INTRODUCTION
• This installation guide is for flexible, IP33 constant voltage self-adhesive LED strips produced by Integral LED.
• Depending on your installation, you can purchase optional or additional accessories such as mounting clips and connectors
A) CHOOSING A 12V LED DRIVER
• T his LED strip operates with a 12V DC constant-voltage power supply known as a driver. Drivers are sold separately and are available in varying wattage
outputs.
• T he specification of the driver required will depend on the total power requirement of the connected strip(s). The power output of the driver (wattage
rating) must be at least 10% higher than the total required wattage of the strip(s) being powered. For example, if you are installing 5 LED strips of 1M each and the power requirement of each 1M strip is 3W/metre – the total power requirement is 15W. The power rating of the driver should be a least 10% above 15W i.e. A minimum of 17W
B) PRE-INSTALLATION GUIDE
LED strips make a great addition to any domestic or commercial environment. They can change the mood and look of a space instantly and are very energy
efficient. The possibilities are endless so the requirement for each lighting project will be different.
It is worth taking some time to plan your project for the desired effect before removing the backing tape on the LED strip. The specification, length, mounting
position and distance from an object determines the appearance of a lit LED strip. You will also need to consider the placement and concealment, of the 12V
LED driver and wires, and the power switch to turn the LED strip ON and OFF.
We recommend that you test the strip by temporarily holding the LED strip in place by using a suitable tape, such as masking tape. Safely connect the power
supply - you can then carefully move the strip to try different angles and positions to gain the desired illumination effect and position. Check for light spots,
reflections and shadows.
Please consider the surface you are applying the LED strip to; the surface should be stable, clean and smooth. On removal of a fixed LED strip - damage to
paint, wallpaper or other substrates may occur. Take care in measuring the length required before cutting the strip, take into account the space required for the
connector. You may also consider using a spirit level, plumb line or other guide if required.

2) VOLTAGE DROP
C) 1 (fig 3)
If the total length of LED strips powered by a single LED driver is too long, you may find that the LEDs
furthest away from the driver will be unlit or dimmed. To avoid this you will need to use additional
drivers. For instance if you are powering 2 X 5M strips from one driver – you will need to split the run
into separate 5M runs each powered by its own driver.

A.
CAUTION – Twisting, pressing on LEDs, over-bending the strip, cutting at non-cut points,
incorrectly powering the strip or exposing a standard strip (IP33) to water, particles or direct sunlight
will invalidate the warranty (your statutory rights remain unaffected).
1. T o ensure a successful installation - please read the precautions and pre-installation
recommendations above.
2. The mounting surface must be clean, dry and free from dust or grease.
3. Release the LED strip from the package and unreel.
4. Measure and cut the LED strip to the required length (only cut at the cut marks with power OFF).
5. Remove the 3M self-adhesive backing tape from the strip gradually during installation. Do not remove it all at once to avoid the strip becoming entangled and sticking to itself (figs 8 and 9).
6. Stick the LED strip to the mounting surface by pressing on the strip in between components
only. Do NOT press on the LEDs or other components on the strip.
7. You can use optional mounting clips (purchased separetely) to secure the strip at intervals (fig 10). The mounting clips are supplied without screws and it is the responsibility of the
installer to select the correct type of screw depending on mounting substrate.
8. Once the strip is affixed, it is then ready to be wired. Please see section C1.

Symptoms
Possible Causes
Solutions
1. No power to the driver.
Please check to see if there is power
being delivered to the drivers power
supply via the connection to AC power.
2. The power supply driver
connection is wired incorrectly.
Check the polarity for 12V connections,
positive (+) to positive and negative (–)
to negative. See power supply driver
wiring diagram (Section C1).
3. There is no output voltage from
the power supply driver.
Check the power supply driver; it may
need to be replaced.
4. The strip wires are not connected
properly to the strip or to the driver.
Check the connectors and polarity.
Make sure strip is cut correctly and
strip terminals are making a connection
within the connector.
5. Overvoltage may have damaged
the LEDs.
The working voltage should be within 5%
of the rated voltage (12V). If overvoltage
has damaged the product then this is not
covered by the warranty.
1. LEDs on the strip are powered in
series. If some LEDs in the centre
of the strip do not light and LEDs
towards the end of the strip do light
then the LEDs have failed.
Strip may need to be replaced.
2. If the LEDs in the beginning of
the strip work but none are working
after the first non-working LED
then there is a connection issue.
This could be caused by a poor
connection or if the connector is
not fitted to the strip correctly.
This could also be a result of the
strip being bent more than the
recommended bending diameter.
Please check the strip connection from
the section of the strip that is not lit.
Check soldering connections. Check
connector joins. Strip may need to be
replaced.
1. The power load (total Wattage of
all strips connected) exceeds the
rated Wattage of the power supply
driver (total output).
The power supply needed will depend on
the total length of strips in use. The power
supply driver will need to have an output
that is at least 10% more than the total
wattage needed to power the strip. See
section A.
2. The length of wire between
the strip and power supply or the
length of the wire in between each
strip is too long.
1. Use shorter strip supply wires.
2. Use thicker supply wires.
3. Make sure that the input voltage of each
LED strip is within 90% of the rated voltage.
3. Too many LED strips are
connected to the power supply
driver.
2. Make sure that the total wattage of
all LED strips is within 90% of the total
output of the power supply driver. If the
total wattage of all strips exceeds the
driver output then please use a higher
wattage driver.
