QuinLED An-Penta-Mini Wiring Guide

Back to QuinLED An-Penta-Mini Index

Hooking up your QuinLED An-Penta-Mini is easy! Below are some example configurations to show you how to hook up various configurations. Please also see the QuinLED An-Penta-Mini Ports guide.

Below are just examples, the output ports of the QuinLED An-Penta-Mini can be configured as desired within the hardware limits.

24v RGBCCT LED strip

A very common configuration for the QuinLED An-Penta-Mini will be the 5 channel RGBCCT LED strip so Red, Green, Blue combined with Warm White and Cold White.

  • It’s recommended to use the larger “medium” power channels for the WW and CW channels since those generally use more power then the RGB channels
  • This allows a maximum power usage of 5A dictated by the limitation of a max of 5A from the single Positive output of the QuinLED An-Penta-Mini

24v RGB+2x White CCT LED strip (Alternative)

An alternative to the above is not using a single RGBCCT strip but combining multiple strips to produce the same result. This can have the benefit of being able to choose higher quality White LEDs or using a higher power version.

This also allows for higher power usage since the LED strips can be distributed over the 2x 5A positive power output.

2x Dual White (CCT) strip

If you want to use the QuinLED An-Penta-Mini for main lighting purposes connecting 2x Dual White CCT strips can be great, this gives you the ability to control each strip individually and also set each strip to the desired white color individually.

When using a higher power or longer strip and a lower power or less long strip it’s recommended connecting the high power/longer version to the L1 and L2 “medium” channels and the lower power/shorter strip to L3/L4/L5.

It’s also advised to distribute the positive sides over the multiple positive outputs.

5x single color white

For primary lighting purposes you can use each of the 5 channels to run a single color white LED strip, each of these can be controlled individually. Please again note that L1/L2 are “medium” power channels with a maximum of 5A vs L3/L4/L5 which are “low” power channels with a maximum of 3A.

Again it’s also important to distribute the strips over the 2x 5A fused outputs as described in the power handling article.

End conclusion


The above are just examples of how you can use and configure the QuinLED An-Penta-Mini, it basically has 5 channels and any combination you wish to make with these is supported, ESPhome is most flexible for this but many configurations can also be made in WLED.
