LED-Man’s Big Questions 08/06/15

We are pleased to introduce LED Man. His mission is to help people make the upgrade to LED lighting and by doing so save them money and help save the planet, one bulb at a time. His first task is answer the big questions most commonly asked by you.

Q: What is the range of the sensor on the LED floodlights?

A: You select ranges of 3-12 meters.


Q: Can I use one remote for several multicolour LED GU10s?

A: Yes you can run as many as you want. They just have to be visible from the point of using the remote, i.e the same room.

Q: Which is better, the normal GU10 or the CREE integrated downlight?

A: The CREE integrated downlight is available in 9 and 12 watt versions, so provides a strong, bright light in either warm white, cool white or daylight. It is dimmable and has a smaller cutout than the GU10 downlighters, at 55mm as opposed to 70mm. The GU10 fittings offer flexibility in that you can tailor the lamp choice to suit your requirements. Also in the event of a lamp failure or change of mind, the lamp can be replaced without having to remove the fitting. This means that they both have different plus points. In general most people use GU10 fittings in their home.

Q: What are the options for the CREE downlights?

A: They are supplied with a white bezel, but chrome brushed metal and graphite bezels are also available. You would need to call and we can add them to your order.

Q: Can I select multiple colour options on the 2D ceiling lights?

A: Unfortunately, one colour option only can be selected for these. You do have different sensor options to choose from though.

Q: What is the largest floodlight you sell?

A: We have recently started selling a 200 watt floodlight on the trade website, which is 16000 lumens.

Q: How do I make right angle bend in my LED strip?

A: You can solder flex to the strip or you can use the strip to cable connectors like these:

Alternatively you can strip kit with corner connectors if your electrical skills aren’t as advanced. It allows you to effortlessly guide your strip around cabinets and cupboards.

    How can I join two or more lengths of L.E.D. Strips to each other? I was under the impression all I had to do remove to protection around the strip and then use a strip connecting kit sold by yourselves but when I scrape off the protection on the LED strip all I find is a continuous copper (?) covering which does not seem to work.
    Please help as my soldering ain’t wot it used to be

    Hi James

    If these strips are cut in the right place they will expose the copper connections for joining to the next strip. It sounds like you have pealed more than you should have and have exposed the wires not the connection points. the strips show were they can be cut for connection. Instead of soldering they can use these to join 2 strips together

    I hope this has helped
