Large number of RGB LED strip light project

I was referring to the HLG range.

You can go as large as 320w in the meanwell range 12/24v drivers, in my experience with RGB control you usually have to run DC>Controller>strip.
In every project I have done…

17 metres of LED strip lights

Ok that makes sense then, when I have used those type of controllers getting them to sync every time has been a hassle.

7 years7 yearsthink_wisethink_wise posted:

Did one remote work for all controllers simultaneously?

7 years7 yearsthink_wisethink_wise posted:

What sort of controllers did you use for the colors?

Your are using RGB strip so its not that simple, if it were single color then you would be fine with either of the solutions above.

Hi MrsT12,

LED Strip Lighting failing

Strip lighting is a real tough thing to navigate. There are so many chip options and wiring options that make it hard to recommend anything specific.
The goods news is…

Advice on these led lights please?

The beam angle "should" be measured at half lux which is 50% of the light. Since a lot of companies are using lenses now the light is quite controllable, which…

Floor & Stair downlights

I believe you can buy a 'slab canister' which mounts in the concrete slab and has a modified mounting method for the downlights:

It is very important to remember that the beam angle stated (if correct) is only 50% of the light.

nearly certain using a power board in the roof for lighting purposes is not legal.

Unfortunately its going to be down to testing them for yourself. Very few companies will advertise specifically which chips they use.
Someone mentioned a website "LED benchmark", which has some pretty…

PHL is exactly right the kelvin rating and color of the light can be two different things.

There are many more factors to what light 'appears' like upon leaving an LED…

LED downlights with dimmer dial question?

I am not sure whether the 450P has been upgraded but I have not seen it run on any LED products.

I cant comment exactly on the LIFX product but I know some of these RGBW chips dont utilise their full power output on all colors. It is possible to have…

That starburst fixture is going to be much brighter than any of the LIFX products. You are downgrading the output fairly significantly to cater for LIFX.
That said all you need…

Also here is a great example of how heat can affect bulb vs fitting.

That is a pretty decent site. Shows some pretty big discrepancies.

I do agree its a bit of a pain, because keeping the R value of your insulation would be great.

I would strongly suggest not using covers for LED fixtures. It will most definitely lead to premature failure of the chip. This time frame could still be measured in years…

yes you would need an assembly regardless of MR16/GU10 for LIFX.

If your lights are flickering on mainstream dimmers then its the drivers problem. If your downlight/fan company is cutting costs on drivers then there is a chance they will flicker.

Incandescent & halogen downlights??

Given the same reflector angle the diameter will play little part in beam spread. The lights are either the same beam angle or they are not.

For a new install I cant see a reason to ever use MR16.
