LED light strip installation method

- Mar 05, 2021-

In fact, the installation and use of LED light strips are very convenient, and you can make very beautiful effects with your own hands. Let me talk about the main installation and use methods of LED strips.


1. Indoor installation: When the LED light strip is used for indoor decoration, the installation is very simple because it does not have to withstand wind and rain. Take the LED light strips produced by Guanghong Electronics as an example. The back of each LED light strip has self-adhesive 3M double-sided tape. When installing, you can directly tear off the sticker on the surface of the 3M double-sided tape, and then fix the light bar on the need. Just press it flat by hand for the installation place. As for some places where corners are needed or if they are long, what should I do? Very simple, the LED strip is a circuit structure composed of 3 LEDs in series and parallel, and each 3 LEDs can be cut and used individually.


2. Outdoor installation: The outdoor installation of LED lights will be exposed to wind and rain. If they are fixed with 3M glue, the 3M glue will decrease over time and cause the LED lights to fall off. Therefore, outdoor installations often use card slots to fix them. The way to cut and connect the place, the method is the same as indoor installation, but it needs to be equipped with waterproof glue to consolidate the waterproof effect of the connection point.


3. Pay attention to the connection distance of LED strips: Generally speaking, the longest connection distance of 3528 series LED strips is 20 meters, and the longest connection distance of 5050 series LED strips is 15 meters. If the connection distance is exceeded, the LED light strip will easily heat up, which will affect the service life of the LED light strip during use. Therefore, when installing, it must be installed in accordance with the manufacturer's requirements, and the LED lights must not be overloaded.
