I made my own LED
fixture well over a year ago. I had driven the LED
's at 1amp (1000mah) however just recently drove it up to 1350mah
Just wondering if anyone else out there has used these drivers beyond their rated current?
Reason being, is I can't keep a foreground plant alive. I've tried dwarf hair grass, and glosso are the two I've tried.
10K Ohm Linear Potentiometer
1 $3.50 USD $3.50 USD
1 $10.00 USD $10.00 USD
Arctic Alumina Thermal Adhesive
1 $7.00 USD $7.00 USD
Bulk Wire (White)
15 $0.25 USD $3.75 USD
CREE XP-G R5 Cool White LED
with 40į, 60į, or 80į degree Lens
(Lens Color: Black, Lens Width: 80 Degree)
12 $5.50 USD $66.00 USD
Mean Well ELN-60-48D dimmable driver
1 $34.00 USD $34.00 USD
I never did get around to installing the optics, because the light is only about 3-4 inches from the surface, and its a one way install - Once they're on, they don't come off.
the XP-G LED
's can go to 1.5 amps. Just wondering if I can adjust the SV2 to that level without the Driver popping.
Let me know!
