Hi, So I’m building two custom fixtures with two 12V cree xhp50.2 (2700K) units. I’m not new to the lighting design world so I know what I want it to look like, but I am quite new to the electronics world. I chose these units because they are small and have a single point source, which should eliminate ugly multiple shadows. But I’m having some trouble understanding the complete picture.
- I am thinking of running them in parallel, but this might not be a good idea, I’ve heard running LEDs in parallel creates weird behavior?
- I ordered the Thomas Research Products 96W 8-24V 4A (PLED96W-024-C4000-D-HV), but I have no idea if that is the correct driver? I thought I would be safe, as it can power the 12V LEDs in parallel and in series.
- I want the driver to be a few meters from the fixtures. Should I be worried about the cable thickness?
