Description

12V LED Strip Light GuideOur Waterproof IP65 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 can be quickly cut down to size and come with double-sided 3M adhesive tape, adding to the ease of installation. They must be powered from constant 12VDC. If you prefer LED strips without a silicone covering, the non-waterpoof option can be found here.

LED Density is measured per meter. The more LEDs per length increases the light quality and brightness.  Please see the table on the right for more details.

Standard-density LED strip = 30 LEDs per Meter

High-density LED Strip = 60 LEDs per Meter

Colors

We offer these LED strips in RGB, single colors, Ultra-Violet (UV) and whites: Warm-White (3000K), Neutral-White (4000K), and Cool-White (6000K)

Lengths

To avoid buying more than necessary we offer these LED light strips in 3-foot increments up to 16.4 feet long (1 full reel = 5M). However, we realize that all applications have different needs which is why the strips can be cut every 3 LEDs. There is a thin black line over solder pads, which marks where you are to cut the strips. 

End-to-End Connections

cutting and connecting led flex strip

When there is a break in your application you can still run one strip to another using 20-24 gauge wire or LED strip connectors. TAKE NOTE: Standard Density maximum run length is 32.8 feet (2 reels) and High Density maximum run length is 16.4 feet (1 reel). After the maximum run length the voltage drop becomes too great and you will lose light and efficiency from your system. If your application needs more than the maximum run length 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.

Brightness

The LED strip lights use 5050 SMD LEDs which give off a nice light while staying cool along the flexible board. Standard density LED strips give off 180 Lumens/Ft whereas the High Density strips give off 360 Lumens/Ft. 

Standard Density Common Uses: accent lighting, back-lighting, stair lighting, shelf lighting, toe kick lighting.

High Density Common Uses: task lighting, under cabinet lighting, cove lighting, area lighting, sign lighting

A 12-volt DC Power Supply is required to run these LED Strip lights. There is a wattage table within the FAQs tab above. This will help you decide the wattage of your project and what size Power Supply will suffice.

Connecting to power can easily be done with simple wire-to-wire techniques such as soldering, wire nuts, electrical tape, etc. If you have a plug-in adapter with a barrel plug on the end, these screw-in terminal power plugs help turn the wire leads into a simple plug in connection.  

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. 

If you require an AC Dimming Control from Lutron or Leviton, use a dimmable power supply.

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.

FAQ


Why High Density LED Flex Strips?

These strips are our Standard Density LED Flex Strips on steroids. They are double populated (60 LEDs/meter compared to 30), therefore they pack a lot more lumen output. Needless to say, these are the strips you need for those applications that need a very bright linear light. They are great for outdoor applications as they are brighter and much more noticeable. They are also better for larger rooms/households. If you have an exceptionally large area you probably want to go with these high density strips as they will give you the light you need to illuminate up your spot.

 


Are there any tutorials on how to set these up?


Does the 3M tape backing work on its own for mounting these strips?

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

 


Can you use a battery as a power source?

Since batteries give off direct current (DC) they can be used to power the strips. Just make sure it's 12VDC and always make sure to check the amperage so you know you are set.

 


How do the strips connect to the 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.

 


How can you connect two lengths of strips together?

This can easily be done in a couple different ways, but first, you must note that you are only able to 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 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 (for single color strips) and 4-pin (RGB strips) 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.

 


What size power supply do I need?

These LED flex strip lights need to be powered by 12VDC, the amperage of the power supply will determine the total wattage your power supply can handle. (Wattage = Volts x Amps)

Find out the length you are running, and use the chart below 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.
