About our Xenon Low Voltage Puck Light Kits
Description

Xenon low voltage (12 volts) puck light kits are low profile, dimmable, and are great to use as task or decorative lighting. Use them as under cabinet lights in the kitchen, lighting display cases, illuminating inside cabinets, and they are great for our commercial customers as well for merchandising displays, office and medical work stations, showcase lighting, and bars. Finally, our puck lights can be hardwired to power or used with a plug-in transformer.

LIGHT FIXTURE

  • Low Profile: if the xenon puck light is surface mounted, it has a total depth of 1-7/16 inches with a round face that measures 2-9/16 inches in diameter. If the xenon puck light is recessed mounted, it needs a circular hole that is about 5/8in deep and 2-1/8 inches in diameter. When it is recessed only about 1/2 inch of trim will show.
  • Versatile Mounting: the xenon low voltage puck light can be either surface mounted or recessed mounted
  • Cool Housing: heat-resistant plastic frame is designed for thorough airflow ventilation with a frosted glass lens
  • 2 Finishes: white or black
  • Even Light Distribution: frosted glass diffuser for even light distribution (Because xenon lamps are much cooler than halogen lamps the lens does NOT have to be made of tempered glass.)
  • Cooler Than Halogen: xenon light bulbs give off much less heat than comparable halogen light bulbs
  • Intended to Shine Down: has been designed to be used so that the light is directed downward. If the Puck Light is installed so that it is facing upward, too much heat may be trapped inside the fixture.

LIGHT BULB

  • Xenon Light Bulb Is Included: a 20-watt, 12-volt, xenon bipin light bulb with a G4 base and an MOL (maximum overall length) of 1-1/16in is supplied with puck light. [Caution: Xenon bipin lamps that are longer than 1-1/16in from tip to tip will not fit into this puck light.]
  • Good Amount of Light: 225 lumens; approximately equal to that of a 25W standard incandescent light bulb
  • Color Rendering Index: CRI is 100 for all xenon lamps (100 is considered to be the best)
  • Color Temperature: color temperature of 3000K (warm appearance, very slightly cooler in appearance than a standard clear incandescent light bulb)
  • Good Lamp Life: rated life is 10,000 hours on average (In contrast, a 20-watt, bipin halogen lamp is generally rated at about 2,500 hours.)
  • Easy Lamp Handling: unlike a halogen light bulb the glass envelope of a xenon light bulb may be touched with bare hands (while the lamp is cool) without causing the lamp to fail prematurely

ELECTRICAL FEATURES

  • Long Electrical Leads: each xenon puck light has a pair of 48in electrical lead wires which, of course, may be shortened “in the field” if necessary. If more wire is needed, please note that the plug-in transformers have leads that are 22in long. For best results we recommend that you not try to put a puck light any further than 6 feet from the electronic transformer.
  • Quiet Electronic Transformers: xenon low voltage puck lights need a 12-volt transformer to operate properly. Depending on the situation one of the following transformers may be selected
    1) a 60-watt plug-in electronic transformer (1.25inH x 1.75inW x 4inL)
    2) a 60-watt hard-wire electronic transformer (0.75inH x 1.25inW x 2-1/8inL)
  • Plug-In Transformer: has one pair of leads that are 22 inches long which are connected (hardwired with a terminal block) to the xenon puck lights, an 8ft cord with a 2-prong polarized plug and an on/off in-line roller switch located about 12in from the polarized plug. Since this transformer is simply plugged into the nearest electrical outlet it provides ease of installation.
  • Hard-Wire Transformer: has four leads, two of which are connected (hardwired with wire nuts) to power and two of which are connected (hardwired with wire nuts) to the xenon puck lights. This transformer must be secured in a junction box along with its electrical connections. This transformer allows the xenon puck lights to be controlled by a wall switch or dimmer.
  • UL Listed: UL and C-UL listed

INSTALLATION

  • Easy to Install: please refer to these Installation Instructions (PDF). Always check local electrical codes and the National Electrical Code (NEC) before installing any lighting products. It is also wise to consult with a licensed electrician in your geographical area about any electrical details that you might have questions about and to make certain that you are satisfying all of the appropriate electrical codes.
  • Cautions: these xenon puck lights are not intended to be installed with the light pointing upward; they are not intended to be installed in ceilings or soffits; they are not intended for lighting aquariums; and they are not intended to be installed in plastic cabinets; they should not be located closer than 2in from a cabinet wall or in a compartment smaller than 12in by 12in by 12in (one cubic foot) for each light fixture (For example, 3 light fixtures require a minimum of 3 cubic feet of enclosed space.)

