BlinkM MaxM - High Power Smart LED


Looking for the new BlinkM MinM? You can find it --> Here <--.

BlinkM MaxM, is BlinkMs bigger, crazy sibling. It's an intensely-bright smart LED for prototyping that comes as a package of two components, a control module (MaxM Master) and a daughter board with three ultrabright LEDs (MaxM Blaster).

MaxM Master runs our unique firmware that creates virtually any RGB color, fades smoothly between two colors, and blinks in virtually any pattern. Like its smaller sibling, it requires almost no knowledge of electronics. Its powerful 1 amp MOSFET transistors can control the industry's most power-hungry LEDs, while its 12 volt power supply lets it be run from a wide variety of power sources, making it perfect for prototyping automotive applications and low-voltage track lighting systems.

MaxM Blaster's trio of LEDs are 50 times as bright as a standard BlinkM and more than 1000 times as bright as a standard LED. They're so amazingly bright they kind of freak us out (and should absolutely not be looked at directly, under any circumstances!).

Finally, it includes four analog input lines, which means that its behavior can be changed without requiring an external controller. We have expanded the BlinkM control language to make this powerful capability available without affecting backward compatibility. All existing BlinkM software should run on the MaxM without requiring any changes.
