The LED1000 is a 32-output dimmable LED controller. This Phidget connects to your computer through a VINT Hub and requires an external power supply.
This Phidget is a smart device that must be controlled by a VINT Hub. For more information about VINT, have a look at the VINT Primer. You can use a Phidget Cable to simply and easily connect the two devices. Here's a list of all of the different VINT Hubs currently available:
|Image||Part Number||Price||Number of VINT Ports||Controlled By|
|HUB5000_0||$60.00||6||Local Network (Ethernet or Wi-Fi)|
Use a Phidget cable to connect this device to the hub. You can solder multiple cables together in order to make even longer Phidget cables, but you should be aware of the effects of having long wires in your system.

This Phidget requires a power supply between 8 and 30V DC. We recommend that you use a 12V 2A DC power supply, as this should provide enough power for all 32 LEDs at the maximum current limit. Select the power supply from the list below that matches your region's wall socket type.

For an easy way to connect LEDs to this Phidget, you can use these 4-pin LED cables. Just cut the cable in half and solder the LEDs to the loose ends. Solder the red wire to the positive end of the LED (usually the longer one) and the black wire to the negative end. Since you get two connectors per cable, you'll only need eight of these cables in order to connect all 32 LED outputs.

Welcome to the LED1000 user guide! In order to get started, make sure you have the following hardware on hand:
Next, you will need to connect the pieces:
Now that you have everything together, let's start using the LED1000!
In order to demonstrate the functionality of the LED1000, the Phidget Control Panel running on a Windows machine will be used.
The Phidget Control Panel is available for use on both macOS and Windows machines.
To open the Phidget Control Panel on Windows, find the icon in the taskbar. If it is not there, open up the start menu and search for Phidget Control Panel
To open the Phidget Control Panel on macOS, open Finder and navigate to the Phidget Control Panel in the Applications list. Double click on the icon to bring up the Phidget Control Panel.
For more information, take a look at the getting started guide for your operating system:
Linux users can follow the getting started with Linux guide and continue reading here for more information about the LED1000.
After plugging the LED1000 into your computer and opening the Phidget Control Panel, you will see something like this:
The Phidget Control Panel will list all connected Phidgets and associated objects, as well as the following information:
The Phidget Control Panel can also be used to test your device. Double-clicking on an object will open an example.
The LED1000 is a dimmable LED controller. With this Phidget you can control the voltage, current limit, and duty cycle of up to 32 LEDs.
You can use your Control Panel to explore your Phidget's channels.
1. Open your Control Panel, and you will find the following channels:
2. Double click on a channel to open an example program. Each channel belongs to the DigitalOutput channel class:
In your Control Panel, double click on "LED Driver":
Before you open a Phidget channel in your program, you can set these properties to specify which channel to open. You can find this information through the Control Panel.
1. Open the Control Panel and double-click on the red map pin icon:
2. The Addressing Information window will open. Here you will find all the information you need to address your Phidget in your program.
See the Phidget22 API for your language to determine exact syntax for each property.
You can have multiple LEDs hooked up to a single channel on the LED1000, (for example, a short string of LEDs) to reduce the amount of wiring, although you won't be able to control the lights individually. When using multiple LEDs on a single channel, you may need to increase the voltage limit for that channel. If the LEDs are too dim at the maximum voltage, you should spread them out to other channels.
If you're using high-current LEDs, you should spread your load evenly across the board to avoid having one of the controller chips overheat. There are two controller chips, each controlling the channels on one half of the board.
|1||0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15|
|2||16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31|
