Selecting the Correct LED Strip Voltagelldesigns
LED strips come in different voltages, just like for a car. In a car, the battery is a 12V DC and therefore all other DC equipment such as the car radio also runs off 12V. Most trucks run a 24V DC battery, so ther light systems and other systems must be able to run off 24V.
LED strips commonly come in a 12V DC design. However, once we reach 5 metres in length, the strips will start losing brightness. This is called voltage drop. To counter this we can use 24V DC LED strip. We can now run up to 10 metres without any voltage drops if we can supply one end.
