GLLS recommends that you power fixtures requiring power from both ends using the same power supply. We recommend this to prevent damage to fixtures due to voltage drop. This could occur in the event of one of the power supplies failing.
It is possible to connect multiple fixtures to one power supply; although you must have accounted for the wattage rating. We recommend using a power supply rated for 10-15% higher wattage than your draw.
It is possible to power our fixtures with a battery as they accept DC voltages. However, it can be difficult to find a battery the correct size for the fixture. It is possible to use 12V car batteries with our 12V products. A 24V battery for our more common 24V fixtures, however, could be difficult to find.
With a Dynamic White fixture, you can set specific color temperatures between warm white and cool white. These fixtures require DMX controllers as well as decoders for operation.
IP68 is the rating our fixtures have earned through rigorous testing. The 6 refers to protection against dust, and is the highest achievable number meaning our fixtures are dust-tight. The 8 refers to water ingress, and means the product is submersible up to 39in (1m) in water.
Lumen maintenance for LED Neon Flex is as follows: At 77°F (25°C), the fixture will take 70,000hrs to lose 30% of its output, while taking 90,000hrs to lose 50%. At 122°F (50°C), the fixture will take 50,000hrs to lose 30% of its output, while taking 70,000hrs to lose 50%. This is based on our LM80 report as well as our …
The smallest length we can make our fixtures is 3 cutting units. This is due to the requirements for lead wires.
You will require an anvil cutting tool for straight, clean cuts in the field. Other cutting tools risk damaging the PCB as well as creating jagged cuts that prevent a weather-tight seal.
No, we do not carry rope light, our fixtures are ribbon lights. We manufacture them with a flexible circuit board inside rather than wires.
This determines the side of the fixture we install the lead on. It is mainly important in Seamless as well as Submersible side exit leads. Please see this blog post for more detailed information on types of ends.
