RGB Overview Of Basics RGB stands for Red, Green, Blue Each RGB Bulb (or nodes/pixels) has 3 channels in it. One Red,Green & Blue diode Each color has 256 levels of intensityto blend and make any array of color by blending the three colorstogether at different intensities. When you mix Red, Green, Blue inpaint you would get black, lighting is the opposite as it makeswhite. RGB light strings typically consist of 3-4 wires. Minleon RGBlight strings are designed with 3 wires making it more costefficient. You have one positive, one negative and one datawire.
Each RGB bulb from Minleons line of products isprogrammable. So you are capable of changing any diode on astrand to any color instead of the whole strand changing toone color at a time.Minleon RGB Products A Minleon controller and all their RGB products are ran onXDMX(eXtremeDMX) protocols instead of the traditional DMXmaking it 4 times faster and capable of handling bigger datapackets than the traditional DMX. You are able to set theireffects controllers as a slave to run it in DMX mode with othercontrollers, But this creates a lot of limitations compared to theXDMX protocols.
Minleon RGB ProductsRGB Bulb Choices Reinders is currently stocking 4 different shapes of bulbs byMinleon C7’s Frosted, G20 Frosted, M10 Frosted, G40 Frosted Frosted has the best blending properties, it brings out theRGB’s blends evenly across the whole bulb instead of havinghot spots or brighter spots in the bulb at different angles Bulb operating range 9-12V

Minleon RGB ProductsDDB16 Outputs for Effects controller The DD16 requires 9-12vdc (normally 12vdc) on its power input pins (RED POSITIVE andBLACK NEGATIVE). There are power inputs on both sides of the case that are internallyconnected. Each side connection can handle about 15-20A, so if you need over that, split theincoming power to both sides of the case. Power can be calculated as 35ma per bulb Control is via an RJ45 jack implementing the DMX RJ45 standard pinout (pin 1 D+, pin 2 D-,pin 7 and 8 Ground). Normally you would connect a standard ethernet type cable from theDD16 to ports 1-4 of the Effects Controller. The DD16 has 16 output ports for connection to light strings. Ports should be used in orderstarting with #1.

Minleon RGB Products When configuring larger light designs you may run into powerrequirement issues and also data communication issues. Thisproblem is solved with power injection T’s and inline datasender/receiver cards. These inline cards allow long distancesto be ran between bulbs A Power T should be added every 100 bulbs with a 5 amptransformer and a data sender receiver should be added whenyou have more than 10’ of space between bulbsPower & Data Communication
