In the simplest terms, a light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor device that emits light when an electric current is passed through it. Light is produced when the particles that carry the current (known as electrons and holes) combine together within the semiconductor material. Since light is generated within the solid semiconductor material, LEDs are described as solid-state devices. The term solid-state lighting, which also encompasses organic LEDs (OLEDs), distinguishes this lighting technology from other sources that use heated filaments (incandescent and tungsten halogen lamps) or gas discharge (fluorescent lamps).
LED (Light Emitting Diodes) lights are the latest and most fascinating technological advancement in the lighting industry. LEDs are small, solid light bulbs that are powerful, energy-efficient, and long lasting. LEDs operate in different ways than traditional incandescent bulbs. This makes LEDs far more durable than traditional incandescent light bulbs. LED technology also provides many additional advantages over incandescent, fluorescents, and compact fluorescent lamps and lighting devices. This includes an exceptionally longer lifespan (60,000 hours), significantly lower energy consumption (90% more efficient), reduced maintenance costs, and higher safety.
You certainly hear and read a lot about the benefits associated with the energy efficiency of LED light emitting diodes versus traditional lighting. When you compare them to other energy-saving illumination methods that are currently available, you will find that LED lamps are definitely the smartest and most power-saving solution for illumination. The top 8 benefits of using LED lights over their less efficient alternatives can be read below.
LEDs are packed powerfully with sufficient energy and use up to 90% less power than incandescent light bulbs.
LEDs have a lifespan of up to 60,000 hours as opposed to 1,500 hours typical of incandescent bulbs.
LEDs are solid express lighting devices that utilize semiconductor material rather than a filament or neon gas.
Superior safety may be the most significant benefit of LEDs. LED lamps generate almost no warmth therefore they are cool to the touch and can be left on for hours without incident or consequence if touched, no glass, no UV and IR, no mercury and so on.
LEDs are made of non-toxic materials, unlike neon lighting that use mercury that may pose a danger to the environment. LED is recyclable and also considered “green”, or earth-friendly.
LED lighting are offered in a variety of base colors, such as red, blue, and amber. Due to the fact that traditional incandescent bulbs use filters to produce colors, they are extremely bad. LEDs can be mixed together to produce large numbers of color options.
LEDs are poised to replace traditional incandescent lights. LEDs are rapidly, without a doubt, becoming the preferred lighting solution of both homes and offices. long-lasting life up to 50,00 hours.
LEDs are currently used for a wide variety of different applications, such as in residential lighting, the military, as well as the architectural, automotive, transmissions, electronic instrumentation, the entertainment and gaming, the military, and the traffic and transportation industry. Since LEDs are focused lights, they are great at performing some specific lighting tasks, such as desk lamps, reading lights, night lights, security signals, spotlights, accent lamps, and lighting for signs.
LEDs create light by electroluminescence in a semiconductor material. Electroluminescence is the phenomenon of a material emitting light when electric current or an electric field is passed through it - this happens when electrons are sent through the material and fill electron holes. An electron hole exists where an atom lacks electrons (negatively charged) and therefore has a positive charge. Semiconductor materials like germanium or silicon can be "doped" to create and control the number of electron holes. Doping is the adding of other elements to the semiconductor material to change its properties. By doping a semiconductor you can make two separate types of semiconductors in the same crystal. The boundary between the two types is called a p-n junction. The junction only allows current to pass through it one way, this is why they are used as diodes. LEDs are made using p-n junctions. As electrons pass through one crystal to the other they fill electron holes. They emit photons (light).
The P-N junction is the basis of the functioning of the LED. The LED has an anode and a cathode separated by a crystal of semiconductor material. Addition of impurities to the semiconductor material produces P-N junctions within the chip. The entire assembly is within a plastic cover that can also double up as a lens to guide the light emitted by the LED.
Phosphors are used to help filter the light output of the LED. They create a more pure "harsh" color. Engineers had to figure out how to control the angle the light escapes the semiconductor, this "light cone" is very narrow. They figured out how to make light refract or bounce off all surfaces of the semiconductor crystal to intensify the light output. This is why LED displays traditionally have been best viewed from one angle.
LED light (our corn product LED flexible strips, neon flex) can be used for wide ranges, such as Architectural, Office, Retail, Hotel, Home, Hospital, Heritage, Landscape and so on, even we can say where is the corner, where is the LED strip light.
FINELED offer color temperature is 1800K, 2200K, 2600K, 3000K, 4000K and 6000K as standard white CCT’s and Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Pink, Yellow, Ice blue, Golden yellow as a standard single color. Additionally, Dynamic color adjustable color from 2700-6000K, we also offer color-changing RGB, RGBW, RGBWW, RGBA and so on.
Standard RGB LED strip uses a 3-in-1 LED chip made up of red, green and blue chips. It can produce a wide range of colours by mixing the three and looks almost white with all three at full brightness. RGB+W LED strip uses either a 4-in-1 LED chip that has a white chip as well as red, green and blue or an RGB chip alongside a white chip.
Fixtures with red, green, blue and white LEDs create vivid (warm white or cold white), bright colors. RGBW fixtures project a cool shade of white and are ideal for color mixing pastels. Add white to any standard color and adjust the saturation to achieve your client’s desired shade. In addition to creating pastels, white LEDs can be used independently so you do not have to mix colors to achieve it. Choosing the right LED combination depends on your gigs and the colors you want to achieve. Before you make your purchase, do some homework and check your books to see what colors received the most requests, ask your fellow DJ friends about their client’s requests or log onto a DJ forum and conduct your own poll. Both combinations create an enormous amount of colors — deciding on the shade of those colors is where your expertise comes in.
Fixtures with red, green, blue and amber LEDs create warm, rich colors. RGBA fixtures project a warm shade of white and exceptionally rich shades of gold, yellow and orange. Additionally, adding amber to standard colors broadens the color spectrum. Amber LEDs are a major benefit to RGBA fixtures because it is difficult to achieve the amber color through color mixing.

