Re: Reverse Polarity Switching

Hi The first question that needs answering is... Do you really need to change polarity i.e. positive becomes negative etc? Or is it a matter of switching each LED? The pivot LED (lower right) will always be lit White (or Red depending on period modelled of the shunt signal). Reversing DC polarity is...

Re: Strip LEDs

Its almost impossible to give a detail value of resistance for a certain percentage reduction. Trail and error is really the only way... Try initially a 5K (5,000 Ohm) resistor in series with the positive lead. If still too bright try a 10K (10,000 Ohm) resistor in series. If still too bright add th...

Strange how we always assume people are not going to get professional help :D My neighbour has just run an armoured cable from his garage into his new shed. A sparky then arrived and attached both ends. Nothing strange at all. The OP stated in post #1 that he was going to undertake the works - "I c...
