The “Hello” word is arranged using the Zig-Zag LED Strip Lights

Back-lit 3D letter lighting, box lighting, sign letter lighting are a bold and attractive way to advertise businesses, identify locations or just a nifty accent lighting to a DIY project. Despite their beautiful presence and quick attention grabber, did you know behind all those lighting installations lurks one common enemy? If you guessed curves and sharp corners, you are correct.

3D Letters and Sign Letters are notorious for sharp corners and odd curves, not to mention they are very difficult to light up as they require custom size lighting to fit their shapes.

Traditionally, most 3D letter lighting and Sign letter lighting are lit through the use of neon or incandescent light bulbs. Neon lights are filled with dangerous gas in flimsy glass tubes and incandescent light bulbs are inefficient, require more power to use and have a shorter life span.

Fortunately, Solid Apollo LED came up with an alternative and easier way to light up 3D letter boxes.  Introducing the Zig-Zag 3528 24W and 3D 5050 72W LED Strip Lights – they are the perfect substitute for all back-lit lighting, 3D lighting, box lighting, sign letter lighting and more! They are easy to use and installs in seconds.

The Zig-Zag & 3D LED Strip Lights features their own unique advantages that is suitable for the same applications but can also be used to achieve the same results. In my opinion, the only differences between the two LED Strips are application preference and LED chip size.

The Zig-Zag LED Strip lights are designed for sharp corners and odd curves. It features a 3528 LED chip on a flexible Zig-Zag pattern that is 0.09in /2mm wide. Thanks to its Zig-Zag patterns, it allows the LED strip to easily bend on to sharp corners and twist freely adhering on to any direction. This unique design minimizes the use of other accessories like the “L” shape connectors and interconnectors and reduces trimming of the LED strip.

For example, if you were to install the Zig-Zag LED strip lights inside a 3D Letter box rather than a traditional lighting product, you would have the advantage of maneuvering around its 90° corners on the fly with less cutting or trimming and will be able to complete the entire 3D letter box without any add-on accessories.

The Zig-Zag LED strip lights are not only great for sharp corners but they are also perfect on round objects like a table, a clock , an archway, windy paths, the possibilities are endless!

Utilizing the 3D LED Strip Light for Inner Edge Lighting

On the other hand, the distinctive 3D LED Strip Lights is designed solely for inner and outer edge lighting. For starters, the 3D LED Strip Lights features a 5050 LED chip that is soldered on a 6mm 90 degree printed circuit board. This revolutionary design can bend from its original 90 degree angle all the way to 180 degrees.

Just like the Zig-Zag LED Strip Lights, the 3D LED Strip lights can be used in a similar fashion. If you installed the 3D LED strip inside the corner edges of the 3D Letter Box, it will emulate the same lighting as the Zig-Zag LED strip. The only difference is that the 3D LED strips are installed around the edges as opposed to being in the center.

You can also manipulate the 3D LED strip lights for outer edge lighting. For example, if you apply the 3D LED strip on the outer edge of the 3D Letter box, it would create back-lit lighting. You can apply the 3D LED Strips virtually on a multitude of projects and switching the angles from 90° to 180° creates more lighting possibilities that can be used from accent lighting to cove lighting, under cabinet lighting and more!

And thanks to its bendable printed circuit board it easily conforms around sharp corners and round objects avoiding the use of multiple “L” shape connectors or interconnectors.

Well now that you know the advantages of using the Zig-Zag and the 3D LED Strip lights, just keep in mind that the Zig-Zag LED Strip lights are best implemented in sharp corners and the 3D LED Strip Lights are best executed in inner or outer edge lighting.

The Zig-Zag 3528 24W LED Strip Lights and 3D 5050 72W LED Strip Lights are available in Warm White (3K), Daylight White (4K) and White (6K). They are both 16.4ft long and include a female barrel for easy set-up and add-on accessories.

3 Exciting New Lines of Dynamic White LED Strip Lights from Solid Apollo LED

Dynamic White 3014 144W LED Strip Light

Dynamic White 3014 144W LED Strip Light

LED Lighting Company, Solid Apollo LED is thrilled to announce their new Dynamic White 5050 LED Strip Lights. The Dynamic White 5050 72W & 96W LED Strip Lights and 3014 144W LED Strip Lights.

