DIY with bridgelux eb strips


#442

Yes. I had it cut. Will a 12x12 with the 10 strips take care of my 32"x32"? If so I’ll just follow your lead. I have just about memorized this thread.


#443

32" x 32" is probably a little bigger than you’d want to do with that light.


#444

Do you have a 32x32" tent or a 3x3’?


#445

32x32x60


#446

If you’re ok with not having dimming, do meanwell lpc-100-700 with 7 560mm bridgelux eb gen 2 strips in 3500k.

That’s a pretty budget minded build and will go good on your 12x24" plate. Two of those would blow a tent that size up.

Im sorry I really tried to figure all this out to keep from bugging you but no experience and I cant afford a pricey screw up.


#448

Welder by trade but nothing electrical.


#449

That’s alright, this is about the same as replacing cord on vacuum cleaner.


#450

Okay if you say so. Lol.


#451

Picture it as mig welding lol.

OMG!!! I am soooo🤯. I have been waiting for this post anxiously I dont know how I missed it!!! Thank you. I am ordering here in a couple minutes. Thanks again. I’ll show my progress when I get started for check of approval and a go ahead!!!


#453

Cool! Did you locate other items you’ll need to complete build?


#454

Yes all I’m waiting on is driver and strips.


#455

Thanks for pointing out what exactly I needed!! :star_struck::star_struck:


#456

No problem! You have thermal transfer tape, power cord, connectors?


#457

Yes @dbrn32 I have rounded everything up that’s on your list for the 12x12. All I need to start is driver and strips. Now they dont have the bridgelux strips. He has Samsung strips 560mm and elg-150-c700b that I can order now. What do you say about that? I told him a had to speak to my advisor!! Lol.


#458

Negative on the elg driver unless you’re powering with 220v?

The Samsung strips could be ok, depends on which one? They make a lot of different strips.

Check arrow electronics, they may even have discount code for first order.


#459

WHOOOHOOOO!!! Strips and driver being overnited!!! Thank goodness!!
