I have a cabinet with an outlet wired above it. I want to run one strip on the top of the cabinet and one on the bottom. Can I plug both strips into the power supply or do I need to daisy chain the two strips?

Answer: 
You can only plug one strip into the power supply, you'll need to daisy chain the two strips in order to use a single power supply.

Answer: 
You can have as many separate strips connected back to your power supply as you like, so long as the total combined wattage does not exceed the rating of said power supply. Due to the effects of voltage drop, longer lengths of RibbonFlex use fewer watts per foot than short lengths. These same effects also impose maximum limits to run lengths of the lighting. To find out if your setup is appropriate, find Read More
You can have as many separate strips connected back to your power supply as you like, so long as the total combined wattage does not exceed the rating of said power supply. Due to the effects of voltage drop, longer lengths of RibbonFlex use fewer watts per foot than short lengths. These same effects also impose maximum limits to run lengths of the lighting. To find out if your setup is appropriate, find the model of LED tape lighting you are using and check power consumption on our wattage chart found here: http://www.armacostlighting.com/documents/Power_requirement_chart.pdf
If your LED strip lengths are over the maximum, you’ll need to break them down into shorter runs of lighting. If the wattage of the two lengths combined exceeds the 30-Watt maximum of this product, you might consider a larger power supply, like our 60-Watt (homedepot.com SKU# 203227258)

Answer: 
For a simple solution to achieve independent switching on two zones with a single power supply, you can use a simple inline toggle switch (See HD.com SKU# 540439). This would be used to turn on/off one circuit or the other on the 12V DC output side of the power source. Contact Armacost Support at support@armacostlighting.com if you need more assistance with your project.

Answer: 
You can't. To switch each 6 footer independently you'll need two power supplies. The 15-watt power supply has plenty of power for a 6 foot run. Order two model number 204512734, they're under $20 each.

Answer (1)

October 5, 2016
Answer: 
If all 16 feet of lighting is powered from one end of the strip (a straight run configuration), two 8ft segments of this lighting will draw about 29 Watts of power - under the 30W limit. However, if you need to break the 16 feet of lighting into multiple smaller sections, each connected back directly to the color controller (an array configuration), then your wattage usage will be higher and this power Read More
If all 16 feet of lighting is powered from one end of the strip (a straight run configuration), two 8ft segments of this lighting will draw about 29 Watts of power - under the 30W limit. However, if you need to break the 16 feet of lighting into multiple smaller sections, each connected back directly to the color controller (an array configuration), then your wattage usage will be higher and this power supply might not work for you. For more information about different configurations, and to determine the wattage draw of your lighting on a per foot basis, refer to the RibbonFlex instructions on page 2: http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/21/212baf58-b36d-40f0-be0d-89e6d40a858e.pdf Calculate the wattage draw of each leg of lighting individually, then add them together for your total wattage consumption - choose a power supply rated above this number.

My 15W power supply heats up a bit while driving 12W of LEDs. If I upgrade to this 30W version, will it heat up less?

Answer (1)

August 8, 2016
Answer: 
Yes, the 30Watt power supply will likely produce less heat than the 15W, though not by a wide margin. Any power supply will typically heat up as the LED load approaches a higher percentage of its maximum rated wattage. However, it is also normal for a power supply to generate some heat during operation, and should not be cause for concern. All of Armacost Lighting’s power supplies feature thermal Read More

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small, versatile, easy installation Bought these power supplies to power the Armacost 12v LED tape lights. These can be plugged into an outlet, or you can remove the power cord and direct wire them. They are small, low-profile, and come with mounting holes, so they are suitable for undercabinet lighting. I ordered 2 for my installation, but one arrived DOA. This demonstrated the benefit of ordering from The Home Depot online. I simply took the defective part to my local Home Depot store, and they gave me credit, no questions asked. I didn't have to bother getting an RMA, re-boxing, and shipping it back like I would with other online retailers. I then ordered another one and it arrived in working order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Power Supply This power supply is required for the LED strip lights. It is powerful enough to supply a double string of tape lights in a small kitchen. It can be plugged into a outlet or directly wired into an AC power supply. It is a little difficult to direct wire 12 AWG cable due to the sharp bends needed to make the connection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fairly easy to install and they are working great Fairly easy to install, I direct wired them (the way it’s build makes getting a 14 gauge wire in a little hard, but not too bad) to a wall switch and the other I direct wired it by pulling power from an outlet and routed it through a dimmer (make sure your dimmer is compatible). Remember this is electrical work if you are direct wiring be careful or call a electrician.... Direct wiring makes it a little harder but if you go with the attached plug... you'll ahve it done in no time

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could Use an On/Off Switch Electrical contractor had no problem installing this with under-counter tape light. The power source is nestled nicely and neatly in kitchen cabinet. It's not in a switched outlet, so could use an on-off switch on the power supply.
