so, no I never ran DLA aethers but anything related to "HATE setting" is something I want to avoid  ;D  I don't mind some complexity (as I run 9 remotes currently with 100% power injection by the way some people define it) but try not to be more complex than I need to.

Finally got around to wiring/testing my 4 wire PWM flood out, and got it to work.  As Jon said, not as much light as a 85w incandescent flood puts out.  I going to place an order for a bunch of Ray's 30w floods.  Thanks for the help.

One thing to keep in mind is that a 10w RGB is really just 3w per color and only 9w when full on white.  Anything other than 100% full white is going to be less.
The same principle applies to the other wattage RGB floods as well:
 
"10w" RGB flood = 3w per color
"20w" RGB flood = 6w per color
"30w" RGB flood = 10w per color
"50w" RGB flood = 16w per color

Thought I would share what I'm doing with twentyone(21) 20W 24VDC DMX floodlights!
They are so bright I have to run them at 40%.
David helped me with the F48 and F16v3 both worked thru xmas with no failures!
The F48 via uSD Firmware!

Note: If you want any input on powering let me know and I will send my design.
I converted my landscape 12VAC 10 & 12Ga wiring to 24VDC and changed all of my landscape bulbs to 24vdc leds.
Also, you could use multiple DMX outputs on the F16v3 to avoid the DMX hub if the number of locations are less than 4.
