Install a LED Ribbon

Basic principle a connection of LED Ribbon
The principle is very simple:
First of all, if you want to choose a flexible LED strips, check out our LED Ribbon Selection Guide.
You can then make your choice among our Packs of LED strips.
Sound advice for all LED strips

Install a LED Ribbon 3

Install flexible LED strips is very simple. The Ribbon has a powerful sticker and can be attached to all types of media. Watch dusty racks that will need to be well cleaned before gluing the Ribbon.
Before gluing the Ribbon, make a “blank” branch to verify proper operation: once stuck, the Ribbon will be difficult to remove.
Turn off the power for all 230V connection. On the other hand, the Ribbon running 12V, it can be handled without danger. So, you can do a test before sticking it to position it in the right place with the on tape, but be careful not to pull on the wires in 230V during this operation.

Cut the strip of LEDs to achieve angles or extensions

To adapt your Ribbon to your installation, it is possible to simply cut with scissors. You can cut a Ribbon, add a feed, and continue further with the rest of the cut piece.
Here are below the two possible fixtures to achieve angles. Simple rules however are to be respected, handle the ribbons with caution and avoid angles flat (it must then cut the Ribbon):
In the second case, you need to then solder two wires or use a seamless fitting at the level of the cut area:
The ribbons are designed to be welded: Tin copper disk, and the end of the wire, just solder your thread.
To extend a Ribbon, cut it on the edge of the copper discs, Tin 4 discs, put ribbons end to end, and from the tip of the soldering iron, connect both tinned.

Install a LED Ribbon 2

All Ribbons are recoupables all 3 LEDs, either:
every 2.5 cm to 240 LEDs/meter ribbons,
tous les 2,5 cm pour des rubans de 120 LED/mètre,
tous les 5 cm pour des rubans de 60 LED/mètre,
tous les 10 cm pour des rubans de 30 LED/mètre.
 
The strip of LEDs must be cut between 4 copper discs only:
Where to paste the LED Ribbon
For better comfort, avoid directing the LED of a tape directly to the eyes. This is not dangerous, but it’s not very nice visually.
Felt Visual intensity depends on the editing you’ll realize and color (for the white ribbons) temperature. It is possible to install ribbons LED indirect or on-line:
for a live montage, you can place ribbons in special aluminium LED profiles that will hide the Ribbon once installed.
for indirect mounting:
try not to place the Ribbon too close to the surface which will broadcast the light for greater efficiency: a Ribbon placed on a ledge at 20 cm from the ceiling will enlighten more than 2 cm.
count light output reduced from 30% to 50% according to the positioning of the Ribbon.
The different types of ribbons LED fixtures
It is possible to connect your ribbons in series or in parallel on a special LED power supply with 12V (DC) output:
The maximum lengths of Ribbon LED to respect
Please respect the maximum lengths in series that are shown for each strip of LEDs. If it exceeds these lengths, the difference in brightness between the beginning and the end of the Ribbon will be too visible. Once these lengths with, you simply walk away with a wire from the power to finish the intallation:
LED decoration uban: 10 meters maximum in series.
normal power LED Ribbon: 7.5 meters in series.
LED Ribbon high density: 5 meters maximum in series.
variable color LED Ribbon: 7.5 meters in series.
LED Ribbon high power:
2.5 meters maximum in series with the Ribbon on a full rack (OK: plasterboard, wood, glass…).
5 meters maximum in series with the Ribbon on an aluminium profile or metal.
Strip of LEDs very high power: 2.5 meters maximum in series (2.5 meters if powered from both sides).
For your installation, it is possible to multiply these values by 2 by plugging the Ribbon from the Middle either by plugging it on both sides.
Do not glue the ribbons over 10W/m on media not dissipating heat as polystyrene, foam…
Use an aluminium profile can be provided the theoretical life of the LED (35000 to 50000 hours).
Install a LED Ribbon
The maximum lengths of son to respect
If you want to know the distance maximum wire between the power supply and the strip of LEDs, you can find this information in the selection of power supplies guide.
How to connect the ends of your ribbons
It is possible to connect your ribbons with wires or sheets. When in doubt, take a pack or contact us.
Our white LED strips are provided with wires at both ends of 5 meters:
Connection with wires
Power supply: If the mains has a record output, use a single female plug. Otherwise, you have nothing to do.
LED ribbons: Ribbons are delivered with threads, you will therefore have nothing to do special.
Connection with a plug
Power supply: If the location already has a record output, you will have nothing to do, otherwise, you need to add the finishing plug for power supply or plug one male and connect it with a domino.
LED ribbons: Ribbons are delivered with wires, you need to add a plug for ribbons package to connect to a power supply with care.
Our RGB LED strips are provided with 4 pin female plugs at both ends: you need to add a plug or a male/male plug according to the controller that you want to connect the LED strips.

Place a switch or a LED dimmer
If your son or your decision-making are not connected to a switch, it is possible to order the Ribbon:
adding a switch before the power supply on the 230V (sold in hardware store),
by adding between the Ribbon and the power supply:
an automatic switch IR,
a dimmer LED radio (+ function ON / OFF).
a LED dimmer manual (+ function ON / OFF).
Place the LED strips in an aluminium profile
It is often preferable to place the LED strips in the aluminium profiles, especially for the powers greater than 9 or 10W/m. you will find these information in the realization of bars LED guide.
Variable white ribbons

The Ribbon has 3 wires that need to be connected at the output of the controller. This must be connected to any she 12V power sold on the site according to the following Assembly:
Essential to order with this Ribbon accessories are: a power supply, a controller (and its remote control).
In order to locate the ground wire from the son of warm white and cold white, just read the instructions on the Ribbon.

Variable color (RGB) ribbons

Implementing the ribbons RGB is identical to that of the white ribbons, but with 4 wires (mass, red, green, blue). There a controller in addition to the power to be able to vary the color.
The power supply must be sufficient to feed the Ribbon and the controller that uses less than 1W.
The controller can be connected to one or more ribbons until the maximum power it can support. For example, a Ribbon RGB normal 5 meter power consumption 3A (3x1A). So we can connect 4 ribbons of type to the output of a 3x4A controller.
Below is how to install 3 RGB LED ribbons:
It is possible to order additional ribbons when it exceeds the capacity of the controller by adding a RGB signal amplifier. In this case, the amplifier is connected to a new power supply.
You will find here different fixtures amplifiers RGB:
It is best to avoid plugging a controller or a un amplificateur amplifier vacuum, plug so the tape output before connecting it to the power supply.
Ribbons RGB connect to controllers with Terminal screw, inserting the son in special sheets or with connectors. This depends on the model of controller.
