Analog LED strips
Way of control Analog LED Strips
Analog strips are frequently controlled over DMX or using remote controls. In case you use single color analog LED strips (usually white), you are able to connect them directly into the power source.
Most common way of controlling analog LED strips is over DMX signal. This allows you to change color of the strips (each part on the suits – 16 parts in total), using standard DMX lightning console (or software).