Dynamic White LED Strip Lights are not your traditional LED Strip Lights. These unique LED Strip Lights are designed to create any color tone from a vivid and comfortable warm white (2700k) to a crystal clear pure white (6000k) color temperature.

How does it do it? Simple, it uses 2 different LED Chips placed in an interlacing fashion: Warm White / Pure White, Warm White / Pure White and so forth. By using a 2 circuit Flexible Printed Circuit, individual control can be achieved for both types of Chips.

By using Solid Apollo’s LEDWizard Dynamic White LED Controller or a 3 Channel PWM Dimmer RGB Controller, you can adjust the color temperature on a continuous basis or manipulate and set unique lighting for different scenarios, projects and architectural & commercial applications.

Dynamic White LED Strip Lights can be applied to a multitude of projects and can be best utilized in display cases, retail lighting, museum lighting and art lighting.

According to Manuel Barquin, CEO of Solid Apollo, a perfect example of utilizing the Dynamic White LED Strip Lights is in the Jewelry Business. Gold and diamonds don’t shine well under the same lighting conditions. Diamonds need a higher color temperature, around 5000Kº, whereas Gold prefers lower color temperatures around 2700Kº.  By using Solid Apollo’s Dynamic LED lighting Strips, you will be able to accommodate the required color temperature for that specific product and thanks to its CRI (Color Rendering Index) of 82+ it enhances the visual product presentation and stays true to the color.

Combination of Pure White and Warm White Light in the Kitchen

Combination of Pure White and Warm White Light in the Kitchen

While the Dynamic White is dominating the retail business, it can also serve as a home decoration such as dramatic entertainment lighting, cove lighting and accent lighting. In addition, it is also great with task lighting. For example, if you have the Dynamic White LED Strip Lights installed in your kitchen, the pure white (6K) light would be ideal to use as it will give a bright light suited for prepping meals. On the other hand, when it’s time to enjoy your meal, you can accompany that setting using a warm white (2700K) light for an ambient and relaxing atmosphere.

Each Dynamic White LED Strip Lights are16.4ft operating at 24V DC, UL Listed ensuring high level of durability & safety and backed with a 3 year warranty!

Solid Apollo LED also offers a variety of accessories compatible with the Dynamic White LED Strip Lights to fit your custom projects from LED Strip Channels, LED Dimmers and LED Transformers!

A New Controller for High Voltage Application is Here! Introducing the Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller from Solid Apollo LED

Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller

Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller

A higher voltage of the Waterproof 4 Channel DMX-RGB-W Controller is now available, introducing the Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller.

The Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller is a carbon copy of the Waterproof 4 Channel DMX-RGB-W Controller; the only difference between the two is that the Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller is used for high voltage applications and the Waterproof 4 Channel DMX-RGB-W Controller is used for low voltage applications.

For those that have not used the Waterproof 4 Channel DMX-RGB-W Controller, don’t worry! All the information that is covered on this blog post can be mostly applied for the Waterproof 4 Channel DMX-RGB-W Controller as it resembles similar functionalities.

The Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller’s exterior is fully waterproof, rated at IP67 along with its cables and connectors. Its sturdy high quality exterior can withstand the wettest locations – perfect on a patio, deck, poolside, or near a fountain.

The waterproofed cables consist of 14in LED Output cable, 19in DMX IN and OUT cables and 79in 120V AC Cord. Please note that the LED Output cable is not fully waterproofed unless you install a waterproof connector between the LED Output wire and your RGB fixture.

Solid Apollo offers an in-house installation for waterproofing your connections (please contact Solid Apollo for details). If you’d rather do-it-yourself, you would just have to install Solid Apollo’s RGB Outdoor Waterproof Connector or any waterproofing sleeve.

RGB Outdoor Waterproof Connector

RGB Outdoor Waterproof Connector

As the name states, the Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller converts DMX signals to RGB. This high voltage controller is great for 120V RGB products and works hand in hand with Solid Apollo’s RGB Neon LED Strip Lights and RGB Driverless LED Strip Lights.

