QolorFLEX® LED Tape

Share this page:


LED tape is a revolutionary product, allowing lighting users to put light in places that were impossible in the past and to create lighting fixtures and lighting effects in new and inexpensive ways. It is disruptive technology at its best.

Our QolorFLEX® LED tape is manufactured to City Theatrical’s exact specifications for professional use in Theatrical, Film, and Video applications. QolorFLEX®  LED tape is available in a variety of types such as single colour, RGB, RGBA, and RGBW. The types are constantly evolving, so check our website regularly for new additions. It has an adhesive applied to the back side to allow peel-and-stick mounting. It is available in 5
meter (16.4 ft.) spools or cut-to-order lengths.

CTI can also manufacture custom LED configurations on our in-house surface mount line to suit your exact specifications.

Ordering Information:

Each type of QolorFLEX LED Light Strip is identified by a part number which consists of 7 sets of characters. Each character set specifies a particular attribute of the tape. Please refer to the Part Number Key to confirm you order the product needed. For a brief description of the different tape attributes, refer to the TERMINOLOGY section below. 

                               

LED SIZE                      
Refers to the actual chip size of the LED. In general, larger the chip size, the more light  output is possible. Single color QolorFLEX LED Tape is available in 2 chips: 5050 (.50mm x .50mm) and 3258 (.35mm x .28mm). Multicolor QolorFLEX types (RGB, RGBA, RGBCW, RGBNW, RGBWW, RGBI) all use the 5050 chip. Our Adjustable White (WWCW) uses the 3528 chip size.

OPERATING VOLTAGE
QolorFLEX is available in both 12 and 24 Volt configurations. 24 Volt strip allows for longer continuous runs and requires half the amperage of 12 Volt strip to operate.

LED COLOR
QolorFLEX is available in a variety of different colors and combinations of colors. Single color white stripes are available in cool (CW), natural (NW), and warm (WW) color temperatures. Adjustable white (WWCW) has a combination of alternating cool and warm white chips which can be controlled to achieve a specific color temperature according to preference. Multicolor strips consist of RGB tricolor LEDs plus a fourth color (amber, cool, white, natural white, warm white, indigo) LED, which enables the mixed color output to be tuned and or balanced as needed. 

 

QTY LED'S PER METER                   
This is the number of LEDs contained in a meter of tape. More LEDs produce more light output. 

LENGTH 
QolorFLEX is most commonly sold in full reels which contain 5 meters (16.4ft) of product. Each end of the strip sold this way has a soldered pigtail of color coded ribbon cable for attaching to dimming / power devices. For custom lengths less then 5 meters, "CTL" should be substituted when ordering, and the desired pigtail configuration discussed with our sales department as is needed. For an 18" sample length without pigtails use "0" as the length designation. Please contact your nearest dealer to help with custom quotes. 

IP RATING 
Indicates the approved use environment. IP 20 is Approved for indoor use only, IP 67 is Suitable for outdoor use.  

TAPE COLOR 
Currently, all QolorFLEX Tape is available with a white (1) background color as a standard product.

If a background color other than white is required, contact our sales department for custom pricing and lead times.
