Free LED Layout Tutorial

Our partners SloanLED have recently developed a new online tool that allows you to generate your very own LED layouts in a matter of minutes!

This tool gives you the ability to produce layouts for both boxes and letters and will help narrow down the best SloanLED modules for your design, as well as providing useful information such as module count, spacings and power consumption.

You can then export your layouts to a pdf that can be given direct to your shopfloor to work from, or to the Applelec Supply team to supply and price.

This tool is completely FREE to all Applelec customers, and our LED expert Jake is offering FREE tutorials, helping you to get the most out of this valuable tool.
