FAQs for Kick-HO-Ribbon
How bright is this compared to fluorescent? and compared to Lumilines?
A: The daylight white version is comparable to T5 fluorescent and 25% brighter than Lumilines.
How does the output of Kick HO Ribbon compare to Xenon?
A: Kick HO Ribbon is about 50% brighter than Xenon (and without the heat and high power input required by Xenon). A typical 5 watt Xenon festoon bulb is spec'd at 40 lumens but they are measuring all the way around the bulb. With 4 of Xenon bulbs per foot youget 160 lumens. Kick HO Ribbon is producing 175 lumens (from only 3 watts) but you get all of that light going in the direction you want. So you have more output from much less power and the all of the output is going in the direction you want it to. You can dim our product without color shift.
Can I use this with Lutron dimmers?
A: Lutron now makes a dimmer for low voltage lighting. It fits in standard gangboxes and allows you to dim multiple runs of Kick HO Ribbon from one slider. You cannot use standard incandescent dimmers with 12v LED. We can supply the correct Lutron dimmer gear with your order
Can I use this product in cabinets?
A: Absolutely. Cabinet makers are putting this into wine racks, curio cabinets, kitchen cabinets, library coves and book shelves. The ability to cut to size and the low heat and power make it perfect for cabinetry and wine cellars.
How do I splice sections together?
A: We include splicing kits with each roll but you can also use 14 to 18 gauge wire to jump between sections -- simply solder it to the copper pads.
I am an electrician who installed your HO Ribbon for my customer. There are 2 sections with a jump between them. The SECOND section is lit but the first one isn't. What's wrong?
A: Each of the pairs of copper pads are marked with positive and negative. You need to look closely at these and fix the polarity on the first section. be sure to connect and splice positive to positive, neg to neg.
