For both top rail lighting and lighted post caps

GFI

Example

Transformer

The transformer provided should not deliver more than 80% of its rated wattage. 80% of 200 Watt = 160 Watts max.

6 FT LED Strip (x8) Junction Box

Calculate the total wattage of your layout using the following values. Villa Post Cap draws 0.53 watts, Island Post Cap draws 2.2, LED strip draws 1.5 watts foot. 80% of 200 Watt = 160 Watts max and 80% of 35 Watt = 28 Watts.

6 FT Rail with Light (x8)

Example: 10 Villa Post Caps and x feet of rail desired. 10 x 0.53= 5.3 Watts 160 Watts-5.3= 154.7 watts available for LED Strip. 154.7 ÷ 1.5 = 103 feet potential lighted rail.

12 Gauge Wire

NOTE: Each 12Ga Power line can drive no more than 24’ of chained LED strips (four 6’ or three 8’ segments)

No lighted rail in this area
