Dimming LEDs


I want to be able to dim multiple LEDs. It appears as though the servo controller only offers a single channel that supplies PWM output. However, is it possible to use the other channels and dim LEDs by oscillating on/off output through software? Is the servo controller able to handle this many instructions? Alternatively, is there another controller that would allow more PWM outputs?



Hi, Dennis.

I do not think creating a PWM-like signal by turning channels of the Maestro on and off would work well to dim LEDs. It might be easier to use something like an Arduino or our A-Star to PWM some MOSFETs. Alternatively, you might consider using those controllers to send signals to LED drivers like the OctoBrite DEFILIPPI.
