Default Re: Beier sound controllerand light setup

The way I see it I have the following circuits for the tractor..

Two bulbs for fog lights, Two bulbs for low beams, Two bulbs for high beams, 7 bulbs for marker lights, one front left turn signal, one front right turn signal, 3 back up lights, 2 rear combination brake and turn signal lights.

So that is a total of nine circuits.

The light is cabled like this:

Battery + -> resistor -> led + (long pin)
Led - (short pin) -> output pin at the USM-RC-2

You can also put the resistor behind the LED.

For 7.4V circuits I use 220Ohm resistors.

I run 3S lipo Packs (I use them in my crawlers, Quad Copters, Airplanes and RC Cars.

That would give 11.2 volts fully charged and cut off at 9.6 volts.

What resistor would you suggest?

Red Violet Brown for the low beams, high beams, front fog lights, two rear tail lights, and rear combination lights

Brown Red Brown for the back up lights

Now for the yellow marker lights I need three circuits

Brown Red Brown
Red Violet Brown
Red Violet Brown

That makes 7 red brown red and 7 Red Violet Brown

Hi,

the needed resistor can be calculated. Ser this page.

LED resistor calculator

Just ensure that your LEDs are mounted parallel, not in a row.
