A few things I'm not sure about...
The light output is quoted in lumens per metre, but how many do I need? I've seen outputs from 290 to 780 lm/m for 12V systems and up to 1200 lm/m for 24V. The tapes will be 45cm above a dark textured work surface. I suppose you can put 2 tapes side-by-side for a higher output.
The kitchen layout is U-shaped with the sink in front of a window with cabinet runs either side. At each side of the sink the runs are finished off with a little angled/corner shelf unit at right angles to the main run. I'd like to run the last bit of tape around this corner if possible. Is it possible to twist it through 45 degrees or will a I have to cut it and use a wired connector?
Can I just stick the bare tape to the underside of the cabinets or does it need to be mounted into a holder such as RS Stock No. 797-2432, a horrendously expensive product!
Then there's colour temperature. My fluorescents are 2700K but a lot of the white LEDs seem to be 3000+. I don't suppose that's a big deal in this application.
What about drivers. I assume I'll just need a couple of basic 12V drivers, one each side of the sink - though the hob interrupts the run on the right, so I'll either have to route some cable round that of use a 3rd driver for the last cabinet which will only has a 55cm LED run. I have easy access to the 240VAC that's feeding the 6 existing tubes. Something like a couple of RS number 773-6949 drivers giving 1 amp each?
Any advice much appreciated, and any recommended suppliers/brands.
