Using an Rpi to Control an Rgb Led

As rahulkar mentioned in his tutorial, LED control seems to be the "Hello World" of electronics. It's easy to set up, you learn a lot about how electronics work, and in the end, you've got a nifty little piece of hardware to show off to your friends - and it's pretty cool!This tutorial will be bare-basics, the idea being that you could use this tutorial as your first project in order to get a basic understanding of the Raspberry Pi, circuits, and programming. In particular, I will explain the code behind the program line-by-line for those of you who are new to Python. After this tutorial, you should have a grasp on how basic programs operate and be able to modify our code. In this tutorial, we're going to be using an RGB LED. The R, G, and B stand for red, green, and blue, respectively, and the single RGB LED actually contains three LEDs within the single bulb. These are the primary colors for light; that is, you can theoretically create any color of light using some combination of these three. Mixing pure red with pure blue will result in magenta, blue and green in cyan, while red and green make yellow and all three make white. Different hues can be made by mixing different intensities of the three primary colors. In reality, we will find that honing in on a particular hue with the Pi will take a bit of finessing and might not always work.Before we get started, some quick notes on circuits and how LEDs behave. When you buy an LED, you should see a bunch of writing on the back of the package showing technical specs. If you can't seem to locate any specs, try running a google search on the part's serial number. We are concerned with forward voltage (VF, measured in volts) and forward current (IF, measured in milliamps). Typical LEDs (that burn one color) will have one value for each of these variables. You may notice, however, that different color LEDs have different values. In particular, red seems to drop the lowest forward voltage while blue drops the highest. Likewise, your RGB LED will most likely have different values for the three colors. When buying your materials, you'll need to keep these values in mind so that you'll be able to choose the right resistors -- don't worry, we'll get there!You'll also notice that RGB LEDs have four leads instead of two. As I mentioned before, the RGB LED is actually a very small circuit consisting of three different LEDs. Now, this is where things can get a bit tricky. RGB LEDs come in two types: common anode and common cathode. On the common anode type, the longest lead is attached to the positive terminal and allows current to flow to all three LEDs inside while leads 1, 3, and 4 are are the ground leads for red, green, and blue respectively. On the other hand, common cathode types share a ground lead; the three shorter leads are each individually hooked up to the positive terminal in the same order. So, which should you use? As a beginner, I would stick with the common cathode types. Common cathodes will give you a better understanding of how the Raspberry handles outputs and of how circuits work, and while common anode types will still work with current sinking, it's a little bit more advanced.Resistors are important because they prevent the LED from sending too much current through your Pi, something that they will do if given the opportunity. This could result in you blowing your LED, frying a GPIO pin, and/or destroying your Pi. ALWAYS use a resistor when connecting outputs to the Pi, even if they are low-level. Typically, these LEDs can each handle up to 30mA of current, but we're going to keep them under 17mA. Why can't we go that high? The Pi can only supply so much current to the GPIO pins, and, again, drawing too much can cause serious damage. So how high can we go? The answer isn't super straight forward, but it can be deduced. According to eLinux, the GPIO pins are connected to the 3.3v rail, which is capable of supplying a maximum of 50mA at a time. This does not, however, mean that the rail has a regulator limiting it to 50mA. If allowed to do so, a circuit connected to this rail will continue to draw current past 50mA until something short circuits. Keeping all three pins at least below 17mA will ensure that our Pi will be sufficiently protected, even when all three colors are burning at once.The resistors you buy will depend on your individual LEDs. You'll need three resistors, one for each color. To calculate resistance, head on over to LEDCalculator.net. This website uses Ohm's law so you don't have to. Simply enter the supplied voltage (3.3v), the voltage drop (the forward voltage for the individual color), the current rating (stay at or below 16mA), and number of LEDs (in this case, treat each color as an individual LED). Do this for each color, changing the voltage drop appropriately. Now you've got the values for your resistors! Get one of each in the 1/4 watt size (wattage in this case measures the amount of heat the resistor will absorb before failing). Now we have everything we need. Let's get started!Technically, a solderless breadboard isn't required, but it makes things much quicker and easier. If you do choose to solder, however, I am going to assume that you have at least some basic knowledge of circuits and that the following diagrams will be more than enough to get you going.A solderless breadboard is used in prototyping because it allows you to easily move components around a circuit without having to solder and desolder. Believe me when I say that a solderless board can shave hours off even a simple project. On solderless boards, the positive and negative columns, called buses, can both connected to the positive and negative terminals on the supply. Using jumper wires, we can connect to these buses to form circuits. The columns between the two sets of buses, labeled A-E and F-J, are connected by rows, but these connections do not cross the middle divider. For example, columns A-E on row 1 make one rail, columns F-J on row 1 make another rail, and columns A-E on row 2 make a separate rail. Now that we understand that, let's talk a little bit about circuits. For this circuit, we need to connect the common cathode to a ground pin, and each of the three anodes to a different programmable pin through a resistor. In this case, we'll be using GPIO pins number 9, 11, 13, and 15 (there are two different naming conventions for the Pi's GPIO pins - this is using the "board" convention). Pin number 9 is a ground, so we'll connect our cathode to that, and then connect red, green, and blue to pins 11, 13, and 15. Once this is all setup, we can go ahead and test our circuit - we don't want a faulty circuit making us think that our code is wrong. To do this, disconnect the circuit from your Pi except for the ground connection and turn the Pi on. Once the OS has booted, start by taking the red wire from the breadboard and attaching it to pin number 1. This pin is not programmable and is always set to 3.3v, so when the red wire is connected, the red LED should come on. Do this for all three colors.Before we get into it, it's important to note that indentation is important in the Python language. Other languages use punctuation like brackets to tell the program the order to run things; Python uses indentation. Because of this, you may not be able to simply copy and paste the code from this page to your program as the formatting may not be completely preserved. Please feel free to follow along and write your own code as you go, or simply download my sample code here.If you're new to coding, then it's important to mention that there is no one way to write a program. People have their own style, but it mostly comes down to how you think about solving a problem. I will provide sample code and explain it line-for-line, but please know that this is not the only way to achieve the exact same result.Here, we import two built-in libraries - functions, variables, etc. that have already been defined and that we can call on.This is a Raspbian library that allows us to use Python to control GPIO pins.Now, we define some variables - which pins we'll be connecting to which RGB lead. This step isn't necessary, but it makes it easier to change pins if you need to.Here, we define a function. A function is a set of steps that the computer will execute in the order that we give to it. This particular function will require one variable in order to run: the number of the pin that we want to light up. We start our function off by referencing one of our libraries, GPIO. Then, we tell it that we want to choose a naming convention for the GPIO pins (of which there are two), so that the program knows which ones we're referring to. Then, we tell it to use the "board" convention (rather than the BMC convention), again using the GPIO library.Now, once again using the GPIO library, we tell the Pi that we want to use a pin. But first, we need to specify which pin and how we want to use it - input or output. Here, "pin" is the variable that will be plugged into blink(pin).Now that the pin has been set up, this line turns it on. You should recognize the syntax by now; here we're using the same variable "pin" and using the GPIO library to set the pin to a value of "high". In the case of GPIO pins, a "high" value results in 3.3v being passed, or "on", whereas a "low" value results in 0v being passed, or "off".Now we're going to define a function to turn lights off. It's going to look almost identical to the previous function, only we'll be setting the pins back to low.We need to define some functions specific to color using the functions we just made. Recall that we're using pins 11, 13, and 15 for red, green, and blue. We'll start with functions that turn lights on. With this type of function, we won't require any parameters, so the brackets stay empty; calling this function later in the program will simply execute it.Here, we give the "blink" function a pin number to use, 11. When we call redOn(), our blink function will begin executing with "pin" replaced by "redPin". Recall that, earlier, we set redPin equal to 11.Now we do the same thing for the rest of the colors.Remember that when dealing with light, yellow is made by mixing red with green, cyan using green and blue, magenta with red and blue, and white by combining all three.Finally, we write the functions to turn lights off. Again, the syntax will be similar to the functions above.Now we're ready to define our main function; a loop that will constantly ask for user input and react by calling various functions. In this case, the user will be able to turn colors on and off. This program is written so that it will only accept a few pre-specified inputs. Otherwise, it will do nothing and display a message to that effect.Again, we're not asking for any variables with this function, so the brackets stay empty. "while True" essentially says "while the program is running, do this", so it will run constantly until we quit.We define a new variable "cmd" to use later and set it equal to the user's input. It will also constantly prompt the user to choose an option.Now an "if" statement that will run only if the user input exactly matches the text within the quotation marks. Note that here we use two "equal to" symbols. In Python, and indeed most languages, a single "equal to" is used to change the value of a variable while doubles are used to compare whether or not variable values match each other."elif" stands for "else, if". This tacks onto the earlier "if" statement and adds new parameters, allowing us to create a chain of "else, if" statements easily.With our last "else" statement, if the user attempts to input anything other than one of the commands specified above, it will tell the user that it is an invalid command. The last thing the function needs is that "return" so the program knows when to loop.This is the last line of our code. When the program is run, this line will call the main function that we just defined and the loop will be set.And that's it! Now it's time to run the program. Navigate to the top menu bar and select Run -> Run Module, or press F5. You'll be asked to save your work before IDLE will run your program. Go ahead and type "red on" after the prompt and hit enter. The red light should come on! Note that before you exit your program, at the very least you should make sure that all of the colors have been turned off. I would recommend, however, that you run the GPIO.cleanup() function before you quit. This is a built in function that comes with the RPi.GPIO library and resets any pins that were used in the program. You can either modify this code to include a command that runs the GPIO.cleanup(), or you can press CTRLC to interrupt the program and then type GPIO.cleanup() directly into the user input.Please, feel free to ask any questions! I would be happy to help.

