    These are the directions----

    The diagram shows how each branch has LEDs connected in series and parallel with opposite polarities. Here one series of 25 LEDs (@120 V) remains illuminated during one half cycle of the AC mains input while the other 25 sets of LEDs which are connected with reverse polarity switches with the other opposite half cycle of the AC mains.

    How do you reverse polarity when you have two rows of 25 LEDS wired in series and the two rows connected and ran parallel with 6 other units.

    Here is link <SNIP>

    Thanks

    You don't do anything to reverse polarity, the line AC automatically does that 50/60 cycles per second. That's why it's called Alternating Current.
