LED fX - LED Lighting Effects Controller

Overview

ED fX - LED Lighting Effects ControllerThe LED fX is an extremely simple and effective design - specifically engineered to control 16 individual output ports. Each port has an LED attached to it, allowing for attractive effects to be achieved by running customized code on the built-in PIC processor.

The unique design allows for the selection of various lighting effects stored on the processor by selecting a routine from the onboard DIP switch. The processor will run the built-in routine selected and display the output on the LEDs.

The LED fX PC board is a high quality, double-sided board, complete with solder masks on both sides, plated holes along with a high-contrast silk-screen labeling component positions. Compact in size at only 3 15/16" x 3 15/16" (100mm x 100mm) and ready to fit into standard size project cases.

The LED fX is available as a fully assembled and tested product, as a kit of components you can build at home, or just the bare board which you can supply your own components for. Average assembly time of the kit can be accomplished by the novice builder in 60 to 90 minutes.

Effects are individually selected by setting the programming DIP switch. 64 selections are available from the DIP switches, although not every effects chip will have 64 different selections available for viewing. Various effects chips are available and will include details on the effects along with the code necessary to access that effect.
