The induction switch works by detecting changes in the magnetic field around the light fixture. When a person or object comes close to the light, the magnetic field is disrupted, and the induction switch senses the change. This triggers the light to turn on. When the person or object moves away, the magnetic field returns to its normal state, and the induction switch senses the change once again, turning the light off.
The strip light itself contains a series of LED lights that provide the illumination. These lights are powered by an electrical current that is generated by an electromagnetic field that is created within the fixture. This electromagnetic field is created by a coil of wire that is located within the fixture. When an alternating current is passed through the coil, it generates the electromagnetic field, which in turn powers the LED lights.
