This post is part of a series on the benefits of shorter cut lengths when choosing LED modules for a project. We’ll explore the perks for design, engineering, and purchasing teams.
This post’s focus is the
You can also prototype and spec with higher fidelity to your vision. Cuttability reduces the expense of custom solutions and the complication and risk of jimmy-rigged, lower resolution options. Sometimes you need to be able to design with possibilities beyond 5.5-inch segments.
Cuttable modules work well with a wide variety of fixtures. Flexible LED tapes excel in round pendants, decorative fixtures,
Reducing usage of custom boards allows designers to meet company needs for designing to UL and ETL requirements. You can use the same board for multiple fixtures and reduce the headache of new listings for custom LED boards.
As mentioned in the post on engineering benefits, there are projects that require custom boards. Tight pitch can be a limitation of cuttable boards for some applications. With pixelation as a top concern for design teams, the feasibility of a board with a small cut length will depend on the optics and goals of the fixture, but as a whole, integrating cuttable
