This version of the MegaBrite has right angle headers installed instead of the standard vertical headers. They were custom assembled for a customer who ended up not needing the full amount. We're selling these at a rock bottom price, get them while they last!
The MegaBrite is an upgraded version of the ShiftBrite. It uses the same A6281 controller chip with simple SPI daisy chained control, but uses five-chip 100mA wide angle red, green, and blue LEDs. The perceived output power of the red channel is less than the blue and green channels, but when mixed at maximum output it appears white. Each LED supplies a blinding ~35,000 mcd over a 120 degree viewing angle.
Due to the additional power requirements, if you need more than 5 MegaBrites on a chain, you will need to connect additional power throughout the chain. A screw terminal header is supplied to directly inject power where needed. If desired, each MegaBrite can be powered individually.
