12 VOLT GARDEN LIGHTS
ACCEPTABLE VOLTAGE DROP CALCULATIONS
RUN LENGTH AND TRANSFORMER SELECTIONS
Maximum recommended cable length from transformer to last fitting without a noticeable reduction in light output.
IMPORTANT: The wattage stated on the transformer must not be exceeded!
POSSIBLE WIRING CONFIGURATIONS FOR A SINGLE CABLE SYSTEM
The IN-LINE SYSTEM is the conventional way of connecting the light fittings together but can be restrictive in the length of cable that is used due to the effects voltage drop on the light fitting furthest away from the transformer.
The TEE-LINE SYSTEM is a method employed to counteract the effects of voltage drop. By connecting the transformer in the middle of the circuit you are able to increase the length of the cable run and minimise the effects of voltage drop on the end light fittings.
