Chapter 1

Why led strip light is a good choose?

Led strip light is a new lighting source.It will help you save energy,easy install.Here are some benefit of choosing led tape lights.

 Long life span

LED light strips are a one-and-done solution to your lighting needs. A general life expectancy of up to 50,000 hours means you don’t have to worry about changing your lights every few months.

Power saving

LED uses a more efficient system to convert electrical power to visible light. This means LED lights require less energy to function, making them an efficient lighting system. Reduced energy costs do not mean you have to sacrifice lumen output. In fact, an 8W LED bulb produces the same amount of light as a 60W incandescent bulb.

Environment protection

LEDs produce fewer CO2 emissions than traditional sources of lighting. This helps you reduce your carbon footprint and make a positive environmental impact. They also don’t emit heat radiation the way incandescent bulbs do making them safer to use.

Easy to fix

LED light strips require little to no maintenance. You can install them indoor and outdoor. You can modify light tapes to be dust and waterproof. Their robust construction makes them less prone to physical glitches.

Variety of applications

You can use LED light strips in almost any space. You can use the flexible LED tape lights to cover corners and reach tight spaces. You can also use them for under-cabinet lighting, signage, task lighting and much more.

Chapter 2

What factors do you need to consider before sourcing led strip lights?

Before you are buying led strip lights,here are some factors you need to consider.

Where do you want to install the led tube light?

The type and kind of LED strip you buy depends on your lighting task. For example, indoor mood lighting will require a different type of LED ribbon light than outdoor industrial lighting.

First, you need to decide whether you want to install the LED light strips indoor, outdoor, or both. Then decide what kind of lighting you require:

  • Accent or Mood Lighting
  • Under-Cabinet or Stair Lighting
  • Task Lighting
  • Signage
  • Industrial Lighting
  • Customized Lighting

Having a clear purpose in mind will help you streamline the process of choosing the perfect LED light strip. It will also help focus your search so you know exactly what to look for and where to look for it.

Which type of led ribbon do you need ?

Once you are aware of your lighting needs, measure the space/s that needs to be lighted. This will help you ascertain the size and length of the LED ribbon light you need.

Generally, LED light strips are available in a standard length of 5 meters. However, you can easily combine LED tapes together using LED light strip connectors. At Lightstec, we can customize LED light ribbon lights so they are just the right length for your project.

The size of LED strip is also affected by the type of lighting need. For example, our Ultra Slim 2835 LED Strip is perfect for indirect room lighting. With a width of 5mm only, the tape light is able to fit into tight spaces and is easily camouflaged.

How many led per meter of the led strip light do you want?

Determining the length of LED light strip is important, but it doesn’t tell you how much light the strip will produce. For that information, you need to check the LED density. LED density defines the number of LEDs per strip.

The greater the LED density, the brighter the light the LED tape will produce. LED density depends on the purpose of lighting but as a rule, an LED light strip should not have less than 30 LEDs/ meter. We give our customers the option to choose the LED density they want for their project. Our LED light strips contain 30 LEDs/meter up to 120 LEDs/meter.

Another important consideration is to check the LED pitch. This refers to the distance between two LEDs on a single strip. A larger distance will lead to dark spots and visible hot spots. This will also affect the overall brightness of the ribbon light.

What color of the led light strips do you want?

LEDs light strips can produce almost all colors under the sun. Based on color, there are three types of LED light strips:

  1. White LED light strips help produce white light (warm and cool).
  2. RGB LED light strips help produce the colors red, green, blue, orange and any other colors on the spectrum that can be produced by combining these colors together.
  3. RGBW LED light strips contain a combination of white light LEDs and RGB LEDs. They can produce white light in combination with other colors.

 

In addition to color, there are two other factors that affect the way light will be displayed:

Color Temperature or CCT:

CCT stands for Correlated Color Temperature and it defines how warm or cool white light will look. CCT is measured in Kelvins. Warm white light has a lower Kelvin rating while cool white light has a higher Kelvin rating.

