How far can I install LED tape from its LED power supply?
This depends on the voltage drop over the length of your power cable. In our testing, we’ve found that you can avoid the adverse effects of voltage drop on your light output by following these guidelines:
|for 0.75 mm cable
||LED power driver up to 5 m away
|for 1 mm cable
||LED power driver up to 10 m away
|for 1.5 mm cable
||LED power driver up to 15 m away
|for 2.5 mm cable
||LED power driver up to 20 m away
We have based these figures on 24-volt LED power supplies. If you’re installing a 12V LED power supply, please give us a call.
Can I connect multiple LED strips to the same LED power supply?
Yes, a single LED power supply can be connected to more than one length of LED tape. As long as the total wattage of your LED strip lights doesn’t exceed that of the LED transformer, you can wire as many separate strips as you wish.
For more info about how to wire up your LED transformer to multiple LED strips, including helpful wiring diagrams, see our LED connections support page.
Do you supply waterproof LED power supplies?
At InStyle, our range of LED power supplies includes both LED drivers for interior use and waterproof LED drivers. Waterproof power supplies are IP67 rated, ideal for use in locations where resistance to water is required.
Even though your IP67 LED transformer is fully sealed for full water resistance, you should not install it in any location that is permanently submerged under water.
