LED level light switch

Does anyone have an suggestions on how to go about setting up a mock up light switch that uses LEDs to display the different “levels” of light ( this is for a model of a light switch)

any info would be great…


Do you want to vary the intensity of one LED or have five LEDs that light up as the intensity increases?

5, similar to the Lutron Vierti

go to http://www.mouser.com/ and look up surface mount LEDS. they have hundreds of kinds. pick out the color and brightness you want then find the corresponding resistor. they tend to be 4 watt with a 82 resistor then make your power supply to 4 watts. sodder everything together mount LEDs to your lightpipe with glue. you can make a sliding connection to turn them on as you move up the switch… good luck :smiley:
