Do the T5 LED Linear Light Fixtures include bulbs and magnetic mounts?
I just placed a large order and then noticed the NorthLux™ 95 CRI T5 LED Linear Light Fixture 4026.2F.50 I had a few questions.
Does the fixture include the bulb?
We can confirm that the linear light fixture contains the bulb pre-installed.
For the magnetic mounts, I see they have screws but do these need to be screwed into something to hold the magnets to hold the bulb?
The magnetic clips are designed to easily attach to the underside of the light fixture, and should not require any screws or additional mounting accessories. These clips are included within the product packaging.
LED Linear Lighting for Bright Reading
I am 99 and my wife is 89. Our eyesight is not like it was. I find that task lighting is not good. We have a high ceiling den with a soft and decorative light string. Thinking linear LED in the soffit to project on the tray ceiling would provide good defused bright reading.
If you could determine what color temperature you were interested in for your installation, we would be more than happy to provide a few product recommendations.
If a guide for color temperatures proves to be useful, we have provided a link to a blog post from our website below.

For more information on getting started with the LED Strip Lights products, I have attached a second blog post from our website below.

Do you have an Emission Spectra Data of LEDs
Do you have data on the wavelengths your LEDs emit? I am interested in something that emits a little bit of UV as well as visible light, ideally with varying intensity.
We do provide the spectral data on our LEDs which can be found on the Photometrics page, found below:
We unfortunately do not have any products that simultaneously emit UV and visible light.
For such applications, we would recommend using our UV LED products in conjunction with our standard white LED products.
My application is in research and I am trying to get diffused, full-spectrum lighting in a small chamber (a paint bucket) to study varying fluorescence in biological samples. This also has to work in conditions with a lot of water, so I need to figure out a mobile power supply and computer controls if possible.
I will probably need around 4 strips in total. Is it possible to do a call where we can discuss setting up a power supply and perhaps which strips work best for this application? The most important part is consistent light output and ideally some control over intensity.
Our LED strip lights should be a great option for your needs. We do offer several options, including our ABSOLUTES SERIES in calibrated 5000K/6500K color options as well as our realUV LED strip lights which can provide the 365 / 395 nm wavelengths for the fluorescence effects you are looking for.
You also mentioned that you are after the ability to vary the intensity, and this is also something that can be accomplished via our flicker-free LED dimmer:https://store.waveformlighting.com/products/filmgrade-flicker-free-dimmer-for-led-strip
Below are some installation diagrams that you might find useful:
Over what wavelength range does the light output for the 365nm LED?
I'm a little confused by the spectrum test report for the 365nm LEDs. Over what wavelength range does the light output?
Our 365 nm UV LEDs have a peak wavelength value of 365 nm. The FWHM is approximately +/-10 nm, which indicates that there is a significant amount of UV output between 355 and 375 nm.The "TYPICAL EMISSION SPECTRUM" charts are shown on our product specifications page below.
Do you have a bigger vision of the typical emission spectrum?
Also, I have seen FWHM listed sometimes as a number, rather than as a ±. For example, we have a light filter with an FWHM of 16nm. Is that equivalent to ±8nm?
Unfortunately, the LED strip lights are flexible only in an up/down direction and cannot be curved to create turns to the left or right as shown in your diagram. The closest alternative would be to use our solderless connectors to create U-turns at the end of each LED strip section.
Using the solderless connectors, can we place the side of the strip by side? Or is there a thermal limitation for how closely the strips can be placed?
While the LED strips do warm up a bit during operation, their proximity to each other should not have any significant effect on their longevity or reliability.
