RGBW setup



  • Hello,

    My problem is with my RGBWW LED strip, that all LED are ON, node receives commands, but doesn't do anything when receives it.

    I have bought this RGBWW LED strip.

    It has 5 inputs: 12V; RED; GREEN; BLUE; and WARM WHITE input. So here are 3 inputs for (RGB) collors and 1 for White color.

    I try to build a node from @LastSamurai manuals and I use his shematics from
    MySensors RGBW Controller.
    I did one change, instead of using IRLML2502 Mosfet, I use IRLZ44N Mosfet.

    I converted exsisting code to 2.0.0 version.

    /**
    Based on the MySensors Project: http://www.mysensors.org
    
    This sketch controls a (analog)RGBW strip by listening to new color values from a (domoticz) controller and then fading to the new color.

    When I upload it - all LED's are on. I using NRF24L01+ radio, which connects with Domoticz and receives all comands successfully. I'am choosing color from domoticz color panel, color is transmitted to node, but no changes - no matter what chosen color, there always all LED's are on.

    I try different code just for testing my connections from here, and code was working fine, colors whas changing like written.

    So I rejected that problem is becose I use IRLZ44N instead of IRLML2502. Could someone verify that this is not becose of IRLZ44N?

    Try different code from

    ...but was no difference. Node does not listening for commands.

    Maybe someone have some tips here, what I could change to get it working?

    Other question: this LED strip gave 5 inputs (one of then are 12V), does it calls RGBW or RGBWW? By seller it is RGBWW and think it is becose it means Warm White, am I correct?

    Thanks in advance!


  • Mod

    @jacikaas yes, WW is warm white. So the 5 "inputs" are
    +12V
    Red
    Green
    Blue
    White

    What happens if you connect the input of one of the mosfets to GND instead of the Arduino PWM pin? What happens if you connect the mosfet input to VCC instead?

    Could you post a photo of your wiring?

    I am using IRLZ44N for my kitchen light. I had to use a 3.3V->5V logic level shifter to get the mosfet to turn completely on, but you seem to have the opposite problem so that shouldn't be related.

    If you uncomment all the nice serial debug statements, what does the output look like?

    What happens if you connect the input of one of the mosfets to GND instead of the Arduino PWM pin?

    I disconnect RED color MOSFET G (Gate) input from Arduino 3 input - then all red LED's turns off. When I connect it to GND - all red LED's are still turned of.

    What happens if you connect the mosfet input to VCC instead?

    When I connect to VCC - all red LED's turn on. And I thinks it shines brighter then connected to Arduino 3 PIN.

    Could you post a photo of your wiring?

    Of course. It's a bit messy on breadboard, but wiring made on same colors as RGBWW LED Strip. Here it is:

    I'm using 5V Arduino Pro Mini, so I think it's ok with voltage?

    If you uncomment all the nice serial debug statements, what does the output look like?

    I uncomment serial debug statements, but variables in there isn't defined, and I'm not actualy know how I should describe them and where point them...

    Voltage between Mosfet G and D terminals (for RED color) is 3.12V, when its connected to Arduino 3 PIN, other Mosfets voltage is lower and everyone is different. It seems like Arduino keeps opened PIN's.


  • Mod

    @jacikaas the wiring looks OK to me. The only difference I see from https://www.mysensors.org/build/dimmer is that you are using pulldown resistors.

    Hi, great to hear that someone else is using my project too. Perhaps we can get it to work for you too :)

    First of all your mosfets should work too, I was using IRLZ44N mosfets too for my prototypes (although some people in the forum had problems with them I think).
    All your leds turn on because the standard setting (when the node doesn't receive anything else) is to turn on every channel to 100 of 255.

    byte values[4] = {100, 100, 100, 100};
    byte target_values[4] = {100, 100, 100, 100}; 
    

    Change that part if you don't want this behaviour.

    The important part of your code for changing colors is the incomingMessage(const MyMessage &message) function. In your logs I am never seeing any serial output from that function. So I guess you never get any new messages with new values?! Try to find out why that method never gets called.
    I haven't worked with mysensors 2.0 yet so it might be a problem with the conversion or just with your radio setup. With 1.5 and my node it works well (I have 5 nodes running atm).

    @LastSamurai : Great work. We had this working with Domoticz. Except only 1 color white did not respond after several color adjustments in Domoticz. PWM issue... We don't know. So currently I am using a Mi-Light controller. However with your post at my friends place we are going to try your solution. ;-) who wants to use mi-light if we can have MySensors. Just a question... With MiLight it is impossible to use White + RGB... WIth your code I think it should be possible to also use both LED simultaniously for a better color representation.. Don't know if it will melt the LED strip or fry the powersupply. Any suggestions??


  • Hardware Contributor

    @sincze Thanks!
    Concerning the pwm issue: you need to make sure that you use pins that support pwm (in an earlier version I used one pin that didn't; now I do but you have to move the radio to another pin).
    You want to light up the white leds and the rgb leds at the same time? No problem for my node, it allows you to use every channel independently (see my post above, it's a 4 value array).

    The problem might be that you have to send the right message. Domoticz (the controller I am using) only send either rgb values or a white value, so only one of them gets light up. If you find a controller that sends different values it should work just fine though. You might have to change the inputToRGBW() method where my node interprets the message send from the controller).

    I wish you good luck, if you need help just ask :)



  • @mfalkvidd @LastSamurai thanks a lot guys!

    I remove pulldown resistors. I found code for RGB LED strip in here:
    RGB_3D

    I adopt it for RGBW LED and add white LED's control:

    This code works perfectly, so I could say my IRLZ44N is not broken. The biggest differences between codes is that with this one I need to control every color separately and it has "party" mode (show) :))) It's just nice to have. :)
    Now I'm trying to add a physical button that could control white color on/off.

    @LastSamurai I will try to understand why I don't get new messages with Your code. I will inform when I will got something.



  • What version of Domoticz are you using? The original code relies on l6 and l9 message length to distinguish between RGB and RGBW, while recently Domoticz started to send l7 and l10 messages.
    So I had a node that worked, but stopped working.
    I changed 2 digits in the code and it works again

    Also, in case of length 9/10 message, you don't need to parse RGBW values as Domoticz ALWAYS sends 000000FF in this case.


  • Hardware Contributor

    @Toyman Oh, do they? I am using the newest version from the beta channel: 3.5691. At least thats how I configured my instance. I don't know if the format changed (haven't checked recently), but my nodes are working just fine.
    And yes that parsing is not needed that was just in case they changed it later.



  • @LastSamurai yes. This is strange, I know, but that's what I observed in the node log.
    I made a preliminary breadboard node, everything was working fine so I soldered it on a PCB, connected and… nothing happened. And then I noticed the change. As soon as I changed 6/9 to 7/10, the light was on :-)



  • @Toyman

    I'm using latest Beta version Domoticz V3.5727

    So I'm a bit confused, my version is newest, so why I'm still getting 6 and 9 lenght code.

    I'm still on it, trying to understand...

    I did just update to that version too and I (too) still see the 6 and 9 character long codes. Perhaps @Toyman is using some different configurations?
    Anyways this is easy to fix in your sketch ;)



  • Sorry, guys. I did see 7/10 in the logs and the fact my node is working confirms I continue to get 7/10.
    In fact I have RGB strip, but I had to configure it as RGBW to be able to use HomeKit.
    It's listed as RGBW/dimmer in Domoticz