Furthermore, it has a max power of 600W at 120V AC and can operate upwards of 165ft of RGB Neon LED Strips or up to 135ft of RGB Driverless LED Strip Lights on a single Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller.

Additionally, it also has a built-in overheat and over current protection that will protect the controller when the current reaches a wattage value that will cause an excessive or dangerous temperature rise in conductors.

The Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller has two primary functions: DMX Control Mode and Auto Program Mode. You can access these programs simply just by pressing and holding the first and second buttons below the digital display.

DMX Control is pretty straight-forward, once you’ve selected DMX Control Mode and connected your DMX512 Controller or your DMX capable control unit accordingly to the Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller, you will be able to control two or more Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controllers enabling them to run the same program seamlessly (Please note, in order to run the same program seamlessly on multiple Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controllers, they must all be daisy-chained to one another).

If you’re having trouble choosing the right DMX Controller, Solid Apollo offers a wide range of DMX Controllers compatible with the Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller. To name a few, DMX Controllers such as the LEDMotion 512, DMX Boss Wi-Fi Controller  and  Duet DMX & Wireless RGB-W In-Wall Controller. You can find more DMX Controllers here.

Using the RGB Driverless LED Strips with the Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller

Using the RGB Driverless LED Strips with the Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller

On a side note, one thing you might want to do first before operating in DMX Mode is to test to confirm if all systems and connections are working properly. To do this test, it is highly recommended to run the Auto Program Mode first. By doing this step first, you would precisely know if your connections are correct thus avoiding further troubleshooting down the road.

The Auto Program Mode enables the Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller to run a variety of predefined internal programs if an external DMX Control system is not available. The Programs include flashing, fading and single color selection; and within those programs the brightness levels and speed can be adjusted.

In conclusion, the Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller is a great controller, but it is better suited for applications where you intend to use a DMX application. Otherwise, revert back to your 120V RGB Controller as it offers the same functionality as the Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller’s predefined internal programs if not more.

If you have questions and concerns about the products mentioned in this blog post or want to learn more about the Waterproof 120V AC DMX-RGB Controller, visit Solid Apollo LED online at www.solidapollo.com or call 425.582.7533.

Solid Apollo LED Introduces 2 New Fantastic RGB LED Controllers; Power and Precision!

rgb-led-controller

LED Wizard RGB Manual LED Controller

If you are eager to know what I mean about power and precision. Please, allow me to introduce the powerful RGB controller – the LED Wizard RGB Manual LED Controller and the precision controller – the DuoBrite RGB+W LED Controller with RF Remote.

Let’s start with the all new redesigned LED Wizard RGB Manual LED Controller. For starters, it is packed with additional features and more power than ever before put in an RGB LED Controller.

Operating at 12 to 24V DC, each RGB (Red, Green, and Blue) channel has a maximum output of 10A (amps). That said, at 24V DC, the maximum wattage per channel is 240W and with all three channels together, it totals to an outstanding 720W (watts) !

To give you an example on what you can possibly do with 720W, you can hook up  four 3535 150W RGB LED Strips or five 5050 144W RGB LED Strips or even ten 5050 72W RGB LED Strips! The list goes on, as creative as you can be.

Please keep in mind though when attempting the examples mentioned, make sure to not exceed 720W otherwise you would damage or in most cases burn the RGB LED controller. Please be very careful and proceed with caution.

Perfect for Accent and Decorative Lighting

Perfect for  Architectural Lighting

The LED Wizard RGB Manual LED Controller is specifically designed for manual control. Within its thick aluminum matte black shell, on the front facing there are 8 individual buttons that corresponds to different functions.

These user friendly functions will allow you to shuffle through 25 unique pre-saved programs such as color jumping, fading, flashing as well as the option to choose static colors.

Furthermore, the other set of buttons will enable you to create your own atmosphere by dimming and brightening your environment with 64 different levels as well as selecting 47 speed adjustments.

Another unique feature about the Manual RGB LED controller is its three indicator lights (RGB) that light up alongside with its corresponding RGB LED Lights. When set to a static color, for example red, that red indicator light will light up and when a pre-saved mode is in play, those indicator lights will be playing in sync with the mode that is currently on. It’s also a good little trick to see if the connections are functioning correctly.

