RGB Pixels are digitally-controllable lights you can set to any color, or animate. Each LED module and controller chip is molded into a ‘dot’ of silicone. The dots are waterproof and rugged. There are four flanges molded in so that you can ‘push’ them into a drill hole in a thin sheet materual. They’re typically used to make outdoor signs. We have two types of RGB pixels, 12mm and 20mm. They have the same controller chip and use the same power but the LED and shape differs.
