ABSOLUTE SERIES LED Linear Module features 99 CRI - a near perfect achievement in color rendering. With color options of D50 (5000K) and D65 (6500K), simulating natural daylight has never been as real.

Requires 24V DC input to operate. FilmGrade power supply (PN 3092) can operate up to 14 linear modules.

Using a third-party power supply? No problem - just make sure your power supply has enough power capacity for the length of LED strip you plan on connecting.

ABSOLLUTE™ LED Linear Modules use the WAGO system, and have WAGO 2060 terminal blocks on both ends of each module. All electrical connections to power and between modules is achieved through these terminal blocks. Terminal blocks require insertion of electrical wire between 18-24 AWG, with 0.28-0.35 inches of insulation stripped off.

For gapless, linear daisy-chaining, use WAGO board-to-board links (PN WAGO 2060-901). For all other connections, use 18 AWG or thicker wire (PN 7098).

If using a PLUG based power supply such as the FilmGrade (PN 3092) power supply, use a DC female to wire adapter  (PN 7092) or DC female adapter (PN 7094).

Detailed instructions on assembly are available here.


ABSOLUTE LED strips are fully dimmable down to 0%. For an in-line PWM dimmer, see PN 3081. Wall-dimmer setups (e.g. Lutron/Leviton) will require a dimmable power supply (PN 3094). More info on LED strip dimming here.

Product Overview

Waveform Lighting's ABSOLUTE SERIES™ technology is the LED industry's first LED product to achieve 99 CRI at D50 5000K and D65 6500K. The 99 CRI rating indicates that the emitted light is quantitatively near-identical to natural daylight. This is the holy grail of lighting!

Our linear module provides 800 lumens of full-spectrum 99 CRI light that is virtually indistinguishable from natural daylight.






The LED Linear Modules can be dimmed using a PWM dimmer. Our tests using the FilmGrade Flicker Free PWM Dimmer (25 kHz) indicate that between 3% and 100%, spectral characteristics remain extremely stable. Specifically, 99 CRI is maintained, and chromaticity shift is within 1-step (MacAdam ellipse) or ΔE = 0.78. Our raw photometric measurement data in CSV format is available for download here.

Good price, good service, GREAT LIGHT!

I love painting outside in the summer, because the light is truly natural. These Absolute light strips make it impossible for me to tell the difference in my color charts. Nice work, Folks. Thanks for making my art easier.

Illuminating minerals with ABSOLUTE SERIES™ LED Linear Module - 99 CRI

I'm collecting Agates, a type of mineral which is built up by layers of different colors or color nuances, often in amazing shapes. There is one problem: In nature, they shine in bright colors. In a show-case or for photo-shooting instead, even under a CRI98 tube, the colors quickly fade to a muddy grey-in-grey or brown-in-brown. Obviously they need bright and optimal balanced(!) full spectrum light to enfold their beauty.

It was the outstanding website of Waveform Lighting, which called my interest with its detailed information all around lighting. I saw that here somebody has the courage to set the bar with CRI99 far above mainstream. I studied the information and contacted the company, whenever my knowledge was too short to understand the text correctly. The answers came quick, clear, competent, friendly and helpful. This encouraged me to take some money and order 2 modules (D50 and D65) for a test.

D65 can be compared with a spring middays light, with bright colors but without the interfering blue cast of high summer noon. D50 is a littlebit warmer, like early afternoon, not yet with a cast of yellow, but still with a clear, bright white. Most impressing was that the vivid colors not only appear in the focus of full light, but also in the shadow parts of the room. My Agates can enfold their full beauty. There is one small difference to sunlight: On a convex, polished mineral surface the sun reflects in one point. The LEDs instead reflect as a line or as a chain of points. I'm sure that most people won't remark this difference.

After the completely satisfying color check I added a simple test to detect hidden flicker: In the morning normally I pour my oat flakes under cheap LED light into a bowl. Due to the hidden flicker there is a strange stroboscope effect: I see chains of flakes as sharp objects . With the ABSOLUTE SERIES™ LED instead there is no such flicker.

Conclusion: These LEDs are absolutely outstanding!
