Before you can start using the LED Magician, please select the correct input voltage by shorting the connections labelled "8-28V" or "4.5V".
If you are using an input voltage that is between 4.5Volts to 8Volts, solder the connection labelled "4.5V" (Fig. 1)
If you are using an input voltage that is 8Volts and above, solder the connection labelled "8-28V" (Fig. 2)

LED Magician Installation instructions
- Connect power supply’s negative (-) to terminal labelled “V0”
- Connect power supply’s positive (+) to terminal labelled “V+”
- Connect LED(s) anode (+) to output terminals labbelled “V+”
- Connect LED(s) cathode (-) to output terminals labbelled “1” to “12”
- Control sequences via onboard control buttons.
LED Magician Connection Diagrams
You can connect the positive (+) and negative (-) of your LED(s) from each channel output. (example 1)
Or you can connect the negative (-) of your LED(s) to the channel output and share the positive output on your LEDs, please see example 2 below. Both methods work the same.
On Board Buttons
Use button 1 & 2 to select blinking sequences. Up to 32 sequences are selectable. Press and hold for 2 seconds to reset to default sequence
(Default sequence cycles through all 32 sequences)
Use button 3 & 4 to select speed. Up to 8 speeds are selectable. Press and hold for 2 seconds to reset to default speed.

Installing external controls
You can wire-out external controls by using the through-holes located at the top right corner of the circuit board.
Using a micro-controller;
A "push" of the control buttons are simulated via an "active low" TTL signal from your micro-controller.
The connection should be kept "high" at 5v and a "low" level signal simulates a press of the switch.
