Cables

There are a few different designs in cable connectors as was mentioned in the Connections Page.  But this section will cover the wires that send power and data to the controllers and the lights.

Extension Cables

Extension Cables

Extension cables are small sections of cables with connections on either end already attached. They are great if you don't want to splice a cable together. They usually come in 10ft, 5ft, and 3ft. 

Network Cables

Network Cables

Network cables are the easiest cables to get as they are the most common. Their is only one thing to look for when ordering cables, and that's to stay away from CCA Wire

Power Injection

Power Injection

Power injection cables are an easy way to extend the power to more pixels on a strand or multiple strands on one port. There are a few different types, but the best kind are the ones that only have power and ground at the T, this makes it eaiser so you don't pull out the data pin on the T or the power cable. 

F-Amp/Null/Boost

F-Amp/Null/Boost

F-Amp – The F-Amp can be attached directly to the pixel controller or can be placed some distance away from controller.


Null Pixel – Each pixel serves as a re-transmitter of the data signal. A pixel is called a Null Pixel when it is used solely as a re-transmitter for distance and not actually mapped to any models in the display. This is configured in the controller so it essentially ignores that pixel


uAmp – The uAmp is a signal conditioner that cleans up the data, allowing it to fither transmiton distances than a null pixel.  This can get about 60-70 ft between pixels. These operate without the need to configure the controller.
