I always wanted to create the illusion of waking up to a day of bad weather *g*There will also be 40W worth of controlled COB spots, so lightning brightness shouldn't be an issue.
The whole circuit will take a mean power of 12V*(mean current).
So? Yes, of course 12V DC. But PWM controlled, so there is an on-duty and a mean current.At sone points in this thread DC has also been used as a contrast to "switching PWM fast enough so tgat the system cannot be described with static full-on/full-off states anymore".
An Arduino Nano with a 220Ohm resistor between the pin and the gate of the IRLZ44N.If I remember correctly, the gate would be saturated after some time in the order of 10^-5 - 10^-6 seconds (though I am not sure I calculated that correctly), so at least at the higher Arduino PWM frequencies, this might matter. I do not own an oscilloscope to test that.Should be very similar to the Adafruit PCA9685 breakout I am going to use eventually.
