Buckpuck Led Driver Schematic


The BuckPuck is self-contained and designed to match its output with the electrical characteristics of the LED(s). Am I right that placing the potentiometer between the BuckPuck and LED (which I have tried and does work to give a full range of dimming) would waste a good amount Thanks! I can no longer tolerate non buck inefficiency. 03/20/2014 - 11:25:51 AM Reliable Driver i have bought hundreds of these buckpucks because they are small, easy to use and affordable. check over here

How about an overall voltage drop reading then devide by 32(# of leds) That may get us into the ballpark for requirements. Yes, my password is: Forgot your password? You would think that with about a 2v drop across each led, you would need quite almost 65v to light the set. because eagle has different footprint

hello every body i have a big problem with this ct. http://www.ledsupply.com/blog/understanding-led-drivers/

Which components can I remove to get a non PWM model? The upper limit of PWM frequency is about 2kHz, but I think 1kHz would be the optimum.

Have tried to build a prototype of your offered driver – it works fine from 18V, thank you. Short circuit between REF and CTRL switches LEDs off.

Led Power Calculator There is an input for an external dimmer pot but the datasheet says it can also use PWM from a MCU. #3 Like Reply Jan 27, 2010 #4 SgtWookie Expert Led Driver Calculator Again very fun project to build.

I also Include a shot of a 555 based dimming unit running at around 1.5khz that works just fine with this.

Thanks very much for sharing


So that leaves the other parts in the power side to the circuit (R10, R11, L1, and D3).

  • I have done quite a bit of practical circuit building including using transistors (am a high school physics teacher) but never had any formal electronics training and am not good on

  • Come a long way since the early days of led lighting.
  • Lets get started with the most basic question… What type of circuit should I use?

When each LED is receiving the same current it helps eliminate issues like thermal runaway. I have a boost power supply to run it off of a 12VDC battery. Collection Intro Intro: Simple Buck LED Driver With PWM InputHigh-power LEDs over 1W are now quite inexpensive. this content Can you pull out 1 led for testing?



for switching you used a n channel mos. Dimmable Led Drivers It lets you use a lower powered zener diode.

If the signal MOSFET turns on, the BPJ transistors' bases should receive 10V and cause TP2 to be 10V. increase to burn and i can not know what happened is any one can help me i need this ct.

Eventually the comparator flips back again, and the cycle starts over. The output current will be zero when the control signal is high. I'm afraid that you won't be able to drive your 12v array from a 12v battery using a BuckPuck. The source of the PWM control is not limited to microcontrollers.

Note that the input needs to source a minimum of 4.75VDC into a 1.5Kohm input impedance. C1 can also be anywhere from 1 to 10 uF. I have checked the connections several times and used the different possible configurations of connections to the 3 pins on the pot. This is just a guess, but if you were running 1 amp through the pot - it might not be working properly anymore, or maybe it was not quite right to

It has been found that the method described above yields a far more accurate measurement. excpcept maybe the light.
