I have looked around online for a simple solution to this issue and haven’t found it yet: I want to put a set of high power DIMMING LED headlights on my drone.
I want to use RC/PWM to control high power LEDs with 7.5 amps total current. The power supply is 4S lipo so the input voltage is around 16.
I found that I could use a buck boost converter to control voltage out with a mini-pot so I thought for sure that there would be a PWM controller that would allow me to use the RC signal to vary the voltage output. So before I knew much more I bought these motor controllers which I am sure will do the job if I can give them the proper pwm:
Then I learned that RC/PWM and control pwm are very different. One of the INAV developers said I might be able to use a DAC to convert the RC/PWM to voltage and then use that to control the motor controller.
Then I saw some of the posts that are on this site and thought that someone here must have done this before on a robot, right?
SO NOW THE QUESTION: IS THERE A COMPACT CONTROL CIRCUIT (MAYBE A SMALL H BRIDGE DESIGN) THAT WILL ALLOW ME TO USE RC/PWM (SERVO CONTROL) TO CONTROL 16 VOLTS INPUT VOLTAGE AND GET VARIABLE OUTPUT VOLTAGE UP TO 7 OR SO AMPS OF CURRENT???
