Thats looks like a great price for the 1 watters, Looks like Ray will be my source for the LEDsThaiWay said:^Thanks for that Mark. I sent a quote request for 5050's and 1W 8mm Strawhats.
FYI, Ray Wu has quoted me a US0.64 price on these 1Watters:
Yes thats correctfj said:just a general question about stringing these LED's together.
if i put 10 of these 350mA LED's in series, does that mean that total string current is 3.5A?
With the strobes if you choose to get pack 2 (the PIC) then you will be able to run all your strobes through 1 channel as the PIC will allow a random flash when there is a signal sent to trigger the LED. This is the most cost effective way to control the strobes as the price per channel can be anywhere between 2 to 7 dollars (depending on what controller you use) if you choose to control them directly without the PIC. So effectively depending on how many you have and the cable size used, you could create a strobe string all connected in parallel being triggered by 1 channel using the PIC to generate the random flash.fj said:i was thinking of running strings of 10 strobes to minimise channel count.
No. LEDs in series will all have the same current going through them.fj said:if i put 10 of these 350mA LED's in series, does that mean that total string current is 3.5A?
Well the best way to wire these up is as you know now is in parallel. Now for how many channels that you need to use you could control all of them from 1 channel as that is the wire that sends the signal to the PIC to strobe which has very little current draw.fj said:hmmm...don't really know series or parallel.
i want to be able to wire up multiple led's per channel to minimise channel count. what is the best way to do that?
i have put my name down for component packs 1, 2 and 3.
