Strobe controller
« on: November 13, 2013, 07:59:14 AM »
Inspired by Sean in my 10W spot hack thread, I would like to suggest a new Falcon board.  I have suggest this idea before and nothing came to fruition.  Maybe someone here would like the idea. 

An 8 channel strobe board for 1W leds.  Pixel net signal and 12V via F16/hub.  Maybe the size of the SSR4/CG500 or SSC/pill form factor.  Pic runs a strobe routine so it is a single channel on off controller.  I suppose it would need be constant current for the leds (over my head).  In a perfect world the intensity of the channel would control strobe speed, low-slow, high-fast.

an FYI announcement.

Ed at J1sys is currently in process of releasing a new feature on his controllers that perform strobe functions which have 16 parameters of control. and it will be selected by a control Universe so that the strings can operate normally as well as being able to be set to strobe mode when needed. I currently have 0.75W  strobe strings from RayWu, would love to see the 1W version.

Thanks.  Are you referring to these? http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/12mm-0-75W-WS2811-WHITE-strobe-pixel-string-DC5V-input-50pcs-a-string-IP68-rated/701799_1141331702.html  Never saw them before I searched strobe...  How bright are these versus other rgb gear?

Yes they are the strobes that Ray is currently shipping out, I do like the idea of a brighter strobe though. Having a 0.75 Watt white is so much brighter than mixing using a rgb pixel