Sometime, we need to solder a LED light strip or we need to make a joint connection between two LED light strips, following steps will help you to understand how to operate.
1 Cut the silicon cover together with the copper dots of LED light strip
LED strip lights are designed to be easy to cut apart with a pair of scissors. Each LED has a pair of copper dots at the end. As long as you cut between the dots, all of the LEDs will work. From there, you can connect the LEDs to a power source either through a quick connector or by soldering. If they are connected correctly, all of the LEDs should light up in a colorful display.
There are many ways to dim the LED strip lights, mostly welcome way are PMW, DALI, 0/1-10V and DMX512. Depending on your design on lighting wiring layout and need to see what is it from your original lighting wiring layout.
If you’re looking to add colors or subtlety to a place, likes room, kitchen, cabinet, bed room, washroom and etc... LEDs are a great choice. LEDs come in big rolls that you can easily set up even if you don’t have any electrical experience. A successful installation just takes a little bit of planning at first to ensure you get the right length of LEDs and a power supply to match. Then, you can connect the LEDs with purchased connectors or by soldering them together. Connectors are easier to use, but soldering is the better option for a more permanent way to join LED strips and connectors. Finish by sticking the LEDs in place through their adhesive backing, then plug them in to enjoy the ambiance they create.
Yes, we have our own strong engineer teams skilled on this. we can design PCB arrangement according to customer's specification and print any of logo, CE, UL number on the PCB, We welcome all OEM and ODM orders from all over the world.

The LEDs used on our LED strips are from Epistar (1966) made in Taiwan, who is a very professional brand manufacturer that has a long lifetime 50000 hours as expected.
A part of LEDs used on our LED strips are from Samsung and Soeul, like 3535, 3030, 5630.
Many of the cheaper LED strips use LEDs which from the outside look identical to the Epistar LEDs but they are cheap Chinese copies with poor internal materials which give rise to a short lifespan. The LEDs on these cheap strips are usually mounted to a very thin circuit board with copper tracks that do not adequately dissipate the heat away from the LEDs further shortening the lifetime of the product.
Most of these LED strips are designed for short term use such as festivals and holidays. The cheap Chinese The LED strip can also have LEDs which are poorly graded for color consistency so the color along the length of the same strip can look very uneven, for example some LEDs may appear a different white color to others which can look blue or warm white in color, or LED damaged, or light attenuation, etc...
For long term use and professional installation, our LED strips are the much wider choice http://www.fine-led.com/index.php?s=/sys/list/12.html.
High effciency LED strips can reaches 140-150lm per watt, the lower output power, the higher lumensoutput, save the electrical billing.

SDCM is an acronym which stands for Standard Deviation Colour Matching. SDCM has the same meaning as a “MacAdam ellipse”. it determines the light color of LED lights in similar color temperature.
Peoples kept saying the lower step McAdam, the better color consistency matching.
CRI (color rendering index) is a measure of how accurately a light source illuminates objects' true colors, High-CRI LED lighting is a light-emitting diode (LED) lighting source that offers a high color rendering index (CRI). CRI is a quantitative measure of a light's ability to reproduce the colors of objects faithfully in comparison with an ideal or natural light source.
FINELED use at least Ra80 led chips to do our led strip lights. When we test by the integrating sphere machine, it usually shows Ra85+ for most of our led chips. We also use many Ra90 and Ra95 led chips for special projects. We can offer the test report for each batch of our led strip light.
