“Analog” PWM LED dimmers

The QuinLED-An-Penta line-up is a line of “analog” PWM LED dimmers. The main target of these dimmers is to either use them standalone using the WLED software or natively integrated into Home Assistant using either WLED or ESPhome.

Analog PWM dimming means you can dim LED strips that don’t have any digital ICs on there. (Controllers for Digital LEDs can be found here). Generally these are identified by having multiple wires labeled R, B, G, WW, CW. This type of LED strip needs to be controlled using PWM dimming, the QuinLED An-Penta line-up will help you do so, including pre-assembled boards you can just buy and use without having to solder anything!

Some unique features of the QuinLED An-Penta line-up:

  • All boards based on Espressif ESP32 (mini uses ESP32-C3)
    • All boards include onboard USB-C port and programming option!
  • Fully internally fused positive outputs
    • If something goes wrong the fuses will protect your wires and strips from a fire!
  • High Quality PWM dimming
    • 12v-48v support, Tuned circuits with MOSFET drivers, Precise high bit depth control, High PWM frequency support, Custom DC-DC design combined with heavy decoupling capacitors to try and minimize PWM noise
  • Additional features including
    • External Antenna for excellent reception, Dedicated button/switch input terminals with HW debounce, onboard temperature sensor option, i2c “Stemma QT/QWIIC” port for additional sensors, etc.
  • Native compatibility and designed to run with Home Assistant
    • Easily and natively integrates into your smart home, no bridges or other complicated setups required
    • All boards are capable of running WLED, ESPhome or Tasmota software
  • Color coded terminals for ease of use!
    • All terminals are clearly labelled and color coded so even when fumbling around in hard to reach places it’s clear which plugs go where!
  • You buy it, you own it
    • Fully open and programmable using USB-C port and programming hardware onboard!
