Climbing Light

Kingston hackSpace

By Grace Mitchell

Inspired by rock climbing equipment. The light clips inside the extrusion which is fixed to the wall. The clip can be flipped so the light can be projected upwards for ambient or downwards for a task lighting. The copper tape acts as a connector so the clip can be positioned anywhere within the extrusion.

The light uses a custom LED array that is connected to copper tape that have a power supply running along its length. The copper tape is attached connected to a low voltage power supply that is soldered to the copper tape. This in turn makes a connection with the clip and in turn lights the LED array. The casing of the extrusion is well insulated so no charge escapes along the outside of the copper tape.
