Hello, I really like your build. I am currently following your thread. I am new to forums and coding.
I am in the process of making the controller for my college project and a friends 5x2 reef tank. I have built a Led light for the display tank 42 Cree XP-Gs with optics.
I have a few questions for you.
Arduino Mega 2560 R3
16x2 with buttons & 20x4 LCDs
2 Dallas Temp Probes. (Tank and Light)
4 x Meanwell ELN-60-48D with 10k pots
I really like your 20x4 screen layout on the reef led controller website. Do you have the code for that?
I originally started with the 16x2 LCD just keep things simple until I understand coding :s but I think the 20x4 would be more suitable for my application + the fish look cool on the display. Dose it matter if don't use the Fuge and fans for now?
And just to clarify, I can connect 2 Meanwell's to each channel each with pot or just 1 pot for the 2 drivers?
I followed you posts for ages with ketchupoy's, now bought all the hardware, but I'm no longer able to find the sketch, or the diagrams for wiring the arduino with the 4 channel relay, meanwell 48d's, time keeper, and lcd. It was the ramp up/down, with a wavemaker (i think) and a 2 line lcd.
I agree with boreland and the inability to download them. They stopped working sometimes yesterday morning early cause I know I downloaded them at work on friday morning but couldn't do it saturday morning. With the PWM ports for the LCD screen, it is not going to cause any problems to connect 4 dimmable drives in any of the same holes where the LCD is already connected?
Hello, I have been on your website and see you had a libraries zip file for the arduino controller, when i went to download them it told me the page could not be found (http://www.reefledcontroller.com/arduino-0021-reef.zip) is there any way i can obtain theses libraries.
Congrats on the great website which I am glad I managed to find and follow. I have a fishroom and intend to convert it all on leds using with meanwell P drivers. On your wiring diagram for the P type driver you indicate that you need a 10V power supply for the PWM. What I would like to ask is whether I would need a separate power supply for each driver or can I use a single 10V power supply to power a number of drivers?
Hi Reefninja, I'm needing a sketch for a Arduino Mega, 16x2 LCD, relays, RTC, ... kind of a typical reef controller setup (CAT 4101 x 4)LEDs. I tried to get it off your site, but the link doesn't go anywhere.. can you point me in a good direction for a recent sketch that people are using ?
