CCR's vs CCR II


Recommended Posts

Has anyone used the new CCR II, sold with the Pixie 16 controller?  Was curious what if, if any difference between the two as far as performance and lighting ability.

Thanks!!

I'm not positive but the aussischristmas forum says they are 6803 .

You are correct.  I just wish I knew a vendor other than LOR from whom a person could order 6803 strips wired in RGB order.

What is the difference in a 6803 vs a 2811?

LPD 6803 has four wires as it has a seperate clock, ws2811 has three wires as the clock is transmited on the data wire.

That seems like a minor difference. So the light output is the same?

George, what is it about the 6803 you like?

The light output is the same as they both use the 5050 led's. However, I believe I read somewhere that the 6803 is a 5-bit pixel and the 2811 is an 8-bit pixel so the 2811 can do more shades of colors.

Thanks Mr. P!!

I like that I can use it with LOR CCR controllers.  The controllers do indeed last way longer than the ribbons. 

All my new props are being built with WS2811 ribbons, but I'd still like to be able to use the LOR CCR controllers I have in inventory.

Me too, very good reason!  If you ever find them let me know please!  Thanks for the post!

I've got Kevin Judd (CLD Kevin) on the trail of a possible source.  If anyone can find some, he's the guy.

I've found 6803 12v ribbons easily enough, but none (yet) wired in RGB order.  Since the dedicated LOR controllers cannot be changed, I had to manually change the order of all the RGB channels for a single ribbon.  I'm not interested in doing that and then having to keep track of which props are in which order.

Nice, I agree Kevin can dig up bones in quicksand.

However, the original CCR controllers rapidly change the values they send to the strips in order to add 3 more bits to each pixel. Basically, it tweaks the firmware to add resolution to the hardware.

Any luck finding CCR replacement ribbons yet ?

Hi Larry I've been trying to find ribbons at the start of this years Christmas season I ran my 12 string ccr tree with 10 strips this year , today I bought 12, 2811 strips and a Falcon controller to make my tree for next year.  I have 10 old ccr strips and controllers you can have just pay for shipping   Dennis   pm me if you want them.
