led strip Light Installation

1.indoor installation:LED strip light  for indoor decoration, because do not have to withstand the wind and rain, so the installation is very simple. Light rainbow electronics production of LED light strip, for example, each LED light strip behind the paste with self-adhesive 3M double-sided tape, installation can be directly torn off the surface of the 3M double-sided tape stickers, and then the strip is fixed in the need to install the place, press the hand flat on the good. As for some places need to corner or long how to do, the PCB of the LED strip has some copper dot markings, followed by a scissors icon. These scissor icons indicate the cut points of the LED strip. Basically, this is the part where one circuit ends and another begins. Therefore, it is perfectly safe to cut at this point without damaging the LED strip. However, there are options for reconnecting the strip using LED strip connectors or soldering.

2.outdoor installation: outdoor installation will be subjected to wind and rain, if the 3M adhesive fixed, over time will cause 3M adhesive viscosity reduced and cause led strip lights fall off, so outdoor installation is often used in the way of card slot fixed. Need to cut and connect the place, the same method and indoor installation, just need to be equipped with waterproof glue, in order to consolidate the waterproof effect of the connection point.

3.the power supply connection method: LED light strip general voltage for DC 12V/24V, so you need to use a switching power supply power supply, the size of the power supply according to the power of the LED light strip and the connection length to determine. If you do not want to use a power supply to control each LED strip, you can buy a larger power switching power supply to do the total power supply, and then all the LED strip input power supply all in parallel (wire size is not enough if you can additionally extend the), unified power supply from the total switching power supply. The advantage of this is that it can be centrally controlled, the inconvenience is that you can not realize the lighting effect of a single LED strip and switch control, the specific use of which way can be measured by yourself.

4.the controller connection: LED running light strip and  RGB full-color light strip  need to use the controller to achieve the effect of change, and each controller control distance is not the same, in general, the simple controller control distance of 10 to 15 meters, the remote control controller control distance of 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 can not control that long, then you need to use a power amplifier to tap.

5. pay attention to the connection distance of the LED strip: in general, the 2835 series of LED strip, its connection distance is up to 20 meters, 5050 series of LED strip, the longest connection distance is 15 meters. If you exceed this connection distance, the LED strip is easy to heat, the use of the process will affect the service life of the LED strip. Therefore, the installation must be in accordance with the manufacturer's requirements for installation, do not let the LED strip light overload operation.


Precautions to be taken when installing LED light strips

1. in the case of the whole roll of led strip light is not dismantled from the packaging or piled up into a mass, do not energize the LED strip light;

2.according to the site installation length need to cut led strip light, only in the printed scissors mark cut strip, otherwise it will cause one of the unit is not bright, generally each unit length of 1.5-2 meters;

3. connecting the power supply or two cuts of light tape series connection, first to the left and right bending Li color lights head, so that the light tape inside the wire exposed about 2-3mm, cut with scissors cut clean, no burrs, and then connect with male pins to avoid short circuit;

4. only the same specifications, the same voltage led colorful lights can be connected in series with each other, and the total length of the series connection must not exceed the maximum allowable length;

5. led strip lights are connected to each other in series, each connected to a section, that is, try to light up a section, in order to find out whether the positive and negative poles are connected to the wrong and each section of the strip's light shooting direction is the same;

6. the end of the strip must be set on the PVC tail plug, with clamping tape tight, and then use neutral glass glue to seal around the interface to ensure safety.

7. because the LED has a unidirectional conductivity, if you use the power cord with AC/DC converter, should be completed after the power connection, the first power test to determine the positive and negative poles are connected correctly before being put into use.
