Is the led driver malfunctioning? or am I? Answered
the led driver
Im using an arduino to fade LEDs through PWM. The code works on normal rgb LEDs, but i need it to be much brighter. I bought 3, 3 watt, HPLEDs. they are very very nice and bright. but only work with all colors full brightness... i have attached the arduino pins that controlled the normal rgb LEDs to the driver. but this does nothing different then if the pins were disconnected. also if i dont power up the driver and just plug in the arduino it will change the colors of the leds. but it will be just as bright as the normal ones because its only getting 5 volts instead of 13.5. also the color fade cycle acts really weird. not sure what thats all about or why it even does anything just with the arduino plugged in.
Does anyone know where to get a decent LED driver? i have looked around for days and could not find what im looking for. this looked like my best option but its not working...
thanks for your help.
