Lighting Question

Postby MEATLOAFr » Fri Feb 01, 2013 4:57 am

Is there any software out there that I can plug in what I'm using (number of bulbs) to tell me what resistors I will need or if I have to much power going thru?

There is a website that can tell you what resistor for each LED. but it assumes single LEDs. So if you run your LEDs in Parallel it can really help.

This one might help in other circumstances