Generally, a Kelvin rating from 2000-3000 is used to define warm white light. Warm white light looks orange to yellow depending upon the Kelvin rating. A Kelvin rating of 3000 to 4000 shows a color temperature that is neither too warm nor too cool. Kelvin ratings over 4000 showcase cool white light. Cool white light can go from pure white to bluish white.

Kelvin rating helps you understand what your white light LED light strips will actually look like. Here is a table that can help you see Kelvin ratings of LED light tapes and their recommended use.

 

LED Light Strip CCTRecommended Application
2700K - 3000Kliving rooms, bedrooms, waiting areas, lobbies
3500K - 4100Kkitchens, hallways, staircases, elevators
5000K - 6000Kgarages, bathrooms, offices, industrial spaces

 

 

Color Rendering Index or CRI:

CRI measures how colors look under a light source as compared to what they look like under sunlight. It is easier to distinguish between similar-looking colors like navy blue and black under natural sunlight. The Color Rendering Index tells you whether the light produced by your LED light strip helps you do the same.

The index is measured using the scale 0-100. The higher the CRI the better you’ll be able to see each individual color. CRI is also used to determine the hue, vividness, and color harmony of the color produced by your LED light strips.

A CRI rating of 80 and above is considered to be acceptable for most domestic lighting applications. Commercial and industrial lighting spaces require LED light strips with a CRI rating higher than 90.

 

How many lumen of led strip light per meter do you want?

You can determine the brightness of a LED light strip by checking its Lumen information. LED lights use Lumens instead of Watts to measure their brightness. The greater the Lumen rating of a LED light tape, the brighter it is.

Lumen rating combined with LED density and pitch gives an accurate representation of LED light strip brightness. Though you can choose to make your space as bright as you want, here is a table relaying recommended lumens for specific lighting tasks:

Lighting TaskRecommended Lumens
Accent Lighting (staircase, pool)150-250 lm/ft
Nearby Task Lighting (lamps, under-cabinet)175-550 lm/ft
Distant Task Lighting (ceiling)350-1200 lm/ft
Indirect Lighting (backlights)375-1200 lm/ft
Signage (hoardings)500-1200 lm/ft

How is the wattage of the led strip light do you want?

It is important to find out the power draw of a LED strip before you make a purchasing decision. The power draw of an LED strip defines how much power it needs to work. LED power draw is calculated in watts.

The wattage of LED strips lights can be presented as watts per meter, watts per foot, or watts per LED. Make sure to double check this information because it will help you calculate the total power your LED light tape project is going to consume. At Lightstec, we provide wattage information for all our LED light strips as watts per meter.

To calculate the total power draw of your LED light project, simply multiply the wattage per meter to the total length of LED strip lights you’re using. It is recommended to make sure that your LED light ribbons don’t draw more than 80% of your total power supply.

LED light strip voltage is another factor you should consider when choosing the right LED light tape. LED strips are available in both 12V and 24V. Make sure to choose the one that is compatible with your power supply.

How to install the led strip light?

The last factor to consider before buying a LED light strip is how you’re going to install it. Some flexible LED light strips come with adhesives on the back. You only need to stick them to a clean surface and you’re done. Some others require a little more work and you may even need a professional to step in.

Here are some questions you need to ask yourself to determine how your LED light strips will be installed:

  • Do I need a single LED light strip to cover my space or multiple strips?
  • If I’m using multiple LED light strips, how many breaks do I need to put in?
  • Do I need flexible LED light strips or rigid LED light strips?
  • How far is the power supply from my LED light strips?
  • Do I need connectors or extra wire to reach the power supply?
  • Do my LED light strips require any special coating?
  • Do I need to programme my LED light strip?

Now that your LED strip lights are the right length, it is time to connect them to your led power supply. There are three power supply options for your LED light strips:

  • Plug-In Power Supply: You can use desktop plug-insto connect to your wall plugs directly. This is the easiest and most convenient way to power your LED lights. Just make sure to get the plug-in that supports the right wattage.
  • Hardwire Power Supply: You can connect your LED strip wires directly to the power supply wires with this option. This method is a little more complicated and requires you to know about power supply wiring.
  • Battery: You can use a 12V battery pack to power your LED light strips.

