Trulux LED Tape Light Layout Examples

The Trulux LED tape light system from American Lighting is a revolutionary top-to-bottom architectural LED accent lighting solution. With a variety of color options and application targets, it can fit nearly any project. But with all the different options available, making sure you get all the correct components necessary for your project can be a bit overwhelming.

Let's take a look at some of the major different lighting setups and which products should go with each setup. Use the numbered diagrams to reference the different components of a Trulux LED Tape Light system:

  1. The Controller: Performs dimming and/or color control operations.
  2. The Driver: Provides power to the tape light. Driver wattage should be sized according to length of attached run(s).
  3. The Receiver: Receives the wireless signal from the controller.
  4. The Tape Light: White, adjustable color temperature white, or color-changing light source.


Note: This article does not address DMX layouts, which can be more complicated. Please contact us for assistance with a DMX lighting system.
