Apex to Inventronics driver and Potentiometer

Recommended Posts

I will be building my 54 LED fixture from ledgroupbuy.com. I want to use my Apex Lite to do the ramp up/down of the light at the same time I want to control each LED string drivers to fine tune the color combination. I came up with the configuration to do this.....is the wiring configuration correct?

I spent some time last night to bring this project close to finish. I wired and completed the project box for the potentiometer



I also cut a piece of acrylic as a mounting pad to install my canopy hanging kit and completed the fans installation .



and tested all the LED together for the first time.

Great job fish. I also have a DIY led setup with the same inventronics drivers. So you have the Neptune VDM module controlling the dimming?

 

I've bee thinking about a controller, if I can get an apex to handle sunrise/set I might just go that route. Can you post a pic of the connections to the VDM so I can see how it works?

 

Are you happy with the options available for dimming on the apex so far?

click on the attachment on post #1..or try this attachment. My build is not done yet so basically not installed to my tank and the controller is not connected yet.
