StickVE-LED Economy Linear Lights

Hera Lighting section index

Value Engineered Miniature Linear LED Light with Integrated Connecting System

The StickVE-LED is a value engineered version of the Stick2-LED. An ultracompact strip LED light which features a high and even light output with an overlapping connecting system to avoid gaps in longer runs of light. Low energy consumption, long lifetime, and a lower price than the Stick2-LED. The StickVE is also UL EPH (NSF) approved for use in food applications.

Quick note for those replacing lights: If you have sizes that say STICKVE/34/CW or STICKVE/46/CW, the currently made lengths are 2" shorter (for many years now). Thus /32/ and /44/ are now in the part numbers.

Product Features:

  • Aluminum and Plexiglas housing
  • Extremely small dimensions: 3/8" width x 5/16" height
  • Can be recessed mounted (flush with surface) or surface mounted
  • Available in 8" (2W), 12" (3W), 32" (7.5W), and 44" (10.5W)
  • Note: if replacing existing StickVE lights, the 32" and 44" years ago did measure 34" and 46". Hera reduced the lengths.
  • Readily available in 3000K (warm white), and 4100K (cool white)
  • Also availble from 2700K to 6500K by special order, but larger minimums apply (generally hundreds of lights to order these special Kelvins)
  • Estimated 30,000 hours of useable life (Note that the Stick2-LED are rated for 50,000 hours)
  • Good CRI >80 with even light output
  • EPH certified to NSF/ANSI 2 for use in food applications
  • Integrated magnets for installing upon metal surfaces (metal that is magnetic)
  • Lights can connect end to end by overlapping, or spaced apart with connecting cables, allows for turning corners too
  • Power supply cable is 98" and ordered separately, one per run of lights, multiple runs can lead out of same power driver
  • For use with PS24V constant voltage power drivers
  • NOT Dimmable (updated 8-13-22)

Ordering Notes:
The StickVE-LED is a value engineered version of the Stick2-LED. So many of the same notes for the Stick2 will apply identically for the StickVE.

You will need to plan. The lights come in 8", 12", 32" and 44" lengths. You can connect them end to end to make longer runs, and they overlap when connected, thus giving the impression of no gap. Up to 8 feet of lights, mix and match sizes to reach that, can be powered from a single STICKVE/PC power cable. Drivers come in 6 watt, 30 watt, 75 watt, and a 96 watt. You can have multiple STICKVE/PC power cables coming out of the same driver if you need to extend lights in multiple directions, as long as you do not exceed the total wattage of the driver. Power Drivers page

Calculate the length of your run(s). When you have a long even straight line and you would like continuous light, you can create long straight strings. Use the connecting cables to go around corners, or to jump to uneven levels, or to go through light rails on adjacent cabinets.

For L or U shape kitchens, you can attempt to center your power driver and extend runs in multiple directions. This will save on needing to have multiple drivers and trying to run a 98" power cable with or without an extension lead past your light runs. The KB12LEDCC cables can be used to extend the reach of the STICKVE/PC power cable. When connecting light to light, you want to use the STICKVE/CC connecting cables.

The wattages for each light are shown above in the ordering blocks and also under Product Features. Add up the wattages of your planned interconnected lights, and then order the appropriate size power driver. You need one STICKVE/PC per run of lights, and a maximum of 8 feet per power cable. One light per run is fine if that is all you need. DRIVER > STICKVE/PC > StickVE-LED light. Sometimes you need only one light for a short area.

The StickVE-LED lights are NOT dimmable. Any of Hera's dimming accessories shown on pages we are linking to in this explanation do not work for the StickVE. The light is not designed to be dimmable.

The StickVE-LED linear lights can be used in conjunction with any of Hera's spotlight LED lights that run from the PS24V drivers. The spotlights connect into the terminal block on the driver directly. The StickVE-LED lights must use the STICKVE/PC. That power cable has the jack connection on it to connect into the driver, and then the StickVE connecting end to attach to the input end of the first light.

For Interconnecting these lights on display shelves: you can run them across shelves and at multiple levels, and have them continuously connect via connecting cables. You may need multiple drivers for larger display areas. The StickVE lights can be mounted with two-way tape or with mounting clips, or to metal surfaces with their intergrated magnets. No need to purchase separate magnetic mounting clips.

The STICK2/CP/39 is a translucent shield that you can use in recessed applications. It is 39" long, can be cut, and can be used in multiple pieces to cover longer runs. Gives a sleek look for channel recessed applications. It also hides the diode dots so if you happen to look at the lights, you won't be blinking spots for 5 minutes. Kind of resembles a fluorescent look with all the advantages of LED. It is not mandatory, it is just a design choice.

Questions generally arise with any of Hera's lights that involve multiple components. We are here to help. You are welcome to e-mail or call us.

Specs on the StickVE-LED now follow:

The StickVE-LED lights are low voltage and must run from the 24 volt constant voltage power drivers. There are several choices of drivers, the PS24V drivers are those you want to select from. StickVE lights are NOT dimmable. Since there are many accessories to choose from and they apply to many of the Hera low voltage LED lights, we show them on a page by themselves instead of making this page a lot longer. Please go to LED Power Drivers and Dimmers to make your selections to go with the lights.

The /M after the part numbers now represents integrated magnets for mounting on metal surfaces without drilling. These lights are very popular in coolers. They can just stick on to magnetic metal surfaces. They are extremely lightweight, the magnets hold.
