With a white LED added to the red, green and blue (RGB) LEDs, this tape lighting represents a new development in color-customizable LED lighting.
Before, the only way to get a white light with color-adjustable tape lights was by setting the three colors to maximum intensity, resulting in a slightly muddled white light. The addition of a white LED lets you switch to a clean, soft 3000K white light which can be adjusted for brightness, and can also be mixed with colors to increase the range of adjustment. By adjusting the level of each base color (much like mixing paint) you can set the lighting to almost any color, including pastel tones and variations of white.
The 30 LEDs per metre (9 LEDs per foot) density is well suited for decorative lighting such as above cabinets, in coves or on tray ceilings, where ambience is the primary purpose of the lighting.
The factory-assembled kit supplies an 8' (2.5m) roll of tape light, a splice connector for in-line strip-to-strip connections, a wire-lead connector to extend two sections around corners, plus two wire support clips and installation instructions. To allow a custom fit, the tape lighting can be cut to length with scissors at markings on the copper pads spaced 6 1/2" apart, and is backed with a high-tack peel-and-stick adhesive that makes mounting easy.
The lighting is CSA listed to UL standard 8750 and comes with a 3-year warranty. The LEDs are rated for 65,000 hours of continuous use and use 24-volt low-voltage power, making them exceptionally energy-efficient. The lighting requires a 24V DC power supply with enough wattage to suit the intended application, some wiring and a color controller, all available separately. While not required, you may want to add an on/off switch. We also offer channels and diffusers for more refined installations.
This kit is not compatible with our 12V LED lighting system.