Do Rgb Led Strips Do Ultraviolet Light?
The blue element may emit some UV light that can excite fluorescent materials. If you want strong UV, you need dedicated UV LEDs.1. Hiding or covering annoying LED lights on computer and accessoriesI know these two tricks - one of them to cover any light, and the other to turn off the motherboard lights, specifically. Yes, nail polish. Just grab one with a dark color (black, deep blue, or alike), and put a little over the LED... That will probably dim the light a bit, but if you keep adding layers over layers of nail polish, you can completely turn it off after 3-4 polish applications. The good thing about it is that is super easy to apply, it dries out really quick, and you can remove it later using nail polish remover. If you are lucky, there might be an option in your motherboard's BIOS settings to turn off the LEDs. I know it depends on the manufacturer to put those options in there, but I think it's worth a shot to check the settings and find out. Some examples out there: How do I remove/stop an LED on the motherboard?, New motherboard, led lights always on, Turning off the onboard LEDs2. Help, which of these led zeppelin tshirts is better?In contrast to your first 2 replies, I would go with the other one. Love the typography and the monochrome. It's just Led Zep all over. Rock n roll!3. If you hate led zeppelinI do not hate them. I never actually listened listened to them so i can not really give out my opinion. I like Chevelle though, if its any close to zep :P4. How can a power a single led with a power supply?You will still need a resistor to limit the current as an LED is only rated for about 10 milliAmps (10mA). So if you have 3V and need 10mA the resistor is 3.0 / 0.010 = 300 ohms. If you use 15mA the resistor is 200 ohms, but will be brighter than with 300 ohms. If you really want a low intensity use 600 ohms to get 5mA5. What led to the downfall of Osho?before answering this question i would like to ask a question what is death? it can not be performed in a laboratories and same is truth about life ? Now coming to your answer death takes birth when one is born . so there are different stages in life. origin and demise are the two stages and in between these two there numbers of stages. without further illustration directly coming to point Osho is still very popular among the well read people who have come up off religion, caste , creed. No one can understand a person without knowing someone . so its better to understand osho without the hearing half baked informations.Just go through osho you will get your answer ....6. What is the difference between a 16-feet LED strip and a 32 feet LED strip?One is twice as long as the other. 16 times 2 equals 327. Oooo LED: 1080 or 720?Get the LG 32" because the 1080p is the picture quality and it is the best picture quality8. What circumstances led to rise the Hitler?A rise in nationalism and antisemitism and anti-bolshevism. Shame about losing the war. Demands of the Allies for crippling reparations payments. The ensuing bankruptcy of the German currency. Inability of the Weimar Republic to properly check the rise of extremist groups and halt their violence. Complete disillusionment with democratic processes and the people wanting a strong dictator.I am sure there are more, but these I think are the main reasons.9.

Some Questions About a RGB LED Strip Project That Im Planning to Do
You could use chainable RGB drivers like these:They are based on the P9813 chip and can be used with the FastLed library. You can find them on Aliexpress or eBay, if you search for "STM32 rgb".1. Powering up a WS2812 led strip with different power suppliesI am presuming that WS2818 is a typo. For the most part your setup sounds fine. The only thing I would change would be the connection between the LED strip and the Pi. WS281[x] chips, strictly speaking, need a 5V control signal to work properly. You might be able to control one or two LEDs at 3.3V (I've had mixed results), but I would be very surprised if you could do a metre. You should use something like a 3.3V to 5V logic level converter2. For this LED strip What type of batteries, # x battery holder, what parts I need, and what on/ off switch?You need some sort of 12V battery pack. Depending on how many feet, how long you need to run it, an how portable it needs to be, you may need AA or sub-C NiMh pack, or an SLA battery. Wire it with 22 or 20 AWG speaker type wire, and any convenient on-off switch.3. How to get 12v 5amps battery setup for LED stripAs Vladimir has stated, you will definitely want much more power than a 9V battery can supply. You will also want to ensure you do not waste lots of your energy through a resistor due to your supply voltage being much higher than your load voltage.If you want a mobile light box, either find yourself a lead acid or lithium ion battery pack that will supply the amount of current you are after for extended periods of time. Your circuit itself is not wrong besides the use of an 18V power supply to power a 12V load. At best, you would have 66% efficiency (12/18).AT 5 amps, you are going to need a heavy duty resistor. An ideal led supply would give it constant current, but that's likely too sophisticated for what you want to do. Given that these are power LEDs, their voltage-current curve is not terribly steep and will likely be able to handle a bit more power so long as the power supply is relatively close to 12V. If it goes above 12.5-13 V on your supply. I would expect you to start decreasing the lifetime of the LEDs significantly. If you measure your supply (batteries) and it's below that range, then you would likely be able to eliminate the use of your resistor entirely. If your supply is above that range, then you will want to determine how much you need to drop the voltage. Basically, you want it to drop 5 Amps down to 12 Volts. For example: lets say your power supply gives 14 volts rather than 12 V. Go ahead and add a resistor that drops it to 12V. (14V-12V)/5A= 0.4 Ohms. That is the application of Ohm's Law. If you do not know or understand it, wikipedia is a great place to start.4. Current in LED strip different when measured separately vs individually.You will need to also measure the voltage at the supply output. There is a good chance that at higher current demand that you were overloading the poser supply causing its output voltage to be dragged down to below the 12V that you think it is providing5. 