Plug-ins are generally recommended for residential LED tape use or smaller projects. You should use hardwire power supply for industrial and commercial LED lighting as well as larger events. Batteries are great for using LED light ribbons on small outdoor parties.

Mounting LED Strip Lights

Your LED light strips are now ready to go up. If you’re using flexible LED light strips then all you have to do is take off the cover on the adhesive at the back of the strip and paste the strip wherever you like. LED strip not sticking properly? Check out our troubleshooting section to find a solution.

Looking to mount your flexible LED strips on an uneven surface? Try our led aluminum profile for LED strips. It makes it super easy to mount your flexible LED strips on any surface and doesn’t affect the brightness or beam of the light.

Rigid LED strips come with an aluminum casing so they need to be mounted using wall connectors. You can easily find these connectors at any hardware store and they are very easy to install.
Once your LED light strips are installed, sit back, relax and bask in their light.

Dimming LED Strip Lights

One of the best features of LED strip lights is that you can adjust their brightness. You can do that easily with LED light controllers. There are four types of LED light controllers in the market:

  • RF Controllers: These are the standard LED light strip controllers that let you adjust the brightness and color of LED lights. These controllers are available in both analog and digital forms. You can also find single-zone RF controllers that help you control LED strips in one area and multi zone RF controllers that let you manage multiple areas at the same time.
  • Inline Controllers: These controllers are installed between the power supply and your LED light tape. You can control the brightness and color of the strip with these controllers. You can easily install them by using LED connectors.
  • DMX Controllers: Control larger areas and multiple LED light strips with DMX controllers. They are available in a number of forms including wall panels, smart touch screen panels, and even as an app on your phone.
  • DALI Controllers: Recommended for big industrial spaces, factories, and warehouses, DALI controllers let you pre-programme your LED light ribbons.

The type of controller you require depends on the size of your project, the kind of light affects you want, and your comfort level with technology.

How to Solve Common LED Light Strips Problems?

You’ve done your homework and bought and installed the perfect LED light strips. But say they don’t light up, or start flickering. What do you do then? What you should do is go through this FAQ section to troubleshoot the problem.

I plugged in my LED strips but they don’t turn on or are flickering, what’s wrong?

The first thing you need to do is check the wires. Turn the power supply off and check the wire connections. If any wire is loose, tighten it.

Next check the converters. See if the red and black wires are connected to right input terminals on the converter. Is the converter in an open area that is well ventilated? Also, check to make sure your converter isn’t overloaded. Recheck your wattage calculations to see if you’ve accidentally put too much load on the converter.

My flexible LED strip lights keep coming off. What do I do?

The adhesive at the back of flexible LED strip lights is designed for smooth flat surfaces. If the surface has some texture or isn’t completely flat, there is a chance the LED strip won’t stick.

One solution is to use extra adhesive tape to double bond your LED strip to the surface. Just layer 3M tape on the surface and stick your LED strip on top of it.

Another tip is to use mounting clips to secure your LED tape lights. These clips are easily available in hardware stores. You can also use LED casings to make sure the LED strip stays in place.

The ends of my LED light strip keep flickering. Why is that?

The LEDs at the end of an LED light tape may flicker or die because of a phenomenon known as Voltage Drop. Essentially, if your LED strip is too long, the furthest end from the power supply doesn’t get enough power to light all the LEDs so they die or flicker.

The solution for this is pretty simple. Make sure the distance between the power source and the LED strip isn’t greater than 20ft. You can also use thicker wire gauges between the power source and the LED tape to remedy this problem.

Lastly, to cover a longer area, use either parallel connections between the power supply and LED strips or different connections for each LED strip.

I plugged in my RGB LED light strip but it is only displaying white light.
How did that happen?

