It says in the description how to wire it up:
LED- and LED+ connect to the LED
IN- and IN+ connect to the battery pack
SWA and SWB connect to the switch
*optional* STAT and STAT- connect to clash sensor or separate switch to enable flash on clash"

Also I don't think this driver will will give you a scroll effect with an LED string but rather have each of the LEDs fade on when you turn the switch on. If I am right about this then there would be no need for you to have 8 different strings making up your blade (just one string of 80 LEDs). Also make sure that you bought the driver with it set to 2,000ma output current for best results as your LEDs are rated to use 1,920ma (80 LEDs * 24ma) all together if used in parallel. Just to be clear I am assuming that you were planning on running all of these LEDs in parallel and not series. Also know that I have never used this driver so I am only making guesses as to whether or not this works.
