PAM V5 LED control


Overview

When using version 5 of the HID pivCLASS Access Module (PAM) and wiring up the LED wire, it is possible to get erratic results displayed upon the LCD screen when access is granted. This is the result of the voltage between the LED and GND altering every .2 seconds. To resolve this, a custom LED mode must be defined.
