On the RGB LED Strings:

Are these 30 or 60 RGB lights pre meter?

Is the listed price for 1 (5 meter roll) or what is the case quanity?


In the video the RGB strip is operated thru DMX. These can also be controlled with a LOR DC board correct?

Is the Basic Controller needed if the strips are to be used with LOR?

Paul:

They are 60 per meter - the price is for one ribbon that is 5 meters - the controller is not needed and can be controlled with LOR.

when you say the controller is not needed are you meaning the RGB controller I don't have DMX so would I need the controller for the ribbon to operate the ribbon with LOR

Don,

To use with LOR, you would use the LOR DC controller CMB-16D

Plus you would need to purchase a 12v power supply from somewhere. Making sure it was enough to power the DC controller and whatever you have hooked to it.

Don,

They just use Cat5 like all the other LOR controllers.

For power supplies, I use several different ones with my 9 DC controllers, depending on the " amp load" requirements of the lights that I have connected to them.

I want to jump in here and confirm the setup. To use the RGB from CDI, I need:
1) CDI's RGB strips: "LEDRGB STRING"
2) LOR's Controller: CMB16D-QC
3) A 12v power supply that plugs into the controller

Is that correct? I am looking forward to washing my display with color next year!

Thx,
Eric

Yes that plus a bit of wire will do the trick.

Being a newbie, I just called CDI and got the scoop on what a CDI presale is. This helped me, so I thought it might help you:

- Presale started today and will last until January 20th
- You call them up to place the order and they require half down at purchase
- The remaining half is due (plus shipping) when the products arrive in stock (starting in May)
- CDI uses this presale to help them determine whats going to be popular for the upcoming season.

CDI/Paul - If I misrepresented anything let me know.

I found the above helpful as I didn't know if it was like an Apple product launch (out of stock the first day) and $$$ is thin right now being weeks before Christmas so knowing that I have until mid-January to pay 50% of what I want helps out.

Hope this helped you!
Eric

I’m interested in the new RGB LED strips but I have a few more questions:
The CMB16D-QC is a 16 channel controller; would the RGB strips use up 3 channels for each strip (1 for each color)? Does the controller come with, or need an enclosure?
What is the Enttec open DMX USB dongle that is shown in the video? How is it different/better/worse than the CMB16D?
The strips can be cut… once they are cut, would all the sections still work, or is the piece that gets chopped off now garbage? Can chopped pieces be added to other full length strips? Can 1 x 15’ strip be made into 3 x 5’ strips? Can 4 x 15’ strips be made into 3 x 20 foot strips… etc?

Does the controller come with, or need an enclosure? No it doesnt come with one and needs one if you put it outside. I have one in the garage that just sits on a shelf.

What is the Enttec open DMX USB dongle that is shown in the video? How is it different/better/worse than the CMB16D? Dont know this one.

You can cut them up as much as you want (within the cutting marks) and rearrange them. remember, depending on the jacket, to consider the effects of the elements on the ends, I sealed mine with epoxy and heat shrink.

A note on your 3 x 20' question. If you want/need a strip longer than the 5 meters (16') you can do that BUT you must introduce another power line past 5 meters. If you do not want you want the strip 'white' (ALL ON) the end furthest from the power input will be pink in color not white.

Around my garage I have a total of 10 meters. Without 2 power inputs it is pink on one end. I have it powered from the 2 top corners. It is the same color white powered this way.

If you plan to use these strips and cut them up to fit your needs you will need some wire and you will need to be able to solder.

I have not yet bought from CDI. Apparently everyone on here swears Paul has good products and service. So I am considering making a preorder this year.

I have a few questions though.

1. Are the LED's Full wave?
2. Is there a minimum order?
3. When during the year will these ship?
4. Are you billed when you order or when they ship?
5. How do I add my items to my cart?

Thanks!

[align=left]Greetings!
[/align][align=left]Save up to 30% during our Pre Order Sales Event!
[/align]

At Creative Displays we celebrate the holidays right up until January 20th. Yes, it's time again for our once-a-year Pre Order Sales Event with big discounts on next season's prices and easy payment terms to boot. Our Pre Order Price list can be found at:


http://www.creativedisplays.com/Announcements

When you order from December 12th to January 20th, you'll save up to 30% on all of our commercial-grade holiday lights and accessories. Plus, all that's required to reserve your order is a 50% deposit with the balance due when the order ships in the spring.

Because of global economic pressures, production time has increased from 90 days to 180 days in some cases, so it's important to get our order in as early as possible. On a more positive note, manufacturing costs have stabilized, so we'll be able to see our prices stabilize as well.

This is a great opportunity for you to take advantage of early season orders for 2012 and save up to an additional 30%! But hurry - this sales event doesn't last long and it only happens once a year. Call 800-733-9617 or email paul@creativedisplays before January 20th for your free no-obligation, personalized price quote.
[align=left] Thank you for your patronage. Don't forget pricing can be found at:
