QuinLED-Dig-Hexa

QuinLED-Dig-Hexa has not been released yet! Will come somewhere in 2019!

QuinLED-Dig-Hexa is part of the digital LED controller family and is an ESP32 powered WiFi connected addressable LED (strip) controller.

QuinLED-Dig-Hexa is suited for 5v LED strips with various chips such as the WS2812b (Neopixel), APA102/SK9822 (Dotstar) or SK6822 LED chips.

Power handling

Power handling depends on the amount of copper that is applied to the PCB. Generally these values are 1OZ by default or 2OZ if you pay extra. Depending on your needs you need to select the right amount of copper you need in your boards.

This board has a triple set of input terminals to provide maximum input power. For output power there are terminals per channel, including positive 5v and GND.

Addressable LED strip often comes with seperate barrel plugs or cables to feed in more power into the strip directly and/or on both sides. I’ve designed the QuinLED-Dig series to handle as much amperage as possible but there are limits. If more power is needed, please make sure to feed the strip directly from the same power supply!

Compared to the QuinLED-Dig-Duo the QuinLED-Dig-Hexa can handle a lot more power flowing through the board, although output per port is still limited.

*Hooking up multiple power supplies is not recommend!
