Title: IR Array Circuit
Post by: breaks1984 on March 25, 2008, 04:13:56 PM
Hi there,

I was wondering if any one had a circuit layout for the IR Array. I am wanting to build an array but unsure where to start, I have purchased IR LEDs that came with resistors, but I was unsure about what else I would need.

I would be grateful if someone could help!



P.S. I dont have much knowledge in electronics!  :'(

Do you have the specs of the LEDs?
What do you mean by the LEDs came with the resistors? Is there a resistor on each LED?
If you have the specs, I recommend that you connect them using both series and parallel configuration. You might need to remove the resistors that came with them and replace them with the right ones.

Try using this calculator for your design.
