50 FOOT JUMP OR LESS

  • System with under 50ft jumper wire or less and up to 300 lights (250ft) 
    • Normal mode controller hook up
      • Hook up left to right: green and black(ground), empty, empty, white(data), red(power)

50 TO 75 FOOT JUMP

  • System with 50-75ft jumper wire and up to 300 lights (250ft)
    • Boost mode controller hook up
      •  Hook up left to right:  green and black(ground), empty, white(data), blank, red(power)

75 TO 125 FOOT JUMP

  • System with more than 75-125ft jumper wire and up to 300 lights (250ft)
    •  Transmitter/Receiver 4 wire mode controller hook up (using extra transmitter within controller)
      • Hook 16-4 wire up to controller left to right: black(ground) , green(data), white(data), empty, red(power)

  IN            OUT

  • At the end of the 75-125ft jump, hook in the receiver(R) by matching end of the wire colors to with the 4 inputs of the receiver
  • Hook up the output of the receiver to the lights:  red to red stripe of tri-wire (power), black to white side of tri-wire (ground) and the blue to middle of tri-wire (data)
  • Ensure the correct arrow orientation on the strand of lights is going away from the receiver.
  • Now add more lights until you have another jump that is big enough to need a transmitter and receiver (this will also vary depending on how many lights how have added to the line previously to the next jump). 
  • System needing more data transmitters/receivers in line with lights because of many jumps
