BRIDGE RECTIFIER ? used electronic transformers 240AC in, 65va max - 12AC out,, to power LED strip lights? Answered
Hi, I need help to understand what I would need to use a bunch of these (free) old transformers to power various 12vdc LED strip lights in my garage. I have read-up on the subject of using a bridge rectifier in each circuit to convert the AC to DC,,, BUT,, being completely useless at formula / algebra / maths, I cannot work out which bridge rectifier would work for me. I can adjust the length of LED strip to suit, but the longer - the better! The LED strips I have are 5m long, 300leds, & the specs say 5amp for the full length. So, is there a bridge rectifier available to buy, what number is it? (same if I need anything else) Please help,, and try not to baffle me with techy science. Many thanks.
