Synapse "Getting Started" Receiver Bundle




$56.50 ea.

Wireless control of RGB lighting, my my how technology is progressing! Team a few of these bundles up with a single Synapse Transmitter bundle to have multiple high power LEDs controlled by a Wii Nunchuk!

Description [Hide]

This bundle was born out of the idea of creating wireless stage lighting control. Starting with some example code that Synapse Wireless was kind enough to release to us we where to control all the PWM channels from a RF200 radio via manipulation from a Wii Nunchuk controller. We then combined that system with the majority of parts from our Northern Lights bundle and were able to do on-the-fly manipulation not only of high-power LED brightness, but of color as well. Control the Northern Lights with simple movements of your thumb and finger. Maybe you are just looking for an epically long range wireless programmable RGB lighting, this bundle is a sure bet for that too.

You can attach a large number of these Receiver bundles to a single Transmitter bundle as it sends a multicast signal to them all. The corresponding Transmitter Bundle is avaiable here. We recommend using a battery under 6V with this bundle, like a single LiPo or a 3-cell AA pack. If you'd like to use a wired power supply to provide a higher voltage to the Star Controller we recommend finding a regulator to drop the voltage beneath 6V for the Synapse Breakout board.
