Analog Meter Clock 50µA?

by mole42 on Sun Dec 13, 2015 12:39 pm

Hi,

Is it okay to use 200µA meter movements (I have several) with a suitable (~25kΩ) resistor? I can see no max. current load specification for the Trinket driver ports.

Thanks,
Richard

That should be no problem. Current limits for a pin depends on a number of factors, but 20mA is a safe rule-of-thumb.
