Understanding 3528 LED Strip Lights
When it comes to lighting your homes, offices, industrial spaces, and more, nothing is better than flexible LED light strips. They are versatile, easy to install, light on the pocket, and durable. 3528 LED light strips are one of the more popular flexible LED light strips in the market. This is because they are small enough in size to be installed anywhere without disrupting the aesthetic of the space yet pack quite a punch when it comes to illuminating your space.
So what does 3528 really mean? As with all LED names, 3528 simply denotes the size of the LED chip mounted on the strip, which in this case is 35mm × 28mm. Elstar 3528 LED light strips are SMD light strips, this means the LEDs are mounted on the surface of the strip. This makes our LED light strips more efficient and effective.
3528 LED Strip Light Specifications
3528 SMD LED light strips are a popular choice among LED users because of their versatility and ease of use. If you have a special lighting project in mind Elstar can help customize the LED strips on a SMD level (read on to find out more). At the same time, we house a variety of 3528 SMD LED light strips that are sure to capture your attention.
Here are three kinds of 3528 LED light strips Elstar offers along with their specifications and functions.
3528 LED Strip
This is the most basic version of the 3528 LED strip family. The strip features high-quality LEDs mounted on a strong yet flexible strip. Our 3528 LED Strips offer the following attributes:
Fully Dimmable: Elstar 3528 LED light strips can be dimmed down to minimum capacity or brightened up to 720 lumens of light per meter. You can dim the light strip using one of our Elstar LED Strip Controllers.
Sturdy Construction: Our 3528 SMD LED light strips feature double-layer pure copper PCB. This helps improve the strip’s current conductivity and prevents voltage drop.
Perfect Luminosity: Elstar 3528 LED strip lights feature a 120-degree beam angle, which means the light is distributed evenly in your space.
Easy Installation: 3528 LED Light strips have 3M adhesives at the back that make them easy to stick to any flat surface. If you’re looking to install the LED ribbon lights on an uneven surface you can check out our aluminum profile for led strip lighting.
Guaranteed Performance: All Elstar 3528 LED ribbon lights come with a 2 to 5 years warranty so you can rest assured of their quality and performance.
3528 CCT Adjustable Strips
If you’re looking for a brighter LED strip that also gives you control over the color temperature than Elstar 3528 CCT Adjustable Strips are the right choice for you. The 3528 CCT Adjustable LED strips have the following attributes:
Adjustable CCT: CCT defines the color temperature of LED light strips. Elstar 3528 CCT Adjustable Strips allow you to change the temperature of white light displayed by the strip. This comes in really handy when you want to change the overall mood of your space without having to install different strips.
Multiple Channels: You can change the color temperature of our 3528 CCT Adjustable Strips from cool white to warm white. The strips come with 3 channels that allow you to easily switch between different color temperatures.
More Luminosity: Our 3528 CCT Adjustable Strips feature 120 LEDs per meter of strip. The LEDs produce more light than standard 3528 LED strips. This makes 3528 CCT Adjustable Strip a brighter lighting option.
High Performance: Elstat 3528 CCT Adjustable LED Strips come with a warranty of 3 years proving their high performance and quality.
Built-in 2-in-1 3528 CCT Adjustable Strip
Our Built-in 2-in-1 3528 CCT Adjustable Strip combines the best of both worlds. It gives you the freedom to choose your desired color temperature and also control the dimmability The Built-in 2-in-1 3528 CCT Adjustable Strip has the following attributes:
Greater Control: Built-in 2-in-1 3528 CCT Adjustable Strip gives you greater control over color temperature. You can choose any color temperature between 2700K to 6500K.
High Brightness: Our Built-in 2-in-1 3528 CCT Adjustable Strip features 120 LEDs per meter of strip making it one of our brighter LED light strips. A single strip create enough luminosity to light a small space.
High-Quality: The Built-in 2-in-1 3528 CCT Adjustable Strip comes with a warranty of 2 to 5 years mirroring our promise of high-quality, high-performance products.
Types of 3528 LED Strip Lights at Elstar
Our basic model of 3528 LED light strip is available in a number of different configurations. We understand how varying lighting needs can be and so our LED light products follow suite. Here the types of 3528 LED strip lights Elstar offers:
3528 SMD 60 LEDs/m
This LED strip features 60 LEDs mounted on one meter of the strip. With a PCB width of 8mm and a voltage requirement of 12V DC, this 3528 SMD LED light strip consumes 4.8 watts of energy per meter. This is a single-row LED so it doesn’t take much space and is perfect for lighting smaller spaces and projects. The LED light strip is available in red, blue, green, yellow, white, and warm white colors.
3528 SMD 120 LEDs/m
If you want your LEDs to have a greater punch, go with this strip. It features 120 LEDs per meter of strip but the width of the PCB remains 8mm. This means the strip is brighter but not wider, making it extremely versatile. This is the most common 3528 SMD LED strip found in the market. It consumes 9.6 watts of energy per meter and is available in red, blue, green, yellow, white, and warm white colors.
3528 SMD 240 LEDs/m Single Row
This 3528 SMD LED is quiet popular in industrial and commercial uses. That is because at 240 LEDs per meter of strip, the LED strip is brighter and more luminous. All the LEDs are mounted in a single row with a PCB width of 10mm. The strip consumes 19.2 watts of energy per meter of strip making it an efficient way to light larger spaces. You can buy 3528 SMD 240 LEDs/m Single Row in red, blue, green, yellow, white, and warm white colors.
3528 SMD 240 LEDs/m Double Row
LED lights used in factories, operation theatres, work benches, and more require greater luminosity than normal LED light strips. This why Elstar has designed 3528 SMD 240 LEDs/m Double Row light strip. This LED strip packs double the punch of 3528 SMD 240 LEDs/m Single Row but is still only 5mm wider. With a PCB width of 15mm and a power consumption of 19.2 watts/meter, this LED light strip is brighter yet efficient. You can buy the LED ribbon light in red, blue, green, yellow, white, and warm white colors.
SMD LED 3528 Light Strip Applications
SMD LED 3528 light strip is one of the most versatile LED strips in the market. You can use lower density 3528 strips for feature lighting like plinth and coving lights in homes, bars, restaurants, hotels, and other locations. They can also be used for accent lighting, under-cabinet lighting, staircase lighting, feature lighting, and more.
Higher density 3528 strips can be used in places where you require a large amount of ambient light like offices, schools, factories, and more. Brighter SMD LED 3528 light strips can be used in operation theatres, jewelry making factories, workbenches, inspection labs, and more. They are great for task lighting, signage, outdoor lighting, event lighting, and more.
What is the difference between SMD LED 3528 with 5050 Strip?
SMD LED 3528 light strips and 5050 light strips are the most common LED lights found in the market. They are also the most versatile, that is the reason why you will find them butting heads more often than not. The two LED strips are alike in that they can be used for similar purposes and installing or mounting them requires the same process. But that’s where the similarity ends.
The basic difference between 3528 LED light strip and 5050 LED light strip is that the latter is actually a tri-chip. This means SMD LED 5050 actually features three chips installed in a single LED. This opens up a world of RGB configurations that 3528 doesn’t offer.
