Can you send a list of small(ish) panels based on your ABSOLUTE SERIES LED 99 CRI Modules?

Can you send a list of small(ish) panels based on your ABSOLUTE SERIES LED 99 CRI Modules? If there are none, if you can recommend a suitable diffuser material, I could build my own. I am looking for an 8x10 or smaller panel for film scanning.

While we do have any specific third-party diffusion covers that we could recommend, you may be able to locate a few options from B&H Photo. 

​Based on my own review of their website a moment ago, they appear to have several diffusion material options available

Can I bend or cut your 1’ strips?

Unfortunately, the material that LED Modules are made of is not designed to be bent or cut. We do sincerely apologize for any impact this may have on your purchase planning. 

As an alternative, you may be interested in the ABSOLUTE SERIES™ LED Flexible Strip, which features identical output and is designed with designated cut points every 1.6” (42 mm). The individual segments of the LED Strip Light can then be connected to power sources by using our connection accessories

I need to prove out a lightbox for a new product. I was thinking about the hard strips, but they are too long. While these flexible ones can be cut, they have less than half the lumens. Maybe an engineer there can suggest a solution?

Here is a bit more about the lightbox/panel:

-They should fit in the 6x8x1 (A4) box/panel, flexible wins

-I am using a Perspex 1TL2 Opal diffuser that cuts half the light to hide the hot spots, so they need to be bright, hard wins

-I need density, and this is where I am stuck. Hard has more LEDs per inch, but the flexible ones are narrower so I can add more strips. Which is better in a 6” wide box (assuming I make it 12” long to fit the hard strips)?

I am also looking at Nichia OptiSolis which is 98CRI and 560lumnes per ft in a flexible format. Can you tell me how your CRI was measured (which device)?

While the LED Modules do have more densely-packed LEDs on the PCB than the LED Flexible Strip, they are also twice the width. As the 20mm LED Module outputs 800 lumens per 1-meter unit, two 1-meter lengths of the 10mm LED Flexible Strip would be able to provide 2500 lumens in roughly the same dimensions (at 1250 lumens per meter). 

​As such, we would likely recommend utilizing the ABSOLUTE SERIES™ LED Flexible Strip due to the denser lumen output compared to the LED Modules. ​This choice also has the benefit of shorter segments and installation flexibility. 

Based on my review of the Nichia OptiSolis, there appears to be a tradeoff where our product can provide a higher CRI of 99, but lower lumens per foot. If you would like to compare our products, please feel free to take advantage of our 30-day return policy. So long as the LED flexible strips have not been cut or altered, we would be happy to accept them as a return. 

Do you have a picture of the power connection on the strip?

The plan would be to cut these in 4.8” strips and lay them 10 wise next to each other. How would you power that? Daisy chain?

How do you recommend cooling them if encased in a box?

Your spec sheet states a minimum CRI Ra of 95 and CRI R9 of 90. How do I avoid this minimum?

While we do not have a photograph of the reel ends, it might be helpful to know that they utilize barrel jack adapters, which are compatible with the Barrel Jack Plug Adapter or FilmGrade™ DC Power Supply for LED Strip

These strips can be installed in series or parallel, so long as the maximum output of the power supplies is not reached. As a further consideration, these LED strip lights have a maximum combined length of 16.4 ft (5 meters). If a series of connected segments exceeds that length, increasing voltage drop and diminished output will be encountered. 

We also have several LayoutMap diagrams on our website which illustrate some possible installation types and feature links to the recommended connector accessories. We have placed a few below, in the hopes that they prove to be helpful.

When these products are operating, we have measured a typical temperature rise of 54°F (30°C) over ambient temperatures. So long as there is a moderate amount of airflow in your installation, the LED Strip Lights should be able to cool sufficiently for ongoing operation, though dimming the output will also help to reduce the operating temperature. 

The lower CRI Ra and R9 numbers are the minimum that has been found in our internal testing. I can confirm that the majority of the products produced by our facilities provide higher tested numbers than the minimum touted on the product pages.
