Looks fantastic.  I don't blame you for not rushing to throw new stuff into that pristine tank of yours. Can't wait to see what you have on the waiting list.

Great Build!

Hello, i'm new to this forum. 
I planning to make a jArduino too. Still reading a lot here....

I Want to ask, can you explain how to use LEDSEEDUINO 6 channel, connect to Arduino Mega 2560 ? And How you connect the same color of LED (like 7 Led RB x 2channel ) to be controled to jArduino ?
From what I read, Ledseeduino using  CH1 = PWM pin 2, CH2 = PWM pin 3, CH3 = PWM pin 4, etc , and jArduino using PIN 7,8,9,10,11,12,13
Can you give me example if CH1 and CH2 for LED RB which controlled using jArduino pin 10

A lot of Thanks, and sorry for my english.
Jun

I'll draw you a diagram as soon as I can but it's probably going to be Friday before I get the chance!

Here is a diagram for the LEDSEE LEDSEEDUINO shield.  It is fairly easy to connect.  If you want to use more than one channel for the same colour simply feed two channels form the same PWM pin.

I cut the pins off the bottom of the shield and stuck it to my case using double sided tape.  It doesn't seem to get warm and so far hasn't needed any extra cooling.

Here is a diagram to explain the switch that confuses so many people!  Leave in position 1.

As far as I know you should be able to use multiple sets of these drivers.  I've split the PWM signal in two for my royal blues and whites and they work fine.

Hi,

So I am a little bit confused with connecting my leds to the ledseeduino, ur picture of connecting explained allot untill i want to connect my psu. My psu is 13.5v / 29.6A 400w. I want to connect at least 325 leds hahah.

My main setup is psu -> resistor 1ohm -> 4 leds serie etc etc. So if I connect my psu to the ledseeduino i am entering 13.5v and 29.6a if I solder it to 1a output on the ledseeduino, do I still need to place the resistor from the ledseeduino -> resistor 1ohm -> 4 leds serie -> back to ledseeduino.

I have around 250 blue leds can i connect these all paralel to the ledseeduino like my setup is now?

Sorry I do not know allot anymore about electronics haha.

Any help would be nice.

Raymon

Reduce the number of LEDs - with a 13.5v PSU and a ledseeduino driver you will be able to run a maximum of 3 LEDs per channel.  If you are going to put a resistor in, it goes between the driver and the LEDs not between the PSU and the driver.