Your RGB LED light strip might be displaying white light due to reverse polarity. Polarity defines the direction on an electric current. Since LEDs are semiconductors, they only allow the current to flow in one direction.

This means that if you’ve connected the light tape on the wrong side, the current will flow in the wrong direction. When this happens your LED light tape would either not work at all, or in case of RGB light tape, it will emit white light.

To remedy this, simply flip the RGB LED light strip to connect the opposite end to the power supply.

My LED light strips was working fine but they were hot to the touch.
Should I be worried?

LED light ribbons don’t emit heat the same way as incandescent or halogen bulbs. This means they shouldn’t feel hot to the touch. If they are, this means something is wrong with the power supply.

LED light strips come in either 12V or 24V capacity. Most 12V LED light strips are great for shorter runs, like decorative LED light strips or accent lighting. 24V LED light ribbons are better for longer running projects like staircase lighting or under-cabinet lighting. It is important to use the right driver to connect your strips to the power supply.

If you use a 12V driver with a 24V LED strip, it will cause the lights to flicker and dim because of the low power supply. Overpowering LED light ribbons will cause them to be hot to the touch. This will ultimately cause the values in your LED light strip to fray and your strip will be damaged. Check your power supply and driver to make sure you’re not under or overpowering your LED light strips.

Let’s check where we should by the led strip light from?

Factory or wholesaler

Since flexible LED light strips are gaining popularity every day, you can see a mushroom growth of retailers that house all kinds of different LED products. But should you buy LED ribbon lights in batch from LED retailers? Or should you choose LED manufacturers? Look at the comparison chart to see why you should buy flexible LED light strips online in batch from a manufacturer.

Look at the comparison chart below to see why you should buy LED light strips online in batch from a manufacturer.

Kinds of led strip light

Factory:LED manufacturers have a greater variety of LED products available. Since they have the ability to produce LED products, they may be the first ones to house innovative LED products.

Wholesaler:Retailers have a limited variety of LED products since they depend on LED manufacturers for the products they house.

Quality:

Factory:You can easily gauge the quality of LED manufacturers by looking at their LED production process and getting information regarding the QA tests they perform. LED manufacturers have better quality products anyway, since they have to comply with certain industry standards.

Wholesaler:Retailers may sell LED products they got from LED manufacturers or other suppliers. So it is hard to check the quality of the products. Retailers also don’t usually have information regarding the production of LED products so you can’t verify if the products they sell meet the industry standards.

Custom-made:

Factory:LED manufacturers have the ability to create customized LED products as per your requirements.

Wholesaler:LED retailers cannot custom-make any LED products for you. You only have the option of choosing from whatever products they sell.

Choosing an LED manufacturer for your wholesale ribbon LED orders is preferable because it gives you the chance to discuss the nuances of your project with a professional. Good LED manufacturers can help you decide which LED product is best suited for your project.

Things need to consider before buying led strip light in batch

There are many things to consider when you’re buying SMD LED strips in batch. You need to make sure you choose LED light strips that have the right technical specs, shape, and size you need.Here are some other points to consider:

Product Quantity

Make sure you double check the exact quantity of strips you’re ordering. Different SMD LED manufacturers use different metrics for the overall size and length of an LED tape light. For example, at Lightstec, our LED tapes are 0.5 meters in length, we then connect different strips together to get you the length you want.

Product Quality

Checking the quality of SMD LED tapes is really important before you buy any, especially in batch. Check the LED manufacturer’s LED production process to see what kind of raw materials and processes they use. Also, inquire about their quality testing procedures and if they have any industry-relevant certifications.

Product Lifetime

Ask the LED manufacturer or supplier to relay the exact time or time frame it will take for your LED light strips to be delivered. A lot of LED manufacturing companies use third-party courier services to deliver their products. In this case, they should provide you with the tracking details so you can know when your LED products will arrive. Custom or batch orders usually have longer turnaround times.

