I am upgrading from a PALPX light. Do I need to change the 12V driver or can I use the existing 12V driver? If anything the old driver would be over sized.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on June 11, 2013
Thanks for the question.
The PALPX puck lights use a low voltage transformer. This is NOT interchangeable with a constant voltage driver, such as the ones these LED puck lights require. So, yes, you will need to change to a driver.

Can these lights be on top of a cabinet pointed up?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on January 27, 2014
Answer:No, we would not recommend it. The lights are designed to point down. Heat dissipation will not work correctly and the life of the product will be reduced.

Can these be installed with a dimmer switch?
By Chris from Pegasus Lighting on June 30, 2014
These LED puck lights are dimmable as long as you also use an electronic dimmable driver to power the lights, like the 25-Watt 12-Volt DC Dimmable Electronic Hardwire Constant Voltage LED Driver shown in the Accessories section of this product.

Can I link 9 lights together?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on March 19, 2014
Answer:Mike, the puck lights all wire to the remote LED driver. The puck lights cannot be linked to each other.
You certainly can connect 9 puck lights to a single driver.
By Russell from Arnaudville, LA on March 19, 2014
Answer:You can link as many as you like as long as you don't exceed the total wattage of your LED driver's output load. It is a good idea to have a little bit bigger of a driver than your actual wattage needs so that you don't overload the driver. These are great little pucks. And they are dimmable.
By Adam from Ohio on March 19, 2014
Answer:These fixtures require 1.5W of power to them so you would need a LED driver that is 13.5W or greater. They also home-run to the driver instead of daisy-chain. If you install 9 then you'll want to use the large terminal block, maybe a couple, to group the fixtures together and make the install easier.
By Dan from Tulsa, OK on March 19, 2014
Answer:Yes. You must have a 20 watt 12-volt LED driver to hook all 9 lights together. At 1.5 watts each it is a total of 15 watts and a 20w driver will work. The available drivers will show in the right-hand column on the puck light page.

Answer:I have 12 in my kitchen. due to cabinet spacing i am using 2 under each cabinet. i ran wires from each pair to a junction box then ran 1 set to the transformer. then 1 pair back up to the dimmer switch so yes 12 all together.

Initially installed three under counter 12v 20 watt dimmerable Puck lights. Power from step down transformer. Have lost two of three units because replacement 12v bulbs fail to make good contact with receptacle when installed. Rather than rewire with 110v, wish to replace the units. Seems 110v Xenon and LED units have replaced the 12v 20W replacement products. Rewiring estimates around $300. Recommendations?
By Ila from Pegasus Lighting on July 3, 2014
Answer:Standard low voltage puck lights remain very popular. However, LED puck lights are a good replacement. My suggestion is that if your existing puck lights are recessed mounted and you are entertaining the thought of using LED puck lights for replacement, then choose an LED puck that will require the same hole cut out dimension as the original.
Please note that LED Puck Lights also require a power supply (driver) and not a typical transformer used for low voltage lighting.

I plan to mount two on my garage ceiling, can these be used for wood carving? Will they be bright enough?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on April 30, 2014
Answer:Ken, I would not recommend them for a ceiling lights application. These are designed for under cabinet installations.
By Adam from Ohio on April 30, 2014
Answer:These are considered task lights. So they are not meant to throw a lot of light from a far distance. The best output would be around 18"-24" from the work surface.
By Rose from Chicago, IL on April 30, 2014
Answer:No not bright enough for that. These are for under a cabinet NOT a ceiling.
By Alex from Charleston, SC on April 30, 2014
Answer:I think this might be a little less light then you would want for wood carving, but it would really depend on the distance from the ceiling of your garage to your workstation. I have 4 that are used as under cabinet lighting the kitchen and there is about 2 feet from where they are mounted to the counter top. This provides me with enough light even when they are the only lights on, but if they were say 4, 5, or even more feet away from the surface I don't think it would be enough light.

We are thinking about installing these in our glass front cubbies. We would need 18 of them and would like to hard wire them. What all would we need to do this installation?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on May 5, 2014
Since you will be installing 18 you will probably need to use at least two drivers. The total wattage is 27W, and the largest driver available can handle 25W.
Please see the accessories for the compatible drivers.
