    Wiring help for 2 mode's on wired 1A buckpack driver

    I have this driver : Wired-buckpuck-1000ma-driver-3023 and 2 single XPG-R5. I want to have the following mode's high,low and off. I do not want to use resistors to regulate the different modes. If you wire the led's in series that will give me full mode at 1A, if it's wired in parallel it will share the amp's and will be ok for low mode at +- 500mA.
    How do I wire the setup to achieve this settings, somewhere needs a one way thingi to be added.. a diagram would be appreciated ...Please help?

    You really really should use resistors between the ctrl and ref pins to limit current.

    See fig 9

    There is a battery +/- and a LED +/-

    See the datasheet
