Flexible LED Strip White (5m)

ID: 3616_0

Discontinued

The 3616 is a 5 meter long, 8 mm wide, flexible LED strip with adhesive backing which can be cut in multiples of 3-LED sections. The strip contains 300 white LEDs with a light beam of 120°.

The strip requires between 9 to 12 Volts DC and consumes 1.45A when running at 12V and 338mA when running at 9V.

Caution: Running the strip at more than 12V can damage the LEDs.

Packaging


Comes in an Antistatic pouch containing one 5 meter LED strip.

Introduction

This manual describes how to connect and control the 3616 LED strip using Phidgets I/O boards and relays.

I/O Boards:

Relays:

Connecting the LED Strip

Connecting to the REL1100 or REL1101

  1. Connect the ground (-) wire from your power supply to one of the ground terminals on the Phidget.
  2. Connect the anode (+) wire from the LED strip to the power supply live wire (+).
  3. Connect the cathode (-) wire from the LED strip to one of the numbered terminals on the Phidget.

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


Connecting to the 1012 - PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/16/16

  1. Connect the ground (-) wire from your power supply to the ground terminal (G) on the 1012.
  2. Connect the white anode wire from the LED strip to the power supply live wire (+).
  3. Connect the black cathode wire from the LED strip to the digital output terminal.

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

  1. Connect the live (+) wire from your power supply to the NO (Normally Open) connector on the 1017.
  2. Connect the black cathode wire from the LED strip to the power supply ground wire (-).
  3. Connect the white anode wire from the LED strip to the common connector on the 1017.

If you connect the power supply live wire to 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

LED Functional 1017.jpg

  1. Connect the live (+) wire from your power supply to the NO (Normally Open) connector on the 1017.
  2. Connect the black cathode wire from the LED strip to the power supply ground wire (-).
  3. Connect the white anode wire from the LED strip to the common connector on the 1017.

If you connect the power supply live wire to 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 3051 - Dual Relay Board

LED Functional 3051.jpg

  1. Connect the live (+) wire from your power supply to the NO (Normally Open) connector on the 3051.
  2. Connect the black cathode wire from the LED strip to the power supply ground wire (-).
  3. Connect the white anode wire from the LED strip to the common connector on the 3051.
  4. Connect one of the two control terminals on the 3051 to a Digital Output on the 1018.
  5. Connect the 3051 to the 1018 using the sensor cable.

If you connect the white anode wire to 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 3052, 3053 - SSR Relay Boards

LED Functional 3052.jpg

  1. Connect the live (+) wire from your power supply to one of the output terminals on the SSR Board.
  2. Connect the black cathode wire from the LED strip to the power supply ground wire (-).
  3. Connect the white anode wire from the LED strip to the other output terminal on the SSR board.
  4. Attach the SSR Board to your PhidgetInterfaceKit by connecting the positive (red) wire to a digital output and the ground (black) wire to a ground terminal on the InterfaceKit.

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