Product Accessories

Aside from the light strips, it is recommended that you buy your mounting supplies, power cords,LED cabinet sensor, and LED controllers from the same LED manufacturer. This is will not only be more convenient but will also ensure that all the accessories are compatible with your LED strip lights. This is especially true if you’re buying RGB and RGBW SMD LED light strips as controllers for such strips need to perform multiple tasks.

Step 2: Let us know what features you want to customize

Once you reach out to us, we will walk you through all the features you can customize. Since we offer customization of LEDs on a PCB level, we can offer you more control over the technical design of your SMD LED tape lights. Here are some of the features we can tailor-make for you:

Size and Shape

The size and shape of your LED strips depend on your project. If you’re lighting a large warehouse, for example, you would need longer strips to cover the surface area. Task lighting on retail shelves will require leaner, shorter strips.

At Lightstec, our LED manufacturing unit yields LED tapes in a standard length of 5 meters. We then combine multiple strips together through soldering to get your custom length of the strip. If you’re lighting a larger project, chances are you’ll require flexible LED tape lights of different custom lengths. Our soldering process makes the process more efficient. You can also increase the length of your LED light strip by using a LED connector.

The width of your SMD LED ribbon lights depends on a number of factors. If you want a brighter light, we’ll need to install either larger LEDs or increase the LED density. In case of the former, a wider strip will be used to accommodate the size of the LEDs. Flexible LED light strips used in under cabinet lighting, accent lighting, retail lighting and more need to be thinner so as to not affect the aesthetics of your project.

The custom length and width of the SMD LED strips you want also depends on your preference. For example, high-density LED strips will have a greater power draw than an LED strip with larger LEDs mounted on it. Both will have the same luminous intensity. So, you’ll have to make the decision of choosing aesthetics over efficiency. No matter your choice, we’ll deliver exactly what’s promised.

Brightness

We can help design customized SMD LED strips that have just the right luminous intensity for your projects. For example, if you’re lighting a hospital, you’ll need bright white light in the reception, waiting areas, and offices. Warm, cozy, diffused light will suit the atmosphere of a cafe. While dimmable RGB lights will elevate the aesthetics of a club.

The brightness of an LED strip is measured in Lumens. The higher the number of Lumens, the brighter the LED light. Lumens may be represented per meter or per foot of LED light strip. You can tell us how many lumens you want your strip to produce and we will design your flexible LED strip accordingly. If you’re unsure of how many lumens you will need.

     

Lighting TaskRecommended Lumens
Accent Lighting
(staircase, pool)
150-250 lm/ft
Nearby Task Lighting
(lamps, under-cabinet)
175-550 lm/ft
Distant Task Lighting
(ceiling)
350-1200 lm/ft
Indirect Lighting
(backlights)
375-1200 lm/ft
Signage (hoardings)500-1200 lm/ft

We can make your LED strip fully dimmable on request. That way you can control the brightness of the LED tape light as and when you want. Our LED strips are compatible with all kinds of LED strip light controllers. We can also provide customized RF LED tape light controllers that can help you manage the brightness level of single color, RGB, and RGBW ribbon lights.

Lighting Color

You can choose the color of your SMD LED light strips when ordering customized tape lights. We offer many different colors and color combinations. You can decide to use LEDs in RGB, RGBW (warm white light and white light), and single color lights.

If you choose a 3-in-1 or 4-in-1 LED ribbon light you will be able to change the colors of your LED strip lights. For example, if you choose a RGBW LED tape light, you won’t just be able to use red, green, blue, and white light. You can also choose any color in the spectrum that can be created using the three primary colors like violet, yellow, orange and more. We provide RF LED controllers that let you change the color of your RGB and RGBW LED tape lights.

Lighting color can really add to the personality of your space or project. So choose the one you want wisely and we’ll create LED tape lights that follow suit.

Color Temperature (CCT)

Color temperature defines how warm or cool the white light produced by your SMD LED tape lights will look. Color temperature affects the overall mood and ambiance of your space. Warm white light can make your room look cozy and comfortable. It is usually used in spaces where you don’t want very bright light like living rooms, lobbies, foyers and more.

