High Power RGB Led Project Answered
I will be doing my first high power RGB Led project soon based on these leds:
I will be using it in my boat utilizing this RGB controller:
I will be using the project in my boat and thus tied to 12v dc battery power bus. The RGB specs call for:
DC Forward Voltage (VF):Red 7.5V;Green 10V ~ 12V;Blue 10V ~ 12V @ 350ma per channel.
My question is 'What is the best way to get the voltage down to the 7.5v required for Red'? As I am in a boat with a single 12v battery, I would like to be as efficient as possible. I plan to use 4-6 of these leds. Since each requires 12vish on the highest channel, I am planning to put them in parallel.
Thanks in advance!
