For this outdoor lighting project our customer wanted to change the existing lighting he had on top of the historic water tower in Dayton, NV. The lengths of the tree shaped metal framing that already existed were fairly long and would have taken a lot more wiring and controls for our brightest RGB strip lights. So they opted for our outdoor rated Ribbon Star Extreme RGB Strip, which can be connected up to 100ft in series and also only consumes 1.4 watts per foot of lighting. The linear lighting strips were easy to customize and then their were only a few more steps to connect the leads to our RGB Color Controller, which then was powered from the 240W 24VDC Power Transformer. With the new setup the owner can now choose from 16 million color tones and will surely make this nighttime attraction a known site in the small town of Dayton, NV.
Ribbon Star Extreme RGB Strip Lights - 28 LEDs per Meter - UL 24VDC - IP20 & IP65
SKU: RL-SC-RSX-RGB View Product Page
Our high end UL Listed Ribbon Star Extreme RGB is a fully outdoor rated, durable, and color changing LED Strip Light that can be connected in series up to 100ft (30m). Using 2 positive wires (V+) and 3 negative wires (RGB) this strip can achieve longer serial connections than a standard RGB strip light. Be sure to share your positive wires to your RGB control source for the entire strip to work in unison. With an encapsulated commercial grade waterproof silicon coating our Ribbon Star Extreme RGB is IP67 outdoor rated, making it fully waterproof (non-submersible), dust and UV proof. Ribbon Star Extreme RGB LED Strip Light provides a perfect light source for any outdoor lighting projects. The Strip Light can be cut every 9.5 inches and has multiple connection options that can be waterproofed to suite your projects needs. 7 SMD LEDs per 9.5 inches with a total of 84 LEDs per 3m. At 1.7W per foot, a 3m roll would require at least a 17W, 24VDC power supply. At the maximum series length of 100ft (30m) this ribbon would require at least a 170W 24VDC Constant Voltage power supply. The PC Board of the strip is larger and thicker than most, meaning it is not designed to be bent, folded, or twisted on a horizontal axis or bent more than a 2" radius. This LED strip light is perfect for any outdoor or architectural lighting project. Use with landscape features, decks, trailers, boats, RV's, business trim, pathway lighting, pools, or any other situation where a weather proof LED Strip Light is needed. Comes with 10 mounting clips for a permanent mounting solution. Requires a 24VDC Constant Voltage power source. UL Listed for class2 luminaries and fixtures, RoHS and CE approved.
