Inline RGB LED Controller
Inline RGB LED Controller
Q: Can you list all colors in solid color mode? - by Logan
A: Probably something like Blue, Aqua, Green, Yellow, Red, Pink, White. We have not tested for all colors.
Q: If I wire this into a vehicles gauge cluster to connect a rgb strip to use as the lighting within the gauge cluster will I be able to use the vehicles stock dimmer switch?
- by Logan
A: We haven't tried that yet, so can't say for sure what will happen.
Q: is white a color is solid color mode - by Logan
A: Yes
Q: An earlier inquiry asked about controlling separate 5 mm mini lights, and I have the same question. Your only answer was 12 volts output. What is the max. amperage output, and do you see any issues with controlling separate 5 mm lights as long as they're rated for 12 vdc?? - by Mark (Alexandria, MN)
A: The controller is made for 12V DC, max output is 12 amps (4 amps per channel) which is a lot of leds. You can wire up separate leds, whatever is wired into the controller the controller will control.
Q: I want to use the LEDs to light up a top of a wall on the patio, I want them to change colors and be able to fix the color at different times, also be able to dim them as well. What would be the best approach - by Gerald (Cape Coral, FL)
A: You need the RGB strips: https://www.oznium.com/flexible-led-strips/thin-waterproof-ribbon and a controller: https://www.oznium.com/led-controllers
With the controller you will be able to dim, change patterns, etc.
Q: If I select mode 8 then switch to a solid color, when I switch back to the modes will it select mode 8 or move me on to mode 9?
A: It should take you back to mode 8, the unit has a memory for the last setting.
Q: Will this controller stay switched "on" when power is removed? Say someone wanted to connect this to thier courtesy lights in thier car. Open door, lights come on and then time out. Open door, they come on again. If not, can you recommend something?
A: Yes
Q: I purchased the prewired ribbon led million color, and hooked up the inline controller, however, it seems that it defaults to red instead of off, which messes with the colors when operating. Is this a wiring concern? Or defective component? - by Nicholas (Calgary, Canada)
A: Could be defective, please call Customer Service for assistance at 800-245-8131.
Q: I purchased the prewired ribbon led million color, and hooked up the incline controller, however, it seems that it defaults to red instead of off, which messes with the colors when operating. Is this a wiring concern? Or defective component?
A: It sounds like you're not using it properly. Please try turning it off with the off feature on the unit itself and see what happens.
Q: I have this controller connected to rgb flexible strips, and the green is staying on when I power it off and/or cycle through all the colors. Green also does not get any brighter when selected to just green, compared to just blue or just red. Is my controller defective? Or is this a common problem? - by Anthony
A: Could be a defective strip or controller. Please call Customer Service to trouble shoot 866-332-6411.
Q: I am wiring independent 5mm RGB tri-color LEDs with your controller. Do I need to install a resistor as well or is it build it? I.E. can I directly connect the LEDs to your controller?
A: The controller outputs 12V.
Q: Can this be used with the Pre-wired Ribbon LED Strips (Million Color?) I'd be hardwiring it via a fuse tap in order to use as floor illumination in my Scion.

If so, how does this fit in with the connectors of the Pre-wired Ribbon LED Strips?

Thank you! ~ Mike - by Michael (Michigan)
A: Yes

To wire up, simply splice the wires together.
Q: Can this be used to replace the small auto controller with your Million color Flexible LED strips? - by Frank
A: No, sorry. The Flexible leds strips needs a Common Negative Controller and the Inline RGB Controller is Common Positive.
Q: How does this controller dim the LEDs? Specifically, if I take the common (+) and power some non-RGB LEDs (and return to a common ground - i.e. the 12V source), will they dim too? - by Matt (Maryland)
A: They will not dim. They need to be connect through the controller.
Q: I would like to illuminate a light box with a 2 inch diameter whole in the top over which a crystal bottle sits. I would like to have the ability to pick one of three colors (red, blue, white) and possible be able to cycle through the colors. I am looking for the most economical approach. Budget target $30 - by Paul
A: You could use an RGB strip with this controller: https://www.oznium.com/led-controllers/freedom-rgb-controller Or this controller, but you won't get the red, blue, white for solid colors: https://www.oznium.com/led-controllers/inline-rgb-led-controller
