Total Power Question

Bradley Ward


I see that the maximum output of the RGBW controller is 12 amps, and that the maximum you can output to any one channel is 6 amps.


I need to control 4 RGBW 24v light strips. The specification for each strip says that is uses 60w of power, 2.5 amps.


My confusion is this: If the max on any one channel of the RGBW controller is 6 amps, am I correct in assuming that the "R" output is one channel, the "G" output is one channel, etc?


So 4 of the light strips add up to 240 watts of power, 10.0 amps.    Will a single RGBW controller power all 4 light strips, or do I need to use 2 RGBW controllers?

You answered for yourself, you can't do it with one controller. He would be overloaded. Use two. It then gives you more options for variation of light scenes.
