For parallel configurations

54v Drivers of any brand. Make sure your configuration is within operating specs for current, not exceeding 2100ma per strip.

2 strips in series make 54V. Then you can parallel connect as many pairs of strips from there as needs .

Example: 12 strips on a HLG480h-54b driver with a current output of 8.9amps. 2 strips in series make 54V. Wire 6 sets of “2 strips in series” in parallel to make 6 “54v strip sets”. Then connect the (+) from each of the strip set to each other and to the (+) from the driver. Then connect the (-) from each strip set all together and to the (-) of the driver. The 8.9amps will get divided over the 6 strip sets and run ~1.48a(1480ma) per strip.

*note there are 2 positive and negative connection points on each strip. Only one is needed to be used in 99% of applications. The other is there as an alternative for if needed. Again, 99% of build will not need both connection points so do not use them. If you don’t know or are unsure if you need it…you don’t need it.
