3 colour LED Module

What does it do?

This is a simple example of how to use the Hobby Components 3 colour LED module. The module has 3 separate LED inputs (Red, Green & Blue) which can be individually driven by applying a voltage to the appropriate module pin. This example uses the standard Arduino analogWrite (PWM) function to cycle through the full range of colours this module is capable of producing. Please be aware that the screen print on this module is incorrect. Please see table below for correct pinout.

Pinout:

PIN 1: RED LED +Ve
PIN 2: GREEN LED +Ve
PIN 3: BLUE LED +Ve
PIN 4: GND
