Details

Constant Voltage Amp Great for Micro-Controllers (this works great with the Arduino Micro-Controllers) Also works with RGB Controllers as an Amp

LED Power Repeater (Amplifier)
~~For 12V DC LED Strips or other 12v DC Devices like: relays, motors, lights, valves or anything that needs on/off or PWM Switching of 1-3 channels
~~Input:  Red/Black Wires.
~~Input Voltage: 3v - 12v (suggested) (+) is common and each of the 3 channels have separate (-) so you can use 1, 2 or all 3 of the channels
~~Output: Color Coded Wires great for connecting to RGB flexible LED strips. (Common (+) Anode)
~~You can connect and control up to 2A/Ch of output (2x rolls of our standard output RGB flex strip).
~~Supports PWM (Pulse-Width-Modulation) control 0-100% Dimming / Full Color Control
~~You can stack amps (2x repeaters connected = 4A/Ch) (4x repeaters connected = 8A/Ch) (you can also stack channels if you are using single color strips 2x channels = 4A 3x channels = 6A)

Simply connect 3x of your Micro-Controller PWM output pins to the RGB input of this amp then connect the (+) input to the +3.3 or 5v output on your Micro-Controller.  Then, connect a 12v DC power supply to the Red (+) and Black (-) input wires on the amp and connect your RGB LED strips to the Output.

In your program you will want to write (ledPin, LOW); to turn on the device and (ledPin, HIGH); to turn it off (so you may have to map your output ie: val = map(val, 0, 255, 255, 0; if your code is designed for 255 = On)

Additional Information

Suggested Uses

For Controlling RGB or 1-3x single color flex strips with a Micro-Controller

Great for an easy way to control your lights with custom software or via timers, motion detectors, home automation software, internet or iPhone

these are also great for standalone control of lights using low current magnetic reed/door switches or motion detectors

For instructions visit Fritzing.org or you can search http://www.arduino.cc for PWM and/or RGB for software and instructions

In your program you will want to write (ledPin, LOW); to turn on the device and (ledPin, HIGH); to turn it off

 

~~For 12V DC LED Strips or other 12v DC Devices like: relays, motors, lights, valves or anything that needs on/off or PWM Switching of 1-3 channels
~~Input Voltage: 3.3v - 12v (suggested) (+) is common and each of the 3 channels have separate (-)
~~Output:  Common (+) Anode  (you can use 1, 2 or all 3 of the channels)
These units will turn on the 12v output with a input voltage of  3 volts or higher

Product Highlights

 

follow the instructions in this picture then write to your output Pins to control the lights/devices
Arduino Code
analogWrite(PinX, 255)       // = Off   (for 0--100% (PWM) LED Lights)
analogWrite(PinX, 0)           // = On   (for  0--100% (PWM) LED Lights)
or
digitalWrite(PinX, HIGH); // = Off    (for Relays or Lights with just on/off control)
digitalWrite(PinX, LOW); // = On      (for Relays or Lights with just on/off control)

Here are some code examples

int GreenPin = 10;                 // Digital Pin 10 Connected to G on Amp

int RedPin = 11;                   // Digital Pin 11 Connected to R on Amp

int a = 1200;     // Blue on Time
