I posted last week about my LED strip having issues,
I have now figured out its to do with the length between the controller (raspberry pi) and first LED as when I run it on my test bench I have 0 problems, but when I put it outside where im going to be installing it I get glitching
The distance between Pi and first LED is aprox 8-15m (using existing cable so not sure about exact length)
I found this blog online
Where they use a serial to rs232 converter to run it over a length of cat5 cable.
I jumped onto jaycar where I get my components from, and searched the part they used, but nothing came up.
so I searched the name and found one of these
Is this the same part? / will do the same job?
Or is there something else that will do what I need?
