Introduction: How to Make Amazing Effects RGB LED Strip Circuit

About: Share diy projects to those who have the same hobby with me

Hii friend,

Today I am going to make a circuit that will control LED Strip.This circuit will give amazing effects of LED Strip.This circuit is very easy and cheap.We need only 3-RGB LED.

Let's get started,

Step 1: Take All Materials As Shown Below

Materials required -

(1.) RGB LED x3

(2.) Step-down Transformer with rectifier.(For 12V DC Power supply)

(3.) LED Strip x1

Step 2: Fold All RGB LEDs

Firstly we have to fold legs of all LEDs like as picture.

Step 3: Connect -ve Legs of All LEDs

Next we have to connect all -ve legs of RGB LEDs and fold -ve & +ve pins of all LEDs as shown in the picture.

Step 4: Now Connect Wires of LED Strip

Next connect all -ve wires of LED strip to +ve pins of all RGB LEDs as you can see in the picture.

NOTE : Wiring should not be different.

Step 5: Connect Power Supply Wire

Now we have to connect power supply wire to the circuit.

Connect +ve wire of power supply to the +ve wire of LED Strip and

Connect -ve wire of Power supply to the -ve of RGB LED as you can see in the picture.

NOTE : Power supply should be DC 12V.

Step 6: How to Use It

This circuit is very easy to use.

Give power supply to the circuit and look the amazing effects of LED Strip.

LED strip will glow with different colors as RGB LED will glow.

    This is very clever, but you need to be more specific about the components you are using for readers who are not real familiar with electronics. I recommend updating the components as follows:
    (1) "blinking" or "color changing" RGB LED x3
    A common RGB LED with 4 terminals will not work. That is what you will find on amazon if you just search for "RGB LED". You need to specifically search for "blinking" or "color changing" to find the one you are using. It looks like you are using a "blinking" RGB LED. You might want to try a "color changing" RGB LED. That should create more of a color morphing change rather an abrupt color change.
    (2) 12V DC power supply (3A or larger).
    You specifically need a DC power supply. This could be created from a transformer and rectifier, but will work with any DC supply that can produce the correct voltage for the load. Speaking of load, the minimum power supply current required will be about:
    60mA * (Number of LEDs) / 3
    For the average strip of 150 LEDs this is 3A. If your instructable requires a transformer and rectifier for the 12V DC supply most people will not understand and be scared away.
    (3) 12V RGB LED Strip x1
    "LED strip" alone could be confused with an addressable (neopixel) or single color LED strip. Neither will work for your project.

    Thank you for posting this! I was not understanding how the 3 lights were making the strip change colors, but your addition makes it all make sense.

    Agreed. This is a very vague "how to". I am surprised it was even featured in the email.
