I have a mobile ice cream truck. (Street vending). I have a fluorescent light over my serving window. On each side of the window I have a menu. I want to know if a rope light is practical to put over the menus for viewing.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on February 16, 2014
I think that would be a great use of rope light. One issue is that these kits are 120V line voltage. Most vehicles have low voltage circuits.

When considering your LED Tape Lighting (i.e. P120-TL60-30); the specs indicate a total length of 32.8'. How many inches short of either end of the tape do the LEDs terminate?
Your assistance with this inquiry is appreciated.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on November 1, 2013
Answer:The LEDs at the ends are about 1/4in from the edge.

Can this product be hard wired so it can be used with a light switch?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on February 21, 2014
Answer:No, it is a plug-in kit only.
By Rugeirn Drienborough from Wyoming on March 29, 2014
Answer:You can, of course, set it up on a switched outlet, just as you could with anything else that plugs into the wall.

How do you dim these LEDs?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on November 11, 2013
They are dimmable with standard line voltage incandescent dimmers.

Hi... Do you think these would give enough light to use in an under cabinet (kitchen) situation? I need something I can run under my cabinets and plug in. If not, any other suggestions?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on March 5, 2014
Answer:Yes, it would work well for under cabinet lighting.

By Walter from Dallas, TX on March 5, 2014
Answer:I use these lights under my cabinet and over my sink and the light they provide is more than adequate. The only additional recommendation I would have is to use the 5000k Soft Daylight version, especially for task lighting, because they are slightly brighter and make it easier to focus on your work
By Mark from Jamestown, ND on March 5, 2014
Answer:I bought these for use under my kitchen cabinets and they work great. I purchased the 5000K daylight version and hooked mine to a dimmable incandescent switch so the brightness can be adjusted. You can just plug them directly into a wall outlet if you desire. Very satisfied. Price is right.

Answer:It depends on what you plan on using the LED tape for. If it is for "accent" lighting, then it will work fine. If it is for "task" lighting, then it might be a bit dim. You should do a lumen output analysis. For example, an LED tape puts out about 80 lumens per foot, so a 3 foot section of LED tape would put out about 240 lumens. A 32-inch xenon under counter light fixture puts out 660 lumens - almost three times the amount of light as the LEDs. If you need a task light, I would go with the xenon lamp. The plus of the LED tape is that it will basically last forever and takes very little power, so if it is for an accent light, you can pretty much leave it on all of the time because it takes the same power as a typical night light. It also puts off very little heat; the xenon lamps get pretty hot, so if you have something in the cabinet above the lamp (like chocolate) it might melt. Good luck.

The maximum run is listed as 106 feet. Is this 106 feet of lighting, or does the 106 feet included any between-light-strip connectors that you sell and/or the initial power lead to the first strip?
By Ila from Pegasus Lighting on June 30, 2014
Answer:The 106-foot requirement includes the lighting strip and any connectors (but not the initial power cord).
The 106-foot restriction is based on the total amperage and voltage drop.
By KENNETH E from Tigard, OR on June 30, 2014
Answer:I bought the shorter unit which came with water proof connectors on the end. It did not appear to take enough space so you would notice a gap in lighting. These were bright enough for the under cabinet kitchen lighting application. I put a dimmer on them. My only complaint is that the color is blinding white so do not expect a flourescent look and be prepared to install a dimmer.
By Greg Fangel from Minnesota on July 15, 2014
Are there any low operating temperature concerns with this product? I want to install a row beneath my roof soffit, where temperatures could get as low as -30F in Minnesota.
By Randal from Willow Street , Pa on July 16, 2014
Answer:Hello, our application is floor level lighting in a bathroom over tile flooring - under glass tiles - to give you an idea of the space etc. - these lights look amazing & work wonderfully on a physical sensor - your application may have one weather problem - the heat from these will melt snow therefore will they be weather protected with air circulation (you cannot mount these unable to exhaust the heat - my thoughts go to freezing water when off & melting when on !
Outdoor temp - should be no problem!
By Susanne from Kaplan, LA on July 19, 2014
Answer:These will work for you. I use mine for under kitchen cabinet task lighting and I love them. I also purchased the channels because it gives it a cleaner look. I did a lot of research on LED lighting and wanted the wet location kind because of the moisture from cooking. These are the only ones that I found that would do the job where I wanted them. They are sleek and thin, not like your ordinary rope light. I will be installing these around my deck railings also. We live in the bayou area down south Louisiana and it gets very hot and humid here with lots of rain. So yeah, we'll worth the money.
By Carol Geyer from Boston Ma. on December 10, 2013
My entry hall is dark. I would like to run these around the trim on the ceiling? Also, can I use these in my cabinets and my china closet?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on December 11, 2013
Both applications you have suggested are great uses for this product.
By Rebecca from New York on July 16, 2014
What happens if a single light burns out? Do you have to replace the whole string/set?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on July 17, 2014
Answer:Each series is about 36in long, so if an LED fails then about 36in of the light will not function. So yes, you would need to replace the entire section. Please do note that the product carries a 1-year warranty.
By Mike from Dallas, Texas on July 20, 2014
I have recently added a concrete deck extension to my existing patio which measures 13'8" by 6'. There is a slight gap of about .5 inch where the new concrete butts up against the existing patio on the surface. To show this I have posted a photo of the area. My question "Will the tape-rope light be flexible enough where it can be placed in the gap without damaging the product?" Thank you for your assistance.
By Randal from Willow Street, PA on July 21, 2014
Answer:I would be assured no problem with flexibility of tape or durability - size of opening only challenge,
By Laurie from NYC on July 21, 2014
Answer:We used this lighting to light up an apartment rental's kitchen in NYC. It is quite flexible and bends easily around corners. We love it. 100% satisfied.
By James Love from Biloxi , Mississippi on October 1, 2013
Does the part #P120-TL60 need a controller ? And if so dose it come with it and if not what is the part #?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on October 1, 2013
No, this tape light does not use a controller. It simply plugs into power to turn on/off.
By JohnM from Reston Va on October 8, 2013
How does it turn corners? What is the minimum bend radius? Or do we have to use extensions interconnects to make turns?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on October 8, 2013
You can turn corners with the tape-rope but they will bunch slightly at the point of the turn. They turn much easier than rope light due to the flat shape. If you want a seamless look, then you will need to use extensions.
