Description:

WS2813 LED strip is an evolutional version of WS2812 LED strip.

5V individually addressable strip with the feature of signal break-point continuous transmission, which meansthe even some pixel is broken, the signal will continues without reshaping.

The control circuit is embedded into the 5050 LED, which makes it has a better lighting performance.

The built-in IC is invisible from outside, this makes the strips more robust and more flexible to be applied on different types of surfaces.

As the individually addressable pixel, each LED is cuttable.

WS2813 is an intelligent circuit which integrates both the control circuit and RGB chip into single 5050 LED, to form an external control pixel.

The control circuit and the LED share the sole power source.

It uses the built-in signal reshaping circuit to achieve the signal waveform shaping, and no distortion of waveform of signal takes place.

5V working voltage makes it energy saving and environmental friendly.

WS2813 is widely used in guardrail tubes, pixel displays, flexible / rigid strips, modular lighting applications, stage lighting and innovation electronic gadgets.

SDIP supply the individually programmable WS2813 LED strip in 30LEDs/meter, 60LEDs/meter and 144LEDs/meter, based on different waterproof rate, IP20/IP65/IP67/I68, along with the LED power supply and LED controllers.

Combining with aluminium profile, these flexible strips can be made into rigid LED strip.

Besides the physical LED strips, SDIP also provide the one-stop services of Site audit, Layout design, Lighting effect and programming based on LedEdit or Madrix software platforms, Product development and implementation, Installation and debugging, we have the field engineer teams to assist you at your sites.

    In WS2813 strip, a single NZR communication mode is used by the data transfer protocol.

    The DIN port actually receives the data from the main controller, once the pixel power-on is reset.

    After that, a 24-bit data is collected by first pixel which sends it further to the internal data latch.

    Once the transmission is made, the signal decreases about 24-bit for each of the pixel.

    After that, each pixel starts getting auto reshaping technology for transmission.
