BuckPucks @ PWM 0


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I have my buckpucks tied up to my Arduino and my question is

what is the impact of having the arduino set the PWM level to 0 on the LEDS for an extended period of time?


will this damage the buckpucks or lower their life expectancy? At the moment im using





analogWrite(10, 0); to turn off my leds, is there a better/safer way?

Buckpucks use inverted input logic, so 0v (0% duty cycle) is full brightness, and 5v (100% duty cycle) is off. Nothing wrong with running at any duty cycle for extended periods. That's what they are designed for.
