1 Installation
1.1 Precautionary measures
Before the installation of LINEARlight Colormix Flex and Mechanical forces
LINEARlight Colormix Flex Protect modules, the following Avoid mechanical forces (F) on the connector (feeder) and
precautions should always be observed: the LEDs. Try to connect the connector as the last step of
the installation. A strain relief is recommended. In addition,
ESD mechanical stress must not be applied to the module itself
Be aware that the products can be damaged by electro- (e.g. no twisting or bending in excess of the allowed radius).
static discharge (ESD). Earthing is a very effective measure
to avoid the damaging effects of electrostatic discharge.
Therefore, a personal earthing system (ESD field kit) should F
be used during mounting to prevent the build-up of static
charge.

Cleaning
Depending on the surface, use a multi-purpose cleaner (e.g.
isopropyl alcohol) to provide a clean and dry mounting sur-
face which is free of oils, release coatings and dirt particles.

LF06A-P
Cutting
Ensure that the modules are cut properly at an angle of 90°
before attaching the connector.

3.1 Assembly
The following images show a LINEARlight Colormix Flex
ADVANCED module. The instruction steps, however, also
apply to a LINEARlight Colormix Flex ECO module.

3.1.1 Connection to the LED driver

Figure 1 Step 1
Observe the polarity of the module and the wires,
chronologically:

— Connect the red wire to “R“.


— Connect the green wire to “G“.
— Connect the blue wire to “B“.
— Connect the black wire to “+24 V“.

4 LINEARlight Colormix Flex Protect

4.1 Assembly
The following images show a LINEARlight Colormix Flex Notes:
Protect Advanced module. The instruction steps, however, — The minimum bending radius is 5 cm.
also apply to a LINEARlight Colormix Protect ECO module. — Pay attention to avoid highly corrosive atmospheres, e.g.
permanent high humidity or hydrogen sulfide (H2S). In
case of current LED technology, H2S causes accelerated
corrosion leading to a shortened lifetime or premature
failure. Sources for H2S may be rubber, foamed rubber,
soft-foam tapes, sealings on rubber basis, natural sources
(e.g. sulfur springs) etc. To avoid H2S from sulfur-vulcan-
ized rubber, it is necessary to switch to silicone-based
materials or rubber that is peroxide-cross-linked. Indica-
tion may be found in the material datasheet of the rubber
supplier.

4.1.1 Connection to the LED driver

Figure 12 Step 1
To ensure the correct polarity, please observe the following
when connecting the LED module (shown on the right) to the
connector (shown on the left): The cable of the connector
and the LEDs on the module must both be facing upwards
(as shown in Figure 12).

Figure 13 Step 2
Peel off the release liner from the adhesive tape at the
connecting area.
