Convert RC RGB floodlights to wired?

Recommended Posts

Obvious newbie here. Is there a way to convert these to wired for LOR?

How good is your soldering?

(assumes these are 12VDC  and you have a CMB24 to run it)

You need to open he back. Locate the controller (you are going bypass this)

You need some 4 conductor ROUND (to maintain w/p) cable.

You need to LEAVE the individual (R G B ) series resistors inline (the limit current AND balance the intensities)

Thanks TheDucks. My soldering is good but I’m afraid you lost me after that. I mean, I understand each sentence but not how to put it all together... Is there a tutorial with pictures somewhere?

PS: I’ve never worked with pixels before.

I don't have one. There may be a YouTube for a Generic. 

You need to do a bit of circuit tracing.  (funny, I have been doing electronics so long, I don't even think about doing tasks like this 🤔 and I forget it really is not that simple for others )

You will strip out / cut the builtin controller connections to the LED .

Each LED color has a resistor. The (color) connection goes there.  You also need to find where +12V goes
