so you have a little bit more experience in this then me. I have 2x 3watt royal blue leds on one driver and 10 watt white on its own driver . ive made pcbs and it consist of 4 blues and 1 white i have ten of these pcbs that im controlling of the TC 420.

Im only using 3 channels 1 ch for the blues and 2 ch,ch 3 for the white. The idea is 5 whites one half of the tank and 5 whites other half .what im trying to do is have the left side of the tanks whites leds to come on in the morning first with all the blues and in the evening have the right side of the tank white leds on before the night blue comes on.

Thanks in advance

If you using the 5V PWM tap off the TC-420 (basically a pre-programmed Aduino) then there should be no differences..EXCEPT (and since I'm not going through all the specs) if it uses 3.3V at the PWM outputs..
some common drivers like Meanwell LDD-L series won't work w/ 3.3V (see bluefish mini).. some LDD-l's will see meanwell spec sheets..
Most Meanwells specify a PWM frequency of 100Hz to 1KHz..

I have configured the display using
CTE32_R2 for the utft
mytouch as (6,5,4,3,2)

i have tried calibrating the display and i ran some example sketches which both seem to work perfectly fine (Quickdraw and touch buttons from the utouch library)

any idea what i might be doing wrong and how to fix this as i am just able to see date and time on the top bar.

@sajin.shivdas
On which Arduino IDE did you compile???
I use 1.8.5 which compile without errors.

Hi Vorlon,

I am using 1.8.9 version, it is not giving any error though its just warning messages and most of them are mainly related to the raw files, it allows to compile and upload the sketch successfully.
Kindly let me know if i have to change the Arduino 1.8.6 and like to compile it again.

Awaiting for your help and suggestion.
Regards

Hello,

i'm using the controller for 2 years and the uC runs perfect.

But an Webinterface / MQTT or something else was very great.
Anyone interested or has someone in use?!

Sorry for my bad english!!

Greetings, Florian.
