The LEDG Guide to Mean Well HLG Drivers: Part 2 – Constant Voltage & Parallel Wiring

Part 2 of this series examines constant voltage models and parallel wiring, as well as thermal runaway and series-parallel wiring.

Wiring Identical COBS in Parallel on a Constant Current Driver

I’m away from my plants tonight so I’ll have to update my grow tent progress tomorrow – here’s a little video I recorded instead!

Wiring LEDs in Series and Parallel

There are 2 ways to go about wiring LEDs: series and parallel. In most cases, if you have a constant current driver, you’re going to want to wire them in series. If you’re using a constant voltage driver, chances are, you’ll be wiring in parallel. You may even need to combine both methods in order to hit a certain voltage or current to match to a particular driver (see my post on matching COBs to drivers for more info on this). This information applies to LEDs of all types, whether they’re COBs, boards, strips, or whatever.
