LED Series Resistance
Calculator....
Enter LED Parameters from Datasheet. NOTE: The LED forward voltage drop stated in the datasheet:.... is the typical voltage drop. For a precise series resistor value, the Vfwd of ALL the LED's should be measured. This is especially important when connecting LED's in series chains. as the combined spread in the Vfd can lead to an excessive LED current |
