Inject Power
« on: November 21, 2018, 11:27:24 AM »
Hello all
Can you inject power from the end of the string or does it have to be in front as in first pixel?

Doesn't matter. I injected end of a string just last night.

Inject anywhere, but if it is not the same power source as your controller, do not power from the controller.

Yes, and anywhere along the line from beginning to end.
