  • Features

    Our latest COB (Chip on Board) flexible LED tape light is set to shake up the lighting industry. This highly advanced offering sets new standards for LED strip lighting, with its dot-free lighting array and invisible LED chips. Delivering a fluorescent-like linear illumination.

    It has an impressive 480 LEDs per metre behind a totally diffused COB style phosphor cover. Priced per metre, it can be cut and soldered to your exact specifications with its 50mm cut points, or it can be supplied on 10 metre metre reels. You will need to consider 'volt drop' issues with longer runs of over 10 metres but their are numerous ways of overcoming this such as wiring each run directly back to the power source. Our sales team can offer technical advise on any project, no matter how big or small.

    Compared with the now dated SMD (Surface Mount Device) LED tape which can appear 'glary', showing those unsightly LED chips, this new technology is like upgrading from a 14" portable TV to a high definition widescreen OLED TV.

    With an energy consumption of 15 watts per metre, it produces 1650 to 2000 lumens per metre, which equates to 1650 lumens for 2700K extra warm white, 1750 lumens for 3000K warm white and 2000 lumens for 4000K cool white. Providing an efficacy of up to 133 lumens per watt, which is twice as efficient as many others on the market.

    It has shorter cut points which improves flexibility at just 50mm and a high CRI (Colour Rendering Index) of CRI90 as standard. This is a technologically advanced LED tape for premium users who demand something more.

    We stated in 2019 that "this LED tape will one day become the industry standard, as soon as the other manufacturers have caught up and cleared their old stock" and this is now becoming the case.

    The self adhesive TESA 4965 backed tape offers high color efficiency, uniform illumination and a wide beam angle of 140 degrees. It is ideal for displays, exhibitions, kitchen under-cabinets, cove lighting applications and much more.

    It can be ordered with the standard 150mm input tails or with specially soldered input and output connections available on request.

    General LED TAPE Questions & Answers 

    What is COB tape?

    COB stands for Chip on Board, it's a series of miniature LED chips positioned on a PCB (Printed Circuit Board). It is a new, more advanced version of LED strip tape. We originally released COB tape in 2019 and are now on our third generation which is even brighter and more cost effective.

    With 8 times more LED chips per metre (480 per metre with this version) than older LED strips, it produces a seamless lighting array.

    Can COB LED tape be cut?

    Yes, one of the main key selling features of LED tape is that it can be cut down to size. Cut points vary in length, this COB strip tape has cut points every 50mm. COB tape is no different in terms of cutting than other LED tapes, apart from having shorter cutting points for 24V versions, which are usually twice as long as 12V.

    Can I cut LED tape myself?

    LED tape has clearly marked cut points located at 50mm sections but once its been, a new input cable or connector needs adding. You can either solder an input cable, a connecting pin or use a snap on, solder-free wiring connector; we have a selection of different types here:

    Do you offer bespoke soldering services?

    Yes, we offer an in-house soldering service and can supply any of our LED strip tapes in made to measure lengths. This can speed up your installation times as all of the sections are cut to size with the exact input cable you need. Some applications such as kitchen under cabinets may require an output cable which allow you to go around an obstacle such as a kitchen hob.

    Bespoke lengths are available on request, please email your enquiry to: [email protected] or complete the form below and one of our LED tape experts will be in touch.

    Do I need a transformer to power LED tape?

    LED tape operates on low voltage, usually 12V or 24V DC. A transformer isn't technically the correct term as it only converts an AC voltage into a lower AC voltage, while an LED driver converts AC into DC.

    Can LED tape be dimmed?

    Yes, you just need a dimmable LED driver and an LED compatible dimmer switch. We have some recommendations in the table below.

    Which size LED driver do I need?

    Multiply the wattage of the LED tape by the overall length. This LED tape is 15 watts per metre, if you have a 5 metre run, the calculation would be 15 x 5 = 75. This gives you 75 watts, you then select an LED driver that is big enough to carry the load.

    In the table below, we have recommendations for some of the most popular lengths with options for dimmable and non dimmable drivers. If you click on any of the product codes you will be taken directly to them. The 15W dimmable driver shown in the table has a low minimum load of just 0.75W meaning it could dim just 50mm of LED tape.

    If you want to power anything longer than 10M, you'll need to consider 'volt drop' issues, which is when the voltage drops out along the strip. This is due to resistance, we have many options of getting around this such as using multiple smaller drivers or wiring each run directly back to a bigger driver and butting the LED strips next to one another.

    Our experienced design team can help you plan out your installation every step of the way. We can provide you with your own personal wiring diagram and help you select the right LED drivers and accessories.

    Set Descending Direction
    Hi, Are any of your LED strips UL?
    Question by: Steve on 29 Nov 2023, 11:35
    I'll check, how much are you looking for?
    Answer by: Chris Horridge (Admin) on 29 Nov 2023, 12:49
    Can this tape be Bent at 90 degrees inside a 10mm aluminium profile?
    Thanks
    Question by: Dan on 6 May 2023, 11:41
    You're always best with soldered cables between corners to prevent damage to the tape.
    Answer by: Mathew Smith (Admin) on 9 May 2023, 08:08
    Hi, I want to buy this product and the recommended driver but would like to check if this is suitable for a motion sensor (infrared hand switch) I already have installed - BHIRH-250A Patented 250W IR Sensor Switch Dual Voltage 100-240V, max 70w LED. The new LED strip and driver is to replace a faulty one I had installed.
    Question by: Leonor on 21 May 2023, 14:42
    Yes as long as you switch the mains side of the driver.
    Answer by: Mathew Smith (Admin) on 22 May 2023, 08:21
    Does the tape come with input cables attached? I will only require 1 metre of tape is the Mean Well Constant Voltage 24V LED Driver 20W IP67 the most suitable, I don't require the tape to be dimmable?
    Many thanks
    Question by: Simon on 23 May 2023, 11:59
    Yes, each strip comes with a fully soldered input cable.
    Yes, for 1 metre, the Mean Well 20W, 24V driver (LPV-20-24) would be the best option.
    Answer by: Chris Horridge (Admin) on 23 May 2023, 12:13
    Hi, Can you please advise if this is suitable for installing in a wooden picture rail, facing upwards? The tape is to be installed directly onto the wood, there will be no aluminium heat sink or diffuser.
    Question by: Samuel Green on 16 Apr 2023, 11:20
    Yes, this will be fine. It is a bright LED strip though, the 4W/ metre version might be a better option:
