I am planning a ceiling installation with WLED and have already made a list of things to buy. Some of them are already ordered but for others I still need some help or in best case approval
As stated before I am planning a ceiling installation. The total length of the strip is 9,6m.
So far I have ordered:
- BTF-LIGHTING WS2815 12V 2*5m
- 10m aluminium profiles with 45° degree where the strip will me mounted to
As per the WLED power calculator the power supply should have ~ 92W@12V. I have heard only good things about Mean Well power supplies. I am ogling with the Mean Well HLG-120H-12A. It can deliver up to 120W but this should be no problem, right? Also I am planning to use AWG 16 ~ 1,5mm² stranded wire for the cabling. Is that enough?
As controller I am planning to use a ready-to-use controller and two relay boards from a german WLED shop.
I am a bit confused regarding the power supply. I do get that with almost 10 m the strip need to be supplied twice. I found different information on how to do that. Some say the second supply needs to be inserted after 5 m. Some say it needs to be done at the end of the strip. Is there any difference or best practice how and where to do it?
