How To Choose Led Strips

- Dec 16, 2019-

Led light strips are often used to outline the outline of various buildings, to construct large-scale lighting patterns, various interior decorations, lighting decoration for residential areas and home landscaping. There are two types of high-voltage LED light strips and low-voltage LED light strips according to the difference in the use of led light strips and the requirements of the light strips. So what are the differences between these two types of LED flexible lights, what are the advantages and disadvantages between them, and how do we choose when buying?

1.Safety: The 220V voltage used by high-voltage LED light strips is a dangerous voltage, and there are potential safety hazards in some risk applications; low-voltage LED light strips work at a DC 12V operating voltage, which is a safe voltage and can be applied to On this occasion, there is no danger to the human body.

2. Installation: The installation of high-voltage LED light bar is relatively simple. It can be directly driven by a high-voltage driver. Generally, the factory can be configured directly, and it can work normally after connecting the 220V power supply. The installation of low-voltage LED flexible light strips requires a DC power supply in front of the light strips, which is relatively complicated during installation.

3. Price: If you look at the two types of lights alone, the price of LED strips is similar, but it is different from the overall cost, because high-voltage LED strips are equipped with high-voltage power supplies, generally a power supply can bring 30 ~ 50 meters LED flexible light bar, and, relatively speaking, the cost of high voltage is relatively low. Low-voltage LED light strips must be equipped with a DC power supply. Generally, the power of a 1-meter 60-bead 5050 light strip is approximately 12 ~ 14W, which means that each meter of light strip must be equipped with about 15W DC power. The cost will increase a lot, much higher than the high-voltage LED strip. Therefore, from the perspective of overall cost, the price of low-voltage LED lamps is higher than that of high-voltage LED lamps.

4. Packaging: The packaging of high-voltage LED strips and low-voltage LED strips are also very different. High-voltage LED flexible strips can generally be 50 ~ 100 meters / roll; low-voltage LED strips are generally 5-10 meters / roll. ; DC power supply attenuation beyond 10 meters will be very severe.
