NeoPixel Triple-Ring using GRB instead of expected RGB order

by jwillikers on Mon Oct 25, 2021 10:05 pm

I recently purchased a NeoPixel Triple-Ring from Digikey, but noticed it doesn't display the correct color when I use RGB ordered data as I'd expect for the WS2812B its using. Flipping the data order from RGB to BRG gives me the expected color. This makes me wonder if the product has changed in some way. Or, could I have messed up the wiring somehow? I'm using a 5V power-supply and logic-level shifter to convert from 3.3V to 5V logic for the pixels.

It's generally nothing to be concerned about. There's some variation which is why the libraries accommodate different color orders. The only potential concern is mixing strips/etc with different orders. But even then you could add a layer that will hide that.

It sounds like you have everything in order.
