LED light strips are divided into high-voltage light strips and low-voltage light strips by voltage.
The voltage of the high-voltage LED lamp is: 220v, which is the usual household voltage. Also called AC light strip.
Low-voltage LED strip voltages are: 12V and 24V, in addition to 3V, 36V and other low-voltage designs, also called DC strips.
The high-voltage LED light strips work with a voltage of 220v, which is a dangerous voltage and is suitable for places that cannot be touched by the human body.
The installation of high-voltage light strips is a little simpler than that of low-voltage light strips. It can be directly driven by a high-voltage driver and connected to a household power supply.
High-voltage LED light strips can usually carry 30-50 meters with a power supply.
During use, because With high voltage, it generates much more heat per unit length than low-voltage LED strips, which directly affects the life of high-voltage strips. Generally speaking, the service life of high-voltage strips is about 10,000 hours.
The low-voltage LED strip is a safe voltage when working with DC voltage. Human body contact is harmless and can be used in a variety of occasions.
Such as home improvement, outdoor building lighting, shopping mall atmosphere lighting design, landscape lighting design, parks, roads, bridges and other lighting designs can all be optimized for low-voltage LED strips.
Low-voltage LED strips, because they use DC power supply, the length of the strips is generally 5 meters, 10 meters, there will be a certain voltage drop beyond this length, currently using ic constant current design, the longest connection length of low-voltage LED strips can be Up to 15-30 meters.
Low-voltage LED strips have good heat dissipation performance and low light decay, and their service life can be as high as 30000-50000 hours.
High-voltage LED strips and low-voltage LED strips have their own advantages and disadvantages. In actual use, you can choose the strips according to the actual use occasions.
