In short, I want to build a device/system to shed light on animals for optogenetic experiment, or to trigger light-sensitive channels. And yes, each LED is rated for 700mA. I bought from here: http://www.luxeonstar.com/Red-627nm-10mm-Square-CoolBase-LED-102-lm-p/sr-05-d2050.htm
Total 90 LEDs in my system. I am going to use this system to shed light on animals with options that
- turn all LEDs on/off, of course
- set a time period. I believe the software of Arduino has this function
- set frequency and pulse duration for pulsatile illumination
- if I can adjust the light strength incidentally. that’ll be great, although I know I can add additional dimmer to achieve this goal.
I don’t have any electrical or wiring experience at all. But the facility in my lab will help me do that.
I really appreciate your help!
Does ‘63A’ mean 63 amp?
Yes. I take it you have no electronics experience ? Please give us a more detailed project objective. I understand you to mean EACH led is rated for 700mA , correct ? Do you have any electrical or wiring experience at all ?
