This is a 10-pack of WS2811 addressable RGB LEDs in a 5mm through-hole package. Each LED has the WS2811 driver integrated into the diffused plastic lens and is controlled through a high-speed 1-wire interface that allows for large numbers of LEDs to be chained together to form large displays.

Each colour channel of every RGB led is 8 bit. This equates to 16.7 million colours. The LEDs are controlled by shift-registers built into each lamp. In order to drive the strip you need 5v, GND and Data - easy! Once the registers are loaded, you can stop sending data.

These strips have a maximum voltage of 6V - anything higher will blow them up!

Note: As these LEDs are cased, if subjected to over-voltage or reverse voltage the casing itself can fail and parts of it can fly off at speed (it makes a high pitched wine, then a pop as the top comes flying off - not something you want to hit you in the eye!)

  • Maximum 5V @ 60mA draw per 0.65" strip segment (all LEDs on full brightness)
  • 5VDC power requirement (do not exceed 6VDC) - no polarity protection
  • LED wavelengths: 630nm/530nm/475nm

Pin out:

  • 1: DOUT
  • 2: GND
  • 3: 5V
  • 4: DIN

Customer Reviews

Works with Arduino but NOT with Photon Review by Richard
Your Rating
Beware of these. Although both my Arduino and my Photon can control the pre-built neopixel strip, ONLY the Adrduino can control the individual LEDs. I've tried using a logic level converter and no joy. Must be super-sensitive.
