About our 27-Foot String of 50 LED Channel Rays
The LED Channel Ray is great for use with sign lighting, channel letters, backlighting, silhouettes, displays and a variety of fluorescent retrofits where cold temperatures exist. The LED Channel Rays are designed for cool operation and heat doesn't build up inside enclosures ensuring long-lasting LED lighting. The LED Channel Rays have a sleek, low profile that easily fit inside smaller letters and housings.

REQUIRED CONSTANT VOLTAGE DRIVER
One 12-volt DC driver is required for each continuous run. Three types are available. Be sure to select an LED driver whose wattage rating is equal to or slightly greater than the total wattage of the LED Channel Ray run being powered. All of these items are ordered separately.
- Calculating Total Wattage of Run: to determine the LED driver you need, calculate the total wattage rating of your channel ray run by multiplying the number of modules you intend to power by 0.72 watts. For example, for 50 modules, you would need to select a driver for at least 36 watts (50 Modules x 0.72W/Module = 36W).
- Non-Dimmable Plug-In: choose from 36- or 60-watt plug-in drivers. A maximum load of 80% is recommended. For example, if you select the 60-watt driver, a maximum of 48 watts should be connected.
- Non-Dimmable Hardwire: choose from 60- or 100-watt hardwire drivers.
- Dimmable Magnetic Hardwire: a 60-watt dimmable hardwire driver is available.
All of these Accessories are ordered separately.
- Magnetic Low Voltage Dimmers: for use with dimmable LED driver
