The DIMFree V4.0 can dim 6 banks of PWM dimmable drivers (D1, D2 and D3 from SatisLED). That means you can dim up to 6 colors separately in very tiny increments that allow a smooth transition between color intensities for sunrise/sunset.
Unlike other supplier's Simulate controller, DIMFree is totally and easily programmable with any PC! You can set any dimming persent at your own wish! Build in with programmable CH341/340 IC, you can set the dimming ratios easily by connecting it to PC with a micro USB cable. The dimming from time to time is smooth.
The controller comes with a remote controller which can remote select the dimming mode.
24V Switch Power Supply(3 to 8 pcs 1W LED in series, 8 pieces at most for each driver's channel.)
36V Switch Power Supply(3 to 10pcs 1W LED in series 10 pieces at most for each driver's channel.)) --Recommended
To power the DIMFree-C6(700mA) you can use:
24V Switch Power Supply(3 to 8 pcs 3W LED in series, 8 pieces at most for each driver's channel.)
36V Switch Power Supply(3 to 10pcs 3W LED in series 10 pieces at most for each driver's channel.) --Recommended
To power the DIMFree-C6(1050mA driver) you can use:
36V Switch Power Supply(1pcs 30W COB Power LED for each driver's channel.)
To power the DIMFree-C6(1500mA D3 Driver) you can use:
36V Switch Power Supply(1pcs 50W COB Power LED for each driver's channel.)
1. Q: Is there a possibility, to add a “fast motion” mode, to test the Sunrise/Sunset Mode settings (for example 24h in one minute)?
A: If you want simulate the 24 hours within a minute, you can set 16 Times within one minute(same hour and the seconds from little to large).
2. Q: What happens by setting the mode No.5 (Lightning) to 100% and when?
A: When Mode No.5 (Lightning) set to 100%, it would flash at full brightness every 1.2 seconds. The Flash interval can be customized.
3. Q: What is the voltage output of the fan connector? How many fans can I connect to it?
A: It is typical 12V constant voltage which suitable with the most commonly fans. Normally you can connect up to 6 fans to the fan connector. The fan output design is 12V 2A. Normal 12V fans are 150-250mA/pcs. We recommend the sum total current of all fans is smaller than 1.5A.
4. Q: Is it possible, to extend the temperature sensor cable, for example, 1.5M?
A: Yes, no problem with 1.5M extend cable. It is typical DS18B20 temprature sensor, you can also find the waterproof one everywhere like satistronics store: http://www.satistronics.com/waterproof-ds18b20-waterproof-stainless-steel-encapsulated-temperature-sensor_p2993.html
5. Q: How to find the correct COM to program the controller?
A: You can find the right COM by right Click My Computer-Manage-Device Manager-Port(COM and LPT). Then choose the right COM on the DimFree software which shows under the Device Manager.
6. Q: What is the maxium amd minium LEDs in series if I use the D2 and D3 Drivers?
A: The D2 and D3 Driver is no step down or boost driver. It is a CC driver controlled by the PWM signals. The maximum and minimum LEDs in series depend on the switch power supply you use for the DIMFree controller. For example, if you use the 36V switch power supply, you have have 10 LEDs in series(3.6Vx10=36V). That does not mean you must have 10 LEDs in series if you use 36V power supply. Any number between 2 to 10 would be OK. That is why we recommend to use the 36V power supply. If you still have doubts, you have have a review of the Meanwell LDD series driver which works similar to our D2 and D3 Driver.
7. Q: There is no battery inside the remote controller I received. What type battery it need?
Due to shipping courier's restriction, we can not ship battery with it. The battery inside is 23A 12V version. You can buy it locally.
8. Q: I want to buy this product (DIMFree V4.0- 6 Channel). But what is Maxium LEDs I can connected to this controller. For example, can I make a 360W lights for my reef tank?
A: Technically, you can connect as many as LEDs you want. The contronller only passes the PWM signals for dimming. The total power would depand on your switch power supply. For your example, you can make 6 channels LED groups and 360W total Power LED with the following materials:
a. 35V Switch Power supply, 500W is reccommended: http://www.satisled.com/heavy-duty-industrial-switch-power-supply-100240v-ac-to-36v-dc_p1749.html
b. One DimFree controller: http://www.satisled.com/dimfree-v40-6-channel-led-sunrisesunset-programmable-controller-with-remote_p1746.html
c. We recommend 3 W LEDs for your project: http://www.satisled.com/Wholesale-Discount-satispower-led-3w-power-led_c19.html
d. Then each channel would have 60W out put. You can have multiple D2 and D3 drivers connected in each channel. One channel of D2 would have 35x0.7A= 25W. So you need three D2 and D3 each in 700mA:
All the D2 and D3 drivers have pre-setted wire connection points for easy muti-connection. And relevant heatsinks/wires/plasters according to your project. If you have any doubts, feel free to contact us.
