Ceiling lights led tape is today used in different facilities in shopping centers residential homes restaurants bars hotels etc. High popularity is due to the fact that the lighting devices based on light emitting diodes are simple to install and operate but very effective kind of lighting.


On the market a wide range of led strips. To choose the best and most suitable option should be to pay attention to a set of parameters. Guided only by a characteristic difficult to find a led strip in accordance with all requirements.

Some of the parameters

Ceiling lighting is better to choose white or a multicolored ribbon. If you install a model with a color emission of one color but very soon want to change the color of light emission. Whereas neutral white light and multicolor version gives you more opportunities for example want to change the colour for which purpose the control panel.

But in addition to these there are other characteristics of diodes, their number degree of protection of the strip by means which provide reliability and efficiency.

Now offers tape with emitters of the following types SMD 2835 SMD 3528 SMD 5050 SMD 5630 SMD 5730. The most popular models with diodes SMD 5050 SMD 3528. Connected to the feed element 12 or 24 V depending upon the type of the tape. Option SMD 5630 is more powerful backlight so it must be connected to the power supply 36.

The designation encrypted the dimensions of the diodes, for example, 28 x 35 mm in the performance of the SMD 2835. From the dimensions of the emitter will depend on the brightness.

The type of emitter it is possible to determine the color. For example the execution of SMD 3528 contain only one crystal and therefore represent a group of monochromatic diodes. And the emitter SMD 5050 has three crystals of different colors. Accordingly, such diodes are shining brighter and can change color.

If you select a tape with this type of emitters 1 power m which exceeds 10 W, it is possible to arrange the main lighting. For local and decorative lighting suitable performance with a lower load level.

Led strips are divided into types according to the number of emitters per meter length of the strip. The main performance 30 60 120 240 pieces depending on the type of diode tape can be single row or double row.

Classification by number of diodes

For example, if you select SMD 3528 led quantity 240 PCs per 1 m strip of the diodes in this model are installed in two rows. Performed SMD 5050 emitters are arranged in two rows with the number 120.

The lighting will be more intense if you use a tape with a large diode 5050 120 PCs items and you can organize the main lighting system. Tape with a minimum number of emitters used for decorative lighting.

There are different versions differ in terms of resistance to moisture. The main group of tape devices unprotected-protected moisture-proof. The first version of these can only be used in dry rooms where there is no risk of moisture droplets or direct water flow.

Waterproof performance able to work effectively in rooms with high humidity levels the facade of the bath bathroom.

Moisture proof the model operate in conditions of direct exposure to water aquariums, pool, etc. Lighting with this illumination characterized by a degree of protection IP67 IP68. Less protected execution IP65 IP54.

One of the important criteria in the selection of quality products especially when it comes to light emitting diodes. This depends on the duration of the strip. It is therefore recommended to choose only proven brands, Gauss, Feron, Navigator Era. The fact that reliable manufacturers use high quality crystals which degrade after a long time. Which means the longevity of led strips will be longer.

Initially cheaper and more expensive models Shine brightly. But the difference between them lies in the fact that in the first case, the diodes are rapidly degraded which means a decrease in the efficiency of luminescence. To determine the quality of the product if you pay attention to exactly how the Assembly is soldered diodes resistors and some parts of the tape.

Led tape is selected on the basis of whether its key features requirements and configuration of the room. This takes into account the type of the used diodes and their number that specifies the intensity of the lighting. To select the supply item you need to know the capacity of the tape its voltage supply. The color of the ribbon should be chosen according to your own preferences and interior design.

Therefore, the lighting is quite possible to organize using only the tape on the base of the diodes. Illumination of this type is easily installed thanks to the adhesive layer on the reverse side of the strip consumes little power, is simple to operate.

The main criteria for selecting the type of diodes and their number per 1 m length and power supply voltage color of light emission by the manufacturer. If you choose the right tape you can obtain an effective light source of any colour and length.
