When LED light strip is used for interior decoration, because it does not have to withstand the wind and rain, so the installation is very simple. Take LED strip produced by our company for example, each LED strip is affixed with self-adhesive 3M double-sided adhesive on the back. When installing, you can directly tear off the stickers on 3M double-sided adhesive surface, and then fix the UV LED strip in the place where it needs to be installed, heal fine by hands. What about some places need corner or being too long? It is very simple, LED strip is a circuit structure composed of a group of three-LED in series-parallel manner, every 3 LEDs can be cut to be used alone.
Because the outdoor installation will withstand wind and rain, if you use 3M adhesive to fix, the 3M adhesive will be reduced over a long time, resulting LED strip shedding, so often we use slot fixe in outdoor installation, the places need to cut and connect have the same installation methods as indoor installation, just need additional waterproof glue to consolidate the waterproof effect of the connection point.
Power connection method:
Generally the LED strip voltage is DC 12V, so it needs switching power supply, the size of the power is decided by the led strip power and connection length. If you do not want each LED strip to be controlled by a power, you can buy a large power switch power to do the total power, and then input power into the entire multi color LED strip and make them in parallel (it can be extended if the wire size is not enough), unified power supply by the switching. The benefit is centralized control, the inconvenient place is that you cannot achieve single LED strip lighting effects and switch control. You can decide specifically to use what kind of method.
a. If it is not 220V strip, do not directly light the strip with AC220V
b. Do not reverse positive and negative
c. Workers should wear a wrist strap to carry out work
LED marquees strip and RGB full strip need to use the controller to achieve the changing effects, but each controller controlling distance is not the same, in general, the control distance of simple controller is 10-15 meters, the control distance of remote controller is 15-20 meters, which can control up to a distance of 30 meters. If the connection distance is longer, but the controller cannot control the long LED strip, then you need to use the power amplifier to tap.
Notes for LED strip connection distance:
In general, the connection distance of 3528 series LED strips is up to 20 meters, the maximum connection distance of 5050 series of LED light strip is 15 meters. If exceed the connection distance, the LED strip will be very easy to heat, which will affect the life of the LED strip in the process of use. Therefore, at the time of installation, you must be install in accordance with the requirements of manufacturers, do not let the LED strip to carry out overload operation.
