Hi all. I would love to get some tried and tested cube lights from the store but $70 shipping to the UK isn’t an option and there’s aways a nasty sting in the tail with the import duty.
I can get all kinds of different CREE LEDs from RS Components and i already have some optically clear epoxy for potting. I’m a digital engineer but I’m afraid my analogue knowledge is very poor so I wonder if I could get some answer to the following:
- Is the OpenROV 2.8 plug 'n play with the 2 PWM channels, i.e. just connect and they will work? Will they dim like the internal lights and can they be used independently of the internal lights?
- I believe the current limit is 700mA to avoid damage. What would be the best way to limit the current draw of the LEDs?
- What colour works best in salt water? Warm white, cool white? They are available in everything from 6000K to 2700K
Sorry, so many questions. It seems a bit cheeky when you guys have put so much research time in. I don’t suppose you’ve published the cube light circuits
