Are the FilmGrade LED Strips able to be cut into shorter sections?
Are the FilmGrade LED strips able to be cut into shorter sections? And if so, what accessories would I need to make each section work independently? Would each segment need its power source, or could I link them, if so, what would I need to purchase to achieve that? Lastly, is there a way I could synchronize or program multiple strips together?
Our FilmGrade LED strip lights can indeed be cut into shorter sections, in 1 or 2-inch intervals (depending on whether you select the 12-volt or 24-volt option). They can be reconnected using our solderless connectors, or ordinary low-voltage wire and solder.
Below is a connectivity diagram showing how multiple sections can be joined together to a single power source:
If you do need the sections controlled independently (e.g. one section is off while the other is on), you will require separate power supplies for each section.
