Hello fellow DIY'ers! I am going to build a string of leds and im somewhat of a noob when it comes to electrical work...

Im going to be using the lighting for agriculture, and I found these high power Cree LED's that look like they could do the trick

my question is how would I go about getting the whole thing set up? Someone posted a link in the review area that says this can handle 10 of them (link below)

Are those 2 parts all I need to get it running? I have an old power chord that i can cut up and connect to the 2nd part to give it the edison plug (will that work?)

Thanks guys, im sorry if this is hard to understand because I dont know much and I am having a hard time explaining it. I hope you understand what I meant.

Cheers! :thumbup:

The LED driver can only handle 1 or two LEDs, you would also need a step down transformer of a DC power supply. You can not connect the LED direct to 120 VAC.

Thanks for the heads up hayewe farm!

What type of step down transformer of a DC power supply would I need? Also someone on the review area mentioned tat driver could handle a string of 10, they could be wrong though. What do I look for in a LED driver in terms of being able to handle more lights on the string?

Thanks, -Harbringer

The LED array operates on 1.9 to 2.2 volts DC.
the driver requires 12 to 16 volt input AC or DC the wright up says it will handle current for 3 LEDS