5v 10amp powering arduino and LED stripMy understanding is that the arduino and components plugged into the arduino will only draw as much amps as they need.Your understanding is correct. You can go ahead with your plan.I am not sure what you mean when you say that connecting the Arduino to the power supply with an USB cable and connecting it with wires are two different options. Either way you are connecting the Arduino to the power supply. You can read more details in this reference question here on Stack Exchange: Choosing power supply, how to get the voltage and current ratings?6. charging 24v LiFePO4 with DC power supply intended for LED strip lightsIn the end I got a power supply with CC. However by controlling voltage on it I can also control current, so the above supply would have worked, but with no CC it could also burn out if the voltage was too high
Connect an Arduino Directly to RGB LED Strip
Those LED strips are multiple parallel chains of 3 LEDs in series, with a 150 resistor for each chain. The chains are arranged as common anode, and the chains are grouped into the three colours for the cathodes.You require a power supply with enough current to supply all the LEDs (such as the 3A one supplied in the package). Further, you require a method of switching each of the three channels, such as n-channel MOSFETs, which can handle enough current for each channel (one MOSFET per channel) - that is, 1A per channel if the whole strip takes 3A (but you can "derate" it by providing capacity for more current which helps alleviate some heat dissipation problems).As long as the MOSFETs are logic level (such as the IRLxxx series) you can then switch them directly using the PWM outputs of the Arduino1. what is an led monitor?A monitor (pootar screen) that is weighed down by putting led in the back2. Hospital or midwife led units?My mom was very happy with her midwife experience. She had me in a hospital just in case something went wrong, but had a midwife attend to the birth rather than an OB. She did a completely natural birth. She wished she could have done the same with my brother.3. do you need a resistor for led bulb for tail lights?complicated thing. check out on to google. it can assist!4. What has led to the descent of British politics?Thank you for the A2A.I'm afraid I dispute your premises, both in the question and in your notes, however.First, I do not accept that British politics is in a decline. The parliamentary democracy in the UK remains strong; there are interesting, vocal and engaging figures across the political spectrum (and indeed in both Houses); the UK is constantly in a state of change, which is itself a good thing, and that change is led by Parliament, carrying out the express will of the people. Second, your comment on political leaders. It is true that Margaret Thatcher was a powerful Prime Minister: she led in an authoritarian way - which is perhaps why she is so well known outside the UK. She was certainly "noteworthy" - and is the subject of a great deal of vitriol within the UK which does not lend itself to dispassionate political analysis. A shame. However, what Margaret Thatcher did for the Conservative Party was in some way mirrored by Tony Blair in the Labour Party. Tony Blair led Labour to victory in three consecutive General Elections, securing Labour's two largest majorities ever, and the largest majorities of any political party since the Second World War.He reshaped the Labour Party, moving it to a more centrist stance, and adopted policies designed to make the UK a more equitable country: introducing the National Minimum Wage, increasing benefits spending, especially for children and pensioners. His government introduced the Human Rights Act and helped reshape the UK's political face through devolution.His reputation may be - perhaps unfairly - tarnished because of his actions in supporting the invasion of Iraq. However, it would be hard to argue that he was not a "noteworthy" leader. I'll pass over Gordon Brown, but David Cameron is also "noteworthy". He was at the age of 43 the UK's youngest PM since Lord Liverpool, and during his six years as PM his government was characterised by its efforts to cope with the economic crisis. It's also noteworthy that his premiership saw three referenda: on voting reform, Scottish independence, and of course the referendum on whether or not to leave the EU. The results of this poll will reshape the UK once again - whether one supports Brexit or not.And Theresa May? She only became PM in July 2016 - perhaps a little early then to judge her? On the basis that it is her task to oversee the negotiations following the triggering of Article 50, I suspect that she too will have a place in history.I know the above is true 'cos I read it in the Daily Mail. The dangerous teenage texting slang all parents should knowAmericans and other ex-colonials might mistake this for a newspaper. It isn't, of course.What has led to the descent of British politics?What lead to descend of British politics?
