till now I tried a lot of different wirings to control a LED Strip (one color at the moment) with a MOSFET connected to an Arduino.
- Arduino Nano 328P on Pin 3
- LED Strip with 12+ common anode
- 12 V DC for the LED Strip
- MOSFET IRFZ44N / IRLZ44N
I tested my code with a single LED on the port I used in the code ← works, even with PWM
After that, I wired it up as attached. The Strip is connected 12V+ to the common anode. Ground(blue) is connected with the MOSFET drain and source to ground of power supply.
My problem is, that there is no reaction to the arduino pin. I tried first with IRFZ44N but that MOSFET needs more than 10V+ to fully switch through. So I tried the IRLZ44N as logic MOSFET. This should work with the delivered 5V from the Arduino.
Maybe u guys can help me to fix this
