If you have long lengths of single colour or RGB colour changing LED strip light then there’s only one choice for powering them – and that’s our Mean Well HLG-240H 240V-12V Transformer.
With a maximum load of 192W, it can comfortably power substantial lengths of 12V LED tape.
It features a live and neutral that can be wired to a mains 240V supply, plus a 12V pair (red and black) to connect to the strip lights themselves. For this RGB colour changing tape however, this would connect to the controller. It’s a versatile product as it is compatible with both types of LED tape.
With free shipping available on this LED transformer, there’s never been a better time to start building your strip light setup.
One of the things that this Mean Well 240V-12V LED transformer comes with out of the box is IP67 protection. But what does this mean?
IP ratings are comprised of 2 parts – these are simply the 2 digits of the IP number, and each one corresponds to something different.
The first digit provides a measure of the level of protection against foreign bodies, with the second digit doing the same but for moisture.
With that in mind, let’s apply this to our transformer. It has an IP rating of 67. The 6 means it is completely dust proof, and the 7 means it is submergible in 1m of water for up to 30 minutes.
With this, you can use the transformer outside, as it can stand up to the worst that nature can throw at it.
Finishing The Setup
Without a set of strip lights to use, this LED transformer is merely an overpriced paperweight. It works with any of our 12V single colour tape or our 12V RGB colour strips, but if you’re not sure which one to go for, we’ve got some recommendations.
If you’re looking for single colour use, a great option would be our 14.4W LED Strip Light. At 14.4W/m, you could have up to 15m of this tape using our transformer. It will shine with a brightness of 1020 lumens too, giving you plenty of horsepower to play with.
A range of colour are available, along with a choice of IP65 or IP68 nano ratings, giving you freedom to use it anywhere you want and for whatever purpose.
We have a similar RGB strip light that also uses 14.4W/m. Similarly too, it will also shine with a max brightness of 1020 lumens, however, the RGB LEDs allow it to give off multiple colours – adding an extra dimension to your lighting.
Please bear in mind that once you buy your strip lights and they have been cut to your desired length, you will not be able to return them.
It is worth knowing too that this Mean Well HLG-240H 240V-12V Transformer is a special order item, and isn’t kept in stock. As a result, there is an additional 15% restocking fee should you need to return it. Please make sure your order is correct before confirming purchase.
Mean Well also cover you with their 2 year manufacturer warranty, giving your peace of mind going forward.
