12V 5m iP65+ RGB 5050 High Output LED Strip - 60 LEDs/m (strip only)
LED Montreal offers you a simple and affordable way to color up your environment with the 12V DC 5m iP65+ RGB 5050 LED Strip. Ideal for usage in your kitchen or bedroom, it’s also everyone’s favorite to light up your home bar space. It is also fantastic to get the interior of your boat or RV ready for your next party. This Strip is not recommended for usage outside a boat or a vehicle.
The technical stuff: RGB Stands for Red-Green-Blue. 5050 RGB Chips give a 120-degree light beam and feature each of these 3 colors of LED lights within each chip: This allows to create up to two million different colors by mixing the red, green and blue at different levels. The amount of colors that can be achieved will depend on the RGB controller that you use. Note that the RGB Chip does not create a true white. Should you want to use your Strip to both enhance your décor and get an ambient white light, we strongly suggest using our RGBW Strip that includes a white LED diode within the 5050 chips.
RGB LED Strips have a 4-wire connection, meaning that they can only be operated through an RGB controller. The controller will allow you to dim your strip and change colors manually or through automated color change patterns. The strip cannot be dimmed through a standard wall dimmer. Forecast a power supply at 12V DC of 18W (1.5A) per meter for your installation. As stated earlier, this strip comes in a 5m spool. You will find all the specs of the RGB LED Strip at the bottom of this page.
You can customize your LED Lighting set up as this Strip can be cut every 3 LEDS. The RGB LED Strip is flexible vertically but cannot be bent horizontally. Should you need to bypass an obstacle or turn a corner, we recommend removing the iP65+ Plus sleeve with an x-acto knife and solder 4 strand wire onto your Strip. Soldering ensures a solid connection and minimal voltage loss. Quick connectors are available and are only recommended if you have 1 or 2 connections to make. Should you want to use a connector, use an iP20 grip and clip connector while making sure the remove both the top and bottom silicone of the Strip. Do not use connectors if the Strip is located in a wet or damp environment.
Your RGB LED Strip is equipped with a high-quality 3M adhesive. This adhesive is intended for installation on a clean, non-glossy metallic surface. LED Strips were not designed to be installed on varnished or glossy wood surfaces. For porous surfaces, wet and marine environments we suggest using the Double Sided 3M Acrylic Tape for LED Strips.
The CDNLUX Difference:
There are many features that make the CDNLUX LED Strips stand out from the competition. CDNLUX uses Authentic Epistar chips on their LED Strips. This means that you will get the best brightness for your money out of each LED Chip. As a matter of fact, Epistar Chips are 25 to 30% brighter than chips used on lower prices LED Strips that you would find on discount websites.
CDNLUX LED Strip are cULus Listed. This means that they have been tested for electrical safety according to Canadian Standards when powered with a compliant Class 2 Power supply. It also means that they will pass the toughest building inspections both in Canada and the USA.
CNDLUX uses iP65 Plus Technology on their Strips. Lower end strips are waterproofed with silicon glue that tends to crack and lose its transparency with time. Furthermore, the silicon glue is only laid on top of the strip, leaving the back of the circuit board to humidity. The CDNLUX iP65 Plus Technology protects your strip all around with a silicon sleeve that remains clear and flexible through time. The iP65 Plus coating is so efficient that a Strip equipped with this technology could be used outdoors, inside an aluminum channel in most provinces. If you are experiencing typical Canadian winters, we suggest using our iP67 Strip for outdoor applications.
With CDNLUX, you’re never on your own. Your LED Strip comes with the tech support and troubleshooting that you need to complete your project. All our representatives are based in Canada and are fully bilingual. You can reach us by email or by phone during business hours. Definitely not something you would get from an overseas seller on a discount website.
