    Led64 card and LED in parallel?

    Hello,

    Each output of a LED64 card can take one LED, today I made some tests and connected two LED in parallel in one output and they worked withoute any problems.

    My question is do you think that if in each outpout two led are connected ie instead of 64LED will have 128 , the card can take this load?

    In my experience it can, I use all but 6 of the 64 slots on the card for the overhead and each slot has two led's wired in parallel. No problem at all, if anything the LED intensity is a little bright at the PM Systems default setting.
