Default LED strip as tail light



overlap as each LED is a point source, so the closer they are together, the
brighter the light you construct will be; but to cover a large area you need
a real lot. We compromised and constructed the LEDs into 40 cm strips that
we can place close together or seperate according to the intensity required
and area to cover. Our strips have the LEDs 10mm apart in 3 rows mounted on
velo board. This seemed to give us the most efficient result. There are 120
LEDs per strip. I can send more detail, drawings etc if you wish. We mounted
these strips in polycarbonate tubes for protection (expensive, but
transmission is clear and perspex will craze). You need the appropriate
resistors in the line, that sort of info comes with the LEDs. They plug into
240 - 12 v transformers; we can dial down the power output on these for
lower intensities.
