has anyone used or have any idea if this would work for driving three strings of 12 3w high power leds i will be using a meanwell powersupply as well as using jardunio to interface with it.


It would probably work, but it's only rated to 30V, so you won't be able to drive 12 leds per string. More like 9-10 at the most.
