Mood light using 3W Prolight RGB LED

A 3W Prolight RGB LED mounted on a heat-sink, with rubber feet to support e.g. a glass ball.


This mood light consists of a Prolight RGB 3W LED, a heat sink and four rubber feet. The four rubber feet form a base on which e.g. a glass ball, or something else transparent can be placed. It will be lit up by the LED and looks pretty cool. Powered by: 5V.

Between the LED and the heat sink there is some heat conducting film, to better dissipate the heat. The LED is common anode, with resistors for use on 5 volts. It gives off 30 lumens of light in 140 degrees.

The Prolight LED is controlled by AVR ATMega8. See Mood light (RGB) controller with 500mA outputs for more information.
