If you are buying LED Tape or low voltage LED lighting you will also need one of your power supplies. Our power supplies are designed to take your mains voltage supply and convert it to 12D DC (or 24V DC). Remember, using low voltage lighting on a mains voltage supply will damage the lights.
Our power adapters are a plug-and-play solution and come with a 3-pin plug. They are designed to work from a normal mains outlet. These are commonly used in conjunction with our flexible LED Tape and offer a quick and simple solution for installation
Our LED Drivers are designed to work direct from your mains supply and need to be hardwired. These are recommended for more permanent installation and can be used in conjunction with our LED Tape or low voltage LED Lighting including G4s and MR16 LED Spotlights.
Please note: If you are swapping to low voltage LED lighting you will need to upgrade your existing transformers to LED Drivers. We cannot guarantee compatibility with your existing transformers.
What power supply do I need?
An important consideration when installing low voltage lighting is the load on the power supply. This determines the maximum combined wattage that can be added to the power supply. Exceeding the maximum load can damaged the power supply.
Calculating the load on the circuit is relatively straightforward. All you need to do is take the wattage of the bulb and multiply it by the number of bulbs on the circuit. In the case of LED Tape this will mean taking the number of metres and multiplying by the wattage per metre.
Once you know how many watts you are installing on the circuit you can decide which power supply you need. As long as you're not exceeding the maximum load you should be OK, but we always recommend leaving a 10% margin just to be safe.
