White LED modules the most versatile colour for signage
White LED modules are by far the most popular of all the LED colours we stock. With white LED modules you have a perfect replacement for fluorescent tubes and a light source which works well across the widest range of sign and display products.
You can choose from bright white and cool white LED modules.
Not all white light installations require the same colour tone and intensity. To aid you in the delivery of the correct light colour for your project we offer two white colours.
What are the specifications for these white LED modules?
These white LED modules are our standard exterior grade product consisting of linked 3 diode module blocks resin sealed to an IP68 rating. These white LED modules are ideal for halo and face illumination tasks.
Being sealed to IP 68 means that these white LED modules offer you the prospect maintenance-free installations. If you chose to use interior rated LED modules you must ensure that the modules are carefully sealed into your sign enclosure. This process normally involves the use of clear Perspex covers. Without careful sealing, water will penetrate into your enclosure shorting out your unsealed LED modules.
By using our white waterproof LED modules you can in effect run these lights in their naked state without seals or covers. This waterproof rating gives you the confidence to place LED’s in areas where they will get exposed to water. It also means you save time and money by eliminating the need for covers and seals.
Large white LED modules
These are the three diode resin sealed blocks. Large white LED modules are sold in trays of 30 blocks. Each individual block is linked in series with factory fitted cabling. Only the start and end of the 30 block tray have loose positive and negative cable connections.
If you need to rearrange the 30 block tray arrangement you simply trim block runs to suit your enclosure. It’s all quite straight forward and we are only working on 12v DC, so you don’t have to worry about dangerous shocks.
Mini white LED modules
As well as the large white LED modules we also supply a smaller mini version. The mini white LED’s are linked in the same 30 block arrangement but feature only two diodes per block. The casing of these mini white LED’s is slightly different in that the whole LED block is encased in a clear, soft-touch plastic.
You can cut and modify the 30 block layout to suit whatever enclosure you are working within. These mini white LED’s allow you to tackle smaller spaces and get lighting where you need it.
Matched waterproof LED transformers
Some LED suppliers give you an internally rated set of modules and an internally rated power supply. Other suppliers will supply you with the waterproof modules but still require you to use an internally rated power supply.
If you have an internally rated power supply in your exterior LED system you either need to find a waterproof enclosure large enough for the power supply to sit in or, waste time mounting the power supply internally and then run cables back to it.
We are able to supply you with a completely waterproof set of modules and power supply. This allows you to mount your power supply in the most convenient location.
Connections to 12v and 240v sides of the power supply are made inside a standard waterproof enclosure.
How to wire your LED installation
Connections between LED blocks should be made by silver soldering. Connector blocks are not waterproof and should not be used.
To regain the waterproof nature of your LED installation it is vital that you cover all soldered connections with heat sheathing and ensure that the sheathing is tightly gripped to all solder joints.
Connection to the transformer the recommended wiring circuit design is parallel, not series. You want to run a feed cable from each letter or enclosure fitted with LED modules. These feeds terminate together onto the 12v side of the power supply. Running a parallel circuit alleviates the build-up of resistance in the circuit preventing dimming.
A full wiring service is available
If you want to buy sign and display products complete with LED lighting we can supply you with a complete “out of the box” solution eliminating the need for you to carry out any wiring.
Tools and accessories are available for DIY LED installation.
Other white LED’s are available
White LED’s are available in flexible, tape, rope, gel, strip, wall washer, spot, cabinet and edge-lit product ranges.
