The light-strip can be cut at intervals of 5cm across the marked vertical line. Each 5cm length has three stunning bright LEDs and a diode mounted on to it. When ordered as a full reel of 5 metres (100 x 5cm units), the light strip will be provided with cable terminations already attached as supplied - this is particularly useful for industrial applications where a fast installation is required.

For shorter lengths, the user will be required to solder suitable wire (recommended Order Code: XR40T - black wire and Order Code: XR44X - red wire) to the strip and connect the other end of the wire to a suitable DC 12 V power supply. The current requirements for various LED strip lengths are shown in the spec table. Please note: For mail-order and internet sales, the LED light-strip can only be supplied in full reels of 5 metre lengths. For smaller lengths, please check your local Maplin store for availability.

Current Requirement
Length of Cut Strip Approximate Current
5 centimetres (1 unit) 20mA
1 metre (20 units) 400mA
2 metres (40 units) 800mA
3 metres (60 units) 1.2A
4 metres (80 units) 1.6A

Unfortunately we would not be able to suggest any modifications to a power supply. These LEDs require a 12 DC power supply.