Now let’s talk about the precision controller. If you’re project requires blending, mixing, finding that exact color and going beyond the RGB+W color spectrum. If you guessed using the DuoBrite RGB+W LED Controller with RF Remote, then you’re correct.

DuoBrite RGB+W LED Controller with RF Remote

DuoBrite RGB+W LED Controller with RF Remote

The DuoBrite RGB+W LED Controller can precisely fine tune a color of your choice using the 4 individual rotary knobs on the RGB LED controller. These 4 rotary knobs control the Red, Green, Blue and White individually and also act as a dimmer for each color. Each color can be dimmed all the way Off or can be used as a mixer for each color.

For example, if you have Red and Blue all the way turned up, that color will become purple. Now if you turn the red down a notch, it will give you a different shade of that purple. The same concept goes with the rest of the colors when mixed together.

Similar to the LED Wizard RGB Manual LED Controller, the included RF Controller gives you easy access to play with the built-in modes.

These built-in modes also consist of color jumping, fading, flashing as well as the option to choose static colors. Adjusting the speed and brightness of each mode are also available with 16 levels to choose from.

Thanks to its RF (Radio Frequency) signal, the RF Remote has the ability to send a signal to your RGB LED Controller up to a maximum of 100ft with obstacles and 200ft without obstacles.

Easily Control Color Changing RGBW LED Lights

In conclusion, the LED Wizard Manual RGB LED Controller and DuoBrite RGB+W LED Controller with RF Controller have similar properties but definitely can be utilized on specific projects.

In spite of their slight differences, both are perfect for various applications such as accent and decorative lighting, buildings, decks, landscaping, game rooms, casinos, retail stores and more.

New Z-Wave LED Controllers from Solid Apollo LED

Z Wave Controller for RGB Lights

Z Wave Controller for RGB Lights

Solid Apollo LED  just introduced 2 new LED controllers based on Z-Wave technology to control Color Changing LED’s (RGB) and also a new controller for single color LED’s.

Solid Apollo’s LED Z-Wave RGB Controller will enable you to control Color Changing Lights like RGB LED Strips which can be used in your home cinema, man-cave or anywhere in your home. You can control the colors and brightness levels.

We also offer a Z-Wave LED Dimmer  for low voltage LED lights like LED strips, landscaping lights, LED Light Bars, LED Puck lights and much more!

Z-Wave is a new home automation technology which enables users to easily integrate and automate their homes by using compatible Z-Wave devices.

The great thing about Z-Wave is that it is universally compatible with many devices from different manufacturers.

Until now most home automation companies like Lutron, Crestron  and  Control4 and many others had their own systems. It was very hard to integrate devices from other manufacturers as they had their proprietary systems that are closed systems therefore making it very difficult for the normal user to integrate more things into the system. Not only that, you had to have a masters degree in programing and configuring the installation. Z-Wave eliminates all that.

Z-Wave technology was developed in order to eliminate this caveat as it works similarly to Bluetooth technology, which means that as long as manufacturers respect the communications protocol set by the Z-Wave alliance every system will be fully compatible.

Another advantage of Z-Wave technology is that each system or “Thing” as Z-Wave standards call them works as a receiver and repeater. This is very interesting as each device on the network can talk to each other and pass the signal to each other extending the range of control extensively.

Also Z-Wave-enabled devices create a mesh network between them, and it gets stronger and better the more devices you add.

What kinds of things can you do with Z Wave technology?
1. You can integrate thermostats to control Heating and cooling in your home.
2. You can control your garage doors
3. You can have humidity sensors to detect water leaks
4. You can Turn ON/OFF lights in your home and dim them
5. You can control irrigation systems to water your plants
6. You can automate everything to turn on/off based on schedules
7. You can detect when doors open or close and run a program when that happens.
8. You can control electrical outlets

So What will you need to create your very own home automation using Z Wave?:

Initially you will need a HUB. A hub is what will make everything work seamlessly. We have used in our company the Samsung SmartThings with great success. This  HUB connect to your router at home and once you do that you just download the SmartThings app.

Once that is done you can start to add devices intermediately and easily.