SELECTION QUESTIONS

  • 3 Selection Questions: when selecting the Xenon Puck Light Kit that is right for your situation it is important to answer these 3 questions

    Q) How many puck lights do I need?  
    A) 1, 2, or 3 

    Q) What finish do I want on the puck lights 
    A) White or Black

    Q) Do I want to control the puck lights with a wall light switch or dimmer?
    A) If the answer is "yes", then please select a hard-wire transformer, not a plug-in transformer. However, if the answer is "no", then select a plug-in transformer.

Specifications & Measurements

When determining how many Xenon Low Voltage Puck Lights you will need for under cabinet lighting you first will have to measure the space where the fixtures will be attached. To do this you should NOT measure the face of the cabinets; you should measure the "cavity" under the cabinet where the fixtures will actually be placed. We recommend that you then refer to the following table when determining how many Puck Lights you will need. From the range given below select the number of fixtures that seems right for your situation.

Under Cabinet Measurement Xenon Low Voltage Puck Lights
6in - 10in
1 Puck Light
11in - 18in 2-3 Puck Lights
19in - 26in 3-4 Puck Lights
27in - 34in 4-5 Puck Lights
35in - 42in 5-7 Puck Lights
43in - 50in 6-8 Puck Lights

Fantastic lights regardless of price
July 26, 2012
I initially went to a local lighting center to price under cabinet lighting. They were trying to direct me to more expensive lighting and were trying to sell me on the fact that puck lighting is not the way to go. After completing extensive research I arrived at this lighting set. To say they are absolutely perfect for my kitchen cabinets is an understatement. I could not be happier with how they look. I had the hard wiring placed when I had the new cabinets installed. I am a novice and was able to connect these lights. I would recommend this set to anyone who is looking to hard wire under cabinet lights.
Pros:
bright good instructions great price

Not long lasting
March 10, 2014
I bought 7 puck lights less than a year ago and 1bulb has burned out and 1(out of 5) transformers died on me. I called customer service and was told I only had a 30 day warranty and my electrician should check his wiring job. He did and it is the transformer. I'm concerned about the other 4 now. I need to order more bulbs and a new transformer. They are cute lights but do burn hot.

Good Quality - Easy Install
January 30, 2014
Shipment was timely and the items were as ordered. Installation was easy/ The screw provided bit in to the cabinet surface with no pre drilling. The lights disappear under the cabinets and the lighting even and great color.
Pros:
Easy Install. Wiring posts that come with the transformer made hook up a breeze.

Puck light install as advertised
June 29, 2013
Just installed so not sure of longevity. Installation was pretty straight forward. One drawback was transformer having exposed leads. I had to rig an enclosure to have high voltage splices not in the free air. Other than that, the kit was complete.

Questions & Answers
By hoanh tran from San Diego CA on July 27, 2012
I want to install 5 of these "Xenon Low Voltage Puck Lights" inside my 5 cabinets (24" apart). Few questions:
1. I want to install a wall switch and a dimmer. Is that doable for these lights?
2. I'm redoing my kitchen and have direct access to the electrical wire. What parts do I need to purchase from you besides the 5 lights?
3. What transformers do I need (60W)?
4. Can these lights be linked together?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on July 27, 2012

Answer:
Thanks for your question.
1. Yes, they can be connected to a dimmer. We have high quality compatible dimmers on the accessories tab.
2. We offer these puck lights as complete kits. You'll want to select a 2-puck light kit & a 3-puck light kit.
3. You will need 2 transformers to power all 5 puck lights. They will be included with the kits. Since you want to connect to a dimmer & wall switch, you will want to select the hardwire transformer.
4. No, the puck lights are not linked together. Instead, they each connect to the transformer, which in turn connects to the dimmer.
By Scott from VA on July 27, 2012

Answer:
(1) I doubt that a dimmer would work well with these. Wall switch should be fine.
(2) I did the same and needed only extra wire.
(3) I used only the transformers that were sold alongside the lights.
(4) There is a limit. Can't remember.
By Uma from Loveland, OH on July 27, 2012

Answer:
I was able to install 6 of these - 2 each in my 42'' glass cabinets. The electrician hooked all of them to one switch and 1 dimmer. One cabinet is on the island and the other two are on either side of the sink. So fairly apart. If I remember right, I did buy transformers. They recommend those.

