Long time no talk. I am thinking of selling my set of custom WL e2 builds. I am finishing up my degree and need to pay off debt to the school. I want these to go to a good and caring owner.
Rare set of rare builds in rare hosts! All these are in very very good condition.
I have a...
My car keeps giving me more and more problems. I recently finished a modded WL e2 445nm build that should be pumping out 1.3W ish and I am thinking of selling it. I really did not want to sell this. Although in order to sell it at the price it deserves, I need to confirm the power...
Well...at 3.7V more like 3A with 80% efficiency. I was not thinking correctly about the driver when I posted that. Flaminpyro set it so I assume yes on the test load lol...I trust him. And yes, he cut me a custom hs for between the driver and aixiz which is pressed into the host. The m140 when...
So I built another 445nm in an e2 host...the circuit goes like so
V+, flexdrive @ 1450mA, LD+
V+, Tact Switch, MOSFET Gate
LD-, MOSFET Drain, Case
MOSFET Source, Case
MOSFET Gate, 10K resistor, MOSFET Source
NOTE that Flexdrive is set at 1450mA and the resistance while on of the...
Wait...if a mosfet will always have current running through it...doesn't that mean that if it sits off for a while, it will drain the battery?
would that work?^^^
Got it! now p vs n type MOSFET...n type to switch ground AFTER the flexdrive and p type to switch the power BEFORE the flexdrive...
Which is a better idea...switching the flexdrives input voltage...right?
That is half the battle! Thank you...now how do I tell what current will run through the switch that needs to be limited at ~50mA?
It would be
[ V+ to switch, base ]
[ V+ to collector ]
[ Emitter/Drain to V+ of the flexdrive ]
Case will be negative.
Lol guys...thanks for the pointers...I have done quite some research. I want to know what specs of the transistors do what...I figured someone on here may have some better descriptions that are less technical than the ones found online. I need this to be an on/off switch, that is all...the least...
How do I do this! I have google'd and done so much research. I am doing a high power 445 build with a micro flexdrive in a WL e2 and it will be pulling 3A at one point. I cant have 3A going through a 50mA rated switch!!!
I've come to the conclusion that a MOSFET will do the trick...but how do I...
