Ganoderma Posted November 2, 2007 Report Share Posted November 2, 2007 I am desperately trying to figure out how to wire my own LED lights together. I really need some help from you guys if you know how. First my purpose is to try and grow plants with these lights, then move on to animal lighting. First up are plants though. I am hoping for something at least remotely simple and not too expensive. my other goal is to get lots of bulbs in a small space (i realize heat issues). I am looking for the most light intensity and in to wavelength ranges. I want some for the 400-450nm range and the 650nm area (for photosynthesis). so lets go with these bulbs for example and discussion: http://files.intl-lighttech.com/pdf/GHB-3M50-RO.pdf the page states these statistics: Forward Voltage 2.0-2.5 volts (2.0 typical)Power 150 mWDC forward current 30 mAPeak forward current 195 mA I am wanting to use something very simple like this crappy drawing i did in paint. Is this even possible? Is it ok to scale up this, providing the power supply can handle the load? This example uses 24 lights. Say I wanted 100, 1000 or more. Probably need to start adding power supplies. Can I use a regular adapter that converts to say 5 V then add a resistor to cover the difference?
