Honestly, this is just about the most complete, well done, intuitive and technical Instructional videos I've seen. And I've seen a lot. Great job, and this is the type of mind I like to converse and work with. Cheers.

Great videos. Question: How would I connect a digital display to the dimming Pot to display the dimming amount? What about showing the dimming amount on a scale from 0-100? Would a PWM signal control be better for this, since it already outputs a duty cycle in the format 0-100? Cheers 🥂

Well done, thanks. I am currently changing out my HPS lights for COB LED's and have been getting helpful advice from all of your videos. It's a bit scary and exciting to make the changeover from something that worked well for me in the past to the new world of LED's.

H there, thanks for your teaching :D, I'm confused about the first driver you showed, the one with the two holes, so it has the chance to adjust Io and Vo, does this means that that kind of driver is both a CC and CV driver? so it looks like the best choice.. can you explain if is a good choice? I'm interested in this ELG-240-48A, I guess is the new series from meanwell. Thanks again.

edit: I'm actually watching your video about CC+CV driver, I'll edit this if I clear my doubts.

I can't tell you how many times iv recommended this video series to people, I do have one question if you can help

what kind of switch can i put in the output side of the driver? I have a 240w 48a driver im using for a 120w light so i have some overhead on there, but id like to have another light running temporarily on a different schedule, what im thinking is I just cut off the power to the second light after the 12 hours so the original light just runs until it switches off as normal, does this make sense to do or would i be better off getting another driver?

I was kind of hoping i could wire in a wifi switch for simplicity, or a plug type timer, but idk how they will act running with a DC throughput, and everything im seeing for DC timer switches on say Amazon like to go up to 36v..
