Using a 1500mA LED driver to power 1400mA of LEDs? Answered
The LEDs are:
Max. Forward Voltage: 3.0-3.6V
Max. Forward Current: 700mA
The LED driver:
DC20-39V 1500mA +-5%
I have done the calculations and will be using 20 LEDs in 2 strings with 10 LEDs in each resulting in 1400 mA at 36.0 VDC. So I bought the LED drivers stated above with the current knowledge i had. But after learning about Constant Current LED Driver, I'm not so sure anymore as the LEDs will not draw what they need, instead be supplied with a constant 1500mA.
Am I correct to assume that the LEDs will be fried driven in this configuration?
Is there a way to make it work or is the only option to buy a 1400ma LED driver?
