Answer: 
Our power supplies can be installed inside cupboards without cooling concerns. Armacost Lighting power supplies are air-cooled units, 1 cubic foot of airspace is usually recommended to properly cool the unit. Most typical cabinets have more than adequate space to house a power supply without issue. All of our power supplies also feature thermal overload protection, and will automatically enter protection Read More

Answer: 
Hello LED16,
Have no fear about any heat generated by the power supply. I have mine in a 18" x 24" Kraftmaid Natural Oak cabinet, along with my spices, oils etc. There is no heat build up in there at all. I even just touched it, with my lights being on now for two hours, there is negligible heat on the power supply.

Answer: 
Yes, indeed you can and I often do secure it inside the cabinet above the microwave because I know I can obtain my 120 VAC source there. The only place I recommend you do not put the power supply is in a hot attic, especially surrounded by insulation. That is the only place I've had a power supply fail.

Answer: 
You do not need to solder or get the fancy ends if the light strip is going to be hidden. I just carefully made a loop to make the 90 turn. You do have to be careful to not bend and crimp otherwise they will not work, but if you keep it fluid it works and you can never tell from the outside.

There are several approved methods for making 90 degree turns with your RibbonFlex Pro LED Tape Lighting. As one community member mentioned, you can make soft bend angles where the tape lighting doesn’t sit flat, like tying a bow. Since the lighting doesn’t sit flat with this method, Armacost Lighting only recommends this for above cabinet or cove mold lighting where the LEDs will be well hidden from view. For making turns under or inside cabinets, and wherever space is limited, we would recommend cutting the lighting and either soldering or using our connectors. Our SureLock Connector with wire (homedepot.com item# 205927566) can bridge small gaps and most turns with your lighting at any angle. We also have a new specialty corner connector which provides the same solution as our other connector, with less wire to hide – available soon on homedepot.com but currently available through our website. See our corner connections tip sheet for more information on this subject: http://www.armacostlighting.com/documents/RibbonFlex-corner-technique.pdf Read Less

Answer: 
There is only one way to make a 90 degree turn, and that is to cut and splice. Spicing can be done with connectors that are provided with the product I believe, but I solder all my junctions so that is why I'm unsure if the connectors are provided because I ignore them. If you solder, you can get away with very small gauge wire such as 22 gauge which makes this job easy.

Hi anonymous,
No, there is no 90 degree adaptor.
It will go at a right angle but it won't lay flat. That is what I had on the top of my cabinets. No one can tell the difference.

All of Armacost Lighting’s LED products run off of 12 Volts DC power. Typically, this is provided by an LED Driver or power supply which converts your 120V AC household power into low voltage 12-volt DC power. Note that installations that already have 12V DC power available (such as Auto, RV or Marine installations) can utilize this existing power, and do not require a separate power supply.

We do have a wireless remote dimmer that can work through walls up to 100 feet away. You would need to purchase our our 2-in-1 White LED Dimmer (homedepot.com item# 203227246) and couple it with the Wireless Touchpad (homedepot.com item# 205884027) for wireless, RF control.

Answer: 
Yes, the light strip is all LED. They run on DC, from a provided 12v, 2000ma power supply. It is made to plug into house current, but if you have a 12 v DC source, you could just run them on that, and not use the power supply. The remote has its own battery, and it is IR. The sensor for the lights gets blinded by the LEDs so turning them off requires being only 5-6 feet from the sensor.

Answer: 
No remote operation for this product. These LED tape lights require a driver (power supply). The driver requires 120 VAC and the driver has a 12 VDC output for the tape light. Switching the driver therefore switches the lights.

Answer: 
Yes indeed you can use a regular residential switch. You have to decide if you're going to switch the 120 VAC input power or the 12 VDC output power. I like to switch the 120 VAC power because I like the idea of the power supply not operational when the lights are off.

Answer: 
Yes, but use the switch to control a 120V outlet and plug the transformer into the outlet.
The dimmer goes in the 12V line after the transformer. Shutting off the dimmer does NOT shut off the transformer which will use electricity 24/7 if it is not switched off from the 120Vs. Yes, the transformer uses electricity even if the lights are shut off with the dimmer.

Answer: 
As long as the receptacle is switched, yes.
Remember, these lights do not wire directly to 120V AC power. You are required to purchase the 30-60W power supply and that power supply plugs in to a standard receptacle. If that receptacle is switched, then yes, you can turn them on off with a wall switch.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 201 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice addition to kitchen..sometimes Put in remodel about six months ago. Put in a 60 watt transformer with the wireless dimmer. All armcost products.Worked great for the first five months. Then, went on vacation for a month, came home and lights were on. Thought, maybe the power flickered, making them trigger on, then, every day since, they'd continuously go on and off throughout the day. Trying to get answers from armcost on this issue as it is getting rather annoying. August 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lighting, ceiling tile, ceiling fan .....Den Remodel The LED lights were perfect for this application as we wanted to be able to dim them and did not want to have to replace them due to the complexity of getting to them. This product was flexible so that we were able to bend them to fit the custom frame we built to hold the stained glass windows. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great undercabinet lighting I had an electrician install the direct connect dimmable DC power supply then I installed the lights and stuck them to the bottom of the cabinet. The light strip itself was very easy to maneuver around corners without the need for cutting and re-splicing. What I like the best is the constant stream of light all the way across the strip, there are no dark spots. I have this on a dimmer switch and I found that only half brightness is more than enough. The two pictures show the slightly different coloring but they definitely look more cool white I think because of the backsplash. June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best choice for under cabinet lights These LED lights went up as easy as tape. The only trouble I had was the direction the tape fit in to the connectors. Integration with a dimmer and power supply was a breeze. And they look fantastic. They are far more energy efficient than the halogen spot lights normally used, and require far less effort to install. I had to drill some holes through my cabinets for wires to pass through, and I did a more advanced installation where I needed to install a receptacle above my cabinets and also install the low-v dimmer in the wall, but these things are not needed in many basic installations. May 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NOT WHITE LIGHT, BLUE LED HUE If your looking for white warm under cabinet lighting, skip this! The white comes out as a blue hue and makes food look awful. However, we are buying more to do over and under the cabinets. The colors and color options are incredible. If you go to strobe and hold the speed up button, it is an actual strobe light. We will have two total so we can do two different colors for sports games and holidays like fourth of july (red and blue) or green and yellow for Green Bay Packers. Kitchen is only half done and just playing around with it since it will definitely not be used under the counters for normal light. April 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Top quality I was hesitant about the strength and reliability of LED lights on a thin strip of tape, but this product executes it perfectly. The tape is strong, the adhesive is strong, and the lights are bright. I opted to solder the connections which was super easy with the soldering instructions and tips on Armacost's website. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Provide lots of light I placed these under my kitchen cabinets. The installation was quite easy and the provided instructions were excellent. The results were excellent and the counters are well illuminated by these LEDs. August 16, 2016
