None of that sounds promising..
BUT in an off the cuff thinking.. the possibility of using 12V DC halogens (up to 24V) is somewhat a possibility.
40W may be the limit..
The spec sheet for the MOSFET in the TC is available on line. The 4A limits is for "dc" .. i.e no dimming-ish..
You may be able to exceed that w/ adding small heat sinks to the MOSFETS..NO guarantee.
There are "electronic-y things" that I'm no accounting for like surge currents ect.
There is a tc-423 that runs on AC..
There really shouldn't be any (or much) voltage drop on the MOSFET switches AFAICT though in my limited understanding on switching efficiency may drop a during dimming.
Thing is it's 10V PWM NOT 10 V analog..if using the MOSFET pass through circuitry and a 10V supply.
So split up the Pucks on separate channels is looking like my only real recourse. I really didn't want to have to tie up 2/3 channels for the pucks, but if I must, I must right
As to the 0-10v, I was thinking of using this? https://us.amazon.com/KNACRO-voltage...A631JFFSKT6318
There was another thread, that mentioned its use for Flos, here. https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/1...-0-10v-dc.html
He said he had to use a 14v supply to get it to work though.
I forgot it was PWM on the 12v, so do you think that will dim the halogens? Or am I SOL on that?
So right now my Cobs, are on a 40v supply, with LDDs being hooked to the TC420 to control them. Would LDDs be able to handle the Pucks? If not used at full power, and ran in series on a 1500 LDD? I have the extra LDDs, would like a 5 LDD board in that case, but thats easy enough to swap. So run the CoBs and the Halogens off the same Power Supply, I have the headroom. Would that work?
Tc423 looks nice, but its an entirely separate controller, which is something I am trying to steer away from. I would prefer to be able to control the E27 with a 0-10v whether PWM or Analog, I know I seen something like that, but couldn't find it in stock anywhere.
Jeff what about this?
Would this work and how would I wire it to a TC420?
well apparently cant link to no ebay links allowed.. Strange lol. Anyway here is the name, AC Light Dimmer Module 1 Channel 3.3V 5V Logic Pwm 220V 110V Arduino AC 50 60hz
And why are ebay links removed but not Amazon??? thats, lol.
