So I'm a noob here but have been following for months. I have built a new cab and am ready to hook up the Led Wiz for the Force Feedback phase. My question is the Led Wiz doc says each bank of 8 has a max of 1 Amp total. I have 5 CREE XM-L RGB LEDs at 5volts, 8 Siemens 24 Volt Contactors and a 24v relay to drive the 24vdc Williams knocker. Since I have split voltages, (5v and 24v), I understand I going to have to wire 2 banks at 5 volts and the other 2 banks at 24v and "sink" them appropriately to each output. I used 8.2 Ohm (Red) + 5.6 Ohm (B,G,W) resistors for each CREE LED leg to give me ~320 mA for each LED color.(I measured with DMM to verify) Since I'm going to have to stack 8 CREE legs on each bank (to make all this fit), the simple math says I'm going to overload the 1 Amp max. I realize that not each leg is going to be driven at each time so I might be safe. Am I correct? Thanks for the input. This project is fascinating!
