Led Light Strip Installation Method And Precautions

Led Light Strip Installation Method And Precautions

Jul 15, 2019

1. Indoor installation: When the led light strip is used for interior decoration, it is very simple to install because it does not have to withstand wind and rain. Take the LED strips produced by Liuhong Electronics as an example. Each LED strip has a self-adhesive 3M double-sided adhesive tape on the back. When installing, you can directly remove the 3M double-sided adhesive surface sticker, and then fix the light strip in need. Place it by hand and press it flat with your hand. As for some places that need corners or are long, what should I do? Very simple, the led light strip is a circuit structure consisting of three LEDs in a series-parallel manner. Each of the three LEDs can be cut and used separately.


2, outdoor installation: outdoor installation will be subject to wind and rain, if the use of 3M glue fixed, the time will cause 3M adhesive viscosity to reduce the led light strip off, so the outdoor installation often uses the card slot fixed way. 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.


3. Power connection method: The general voltage of the led lamp is 12V DC, so it needs to be powered by the switching power supply. The size of the power supply is determined according to the power of the led lamp and the connection length. If you don't want each led light strip to be controlled by a power supply, you can purchase a relatively large power supply for the total power supply, and then connect all the led lights with the input power supply in parallel (if the wire size is not enough, you can extend it separately). Uniformly powered 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. The specific method can be measured by itself.


4, controller connection: LED marquee belt and RGB full-color light strips need to use the controller to achieve the change effect, and the control distance of each controller is not the same, in general, the simple controller control distance is 10 to 15 meters, the remote controller's control distance is 15 to 20 meters, and the length can be controlled to 30 meters. If the connection distance of the led strip is long and the controller cannot control the strip as long, then a power amplifier is needed for tapping.


5, pay attention to the connection distance of the led light strip: In general, the 3528 series of led light strips, the connection distance is 20 meters long, 5050 series of LED light strips, the connection distance is 15 meters. If this connection distance is exceeded, the led light strip is easy to generate heat, which will affect the service life of the led light strip during use. Therefore, the installation must be installed in accordance with the requirements of the manufacturer, should not let the led light with overload operation.
