Power Supply Needed for LED Strip Light Installation
I will be installing 2 16ft reels of the Centric Daylight 4000K LED strips for my business. I am curious as to how many power supplies I will need. Will a single 24V power supply power 32.8 ft of these two LED reels? I also will be installing the RED LED 16.4 ft reel, which I notice has a 12V requirement. Would a single 12V power supply for the RED plus a single 24V volt power supply do the trick? Or might I need 3 power supplies?
Though the 24V LED Strip Light products have a maximum combined length of 32.8 ft, at 5.5 watts of power draw per foot, two 16.4 ft reels would require 180.4 W power output, which is greater than the 120 W power output of our power supply.
As such, we would recommend utilizing a dedicated power supply for each reel of the 24V CENTRIC DAYLIGHT™ LED Strip Light product.
However, there may be third-party power supplies available elsewhere which might be capable of powering two full 16.4 ft reels of product.
