Control a long led strip

Question

Hello everyone. I'm new in the forum

I have to install a white led strip of more than 35 meters.
I would like to know if you can connect the RGBW controller output to RGB amplifiers in parallel with it as shown

Please login or register to see this link.


Are all three methods safe to use with the RGBW controller?
Is there another way to handle long led strips with the RGBW controller?

Another thing is that the manual does not say anything about running the controller at maximum current. It is safe? Or should I use it for example at 80% capacity

) so can't guarantee the functionality.

Which methods, depends on environment (remember there is brightness differences due to voltage drop on the LED strips).

Fibaro specified the RGBW2 to 12A total load, and no worries, you can drive them at 100% all the time.
