FAQS

Q1: What is LED Lighting ?  

 

A1: LED lighting is a lamp or other light that uses LED as a source of illumination.

 

Different than the traditional bulb, LED can be put into traditional lamps and used like most other light bulbs. They are much more efficient than incandescent or fluorescent bulbs.  

LED stands for Light-Emitting Diode. That is, simply, a semiconductor device that converts electricity to light by using the movement of electrons. LED were invented in Russia in the 1920s.

There are many consumer advantages to LED over incandescent or fluorescent light bulbs. LED lights consume much less energy.

They are 300 percent more efficient than a compact fluorescent light (CFL), and 1,000 percent more efficient than an incandescent bulb.  

They have a very long life, about 50,000 hours of use at 70 percent of their original power. (LED don't burn out or flicker, they simply fade.) 

This works out to eight hours a day for 13 years at 70 percent power. A typical 60-watt incandescent bulb may last about 1,000 hours.

 

Q2: What is LED Strips?  

 

A2: LED strips are a type of Light Emitting Diode (LED) fixture.


The light strips are typically flexible, making them easy to use for a variety of lighting needs.

The LED light sources burn very cool to the touch and can save on energy costs compared to their incandescent counterparts, not to mention they can last for years.

They also emit a light that is very pure and white, closer to natural sunlight than any other manufactured light source. LED strips are commonly available in a range of festive colors, including red, blue, green and orange.

 

Although some strips are rigid, many LED strip fixtures are flexible, allowing them to be wrapped and adapted to a variety of conditions.

Many people choose to adorn their cars with LED for a special effect. For example, LED strips may be wrapped around the car's grill or placed in the front dash.

Some drivers also wrap them around the wheel well or attach them to the underside of the car. They can easily be trimmed, or several strips may be linked together, to adapt to a particular space.

 

Q3: What is the difference between IP20, IP65, IP67 and IP68 waterproof LED Stripes? 


A3:

IP20 is made by SMD LED mounted on the surface of flexible PCB  (Printed Circuit Board),  it is non-waterproof and for indoor use only. It should be installed on metal profiles and use protective cover against dust. Avoid sharp bending.

 

 

IP65 is coated by silicone glue on the surface of flexible PCB (Printed Circuit Board) and all LEDs. It is for Indoor use only, not for outdoor or wet places. Good thermal conducted metal profiles are needed for heat dissipation when installation.

 

 

IP67 (1: Full Silicone Tube) is made by silicone tube to fully cover the flexible LED Stripes with end caps at both ends sealed. It is for indoor and outdoor use. Avoiding acids and corrosive agents which can damage the surface transparency.

 

IP67 (2: U-Shape Silicone Tube + Silicone) is made by U-shape silicone tube and coated by a layer of silicone glue between the flexible led stripes and U-shape tube.

 

 

IP68 (1: PVC tube + Epoxy) is made by PVC tube and sealed with epoxy. It is for outdoor use. Please keep good air cooling for heat dissipation.  Avoid acids and corrosive agent.

 

IP68 (2: Silicone tube + silicone glue) is made by silicone tube and sealed with silicone glue. It is for outdoor use. Please keep good air cooling for heat dissipation. Avoid acids and corrosive agent.

It is fire-proof and lower temperature resistance.
