LED RGB (red, green, blue) wall controllers which are used for colour changing effects for LED tapes and other colour changing LED lights. They are available in 2 output types; DMX which requires an additional DMX driver and an RF/Wi-Fi version which requires an additional receiver but operates wire-lessly from the LED strips. Please see diagrams for connection types or contact us to discuss.
The DMX version is a available in a single zone or 4 zone version. The RF/Wi-Fi version has 4 zones as standard. 4 zone wall controllers are used for controlling multiple runs of LED lighting. The buttons have a toggle facility that allows you to control each zone individually or simultaneously.
This range of LED wall controllers are easy to use and allows colours to be changed through the colour wheel. Ideal for use when a stationary wall mounted controller is required. The RF version can be used as well as a hand held remote control see SR-2818.
DMX Specification (SR-2811WDMX single zone or SR-2812WDMX 4 zone)
RF / Wi-Fi Specification (SR-2820)
Q1) Which one should I choose?
A1) If your installation is simple and short (around 10 metres) then go for the DMX version, they require an additional DMX driver but wiring is quick and simple. If you can't physically run a cable between the controller and the DMX driver then choose the RF version which is wire-free.
Q2) I only have a 230V supply for the wall controller as I'm replacing a light switch, what do I do?
A3) The SR-2820 wall controller is now mains voltage. It then works wire-less from the receiver.
Q3) What is the longest length of LED strip I can run off them?
A3) By adding more amplifiers and drivers you can go infinitely. LED tape is generally limited to 10M runs due to voltage drop issues but you can wire the input cables directly back to the DMX driver or receiver, then butt the LED tapes up next to each other to make it appear like one continuous run. For rectangle or square shaped installations you can position the DMX driver or receiver in the corner and run the LED tape in an L shape configurable. Please contact us with your dimensions for advice and project quotations.
I'm installing these LED Strips in a bathroom as both the primary and ambient lighting. Perfect.
The controller was used with standard colour RGB led lights so had a spare channel (White). Controller works well & looked smart. The customer was very pleased with the lights & controller. Easy to install with a 35mm 1gang back box. The cover clips on/off easily.
