@osc Each strip has data in and data out. you connect data in of the first strip to the m5stack and then the data in of the next strip is connected to data out of the first.
I tried to fill this in but easily distr........
@osc Port A is ok for RGB LEDS, all you need to do is provide additional pins to the black and red wires.
Black, white and yellow remain connected between the M5Stack snd the leds
I need to make a picture :(
@Thrasher not all LED strips come with power supplies, Most RGB/neopixel/WS2812/SK6812 come without power supplies.
@osc all each strip needs is data and gnd from the M5Stack. My lead can be used on any USB adapter that can provide enough power. The power supply you linked to only needs the 5V and gnd connected to the strip but both the supply and the M5Stack must have the gnd connected together.
In addition if you have a pattered you want duplicated on a second strip you can connect strips together in parallel
Hey guys, I hope someone help me~
Currently, I bought M5stack Gray and just started programming with UIflow.
I want to control five led strip which has 144 leds-WS2822B each.
I found out that M5stack doesn't have enough amps like 500mA. I hope you could answer which I should connect to M5stack.
For higher power loads you need to supply additional power to the Strips.
See this video on how i made a cable to provide the extra power
Only came across this site, this week.
Very fast shipping even to the UK!
Have you tried changing the baud rates?
There are many reasons for the timeout.
I am trying to find an uiflow program for the hear rate module.
Does anybody have this available
Thanks for your support
The heart unit isn't supported at present however, there is a micropython lib for the sensor. I will be trying to use the sensor under MP at some point but I've had some issues to take care of first.
