I have a 50W LED driver with a IR remote control that i want to controll with a microcontroller. I hooked it up to my oscilloscope to try to decipher the data sent between the IR reciever and the remote, but couldn't recognize the protocol used, and the PicoScope software couldn't figure it out either. Any idea what it is? The short 0 pulses are approx. 0.52ms long
There are no lots of protocols used for IR remote controller. Probably RC 5 or NEC.
If you take apart the remote, you could probably find a chip with markings on it - then you know.
The "W28" IR remote control for generic Chinese LED lamps uses NEC protocol.
