16 channel PWM Dimmer code

Managed to find some time over the weekend to get some coding done for the dimmer (was called “controller” but I thought this would be confusing in the end so now it is “dimmer”, more theatery). The Dimmer .ino and library now works and can do: Independently control 16 LED channels of high res (0-4095)…

The Dimmer

I played around with a few setups for the part of the system that will actually control the LED lighting but everything always ended up messy from a cabling point of view and, as all good development projects go, unmaintainable for anyone else let alone useful for anyone out in the world to try an…

After starting off thinking that the on board Arduino Mega’s 14 PWM pins would be enough, I quickly found that this would never work. Apart from The starting limit of 14, pretty much any extra shield you plug is wants one or more of these pins. Ethernet shield wants pin 10, SD reader wants pin…
