The new Pixel-Free LED On Board Eco LED Strip is an indoor grade, cost effective version of our standard Pixel-Free LED Strip. It's great for many applications due to the low price point, bright, even output and reliable light. The way this strip is made, redefines the way LED strips are manufactured, which is made similar to a newspaper press (reel to reel format). What's especially nice about this strip when working on it, is the solder pads are oversized and easy to solder to, there's no film to scrape off so it's fast to work with, fewer solder joints so there's a high reliability factor, and the fully dimmable light provides a nice, even illumination.
Why is this LED strip less expensive than others? Normal LED strips rely on relatively short circuit boards (around 0.5m - 1m) and then the joints need to be soldered together for the full strip to operate. This manual operation can lead to failures where the circuits join, increased labor cost, and greater attention to detail in QC. This strip is unique because it allows for greater yield in the manufacturing process, while cutting down on manufacturing time. It also prints the LEDs directly onto the board, as opposed to typical manufacturing process which relies on soldering each individual LED. What this means to you is you get an incredible value on an evenly illuminated LED Strip which provides great illumination, high reliability, which can be used in every project.