Cool white light makes your space look more open and airy. It is great for use in spaces where you need bright light, for example, factories, warehouses, offices, hospitals, schools and more. You can choose warm white light LED strips, cool white light LED strips or a combination of both LEDs to light your space.

CCT is measured in Kelvins. You can tell us the kelvin rating for your LED tape lights and we’ll design them accordingly. If you aren’t sure about the Kelvin information, here is a simple tip. The higher the Kelvin rating, the cooler the white light.

Kelvin ratings from 2000 to 3000 showcase warm white light. A Kelvin rating of 3000-4000 shows a color temperature that is neither too cool nor too warm. Any rating over 4000 depicts cool white light.

Still confused? Here is a table to help you figure out the color temperature for your LED light strips.

LED Light Strip CCTRecommended Application
2700K - 3000Kliving rooms, bedrooms,
waiting areas, lobbies
3500K - 4100Kkitchens, hallways,
staircases, elevators
5000K - 6000Kgarages, bathrooms,
offices, industrial spaces

CCT should not be confused with the brightness of LED light strips. You can choose to order a LED strip that has a spectrum of white light. Our LED tape lights can produce light from 2000K to 6500K. So you can go as warm and as cool with your white light as you want.

You can adjust both the brightness and color temperature through LED light strip controllers. Choose a color or colors for your bespoke LED ribbon lights and we’ll design your strips to your specifications.

Color Rendering (CRI)

Color Rendering Index or CRI refers to how colors look like under a light source as compared to what they like in direct sunlight. Natural sunlight makes colors look more vivid and clear. To replicate that effect in SMD LED light strips, you need to check the CRI for that particular tape light.

CRI is usually measured in a scale of 0-100. A higher CRI is indicative of a clearer, more accurate visual experience. You should choose to customize LED strips with a higher CRI if you want to install them in spaces like laboratories, operation theater, factories, and more. Lower CRI LED light strips can be used in spaces like cafes, hotels, homes, and more.

Generally, a CRI of 80 and above is considered acceptable for domestic and some commercial lighting applications. For industrial lighting, choose LED strips with a CRI greater than 90. We can produce custom LED strips at the CRI of your choice. All our strips go through the highest LED strips test to ensure your visual experience is as vivid as possible.

Step 3: Select accessories

After you’ve decided on the technical specifications of your customized LED ribbon lights, it is time to choose the accessories. Our promise of a one-window lighting solution to your needs is fulfilled by these adapted accessories. These accessories will help you install, operate, and modify your LED light strips.

We house a number of compatible accessories that you can use to ensure your customized LED tape lights work flawlessly and last for ages. These include LED mounts, LED connectors, LED controllers, and more.

Aluminum Mounting

LED light strip light housing
is great to ensure your SMD LED tapes are protected and last a long time. They also help you mount your LED strips to uneven surfaces and novelty spaces. Another benefit of using these extrusions is that you can camouflage your LED light strips so they don’t go against the aesthetics of your space.

Lightstec offers aluminum mounts that help you install your LED ribbon lights easily. The mounts are shaped in a way to ensure your strips are fully encased. The mounts themselves are very convenient to install in your space.

We can customize our aluminum mounts so you can install them anywhere and any way you like. Surface mounted, recessed, pendant, corner, round, stair, and flexible versions of the mounts are available. Our aluminum mounts are cut by a CNC machine to ensure there are no rough edges. They are sturdy and waterproof.

Aluminum mounts keep your strips secured. They help dissipate the heat given off by the LEDs properly. Our aluminum housing is designed to ensure the luminous intensity of the strips isn’t affected. This means your LED lights will perform as promised.

Power Supply

Your customized LED ribbon lights will need a compatible power supply source to run smoothly without interference. It is important to choose a compatible power supply because it affects the way your SMD LED strips will perform, their longevity, and maintenance.

Lightstec offers two kinds of power supplies:
