I need to get this model of RGB working with Arduino , I can't find this model on the internet , it's says 12volts.

I need to know how to hook it up ? and if there is an Arduino code that would be great here is a picture of my model.

For the WS 2811 here some info. With this strips it is possible to realise many effects. Each led segment can be controlled individually. This way it is possible to realise many effects with the remote control and driver that should have come with it. These ledstrips are digital led strips requiring a dedicated controller. Some Arduino libraries seem to be available. There are free libraries for Arduino. AdaFruit NeoPixel and FastLed. You also can look at this link for more information http://www.instructables.com/id/Bitbanging-step-by-step-Arduino-control-of-WS2811-/

  • \$\begingroup\$ These seem to be 12v versions. What you picture is for the leds with embedded ws2812. Ops strip has one ws2811 per 3 leds (and 3 channels). The WS2811 has 6-7V VDD. And I am guessing there is a voltage regulator on the back of the module. \$\endgroup\$ – Passerby Oct 6 '16 at 15:34

  • \$\begingroup\$ You removed the picture url but not the markup. \$\endgroup\$ – Passerby Oct 6 '16 at 16:46
