Product Description

For commercial and industrial applications where color accuracy and judgment are of utmost importance, higher color temperatures that closely simulate natural lighting conditions are needed. For retail applications, ultra high CRI in a neutral and comfortable 4000K provides an extra level of vivid color that makes merchandise pop and brings out their true colors.
Waveform Lighting's ultra high CRI technology is now available as LED strips, in 4000K and 5000K, both with 95 CRI and R9 > 90.

Power Requirements

This LED strip product requires a DC 24V power source to operate. We recommend a minimum power supply capacity of 96W when operating the entire 16 ft reel. Learn more about calculating power supply requirements here.

This LED strip can be dimmed via a traditional wall-dimmer (e.g. Lutron/Leviton) or an inline dimmer (e.g. PWM FilmGrade dimmer). Use a dimmable power supply (PN 3096) when connecting to a traditional wall-dimmer system and a standard power supply (PN 3092) when using an inline dimmer.

Pricing & Ordering Information

Listed pricing is per one reel (16.4 ft / 5 meters). Please see below for part numbers and corresponding specifications.

Our CENTRIC DAYLIGHT™ bulbs are offered in a range of color temperatures. 4000K provides a warmer, softer white that matches the shade of morning sunshine. 5000K has a more balanced, noon sunlight color, while 6500K provides a crisp, high-energy light similar to what you would see from a north-facing window.

All color options provide 95 CRI, full spectrum light that very closely matches natural light.


Some LED lights will produce rapid flicker or pulses that aren't immediately visible to the naked eye, which can cause headaches, nausea and eye strain. Our CENTRIC SERIES™ products include additional electrical circuitry to achieve a truly flicker-free light output that produces a comfortable and stable light level. Learn more about flicker here, or watch our video demonstration below.

NOTE: These LED strip lights must be paired with a flicker-free power supply to ensure that the light output remains flicker-free.

Flicker-Free Demonstration Video


Don't let poor lighting conditions take away from professional and commercial success. For visually-oriented tasks and activities, higher color temperatures that more closely mimic natural light are important. High color rendering quality ensures that objects appear accurate and natural.


Pre-applied 3M VHB double-sided tape on the back side allows for simple but reliable installation. Peel back the liner and apply to virtually any surface. Architectural-grade adhesive ensures your LED strips stay in place.


These LED strips can be cut to length in 2 inch intervals using just a pair of scissors.

Now you can install lighting to fit the exact length of any cabinet or interior feature. No more dark spots or uneven lighting!


Conveniently rejoin cut LED segments using our PN 3071 solderless connectors. The connector cable is flexible, so you can also turn corners or change the direction of your LED strip run.


Aluminum channels, while optional, are great way to house and mount LED strip lights. Particularly for applications where the LED strip light is exposed, the aluminum channel and included diffuser can improve overall aesthetics and help disperse the light more effectively to eliminate glare.

Frequently Asked Questions About this Product


What type of power supply do I need?

This LED strip product requires a DC 24V power supply to operate. For most residential and commercial installations, this means that the AC 120V (North America) or AC 240V (Europe) needs to be converted via a power supply unit.

When choosing a power supply unit, you must ensure that the output voltage matches the LED strip voltage (i.e. DC 24V), and that the power supply capacity is sufficient to operate the length of LED strip.

The power supply capacity needed is determined by the total length of LED strip connected. Each 1 foot section consumes 5.5 watts of power - so, for example, a 10 foot section will consume 55 watts of power, and we would therefore recommend a minimum power capacity of 55 watts.

Typically, however, it is a good idea not to run a power supply at its maximum capacity. We recommend providing an extra 5-15% of "headroom" above the actual LED strip power consumption.

How do I connect this product to a power supply?

Each reel of LED strip includes wire cables pre-mounted on both ends. The cables are 16 AWG and are 13.7 inches in length, with insulation trimmed & tinned at the ends.

For hard-wired application, simply use twist-on wire connectors ("wire nuts") to connect the positive and ground wires to the corresponding DC output wires of the power supply unit.

If using a power supply with a DC plug output, use an adapter such as PN 7094 to convert the DC plug to wire receptacles.

What is the maximum run length of this LED strip light?

The maximum run length is 32.8 ft (two reels). The maximum run length represents the longest permitted length of LED strip that can be connected as a single consecutive run to a power supply.

Do these LED strip lights require heatsinking?

Because the premium LEDs on this product are under-driven below their rated capacity, these LED strips can be operated without any heatsinking or additional thermal management.

Temperature rise of the LED strips is typically 50 degrees Fahrenheit (20 degrees Celsius) over ambient.

Do these lights emit any UV radiation?

These lights do not emit any ultraviolet radiation. The light output covers the entire visible spectrum between 420 nanometers and 800 nanometers, but does not go below (UV-A) or above (infrared).

Pretty awesome

Well I've not gotten the fully test these yet they look good with a bench test. And while they are a bit on the more expensive side, there's not really any other equivalent option with this kind of light quality. Take my advice, if you're going to do it, spend the money and do it right with quality light

Excellent lighting

We purchased these strip lights 4000K option and are very impressed with the brightness and the no-flicker dimming. The surprise was the effect of the CRI - without a doubt this makes a definite difference. We are very happy with the purchase and are planning on using this throughout our facility.

Nice Improvement Over Fluorescent UCL's

The channel, diffuser, and LED strip are a nice improvement over my older T5 fluorescent linkable under cabinet fixtures.
I appreciate the compactness, uninterrupted linear illumination, and color. The screws that come with the clips are too long for use in 3/4" thick cabinets, the heads are too large to allow the clip to properly engage the aluminum channel, so I use #4 x 5/8" flat head philips sheet metal screws instead.

One improvement that I would appreciate is a cleaner means to conceal the termination between the leads of the LED strip, and the plug adapter for the power supply.

Last, I wish that Waveform would offer PAR 38 LED lamps in all possible combinations of color temperature, lumens, and beam angle.
Do you know how hard it is to find good quality 5000K narrow spot lamps?

Excellent Product

Purchased the Centric Daylight 5000K LED strips for ledge lighting in room with very little window exposure. Made the room very bright and eliminated that "cave" feel. Very happy with the purchase.
