LED Strip Lighting
LED strip lighting is a type of lighting that uses a flexible circuit board with surface-mounted light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that can be attached to various surfaces to create a variety of lighting effects. LED strip lights come in a range of colors and color temperatures, and are often used for decorative or accent lighting in residential, commercial, and industrial settings.
LED strip lights are highly energy-efficient, long-lasting, and require very little maintenance. They are typically powered by a low-voltage direct current (DC) power source, and can be controlled using a variety of devices such as remote controls, smartphone apps, or wall-mounted controllers. Some LED strip lights also come with features like color-changing options, dimming capabilities, and programmable effects.
IP20 LED Strip Lighting
The 2 in IP20 stands for being able to withstand basic touch and rudimentary dust protection. It won’t survive hard impacts or anything like that, but you can safely touch it with your fingers. The 0 in IP20 stands for no water protection whatsoever. That means these LED strips are ideally suited to be used indoors, but probably won’t last all too long outdoors (even if protected).
IP65 LED Strip Lighting
The IP65 rating officially stands for “Total dust ingress protection | low pressure water jets from any direction”. The 6 stands for good dust and touch protection. Basically the LEDs cannot be reached so they are well protected. The 5 of IP65 stands for decent moisture or water protection. They should even survive a garden hose or something like that.
IP67 LED Strip Lighting
The IP67 rating officially stands for “temporary immersion to at least 1m from bottom and 15cm from top of object”. This means that the product is fully sealed against dust and can actually be fully emerged into water for a small period of time. Like the IP65 rated strip they are great to use outdoors and can be used a bit less protected from the elements.
IP68 LED Strip Lighting
The IP68 rating officially stands for “continuous immersion to a specified depth or pressure”. That means these strips can be immersed into water for longer periods of time making them suitable to use in an aquarium or outdoor pools/ponds for instance. It’s a silicon sleeve but then (pressure) filled with glue or epoxy making it completely solid.
