This amplifier (also called a "booster" or "repeater") is optional. You need it if the load of the RGB or RGB ColorPlus (4-color) ribbon or strips exceeds the rated output of the controller or decoder you will use. "rgb_manual.pdf" is a document that explains, in detail, the design criteria you should use for larger installations. It also includes simplfied circuit diagrams that make it easy to construct larger systems using amplifiers such as this. You can cascade amplifiers to build a very large system. Please call if you have questions, or to request "rgb_manual.pdf".
- Four signal inputs and outputs: red, green, blue, other, and common anode (DC+).
- Operates on 12 or 24 volts DC.
- Capacity: 5 amps per channel or 16 amps total, whichever is less. That's 3 channels x 5 amps or 4 channels x 4 amps.
- Operating temperature range: -4 to 140 °F.
- 2 year manufacturer warranty.
This is an improved version of the RP306, which we no longer sell, because AMP4 works better on the low (dim) end and has 4 channels instead of 3.
