Highly efficient LED SmartStrip™ provides direct and indirect lighting for
signage, point of sale, under cabinet, and accent lighting. SmartStrip also has
significant potential in many areas such as illumination for cold refrigeration,
in-store fixtures, and wall washes and skirt lighting for architectural
applications. With a wide range of colors and beam angles, all of which
can be configured into longer lengths, M2 Lighting Solutions delivers easily
customized lighting to enhance your image.
Developed for internally illuminated signs as an alternative to fluorescent lighting,
SmartStrips are the designers choice by combining low power, high brightness,
“green technology,” and cost-effective 5mm LED technology.
SmartStrip offers a number of key properties and advantages:
used with low-voltage, off-the-shelf power supplies.
• With minimum voltage dropped across the onboard resistors, SmartStrip stays
cool to the touch.
ballasts and expensive installation requiring conduit and electrical contractors.
• Low color temperatures are available:
3,000-3,500 K for incadecent yellow appearance
3,500-4,500 K for medium white
4,500-5,500 K forr cool white for best color rendering
in clear, round, acrylic tube assemblies. The round tube enables position adjustments to aim the light, especially useful when narrow beam LEDs are intended for wall washing.

• When connecting SmartStrip end to end, the effect is to put them in parallel. Wiring in series is possible, which allows use of 24VDC power.
• Please consult the Applications Engineering Department for ideas to enhance your lighting project.

1.Thoroughly clean the box with denatured alcohol or a similar cleaner. Allow to dry.
2.Peel the release liner off of the LED SmartStrip and
adhere to the returns according to the project
specifications. SmartStrip should be positioned toward the rear of the box. See figure A bellow.
Adhere right-angle mounting clips as needed for tight bends.
Optimum illumination requires population around the perimeter near the back panel. As the depth of return becomes greater, the placement becomes less critical (minimum return depth - 3 inches). See figure C
to the right.

3.Make necessary jumps as needed. Crimps or wire nuts should be used for connecting letters and power supplies. See figure B to the right.
Note: Black to black wire should always be
connected; match colored wires appropriately.
See figure B to the right.
Note: Use silicone connectors in high humidity
or coastal environments.
4.Drill secondary wire holes as needed.
5.Wire in the secondary power supply voltage.
6.Test light the SmartStrip, and repeat steps
2-5 for each.
