UV LED Array Exposure Box DIY Build

Building a UV LED Array and a PCB exposure box out of cardboard.. yeah.

This UV LED Array and box pcb are DIY home built 🙂 with a simple design.

This exposes a PCB in 2,5 – 3 min using aproximately 1,2A at 12V

I use a 2A 15V power supply that powers a simple LM317T constant current module that keeps the LEDs from burning out.

Constant current is at about 1-1,2A, 12V.

R1 is 1 Ohm and at least 2W.


Led Current(I) = 1.25/ R1

Where 1.25 is the reference voltage of the LM317.

If you want to use the bellow PCB design, you are free to do so and if you want, please share this page 🙂

Right click and download the bellow 2 images, they are PNG – 1200dpi.
