How do you install an LED backlit display panel system?
How do the LED backlit displays Illuminate?
After the 1/16″ tensioned mounting cables are installed, White 20 Gauge DC extension wires are connected onto the cables into small metal cylinder hardware that is placed at the bottom or top of the cables in the installation process. One is for a positive electrical current and the other is for a negative current that will run through the cables. We call these power connectors. On the back end of the thin white wires is a small round female plug that connects to a small round male plug that is attached to a 12V/60W low voltage, certified Switching, Adapter. The Adapter converts standard 120V current to a low voltage, energy efficient 12V output…it’s like battery current. The Adapter is plugged into a Surge Protector (Provided), then into an On-Off Timer (Provided) and next a standard 120V outlet. Once the Adapter is plugged in, a low voltage, harmless, current will run through the cables to the positive and negative terminal that is inside side connecting clamps that are on the display panel, thus providing the power for the LED’s to illuminate. No hard-wiring.
