Nowadays, many families choose different combinations of lamps in lighting design to achieve the best effect of decoration in order to make the decoration more beautiful. The convenience and beauty of LED light strips have made them popular in home decoration in recent years. The design of LED light strips can well express the layering of space. Make the home environment softer and more atmospheric. When used normally, LED light strips have a service life of four to five years. If the home facilities are properly maintained, they can last for dozens of years. LED light strips are often overloaded, collided, bent, exposed to the sun, rain, etc., and their lifespan will be shortened instantly. Only accurate use and maintenance can make LED light strips last longer. Below, Zhengbang Optoelectronics will bring you several methods for maintaining LED light strips.

How to accurately maintain LED light strips?

1. Anti-collision

Do not subject LED light strips to impact during installation and maintenance. Collision may damage, short-circuit or burn out the internal parts of the light strip.

2. Anti-bending

LED light strips should be avoided from bending during installation. Large bends during installation may lead to desoldering and short circuiting of the light strips.

3. Reasonable use time

Light bulbs tend to get hot when used for a long time. Some users use the light strip as a night light at home and turn it on for a long time. Even if the light strip has a long life, long-term operation is a fatal injury. Arrange the use time of the light strip reasonably, and it is also a good choice for the lamp. It’s a way to take care of yourself.

4. Avoid sustained high temperatures

LEDs cannot withstand high temperatures continuously, and their chips will be burned out by high temperatures. Therefore, the soldering iron used when repairing LED light strips must be a temperature-controlled soldering iron to limit the temperature within a range and prohibit arbitrary changes and settings.

5. Standardized cutting

When the light strip is too long or does not match the size of the decoration part, it is often necessary to cut the LED light strip. Each section has a (scissors) mark and must be cut within the marked range to ensure the integrity of the internal parts.

6. Moisture-proof
Lamp strips or lamps will absorb moisture if they are exposed to the air for a long time. Dehumidification and waterproofing should be done before use to avoid the heat expansion of the moisture in the LED strip due to excessively high temperatures and long reflow soldering periods during reflow soldering. Causes the LED package to burst, which indirectly causes the LED chip to overheat and be damaged.

7. Static electricity burnout

Since LED is an electrostatically sensitive component, if the electrostatic protection work is not done well during the production process, the LED chip will be burned out due to static electricity, resulting in the LED light strip not lighting up.

8. Regular inspection

Regular inspections of lamps and lanterns at home can not only extend their service life, but also improve their safety.
