doesn't work that way w/ these drivers..Hello, guys.
I'm having some difficulties on wiring this TC with these drivers.
I know I have to wire the gates of the mosfets inside.
I have 4 of these drivers, each driver controls a channel of 10 high power leds 3W
How can I wire them, does anyone have any info or diagram?
Thx a lot!
Need to feed 10V to the TC-420 in the normal manner..
Then you will get 10V PWM-ed output..
Bypassing the mosfets only works w/ 5V PWM drivers..
NOTE OF CAUTION..do not exceed 10v..may burn out the driver. Some Meanwells are quite sensitive to this..
as a test jut use a 9v battery for the TC-420 power supply..
hook the outputs to the correct wires on the Meanwell..
SECOND NOTE: Never did it but see no issue w/ theory..
TC-420 can be powered w/ only 9V's that I do know..
10 would be no problem. Find a good 10V switching power supply.
no need for common grounding.
A few more things that need to be said. Figured a new post is best:
Most of the time those drivers do not "dim to zero" output... so you need a timer to unpower the driver..
also best to not go below 10% dimming b/4 the timer cuts the driver. You can get a "flash" at power shut off as the driver dumps its capacitors..
just replace the power supply and pot w/ a 10V powered tc-420.. you'll be the first afaict..
