Arrow Driver built for 445nm A140 Diode

This is my latest circuit for my 445nm A140 Diode. I am posting to give ideas maybe to people looking to build a linear driver. I am also looking for any suggestions for next design (anything to add or change).

Parts:

-LM317t Adjustable voltage regulator attached to TO-220 Heatsink using Arctic Silver and Screw
-25 ohm Rheostat (best pot i can get from radioshack)
-3x15ohm 1x10ohm 1x2.2ohm in parallel = 1.55ohm(wanted precisely 980ma max) also helps with heat because only 1/4watt each
-1N4001 Diode
-Axial Lead 47uF 35w Electrolytic Capacitor
-PC Board Terminals (new awesome discovery I made)

hope someone is helped by this and that yous like the design...

Default Re: Driver built for 445nm A140 Diode

That's a funny way to wire up the potentiometer...
I myself usually just connect the middle pin and one of the outer pins, but not all three!

I don't know what anselm means by that. All the drivers has that connections, no worry.
I don't see any difference wiring just the middle and the left or right pin.

Default Re: Driver built for 445nm A140 Diode

Heres my driver layout. its a simple LM317 regulator as shown. the only modifications are a TO-220 diode on the input (to prevent reverse connection) and a poor man's TTL via a mosfet shorting the output.
Sadly I dont have the board I made anymore (I junked it as I dont use linear drivers anymore).
Here is the board layout:



And the thread where I posted a schematic (Except a resistor is now used on the gate, board mound rather then external):

why not LM317 instead of Flexdrive?

Id post a PCB file if I could figure out how to upload it on the forum..

EDIT: I noticed this was an old revision of the PCB.. which has a trace error on it (the output isnt connected).
It was still layed out simular to this, just the error needed to be fixed. best not to use this one.

Default Re: Driver built for 445nm A140 Diode

just rename the pcb file's extension or zip it.

Connecting it like you have it doesn't change anything to the way I do it.
For it to work, you really only need to connect the middle pin and one of the outer pins.
You can connect the middle pin to the other outer pin, but it doesn't accomplish anything.

Nice set up, you have done it all correct, a pot may be connected like that it's no problem at all.
the only way you could improve this is to put it on a purpose made ckt board for it.

Good Job

Thank you very much I was feeling quite disappointed as this is my best driver to date and I felt proud of its layout, design and neatness. Yet you are the first to say anything good about it! Thanks for the post

Man.. your driver is very neat! Thats the reason all that discussion started on this page (about other drivers and so). Looking professionally built driver like yours inspire us to make our own. GOOD JOB!

Default Re: Driver built for 445nm A140 Diode

I think there's a problem with using 1/4 W resistors in parallel like that.

Ignoring the rheostat, lets just consider the resistors - and specifically, it's the 2.2 I'm worried about.

The problem is, that your 2.2 Ohm resistor is going to shoulder MORE of that than all of the other resistors combined. ALL of the other resistors parallel to 3.3 Ohms. Add the 2.2 Ohm, and you get a final resistance of 1.32 Ohms (good so far)

Wattage @ 2.2 Ohm Resistor: 1.25^2 / 2.2 = 0.71 W
Total wattage @ all other resistors in parallel: 1.25^2 / 3.3 = 0.47 W

I won't bother to dissect each of the other resistors, because I think they're fine. But that 2.2 Ohm resistor is going to be handling about 0.7 W of power dissipation, which is way beyond it's 1/4 W rating.

Can we get a look at the bottom of the driver, so us noobs can see exactly how everything is hooked up?
