Designing Your LED Linear Lighting System
LED linear lighting is the use of many light-emitting diodes or LEDs that function collectively to form a strip of light along a narrow flexible printed circuit board. These products, referred to as strip light or LED tape light, are used to create remarkable lighting systems for a wide variety of purposes. This article analyzes some of the most common questions and best practices when creating an LED linear lighting system of your own!
Linear Lighting Products
Strip light or LED tape light is generally available in 5 or 10-meter reels and features an adhesive backing to aid in mounting. Since its creation, linear lighting has evolved quickly and dramatically. While single color strip light was originally all that was available, this is no longer the case. The options now consist of multi color strip light that includes red, green, and blue diodes (RGB), as well as versions that enable users to mix RGB with white (RGBW) or other colors. For example, the 5-in-1 LED strip light from Environmental Lights lets users combine RGB with 2700K and 6500K white. For more advanced projects, pixel strip light allows for independent control of the color and brightness of each LED on a strip. It’s up to you to decide which of the many linear lighting varieties best meets the criteria for your project..
