I'm a little confused right now. I have some led floods im building using ten rectangle modules "dumb" encased in a flood light enclosure and gonna drive them off a 27 channel DMX controller. My question is the controller has 4 outputs com, r,g,b. And the modules have 4. 12v+, a,b,c. How do these wire together. The controller is powered by a power supply. Also Id like to is cat 5 to connect the dumb modules to the controller. Can anyone help me out with how to do this?

Almost all the RGB LEDS we use are "common positive."

So the +5v or +12v lead goes to the Com. The other 3 leads go a,b,c to r,g,b

ok great thanks Jon  the lights wires are yellow which is the comm positive. Then blue green red wires attached to abc. So should I take red wore and go to r on controller or should I take a to r b to b and c to g ignoring the wire colors z

The red wire is for Red. It goes to A. Green to B. Blue to C.

Thanks a lot. Got it working. It had yellow red green and blue wires. And yellow was the power or com. Cat five has orange blue green and red. So I just used the pairs of cat 5 accordingly and it worked fine. Only thing is when I plugged in power supply the fan ran the whole time from power on till power off and made a spark sound when I powered it up and lights flashed lol. But worked just fine when I ran a sequence through it
