A LED Strip Light is a flexible circuit board populated by surface mounted light-emitting diodes that usually comes with an adhesive backing.
Traditionally, strip lights had been used solely in accent lighting, back lighting, task lighting, and decorative lighting applications. Recent developments in increased luminous efficacy and longer lifespans have allowed LED strip liledghts to be used in applications such as high brightness task lighting, fluorescent and halogen lighting fixture replacements, indirect lighting applications, Ultra Violet inspection during manufacturing processes, set and costume design, and even growing plants.
Strip lights are designed for both indoor and outdoor use depending on whether they’re water resistant. Since the strip is flexible and can be divided at any point between LEDs, it is extremely versatile and can be utilited in a number of installations. Outside of traditional lighting, strip lighting is extensively used in DIY projects or lighted clothing.
