Im going to attempt to create a LED light bulb and need some guidance. I’ve attached an image to better illustrate what Im trying to achieve and I hope this is the right topic for this post.
The socket that the light bulb screws into is 120 volts AC and I need a way to reduce this current to control the LEDs from a prototyping board I’ll create.
I had 2 thoughts in mind?
using a solid state relay found here:
possibly using resisters? 6,800 ohm (but this doesn’t seem practical & would probably destroy everything)
Would 1) above be the right way to go?
Each LED is a 5mm 4 pin RGB, with 20mA and forward voltage of 2.0 for the lowest one which is red.
Right now Im in the theory stages and have many questions one being the safest way to reduce the current for the leds (and the proto board) within a lightbulb fixture.
Any suggestions or guidance would be greatly appreciated!!!
