I have a nice candleabra I want to use, I know it involves lots of hot glue, and LED's... anyone know how these are made?
The Prop1 controller can do it with wickled's I "think" The Prop1 will run up to seven of them at one time. www.efx-tek.com The WickLed's are fairly easy to make yourself depending on your electronic skill level. I have made several this year for a similar idea. The program to make them flicker is free and available on the EFX forum so don't worry about having to program it.I have a nice candleabra I want to use, I know it involves lots of hot glue, and LED's... anyone know how these are made?
You mention the snovotill circuit, you might want to check out http://www.johnnyspage.com/LED%20Flicker.htmThe thing about these is that in order to make the LEDs flicker like a real flame, you'll need at least five flicker circuits to drive them. Five is a minimum number; the best solution would be a flicker circuit for each "flame".
That link is one circuit... I know I've seen others that are easier and present a better "how to" description.
At the top is a link titled FirelightFlicker that goes to http://members.shaw.ca/novotill/FireLightFlicker/Thanks for that link. I'm still not seeing the one I was originally thinking about... maybe I just imagined it. I'm sure there's a simple, elegant solution that doesn't involve voltage regulators and ICs or (gasp) software code.
