What Are the Installation Methods of LED Lighting Strips?

The LED lighting strip has advantages of pure color, brilliant color, high brightness, energy saving and environmental protection, long service life, safety and reliability, and has gradually emerged in the decoration industry. SHENZHEN HANRON LIGHTING CO., LTD will share with you the installation method of LED lighting strip.


1. When the LED lighting strip is used outdoors


Because it will be eroded by rain and ultraviolet rays, if 3M glue is used to fix it, the 3M glue will decrease over time and cause the LED lighting strip to fall off. Therefore, the outdoor LED flexible light strip is often installed with the method of card slot fixing. The place that needs to be cut and connected is the same as indoor installation, except that it needs to be equipped with waterproof glue to consolidate the waterproof effect of the connection point.


The general voltage of the LED lighting strip is DC 12V, so it is necessary to use a switching power supply. The size of the power supply is calculated according to the power and length of the LED lighting strip. You can also buy a high-power switching power supply as the main power supply, and connect all the input power sources of LED flexible light strip in parallel (if the wire size is not enough, you can extend it additionally), and use the main switching power supply to supply power.


The advantage of this is that it can be controlled centrally. The inconvenience is that the lighting effect and switch control of a single LED lighting strip cannot be realized. The specific method can be chosen by yourself.


2. When LED lighting strip is used for interior decoration


The requirements for waterproof and UV protection are not high, and the installation is relatively simple. Take the LED lighting strip as an example. Each LED flexible light strip has a self-adhesive 3M double-sided tape on the back. You can directly remove the sticker on the surface of the 3M double-sided tape when installing, and then fix the LED lighting strip in the installation position. Just stick it tightly with your hands.


As for some places that need to be turned or the length of the LED lighting strip is inconsistent, the LED lighting strip is a circuit structure composed of 3 LEDs as a group in series and parallel mode. Every 3 LEDs can be cut off. If they are long, they can be cut off, and if they are short, they can be welded.


3. The connection distance of the LED lighting strip


The 3528 SMD series LED lighting strip has a maximum connection distance of 20 meters, and the 5050 SMD series LED lighting strip has a maximum connection distance of 15 meters. If this connection distance is exceeded, the LED lighting strip will easily heat up, and the service life of the LED lighting strip will be affected during use. Therefore, when installing, it must be installed in accordance with the manufacturer's requirements, and the LED lighting strip must not be operated with overload.
