PWM controlled RGB lamp (part3)

Soldering wires to the RGB+ pins :  a better way. (than part 1)

This continues part 1 and 2.

The result had to be : 
  • Modular (plug)
  • Easy to use
  • Not too big.
1/ making the plug:
Plug soldering

Due to recycling, i don't have many colours in small wires so, Red == Red, Yellow == Green, Blue == Blue,  and White == Vcc. (this will get much more complicated soon ;-))


2/ Soldering to Pins:
On the Plug i want RGB in order so it is Red-Green-Blue-Vcc
But on the LED pins, the order is Vcc-Blue-Red-Green


soldering plug wires to LED pins


3/ Drilling holes for the plug and writing RGB+:

another sight on the plug

RGB+

"- What the hole!
- Hey, no one is perfect. >_<"

4/ Insulating and testing the plug:
Insulating the plug
"- Wait, what? you plugged White to Brown, and Red to Yellow ??
- Yes, i did, remember that's recycling, so... i'm using what i can!"



5/ Only and Arduino is needed to complete that project now :)

part 4 pending ....
