:) Yep, LOL,I figured you were going to ask me that... The RA* is in one room and the module is screwed to the mounting board in another... with the 72" heat sink and lights.

I'll un-mount the module and use my multi-meter to check for voltage.

With 0x41 attached to the RA* and the below code:
Code: Select all
    // 16 channelPWM testing
    ReefAngel.PWM.Set16ChannelRaw(0,369);
    ReefAngel.PWM.Set16ChannelRaw(1,1107);
    ReefAngel.PWM.Set16ChannelRaw(2,1845);
    ReefAngel.PWM.Set16ChannelRaw(3,2583);


I get the following:

ch 0 - 0.43v
ch 1 - 1.33v
ch 2 - 2.24v
ch 3 - 3.14v
ch 4 - 0.0v
ch 5 - 0.0v

You still have any of those 16ch dimming modules left?

So, that means the module is working fine as well as your code.
The only thing left is the communication from RA* to the cloud wifi hub.
I have to check, but I'm almost sure I didn't include it.
I'll check it later tonight after I put my kid to sleep.
It's feeding time now :)

Dude, no hurry. I understand the night time feedings; got five kids and did most of them late nighters... wonderful time as I remember it.

Yes, the 16ch is confirmed not to be in the publishing of variables.
It would take a change in the libraries for this to work.
I think the best would be to just add this to your own code and it would take a bit of patience to get this completed.
Do you want to give it a try?
I can get the code started for you to test.

Yes, please. I would love to do this.

I was also serious when I asked if you had any 16ch modules left? Some of the things I'm thinking of doing with my lights, I'm thinking, would be easier with a single 16ch module as opposed to two 6ch modules.

Those modules were only 0-5V PWM signal.
What drivers are you using?

Meanwell LDD-1000H and LDD-700H.

I think those are 0-5V PWM, right?
If that is the case, I can make one for you, but it takes a few weeks and it does not come with a plastic enclosure.
It would be about $89.
PM me if interested.

That's correct; 0-5V PWM for those drivers.

A few weeks, $89, and a PM. Got it.
