Anybody know how to wire up this IR ON/Off Board? Answered
So I bought this 12V IR Control Receiver Board 1 Channel Relay With 2 Key Remote Control here:
Does anybody know how to wire or set one of these up? It came with no instructions. I've looked at a couple similar boards and thought I knew how to wire it up, but I am not having any luck. I can't figure out how to wire up the power and the led light strip I have to get the IR remote to turn on and off.
I thought it was a gate sort of thing where you put the positive and ground on either end for the power and then wire up the ground of the LEDs to the same ground as the power but the positive to the center post. But using my multimeter I can't see it turning anything on and off. I used my phone camera to see if the remote is working and it is at least IR blasting, I can see the light.
So does anybody know how to properly wire one of these up?
Ok, the two pin terminal by the LED receiver is the power in. The connector I was using before was bad. But still trying to figure out how to turn on/off the strip now. The gate is working as expected with the left and right always having power but the center and ground only have power when the unit is on. But it's only getting about 1 volt out when on. My power source is putting out 12v, 2 amps. Is that my problem? I have to say I'm not very good at this yet, and I can't really tell what the numbers on it are telling me. I thought it could do 12 volts out though.
