I’ve built a 200 led panel, using 4 lengths of wired led buttons, an 8amp 5v PSU and a GOOUUU ESP-32.
I ran power to the ends and middle of the LEDS, and connected 5v, data and GND directly to the ESP-32. That’s it, no resistors or caps.
It all works well at low brightness, but resets the ESP-32 if set above a certain brightness. If I use the current limiter, I have to set it to 3000ma before the effects I have set up will run without resetting.
Theoretical 12000ma max draw, 8000ma PSU and yet I have to limit it to 3000ma to reliably work.
Any ideas please?
