LED flood ligh enclosuret
« on: April 28, 2018, 08:40:22 AM »
I am working with my first RobG flood lights. I bought the 20watt, 24 volt version. I need to put them in an enclosure but cannot find a good choice. There are many to choose from but which one? Are they a standard size, mounting points, etc?

I am hoping for some recommendations from this knowledgable group. Links would be most appreciated.

What kind of flood light do you have that needs an enclosure

I use the 20 watt led slim style floods from Ebay. Mine have been used year round for 3 years for house lighting. The only problems I have had are losing one from lightning and one from a hedge trimmer. Oops lol.

Rposgood. I see the flood light kit. But with the cheap cost of complete lights available what's the reason to buy a kit anymore  don't think you'll save much money .

What RGB led flood light would you recommend? I will be running it on a Falcon 16 V3 & programming with xLights.

  Hi Mike need a little more info how many floods, where do you want to use them, and off the Falcon are you going to use a dumb controller for the floods  or DMX controlled floods

Probably so but as I already have the floods from RobG I am going ahead with mounting them in an enclosure

Show me a  cheap one with Ws2811 pixel control.   Yeah there are cheap RGB floods out there but they are not controlled by WS2811 pixel data which is what the RobG floods provide

Just curious... why go thru the hassle when you can buy pixel floods now?  I purchased lots of 10w 12v 2811 floods from China for $15.00 and 20w 24v UCS1903 for $20.00.  I don't see the savings when you can buy a turn key product for those prices.

Should have stated 2811 not dumb RGB.

2811 control or dmx control could go either way.  But in your first post you said "cheap".  Show me a link to a cheap dmx (or 2811) controlled flood.  I would probably choose that over RobG's kit if its price comparable. 

Just curious... why go thru the hassle when you can buy pixel floods now?  I purchased lots of 10w 12v 2811 floods from China for $15.00 and 20w 24v UCS1903 for $20.00.  I don't see the savings when you can buy a turn key product for those prices. 
Can you post some links please?   The RobG kit for a 20w 2811 flood can be built for under $20.  If you found a seller of  pre-built ones for $20 delivered, I'd like to know.  The few that I've seen are closer to $40 shipped.

I never said $20.00 delivered.  RayWu offers them as does everyone else.  Mine came from Scottled.  Not sure exactly on cost per shipping for each one.  I ordered (30) 10w, (12) 20w, 600 Pixabulbs, 200 modules and a few other odds and ends.  Shipping was $325 for all of it.  I just wanted to make sure people knew they were available. Email for who I bought mine from is sales03@scottled.com if you want to contact for a quote
