I once had all the modules and all accessories together and wanted to ask if it is possible to create a small list of what is controlled with what in Ferduino Board
so that my understanding grows.
there would be then
Osmosis regulation
water levels in the basin and in the technique the skimmer the dc pump all flow pumps dosing pumps temperature sensors various controllable aquarium LED lamps etc

This is what I’ve buy
- 4 pieces DIN 5 pin socket
- 1 piece 12 Volt power supply (Arduino)
- 1 piece Buzzer Module CP08014
- 1 piece of RFM12B radio modules
- 5 pieces RJ45 sockets
- 1 piece CD74HC4067 16 channel analog digital multiplexer
- 5 pieces DS18B20 temperature sensors
- 2 pieces BNC socket
- 1 piece PCF8575 remote 16 bit expander
- 2 pieces 12 volt relay
- 1 piece 3.2 "TFT touch screen
- 1 piece Arduino Shield
- 1 piece W5100 Ethernet shield
- 1 piece Arduino Mega 2560 R3
- 1 piece ADS1115 4 channel A / D converter
- 1 piece 3.2 "TFT shield
- 1 piece DS3231 RTC Clock
- 3 pieces screws shield
- 1 piece NodeMCU V3.2 ESP8266
- Various resistances
- 10 pieces latches plug
- 10 pieces jacks female
- 1 piece 8 channel logic level
- 1 PCA9685 16 Channel LED Controller
- 1 piece of NodeMCU shield
- Various hole grid boards

Hi!

Please be more specific. Your question is very generic.

Here you see the pin signed to each function.

Best regards.
Please do not PM me for support unless it is absolutely necessary.

I'll not write custom function to nobody unless you can pay for my job.

ok i try to describe it. From the Arduino board is the connection to a TCA9548A pwm extension on it is the PCA9685 16 bit pwm LED controller connected from there each one channel goes to a resistance then into the control cable of the lamps.
That would be only the LED control of the 10 LED channels
but how is each channel connected?
I have in PCA9685 +/- and pwm. because from my lamps ever only one cable comes out to control the channel
I have to connect the correct plus to each pwm channel to control the maximum current and normal minus and then via pwm the required control line

Hi!
Why this TCA is needed?
Please post pics of your LED drivers.
Best regards.

I dun know for 2 connections for SCL SDA
And what you mean what pics from my LED driver
Ore you mean schematic by the way from fritzing?

Hi!

I don't know the driver used in your LED light fixture so I can't tell you how to make the wiring.

The multiplexer for I2C BUS is not needed.

Please give enough information if do you want some help here.

Best regards.

I have now measured my lamps and the currents are as follows

Aqua Medic Aquarius Lights original voltage
0% = 3,26V
25% = 2,43V
50% = 1,62V
75% = 0,82V
100% = 0,00V

Aqua Medic Ocean Twin LED original voltage
0% = 1,80V
25% = 1,36V
50% = 0,90V
75% = 0,46V
100% = 0,00V

How can I now set the software for the LED control that 100% = 0 and 0% = 255 correspond
ore is it the same for Meanwell KSQs that they run with maximum Voltage at 0% and at 100% at zero Voltage

Hi!

To invert the logic change:

bool MeanWell = true;


To:

bool MeanWell = false;


To limit the voltage in 3.3 and 1.8 V use a voltage divider with resistors.
