PWM controlled RGB lamp (part2)

(2/?)

>>> Part one<<<
>>> Part Three <<<

I recently got another old/trashed HP all-in-one scanner-printer, and took the RGB lamp as well as a bunch of motors, gears, and stuff.


This time, there are pics of the scanner piece before complete take-apart :

Now that i have a new lamp, it is time to disassemble the old one :

Wait, What ??? that's not a bunch LEDs like i thought first, but a single RGB LED and a clear plastic reflector!


The LED (only green isn't burnt on this old lamp):

The LED with green ON:

Same, but with f/11 and 1/80 sec.:

With the plastic piece that reflects an diffuses light all along (same pic settings):

Although, it is one LED, the use of recycling this part is keeping it as is : perfect to make an atmosphere lamp.

A PWM supply is now needed to correctly monitor all this :)
