What does RGB 5050 mean?

RGB LED lights

    5050 LED Strips. These LED strips are called SMD 5050 because the chip dimensions are 5.0 mm x 5.0 mm. These LED chips contain 3 LED chips on a single frame (sometimes called tri-chips) and are much brighter than 3528 LED strips.

How do I know which transformer I need for an LED strip?

    The LED strip installation we have has a total power of 144 W, to which we have to add a safety margin of 20-25%. So we will have to multiply this power by 1.2. Therefore, a transformer that we can use for this type of installation is a 200 W transformer with 12 V.

What is the difference between 2835 and 5050 LED lights?

    Due to its size, it is also one of the best options for making LED strips. The new 2835 LED strip technology achieves the same luminous intensity as its predecessors, the SMD 5050 LED strips, with 10-15% lower power consumption and up to 40% lower economic cost.

What does SMD mean in LED strips?

    SMD stands for Surface Mounted Device and refers to the way the LEDs are mounted on the strip. There are several types of SMD; the most common are SMD5050, SMD3528, and SMD3014. The numbers refer to the dimensions of the chips.

What is the best type of LED?

    The COB LED provides higher luminous efficiency than the SMD, around 110Lm/W; this is why it is gradually gaining popularity. Since it allows for more luminous power than SMD with the same size, we can already find it in many LED bulbs.

What is an LED, and how does it work?

    An LED is a device that allows the passage of current in only one direction and, when polarized emits a beam of light. It works like a standard diode, but when it receives an electric current, it emits light. Depending on the material of which the semiconductor is made, LEDs will project lights of different colors.

What are the most energy-efficient lamps?

    LED bulbs consume 80% less energy and generate hardly any heat, while energy-saving bulbs consume 70% less energy but lose some of it in the form of heat. In addition, the lifetime of LED bulbs is longer than that of energy-saving bulbs.

How do you measure the consumption of an LED?

    Imagine that you have a 10 watt LED bulb running for 10 hours. The partial consumption will be 10 watts/hour, and the overall consumption will be 100 watts/hour. This, converted to the billing unit, would be 0.1 kwh. Now you apply the cost per kWh and divide by 10.

How to reset a LED strip?

    Reset LED Strips

    Plugin your LED strips and turn them on for a few seconds.

    Please turn it off and then remove the power adapter without turning off the remote control.

    Press and hold the power button for a few seconds and then reconnect the power supply.

How many LED strips can be connected?

    Most manufacturers recommend a maximum of 2 to 3 strips to power a single power supply. What is essential to know is that with each LED strip added, the power supply power must be increased.

Why don’t my LED lights turn on?

    As stated earlier, when LED strip lights do not receive sufficient cooling, they overheat, and the diodes can change color. One of the main ways this can occur is poor air ventilation around the lighting fixture.
