The LED Current Controller is a switching controller that ensures a constant current supply to all the LED lights in a model.
Worries about using the right resistor value, or voltage to protect the LED’s from burning are a thing of the past with the LED Current Controller. No resistors are needed as the LED lights are connected directly to the controller board which regulates the proper current flow to the LED’s.
The LED Current Controller can be powered from a 4V – 28V (1S – 6S) external power source or directly from the receiver.
The LED Current Controller also eliminates the need for special control boards to turn the LED lights on or off as it can connect directly to a receiver channel with digital output or existing switching module where the lights can be controlled from the radio. You can also use an external switch which further simplifies the installation and wiring of multiple LED’s in your model.
The LED Current Controller is available in five different configurations to match the LED’s used. To select the proper current controller its current rating should closely correspond to the total rated current of the LED’s in continuous operation. Of course, the cooling of the LED’s is crucial, so in case of doubt, a lower current should be chosen.
Regulated Output Current:
300 mA / 500 mA / 750 mA / 1000 mA / 1500 mA in the respective version
Minimum Voltage Difference:
approx. 0.6V at 1000 mA, so the input voltage must only be 0.6 V higher than the LED voltage at the output
The output can be switched on and off with a digital signal, no further switch is necessary.
The permissible switching voltage is between 3 V and 28 V.
If the switching function is not needed, the switching input is connected directly to the positive voltage input.
