Schemes for connecting RGB LED strip to the network
The simplest and least expensive option is to connect a tape up to 5 meters long. In this case, you can do without an amplifier and an additional 12V power supply. All you need is 1 PSU of suitable power, an RGB controller and the LED material itself. So, the connection diagram of a multicolor ribbon of 5 meters is as follows:
This option is rarely used due to the small length of the conductor. It is recommended to use it if you need to carry out the original lighting on the balcony.
Such a length will be enough to illuminate the perimeter of a small room, for example, a corridor. If the power of the tape is not too large, you can connect two segments in parallel to one power supply and the controller. The main thing is that the power of the latter was higher than two lamps. To your attention, the connection scheme for RGB LED strip up to 10 meters:
With such a length of the tape can not do without an additional RGB amplifier and power supply. It is recommended to choose devices of high enough power to be enough for servicing two segments. A typical RGB LED strip connection scheme of not more than 15 meters is as follows:
If you choose the right power parameter for all the components of the circuit, the backlight will work for a long time and without problems! If the length of the materials is even longer (30, 35 meters, etc.), you need to act in the same spirit - add amplifiers and power supplies. You can clearly see the connection process in the video below:
That's all the most popular schemes for connecting an RGB tape with an amplifier and a controller to a 220 V network! Choose the most suitable option and proceed to the wire connection. There is nothing complicated in the installation work, as you can see from the article that we referred to at the very beginning!
