A high-power 6-color LED, with white, amber, and UV added to RGB. Control as 2 consecutive WS2811's. Draws 3A @ full brightness.
I made this so I could have better light quality than the RGB LEDs provide, especially at home. The amber is particularly nice for day-to-day, and the UV adds something special for parties. I used WS2811 protocol so it would be easy for anyone to control.
It has a standard WS2811 connector in. There are pads for an out connector, but it is not populated - it needs a lot of power, so chaining them from a standard connector is not a great idea. It is painfully bright; do not look at the UV directly if it is powered at more than 5 or 6 of 255. It also gets pretty hot when running...the LED vendor claims 18W, but specifications work out to more like 6 to 8W. If you put it in a case, make sure to allow enough ventilation, or it will burn out. It comes assembled as shown in the photo, with a heat sink that is not shown. To run at full power the heat sink must be used, or the board must be mounted on something that provides good heat transfer, like aluminum or steel, with thermal tape (not provided). The heat sink provided does have thermal tape.
For an interesting party effect, set the RGBA channels to a fixed color and pulse the UV.
