DIY LED Planning and Parts
I'm looking at making a DIY LED for a 40 Breeder and I've picked out a few components and am trying to figure out a few more for what I am planning for. I know I want to use the Bridgelux EB Gen 2 LED strips that I plan on mounting to a small heatsink and then under a wood fixture I have an idea for. The Bridgelux only come in 3000, 3500, 4000, 5000, and 5700K temperatures - because of this I wanted to add in some RGB or coloured LED strips that can run at the 20V and 700ma the bridgelux do to make it easier to run. I'm hoping this will add some of the red and blue that might be missing from the Bridgelux. Anyone have an idea on what I could use for this?
I'm also trying to figure out what kind of power supply, drivers and dimming I need, I want just basic dimming with a timer. For this I'm looking at Meanwell LDDs, a Meanwell powersupply, and the TC420 for dimming and timer.
I have 5.25 amps at 20V for the Bridgelux LEDs plus the RGB or coloured strips.
Is there a board for the LDDs that I could use for multiple channels?
