10 $23.00

Product Description

This LED module is a great entry-level backlight module for channel letters, halo lighting and sign lighting. A total of four 5050 SMD chips provide ample lighting with a max power requirement of 1.5W per module. Each string can be cut anywhere on the lead wires between each module. Each module has adhesive backing for easy installation.

Module

In addition to being able to be used for sign lighting these modules are great for cove and accent lighting and for use as under-cabinet general illumination.

A constant voltage 12VDC power source is needed to power this product.

The plastic ABS shell and clear epoxy coating provides limited water-resistance to moisture. Not submersible or UV proof.

Packaging

Comes in a plastic bag as one string of 10 modules that can be cut anywhere on the lead wires between each module.

Introduction

This manual describes how to connect and control the 3618 LED module using Phidgets I/O boards and relays.

I/O Boards:

Relays:

Connecting the LED Module

Connecting to the REL1100 or REL1101

3618 0 Connecting VINT.jpg

  1. Connect the ground (-) wire from your power supply to one of the ground terminals on the Phidget.
  2. Connect the black anode wire from the LED module to the power supply live wire (+).
  3. Connect the red, blue, and green cathode wires from the RGB module to the numbered terminals on the Phidget.

Connecting to the 1012 - PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/16/16

3618 0 Connecting 1012.jpg

  1. Connect the ground (-) wire from your power supply to the ground terminal (G) on the 1012.
  2. Connect the black anode wire from the LED module to the power supply live wire (+).
  3. Connect the red, blue, and green cathode wires from the RGB module to digital output terminals.

Note: Be aware that the LEDs can get damaged if the proper polarity is not respected: Anode (+), Cathode (-).

Connecting to the 1014 - PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/0/4

3618 0 Connecting 1014.jpg

  1. Connect the black anode wire from the LED module to the power supply live wire (+).
  2. Connect the ground (-) wire from your power supply to a Common terminal on the 1014.
  3. Connect the Red, Green and Blue cathode wires from the LED module to the NO (Normally Open) terminals on the 1014.
  4. Insert jumpers between the common terminals.

If you connect the power supply live wire to the NC (Normally Closed) terminal, the LED strip will be ON when the switch is off.

Note: Be aware that the LEDs can get damaged if the proper polarity is not respected: Anode (+), Cathode (-).

Connecting to the 1017 - PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/0/8

3618 0 Connecting 1017.jpg

  1. Connect the black anode wire from the LED module to the power supply live wire (+).
  2. Connect the ground (-) wire from your power supply to a Common terminal on the 1017.
  3. Connect the Red, Green and Blue cathode wires from the LED module to the NO (Normally Open) terminals on the 1017.
  4. Insert jumpers between the common terminals.If you connect the power supply live wire to the NC (Normally Closed) terminal, the LED strip will be ON when the switch is off.

Note: Be aware that the LEDs can get damaged if the proper polarity is not respected: Anode (+), Cathode (-).
