What is a Rigid LED Strip Lights?
Rigid LED strip light is a type of linear lighting fixture that consist of individual light-emitting diodes (LEDs) mounted on a rigid circuit board. Unlike flexible LED strips, the rigid variant cannot be bent freely and maintains a straight form.
Rigid LED light strips or light bars provide an excellent solution for custom linear lighting applications where light fixtures need to be compact yet efficiently illuminate tight spaces in the most efficient way possible. These low voltage rigid LED light bars boast a slim design, small profile, and come in various lengths, brightness options, and colors.
If you are looking for smart architectural lighting solutions for commercial or industrial settings, Wired4signs USA offers a variety of low voltage rigid LED strips for both decorative and lighting purposes. Our selection includes discrete through-hole LEDs and Surface mount LED emitters, available in a wide range of packages. We also offer a selection of flexible LED strips for your convenience.
Applications of Rigid LED Strip Lights
- Under-Cabinet Lighting: Perfect for illuminating countertops and workspaces, providing functional and aesthetically pleasing lighting in kitchens and other areas.
- Showcase Lighting: Enhance product visibility and create an attractive display in retail environments or galleries with focused and customizable lighting.
- Light Box Billboard: Illuminate advertisements or graphics with even and vibrant lighting, ensuring maximum visibility and impact.
- Hotel Lighting: Create a welcoming atmosphere, highlight architectural features, and offer ambient lighting in various spaces within hotels.
- Bar Lighting: Enhance the ambiance of bars and lounges, providing both functional and decorative lighting for a stylish and inviting setting.
- Supermarket Display Cabinet: Illuminate merchandise in supermarket display cabinets, attracting attention and improving the overall shopping experience.
- Versatile Applications: From under cabinet edges to inside cabinets, shelves, cupboards, closets, drawers, and other small or enclosed spaces, rigid LED strip lights offer versatile solutions for various lighting needs.
Types of Rigid LED Strip Lights
Types of rigid LED strip lights can be categorized based on their construction into two main types: bare strips and aluminum LED light bars. Bare rigid LED strips are constructed on a metal core printed circuit board (MCPCB), also known as an insulated metal substrate (IMS) board.
The MCPCB typically comprises three layers: a metal substrate, a dielectric layer, and a top copper layer. The metal substrate, made of aluminum, serves as a thermal conductor and provides rigidity. The top layer is a copper foil with a thickness ranging from 1 oz to 10 oz, patterned to meet the interconnect requirements of the LEDs. The dielectric layer, sandwiched between the metal layers, ensures the necessary electrical isolation.
On the other hand, the aluminum LED light bar is a slimmer version of an LED profile. It includes an elongated aluminum channel, an LED strip light, and sometimes an optical lens, offering a sleek and versatile lighting solution.
Difference Between Rigid LED Strip Lights and Flexible LED Light Strips
1. LED rigid light strips are constructed with PCB hard boards, offering advantages in ease of fixing, and it is convenient to process and install. However, the disadvantage is that you cannot bent this freely, making them unsuitable for irregular places. The LED rigid strip bar comes in various specifications, including 30 LEDs, 36 LEDs, 60 LEDs, 72 LEDs, and 120 LEDs, supporting customization for specific applications.
2. Flexible LED light strips are assembled with FPC circuit boards and patch LEDs, resulting in a product with the thickness of a coin that occupies minimal space. The general specifications include 30 LEDs, 60 LEDs, 120 LEDs, 240 LEDs, catering to different user requirements. The flexibility of FPC material allows for cutting or extending the strip without affecting illumination. The soft and bendable nature of FPC material enables it to be moved and stretched in three dimensions without breaking, making it suitable for irregular places and small spaces. This flexibility also makes it ideal for combining various patterns in advertising decoration by bending and winding the strip arbitrarily.
Advantage of Using Rigid LED Strip Lights
- Varied Densities and Arrangement: Rigid LED strip lights offer flexibility in densities and arrangement, allowing for single or multiple rows to suit specific lighting needs.
- Superior Heat Dissipation: A notable advantage over flexible counterparts is the superior heat dissipating capacity of rigid LED light bars. Unlike flexible strips relying on a thin copper layer, rigid strips can effectively handle and remove thermal loads, especially crucial for high-power LED assemblies.
- High-Quality Light Source: Rigid LED strips use high-quality, high-brightness LEDs as a light source, resulting in low power consumption, minimal heat emission, vibrant colors, and an extended lifespan.
- Energy Efficiency: With a DC24V DC input and IC constant current drive, rigid LED strips achieve energy savings exceeding 70%, making them an eco-friendly and cost-effective lighting solution.
- High Light Transmission PC Cover: The use of a high light transmission PC cover ensures a high color rendering index, accurately restoring the true colors of illuminated items.
- Efficient Heat Dissipation: The interior of the light bar is filled with high heat dissipation glue, the power line is waterproofed, ensuring fast and efficient heat dissipation, contributing to the durability of the LED strips.
- Versatile Adaptability: Rigid LED strips have a wide range of applications, suitable for both indoor and outdoor use with corresponding LED light bars.
- Convenient Installation and Construction: Installation and construction are convenient with rigid LED strips. However, it's important to note that the LED light bar cannot be bent freely.
- Environmentally Friendly: Rigid LED strips use no harmful environmental substances, contributing to a long life, energy savings, and overall environmental protection.
What is the intensity and color consistency of Rigid LED Strip Lights?
The intensity and color consistency of rigid LED strip lights are essential factors ensuring uniform and high-quality lighting. These strips consist of multiple LED strings connected in parallel, where each string may include one or more LEDs wired in series. Analog LED strips typically have strings with 3 (12V) or 6 (24V) LEDs, while 5V digital LED strips are designed with single-LED strings. For 12V or 24V LED strips, configurations with multiple LEDs in series per string are common. To maintain consistent light intensities, each LED or LED string may be equipped with a current-limiting resistor or a constant current driver IC.
Compared to flexible light strips, rigid LED strips exhibit less susceptibility to voltage drops due to the absence of a trade-off between the thickness of copper traces and strip flexibility (bending radius). The use of heavier copper traces helps maintain voltage over long runs, ensuring that LEDs farther from the power supply emit the same light output as those wired at the beginning of the run. Achieving color and brightness consistency across the entire strip requires meticulous attention to the binning of light output, color point, and forward voltage of the LEDs, ensuring they fall within tight specified bounds.
Steps for Installing Rigid LED Strip Lights
Installing rigid LED strip lights is a simple process that can bring vibrant illumination to your space. Start by selecting a DC12V or DC24V power supply to convert the AC220V voltage, ensuring it matches the requirements of your LED strips. Secure the hard light bar in place using glass glue for a stable installation.
Connect the copper core with soft wire at the joint, paying attention to distinguish between positive and negative poles to ensure proper alignment. If you're connecting the light bars in series, it's recommended not to exceed 3 meters to avoid excessive brightness caused by overpowering.
