LED strip light how to install
In fact, the installation and use of LED strip lights are very convenient, do it yourself can make a very beautiful effect.
The following will tell you about the main installation and use of LED strip lights.
1, indoor installation:
LED strip for indoor decoration, because it does not have to withstand the wind and rain, so the installation is very simple.
To a brand of LED strip, for example, each LED strip has a self-adhesive 3M double-sided adhesive on the back,
you can directly tear off the 3M double-sided adhesive surface stickers, and then the strip is fixed in the place where it needs to be installed, and press the flat by hand.
As for some places need to turn the corner or long how to do? Very simple,
the LED strip is a group of 3 LEDs in series and parallel mode of circuit structure, every 3 LEDs that can be cut off for individual use.
2, outdoor installation:
LED strip outdoor installation due to the wind and rain, if the 3M adhesive fixed words, time will cause 3M adhesive reduced adhesion and LED strip off,
so the outdoor installation is often used slot fixed way, need to cut and connect the place, the same method, and indoor installation,
just need to be equipped with additional waterproof adhesive, in order to consolidate the waterproof effect of the connection point.
3, pay attention to the LED strip connection distance:
in general, the 3528 series of LED strip, the maximum connection distance of 20 meters, 5050 series of LED strip, the maximum connection distance of 15 meters.
If beyond this connection distance, the LED strip is easy to heat up, the use of the process will affect the service life of the LED strip.
Therefore, the installation must be installed in accordance with the requirements of the manufacturer, do not let the LED strip overload operation.
LED strip lights are not very simple to install and use. But there is still a friendly reminder:
everyone in the installation of the strip must pay attention to electrical safety, to be in the case of a power failure can only be carried out Oh.
Installation method steps
1, the corresponding length of the cut.
Generally, we buy directly to the strip is a good plate, which is we need to use according to their actual needs related to the length of the cut,
cut to pay attention to the termination point in accordance with the cut.
2, after the length of the cut, we put the stripline needle into the strip end without the patch place.
3, the line pin and the light with the plug for connection, this time you can put the plug energized,
but this time need to pay attention to the point is that we have to check the access point again before inserting, must not have water damage.
4, after the plugging, if the light band normal light, on the one hand, that our installation steps are correct, on the other hand, it also means that the light band itself is not a problem.
LED strip installation precautions
1, if the entire volume of the strip is not removed from the packaging or piled into a mass, do not power on the LED strip.
2, according to the installation length of the site need to cut the strip, only at the printed scissors mark to cut the strip, otherwise, it will cause one of the units to not light, generally each unit length of 1.5-2 meters.
3, connected to the power supply or two lights connected in series, first to the left and right bend the head of the colorful lights,
so that the wires inside the strip are exposed about 2-3mm, cut cleanly with scissors, do not leave burrs,
and then use the male to connect, in order to avoid a short circuit.
4, only the same specifications, the same voltage of the colorful lights can be connected in series with each other,
and the total length of the series connection must not exceed the maximum permitted length.
5、When the lights are connected in series with each other, try to light up one section for each connected section,
so as to find out whether the positive and negative poles are connected wrongly and whether the light-emitting direction of each section is the same.
6, the end of the strip must be set on the PVC tail plug, tied with a clamp, and then sealed with neutral glass glue around the interface to ensure safety.
7, because the LED has a one-way conductivity if you use a power cord with AC/DC converter,
you should complete the power connection, first conduct a power-on test to determine the positive and negative connections correctly before putting it into use.
