Is the Esp8266 wire connection correct?

  • pi4+ hdmi gabber + hyperion + esp8266+ ws2812b 300led(60/1m)


    I'd like to connect from esp8266 to ws8212b, can I connect it like the attached picture?


    Do you mind if I don't have a level converter or resistance?


    I'd appreciate it if you could let me know what to modify.



    I'm sorry. It might look sloppy because I use a translator.

  • A level shifter is only required if the data line is longer as 1 meter.

    I would give a resistor in the line. Some does it not, but in the specs it is recommended for LED safety.

  • Is there a stable 5V voltage on the LEDs? Measure it with a multimeter.

    Powered in (+5V and Gnd) on both sides, at start and end?

    Put you a resistor in the data line?

    Note: For 300 LEDs are approx. 18 Amps required.
