Product Description

Details

The Kling-Force LED has 8 outputs and supports the most popular LED strips on the market. It distributes up to 40 Amp of power to those LED strips.


The power supply is external, so that the user can choose 5 or 12V based on his installation. At 5V power can reach 200 W and at 12V it can reach 480 W. The interface distributes the power without converting it, otherwise it would dissipate too much heat. The output voltage must always match the input voltage, as the interface will not convert between 12V and 5V.


The interface also provides some electronic surge protection that will cut if the output drains too much power or if there is a faulty wiring such as a short circuit. The interface will also detect when the conditions are back to normal and will start powering again the LEDs automatically.


Kling-Force has 2 Ethernet connections to daisy-chain multiple Kling-Force interfaces.


Kling-Force LED can power up to 1600 (8×200) LEDs or drive up to 4800 (8×600) LEDs if strips are directly powered. Each output is limited to 5 Amp, so the number of LEDs depend on the LED strip specification.


Most popular LEDs are supported, both 5V and 12V, and both 3 or 4 wires. (see specifications for more details)


There is no display and or buttons on the interface because it’s based on Kling-Net. It can be configured from the Kling-Net Mapper.


Each output with a non-zero length will appear as a device in the Kling-Net Mapper. Each output can have a different length to offer maximum flexibility.
