Installing in-lite in 5 steps
The 12 volt cable
The low-voltage cable transports power and lights up the fixtures. Always create a cable plan before starting installation activities.
Roll out the cable (linear cable plan)
It is easy to place the in-lite cable: you simply roll out the cable from the transformer, and stop anywhere you like. If possible, place the cable next to paving and borders so it remains easy to access. Always take into account the recommended maximum cable length between the transformer and the end of the cable. You can travel 40 metres with the 14/2 cable and 80 metres with the thicker 10/2 cable. Cable caps allow you to neatly protect the end of the cable; they are delivered with each transformer.
Creating junctions (split cable plan)
The cable can also be split using cable connectors (CC-2), which make it easier to access the various fixtures. The same maximum cable distances apply once again (calculated between transformer and end of cable).
Cable length for fixtures
Our fixtures have a standard cable length of around 60 cm (differing cable lengths have been mentioned next to the product on the website). An extension cable can be used to install a fixture further away from the main cable. This is useful when installing high fixtures or integrating Ø22 mm ground spots into a patio (otherwise the Easy-Lock cannot be reached).
in-lite uses high quality cables for its 12 volt system. It is important to prevent power losses (voltage drop) over long distances and to make sure the cable can withstand external influences. The guarantee will expire if you connect in-lite fixtures to cables by another manufacturer.
