I know enough to be dangerous


things with engines or electricity.

  • Wow, ^^^^ that's an answer. Thanks for the info and anticipating the follow up. =)

  • On page 2 of the datasheet there is semicircular graph depicting viewing angle. I didn't see any kind of units for the curves that range from 100-0-100 in increments of 25. Can anyone clarify what units are being used? The way I read that figure is the viewing angle changes depending on your distance from the led with 50 "somethings" yielding a 20* viewing angle. Is this cm, m or other? Thanks!

  • Dude, if I fart, YOU'RE going down...

  • Man, working on a Mac has never been described as back-breaking work... UNTIL NOW.

  • Another way that isn't as risky as diagonal cutters near your wires: use a staple puller. The kind with the jaws and opposing "teeth". the narrower set of "teeth" fits exactly over the connector and you don't run the risk of accidentally severing the wires. Shaving the retention tabs seems more convenient for a battery that in and out of a device though.

  • depending on how many LEDs you plan to use, this:
    will work for you since it is simple to hook up and you can "gang up" 2 or more of the channels per LED for more current. HTH

  • You are looking for this:

  • i hate to break it to you, but the transmitter you are using is ASK (amplitude shift keying) This module is a transceiver for FSK (FREQUENCY shift keying). If you had been able to get them to work, well, they don't talk to each other.
