I want to buy the hardware for my project and wanted to doublecheck if there are (most likely) mistakes in my planning before I spend money on wrong things.
What I want to do is control three different LED strips (1m each) with Max MSP & an Arduino UNO.
Already wrote the code in max, but this is my first project with hardware.
What I got so far:
- Arduino Uno
- 5m LED strip (12V) & power pack https://www.amazon.de/gp/r.html?C=2H2DFIAL57N39&K=A35NAEFF1HPTXI&R=ZWRXG4E0O8FS&T=C&U=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.de%2Fdp%2FB017IH628G%2Fref%3Dpe_386171_138588591_TE_item&A=PJCB5EHDGICBXAKH2N4VQJ53V7KA&H=MR8VGVI6WZURGSABI0H5IWMLKT0A&ref_=pe_386171_138588591_TE_item
Q1: Can I somehow use the power pack for all 3 strips? I know how I could connect the jumper cables with a battery, but don’t know how this works with the power pack.
What I think I need:
- 3 N Channel Mosfets L series that it can be driven from the 5V arduino
- jumper cables to connect Mosfet + Arduino + LED
Q2: Can anyone advise me on which specific Mosfet I could use?
thanks so much for your help!
