Connections and installation

Measure your intended installation space and round down to the nearest whole foot to determine the number of RigidStrips you need. Only 8 RigidStrips can be connected in a single leg, but the number of legs you have is limited only by the wattage of your power supply.

Armacost RigidStrip Linkable LED Light User Guide  & troubleshooting 6

Use only with low-voltage DC constant voltage power supplies. Never connect RigidStrip linkable lights directly to 120-volt household power.
Use the chart below to determine wattage consumption for each leg.
Add this fi gure for all lighting legs to determine total system wattage.Armacost RigidStrip Linkable LED Light User Guide  & troubleshooting 7

Do not exceed 8 RigidStrips in one leg.
Before installation of your RigidStrip Linkable LED Light, consider your placement options. See sidebar.
Plan out your RigidStrip installation by marking a straight line on your mounting surface. Mark at 6-inch intervals for the surface mount clips.
Install the clips using the double-sided adhesive or the included screws.

Placement options for RigidStrip Linkable Lights

For maximum light output, mount the light towards the front of the cabinet with LEDs facing down. To focus light on the work surface and also light your backsplash, position the RigidStrip an inch or two back from the front of the cabinet. The refi ned fi texture appearance makes RigidStrips perfect for fl bottomed shelves or cabinets.

If your mounting surface has a front lip, consider installing the RigidStrip Light on the inside back of the lip with the LEDs facing towards your backsplash. This method provides a different illumination effect.Armacost RigidStrip Linkable LED Light User Guide  & troubleshooting 11

RigidStrips join end-to-end with the integrated linking connector.
Remove the included end cap and gently insert the protruding connector of the next light into the place the end cap was. The connector is designed to insert one way only, be sure the LEDs are facing the same direction.

After connecting together any adjacent RigidStrip sections, use gentle pressure to snap them into the surface mount clips.
Note: If connecting 3 or more RigidStrips in a row, it may be necessary to fi rst install the lights into the clips, then slide them together to complete the connection.Armacost RigidStrip Linkable LED Light User Guide  & troubleshooting 14

Use the 2-in. Jumper Connector to connect two RigidStrips at an angle, or around a corner. Splice in additional wire to extend the connector and bridge larger gaps and turns in your lighting layout.Armacost RigidStrip Linkable LED Light User Guide  & troubleshooting 15

Be sure all wire splice connections are secure and sealed. Options include soldering, electrical tape, crimp connectors, terminal blocks, wire nuts, etc.

Complete your installation by applying power with a 60-in. Power Lead Connector. Hook up a Power Lead Connector to the fi rst light in each leg. Be sure polarity is properly connected to your power supply and power on to test.

Troubleshooting

RigidStrip does not light

  • Make sure your LED power supply is receiving 120-volt power.
  • Confi rm you have maintained correct polarity (+ to + and – to –) when joining RigidStrips to the power supply.
  • Check all connections and any switch or dimmer connections from the power supply to the LED tape light. Consider testing with a multimeter to ensure your RigidStrip is receiving power.

Only part of the RigidStrip array is lit

  • Check connections at the part where the RigidStrips transfer from lit to unlit.
  • Confi rm that your strips are facing the same direction and the connectors are pushed together tightly.

RigidStrip blinks on and off

  • Your power supply is not adequate for the amount of RigidStrips you are powering. Install a higher wattage power supply or reduce watts used by removing RigidStrip sections.

LEDs farthest from the power supply are noticeably dimmer

  • This is the result of a voltage drop. Decrease the length of the power feed wires or use thicker power feed wires between the power supply and the tape lighting.
  • Do not exceed 8 sections in one leg of lighting. Consider separating your lighting into multiple, smaller legs.
