What does this board do ? And do I need it?
« on: March 25, 2017, 01:27:15 PM »
I just got my picap so I can finally start playing :)

I am using 12v ws2811 strips

Question .   Is this used for power injection ?

Should I be looking to get this or something similar?

My setup will be 6 x 5m strips in one input and 4 strips in 2nd input

If you are looking at two or more injection points from a single power supply, the F8-distro would be great.

Because most 12v power supplies have three sets of outputs, the F8-distro isn't essential. It does give nice, fused outputs though.
