I'd like to see this thing supply 30 amps!

A PWM circuit with a low on-resistance MOSFET can deliver that amount of current without a heat-sink.
But, of course, you also need a power supply that can deliver that amount of current. :rolleyes:

Like the microcontroller?;)





It could hypothetically control 1 mega-amp at 1GV through the microcontroller with enough transistor/relay stages. So if that is what they mean by it then it is meaningless.

Why is it meaningless? :confused:
It's a circuit that can control a specific amount of current under microprocessor control.
That's a common requirement.

So again, what does 30 amps really mean? And "max load current" really makes it seem like the maximum current you can draw from the board.

I guess I'm having a problem understanding your confusion. o_O
Yes, 30A is the maximum current it can provide to a load.

The description on amazon. Unless it means something else, it is either complete BS or they made a typo.

You can count on that "30 amps" being a typo; there's nothing on that board, front or back, that could possibly switch that much current. As far as I can tell, they just bring the STM32 I/O pins (25 mA max. source/sink current) out to the header with no intervening electronics.

But my 20 amp project! :confused::( Probably means 30 milliamps, but I could try and draw 30 amps and ask for replacements. :cool:

like many chinese they dont know or have the items so the same descriptions copied&pasted + typos and nonsense.

The item doesnt have Amperage.

You could say your dog barked, then its not as described.

  • It is used to receive single color signal from LED dimmer and send the signal to another group of LED source.
  • The single LED amplifier applies to DC5-24V LED controller, it can receive PWM, output PWM.
  • Supply voltage: DC 5-24V.
  • Max load current: 30A.
  • Working temperature: -20~70℃.
From different item coped and pasted

Please allow 1-3mm differs due to manual measurement.

Must have had a bad hair day when it becomes as much as 3mm

Package:
1 x Single Amplifier

Item is 5 STM boards.

Chances are, the seller doesnt know or have the item, gives a canned or no reply.

Something I always wanted to do
Characteristic: Can be used as tea pet furnishing articles, decorative tea sea, ascend tea art interest and can also be put in the study, improving taste
