N84CZ Spec Sheet PDF >>

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.

I want to use multiple lights around my car do They all need individual power supply or can I connect them all together and then use a power supply and can I wire these into a internal power supply like into a switched fuse using a fuse spilter 

Asked by: Fasy
This is 5cm strips of tape and is not provided with any wires you would need to solder wires onto the contacts. As Technical Support Advisors we cannot offer full advice on electrical installations, this job would be best left down to the professionals, if you are at all unsure we would strongly recommend consulting a qualified auto electrician for help and support or to complete the job for you.

Are these LEDs suitable to connect to a 1Hz pulsing dc supply? I.e. Will they flash or is the power decay too long?

Asked by: Niftystuff
I am sorry but the item in question does not support use in your intended application.
