I am possibly looking for some advice,
I am hoping to make a touch screen led dimmer, wanting to run leds at various times or to dim at various times for an aquatic lighting.
I have been told on a previous post that i could add a NPN transistor or an N-channel MOSFET, to control the dimming, I have looked through google and can't seem to see how to install this on the board, If there is a post some one can point me to on how to install it it would be appreciated, another thing would be do i need to add 2 if i am wanting to run a 2 channel lighting system?
Also instead of wiring direct to the board i was hoping to add some screw terminal connections again i do not know how to keep it on the board or where to place them.
I have listed below the items i am looking at buying.
There is a 4 channel sheild, would this need any modification to get this to do what i want, npn transisters included etc.
or would it be simple enough for me to just put clips/transisters on the board.
I am hoping to add the rtc to keep the time, and to set off the lighting/dimming when required, however would i need to add anything extra to get it to keep the settings for the light sequence/touch screen controls ect.
Any help is appreciated, I'm hoping to do the code work rather than the hard ware work but am also wanting to learn.
