In February, we show the step by step how to install a LED Ribbon. With the emergence of increasingly versatile products, the Golden Lamps released the tape LED RGB IP 20, with colorful light, ideal for indoor environments. The highlight of this product is the flexibility, since you can use both for lighting and for decoration.
The installation process differs little from presented in the previous tutorial, but we consider that you have not read the previous walkthrough and want to learn exactly how to install the color model. So, who accompanied the installation of LED Ribbon in the color temperature 2700 k/6000 k will see some repeated information and good looking. This process also discharge the use of welding, and has one more item: the controller. And you can get more from searchforpublicschools.
STEP BY STEP
You will need:
- 1 roll of tape may 20 metres IP RGB LED Golden
- 1 driver compatible with the configuration of tape
- 1 controller and 1 remote control (sold separately)
- 1 screwdriver
- 1 post
- Insulating tape
WHAT IS THE TAPE LED RGB?
LED RGB tape is self adhesive and flexible and generates several colors, among them stand out white, cold white, blue, red, yellow, green and RGB color model in which Red, green and blue are combined in various ways to reproduce other colors.
It is sold in rolls of 5 metres, with 30 options and 48 LEDs per meter. The consumer can cut by account as you want, but should not do so by metro, but cut at the seams of the modules. A module is a division that does not affect the functionality of the LEDs and each module has 5 cm. With 25000 hours average life, the product is available in two power options (48W and 30W).
The versatility on the tape is not just a matter of being able to post it in several places. The dimerization, change in speed in changing colors and dozens of combinations are attractive for this revolutionary product. You can change the colors, leave one steadily, “flasher”, and when tired of so much color, she allows the white light also. Who knew that Thomas Edison’s light bulb would turn into something so small and so versatile?
WHAT IS A DRIVER?
The driver is a power source that stabilizes the voltage from the mains. The network provides AC voltage and the driver fixes the voltage continuously. The driver must be used according to the tape purchased, according to instructions on the package. The points that should be considered when choosing are: current, output voltage and total power.
Can only be used one driver per roll of 5 meters of LED Ribbon. If you’re going to highlight parts of the tape, as for example 30 cm, you can use the recommended driver for 5 meters, or you can use a power driver and smaller size, which should be chosen based on the power of each LED which will take in these 30 cm. To avoid buying power driver, current and output voltage wrong, it is best to contact an electrician.
The RGB model demand index of 12V DC voltage. The driver must be of 60W, for any model of RGB LED Ribbon.
WHAT YOU CAN’T DO:
- Use 1 driver for two tapes
- Connect directly to the network
- Use driver with wrong specifications
- Not respecting the polarities of the tape and the driver
- Cut the wrong tape
WHAT IS A DRIVER?
The controller is a device which allows the programming of tape, using all your variety of colors. It must be connected between the tape and the driver. The control serves for programming and operation of the tape from a distance.
HOW TO INSTALL:
Switch off the mains in order to avoid the risk of shock. Start connecting the controller in the driver, the Red wire (positive) at the V + and the black wire (negative) in the V-.
Now connect the tape controller, holding with the screwdriver. Connect the blue wire in B, the green in the G, the Red R – corresponding to the colors of duct tape; and the white on the V +, to close the circuit.
The your installation will look like this:
Connection between the driver and the tape, with the RGB controller.
Now just connect the tape to the mains, using the post, very carefully to the polarities. In our case, to show better the installation for you, connect the socket driver. Then wrap the connection with electrical tape.
The connection is made with Post to connect the mains, or like we did in our example, the socket.
To your complete installation will look like this:
To install in the desired location, clean the surface with a dry cloth so as not to impair the grip. After fixing with self adhesive tape, just plugged into a socket/switch on the network.
CUT THE TAPE CORRECTLY, HOW DO I CONNECT ANOTHER PIECE WITHOUT WORMTAIL?
We must in this case do a welding wire with wormtail, and then use the duct tape. You need to be very careful, because the tape is small and the use of lots of soldering and put it in the wrong place can burn the circuits, damaging some LEDs. If you do not have practice with the soldering iron, you better ask the electrician.
The process of RGB Ribbon is even easier than the normal Ribbon, right? We clarify the main questions that came up in the comments in a text.
