    Hey community,

    i installed at a friends house an ws2812b led stripe.
    ± 270 Leds, so max Ampere, if all leds are 100% on white would be 270 Leds * 0,06A(each LED) = 16,2 A...
    But we had only a 6A power supply... and just wanted to test and see how it looks like

    after 2-3 seconds the PSU on 100% white shutted down...

    Picture 1: LEDs white 50% brightness
    Leds beide seiten.jpeg
    Picture 2: LEDs white 100% brightness
    Leds eine seite.jpeg
