Though we’ve asked the factory to thoroughly test each string of RGB nodes before shipping them to us, I double-check that each color in each node works properly in our shop before sending them out to our end customers.
In this case, 185 strings of 42 nodes were tested today.
For them to be tested simultaneously (they weren’t, but just for fun…) the following calculations are required:
- 185 strings x 42 nodes / string = 7,770 nodes
- 7,770 nodes * 3 channels / node = 23,310 control channels
- 23,310 control channels / 512 channels per universe = 45.5 DMX universes
- 23,310 control channels * 21 mA per channel = 489.51 Amps at 5.0V DC
