LED Waterproof Connector Definition and Specification
The LED waterproof connector is a connector that can be applied to a water-bearing environment to provide a safe and reliable connection, and to ensure normal mechanical and electrical performance of the connector under a certain water pressure. Widely used in outdoor applications of various LED lamps, such as LED strips, LED spotlights, LED wallwashing, LED billboard lighting, LED tunnel lighting, LED floodlighting and LED street lighting.
At present, the main evaluation standard for waterproof performance of waterproof connectors is based on IP protection level. Look at the waterproof performance of the waterproof connector, mainly look at the second digit Y behind the IPXY, the first digit X is from 0 to 6, the highest level is 6, which is to protect the solid foreign objects from entering the device shell; the second digit It is from 0 to 8, with a maximum rating of 8, which is the degree of protection against water entering the device enclosure in various forms; therefore the highest level of protection for the connector is IP68. The highest level of connector IP68 test, its test equipment, test conditions and test time, agreed by the supply and demand (sales and purchase). Connector protection for outdoor use requires at least IP67. Connection connectors for underwater use should be IP68 rated. Depending on the time of use of the connector, water depth, etc., different types of connectors are used.
The LED has two pins, one positive and one negative, and the new tube has a short length and a long positive. If it is a transparent tube, you can see that there are two electrodes inside the tube, one big and one small, generally small and positive. When the LED is working normally, the voltage at both ends is about 3.5V, and the current is 20mA. When the wiring is connected, the positive pole is connected to the positive pole of the power supply, but a voltage dividing current limiting resistor must be connected in series in the loop. Make the LED work in the normal range. If you do not know how much resistance in series, replace it with a 10K adjustable resistor and adjust the resistance under the monitoring of the ammeter until the LED works normally. The LEDs can be connected in series or in parallel.
