Description

Our LED Flex Strips are perfect for lighting professionals as well as home owners with a do-it-yourself attitude. They are easy to use, making it possible to install yourself even with minimal knowledge on the electrical side. The strips are sealed in silicone, making them waterproof (IP65 Rated) so they can be used for outdoor applications or in areas where they might be exposed to moisture (kitchens, bathrooms, etc.). They come with double-sided 3M adhesive tape, adding to the ease of installation. They must be powered from 12VDC and NO LED DRIVER IS REQUIRED.

Colors

We offer these strips in single colors: Warm-White (3000K), Neutral-White (4000K), Cool-White (6000K), Red, Green, Blue and Yellow. If you need different colors we offer an RGB option that uses primary colors (Red, Green & Blue) to create different colors and color changing effects.

Lengths

These strips can be purchased in 3-foot increments up to 16.4 feet long (1 full reel). However, we realize that all applications have different needs which is why the strips can be cut every 3 LEDs (4 inches). There is a thin black line over solder pads, which marks where you are to cut the strips. 

End-to-End Connections

Sometimes there is a break in your application. You can still run small strips together using 20-24 gauge wire to run them in series (end-to-end). TAKE NOTE: You may only run strips in series up to 32.8 feet long (2 reels) as after this the voltage drop becomes too great and you will lose light and efficiency from your system. If your application needs over 30 feet you will have to get another power supply or run wire from the extra strip directly back to the first power supply (wiring in parallel).

Connections can be made by soldering wire in between strips or by using solderless clamps (see right). Only one end of the strips come with wires on it so if you want to make more connections you will need to solder or use strip connectors. Here is a good tutorial on wiring the strips together if you'd like more information.

Powering and   Dimming LED Flex StripBrightness

These strips use 5050 SMD LEDs to give off 300 Lumens/Meter (90/foot). There are 30 LEDs every meter that run at 7.2 watts. That's an efficacy of 42 Lumens per watt!

Dimming

These strips are dimmable and can be used with our 12V PWM Dimmers. The dimmer will go between your power-supply and strips (see picture). The available dimmers can be seen above by clicking on the accessories tab above. We have a variety of PWM dimmers ranging from single channel remote, to multi-channel remote and wall mount PWM dimmers.

Controlling RGB Strips

The RGB strips use Red, Green & Blue LEDs to mix colors and show a variety of different colors. In order to use these you will need an RGB controller. The controller box goes in between your power supply and strips and then you can control your strips with the remote. You can pick different colors or an option that lets you alternate through them.

Thank you for not making me buy the whole real
I've been wanting to try this type of product out for awhile, but the minimum order everywhere else is too much. I was able to buy 3' and test it out. plus these guys offer free shipping so the whole project cost me 10 bucks. I used an old 12vdc power-supply i had kicking around, but after this test I am going to buy one of ledsupply's bigger power-supplies, a special connector and a few more feet to finish off my project. I recommend this company!

The right amount of light
This flexible LED strip is perfect for supplemental lighting. I used the led flex strip to light my stairs. You can easily see at night without lighting up the whole stairwell.

FAQ


What can I do with these LED Strip Lights?

Popular applications for these strip lights include: cove lighting, under cabinet lighting, accent lighting, outdoor patio lighting and much more. Take a look at the applications tab to the right for some application photos from customers like you.

 


How do I know what power supply to use?

The Standard Density LED flex strips need to be powered by 12VDC, the amperage of the power supply is the only thing that will vary which affects the total wattage your power supply can handle. (Wattage = Volts x Amps)

These flex strip lights run at 7.2 Watts/meter (roughly 2.2 Watts/ft.) So just find out the length you are running, figure in your wattage and select a 12VDC output power supply that can handle that wattage. You don't want to max out your power supply, so it is usually a good idea to get a slightly larger power supply than you may need.

 


Can these LED flex strips run off batteries?

Yes, since batteries give off direct current (DC). Just make sure it's 12VDC and always make sure to check the amperage so you know you are set.

 


How do I connect the strips to a power source?

The flex strips come with 6 inch wire leads on one end. These can be wired straight to power supplies with terminal blocks like our open frame power supplies.

 


I need to run two lengths of strips together, how can I make this possible?

This can easily be done in a couple different ways, but first, you must know that you can only connect these strips in lengths up to 32 feet (2 full reels). After this, the voltage drop is too great throughout the strip and you will lose your quality of light. If you need more you will need to run wire from the extra length back to your power source directly.

You can connect the strips by soldering wire in between the strips. If you don't want to use wire or are unable to solder than our 2-pin (single color) and 4-pin (RGB) connectors will work. You can choose a gapless connection or choose one that has 6 inch wires in between for tight corners or small gaps. Take a look at the accessories tab under wires and connectors for these options.

 


How do I connect to the solder pads with the silicone in the way?

In order to make connections like we talked about above you will need to take a razor blade or small knife and carefully cut into the silicone to peel it away. WARNING: do not cut too far down and into the strip as this will ruin the strip and will not work properly.

 


Can I dim and control these LED strip lights from a standard switch and dimmer?

No, you will need what is called a Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) Dimmer. We have a few options in the accessories tab under Dimmers and Controllers.

You can, however, use a standard switch on the outlet that supplies power to the strips. This would allow you to turn the power on/off to the strips, but would not give you any dimming capabilities.

 


Does the 3M tape backing hold the strips in place well enough?

In our own testing and from talking with customers the strips seem to hold up pretty well with just the taped backing they come with. However, if you have an application where the strips are exposed to different elements or in an area you can't easily fix if need be we would recommend using a little bit of hot glue, gorilla glue, or U shaped nails/brackets to add some support.
