LED Flexible Strip Installation Method

- May 30, 2019-

The led light strips are pure in color, beautiful in color, high in brightness, energy-saving and environmentally friendly, long in life, safe and reliable, and gradually emerged in the decoration industry. Since the led light bar is a new product introduced in recent years, some customers have not touched it, and it is not clear how to install it.


When LED strips are used for interior decoration, the requirements for waterproofing and UV protection are not high, and the installation is relatively simple. Taking Shangming Optoelectronics LED light strip as an example, each LED flexible strip has a self-adhesive 3M double-sided adhesive on the back. When installing, you can directly remove the 3M double-sided adhesive surface sticker, and then fix the LED light strip in the installation. Position, just hold it tight by hand. As for some places that need to turn or the length of the LED strips are inconsistent. The LED light bar is a circuit structure consisting of three LEDs in a series-parallel manner. Each of the three LEDs can be cut, and the length can be cut off, and the short can be soldered.


When the LED light bar is used outdoors, it will be attacked by rain and ultraviolet rays. If it is fixed by 3M glue, the 3M adhesive will be reduced for a long time and the LED light bar will fall off. Therefore, the installation of the outdoor LED flexible light strip is often adopted. The way the card slot is fixed. The places that need to be cut and connected are the same as the indoor installation, except that additional waterproof glue is needed to consolidate the waterproof effect of the joint.


The LED light bar generally has a voltage of 12V DC, so it needs to be powered by a switching power supply. The size of the power supply is calculated according to the power and length of the LED light bar. You can also purchase a power switch with a large power supply to make the total power supply. All the LED flexible strips are connected in parallel with each other. If the size of the cable is insufficient, it can be extended. The power is always supplied by the main switching power supply. The advantage of this is that it can be centrally controlled. It is inconvenient that the lighting effect and switching control of a single LED strip can not be achieved, and which method can be measured by itself.


LED race strips and RGB strips need to use the controller to achieve color change effects, and the control distance of each controller is different. Generally speaking, the control distance of the simple controller is 10 to 15 meters, and the control distance of the remote controller is 15 to 20 meters, the longest can be controlled to a distance of 30 meters. If the connection distance of the LED strip is long and the controller cannot control such a long strip, then a power amplifier is needed for tapping.
