REQUIRED 24V TRANSFORMER
One 24-volt electronic transformer is required for each continuous run. Compatible hardwire and plug-in transformers are available. Be sure to select a transformer whose wattage rating is equal to or slightly greater than the total wattage of the run being powered.
- Calculating Total Wattage of Run: to determine the transformer you need, calculate the total wattage rating of your run by adding the total wattage of the system you intend to power. For example, for a run of (3) 7.25in Straight Edge Lights and (3) 13.25in Straight Edge Lights, you will need a transformer rated for at least 24 watts. (3 7.25in Straight Edge Fixtures x 3W/Fixture + 3 13.25in Straight Edge Fixtures x 5W/Fixture = 24W)
- Plug-In: choose from 60- or 96-watt models
- Hardwire: for 120V applications, choose from 60- or 96-watt models. For 277-volt applications, a 100-watt transformer is available.
All of these Accessories are ordered separately.
- Joiner Cable: available in 4 lengths: 6in, 12in, 24in, and 36in. This joiner cable can be used to electrically link 2 fixtures together across a short distance or around corners. Each end has a male connector. To create a custom joiner cable longer than 36in, you will also need custom cable extender(s).
- Custom Cable Extender: connects two joiner cables to create custom lengths. This cable extender has two female ends.
- Splitter Cable: allows an easily customizable design layout. Available in either a 3-way "Y" connector with three male connectors, or a 4-way "X" connector with four male connectors. Splitter cables can connect to joiner cables with use of a custom cable extender.
- Adjustable Angle Mounting Clips: used to mount Straight Edge light fixtures. Allows fixture to be easily aimed while securely mounted for optimal task lighting performance and flexibility. Each package includes two metal clips.
- 3-Foot Magnetic Tape: easily mount Straight Edge light fixtures to any magnetic surface. This tape has a magnetic strip on one side and a peel and stick surface on the other side. It is easily cut to length in the field.
- Wire Clips: used to tack power cords or joiner cables neatly to a surface. Each pack consists of 10 clips.
- Multiple Terminal Block: easily wire multiple output connections for a neat installation without the use of open splices. This terminal block has one power supply input and either 6 or 8 outputs.
- Wiring Box with Switch: allows for an aesthetically pleasing installation by eliminating visible wire when spanning a large gap in a system layout. Includes an optional on/off switch to control power to light fixtures when a wall switch is not available.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
Nice lights, a little pricey
February 16, 2014
I've had this lighting system installed under my cabinets for about a month. The lights are great. They are bright, carry a low profile and work as described. I have not attached them to a dimmer so I cannot comment on that aspect but overall I am very happy. My only complaint is that they are expensive. Only time will tell if I got what I paid for.
Pros:Bright, low profile, many options.

Would this kind of lighting be appropriate (provide enough light) for a walk-in closet? If so, which wattage would be best?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on May 31, 2013
Yes, it would work well for closet application. I would suggest picking the longest length that fills up the space you are wanting to illuminate. That way you have even lighting.