By Jason from Philly on July 6, 2013
If I am installing one light inside a cabinet, would there be a heat issue? I know these are low voltage, but Xenon bulbs still throw off some heat.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on July 8, 2013

Answer:
Like all incandescent sources, xenon light bulbs do emit heat. Xenon is normally the coolest of incandescent sources, which is why it's ideal for puck lights and under cabinet lights. As long as your puck light has about a cubic foot of space around it, heat should not be an issue.

By Nunda from nunda.riengchan@gmail.com on August 20, 2012
I have 3 cabinets. Two of them are together on the right of range hood. One cabinet is on the left of range hood. I want to install 2 puck lights on each cabinet. On the right side, can I connect 4 lights to the hardwired transformer since I only have one cable on that wall?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on August 21, 2012

Answer:
Nunda,

With these puck lights, each is connected to the transformer. The puck lights do not link together. I do not see any reason why you could not link all 4 back to the hardwire transformer in your proposed install.

By Bill from Portland, Connecticut on September 9, 2012
I want to install 3 of the low voltage puck lights in a cabinet. Your spec document states these lights should not be more than 10 feet from the transformer --- I am about 13 feet from transformer to fixture. I am assuming this distance is due to the voltage drop in the fixture cable. I have already run a 14-2 NM sheath cable from each of the lights to the intended location of the transformer. Since my cable is probably at least 2 wires sizes larger than the supplied cable, would it be possible to gain the 3 extra feet without going to a dc transformer?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on September 10, 2012

Answer:
Bill,

You are correct that voltage drop is an issue after 10ft. Voltage drop causes the lights to appear less bright.

I think you might be OK with this install as long as each puck light is the exact same distance away from the transformer - that way, if there is even a slight bit of voltage drop, all of the puck lights will appear equally bright.

By Steve Thompson from Minneapolis, MN on September 11, 2012
My setup is wired with 12-2 (20A) rather than 14-2 (15A), is the direct wire transformer safe to use with that?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on September 12, 2012

Answer:
Steve - yes, the higher the amp rating, the better.
By Davy from Cumming, GA on September 13, 2012

Answer:
Yes, it is completely safe to use your direct wire transformer with a 12-2 wiring system.

By Scott from Portland, OR on September 26, 2012
I have 2 sets of 3 lights that I have wired up as instructed and they work but the lights don't smoothly dim, kind of bright then really dim and then flicker all within the top 1/3 of the dimmer switches throw. Also, there is a humming sound coming from the transformers. Is that normal? Any suggestions to make these work more smoothly?
Thanks for you help!
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on September 27, 2012

Answer:
Scott,

I am assuming you are using an electronic low voltage transformer.

If that's the case, then your best bet is to install an electronic low voltage dimmer.

Yes, it's normal for transformers to hum, especially when dimming.
By Dave from Atlanta on September 28, 2012

Answer:
If these are the Puck Lights with the electronic transformers then you will need a dimmer specifically designed for electronic transformers. Pegasus has several different models, here is the link to one of them http://www.pegasuslighting.com/skylark-dimmer-electronic-transformer.html. This should help but the humming may continue and would be considered "normal".

By Scott from Utica, NY on October 1, 2012
How many puck lights can be installed with one transformer? I need 7-8 lights, but only have one junction box connected to a wall switch.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on October 1, 2012

Answer:
Scott,

A max of 3 puck lights can be connected to a single transformer in these kits.

For that many puck lights, you might want to consider our xenon line voltage puck lights: http://www.pegasuslighting.com/xenon-line-voltage-puck-lights.html

With the line voltage puck lights, you could purchase (2) 4-light kits and the hardwire box for connecting all 8 lights to a single wall switch.
By Davy from Cumming, GA on October 2, 2012

Answer:
Each puck light has a 20 watt lamp so you need to install your transformers accordingly. In your case 2- 80 watt transformers are needed. http://www.pegasuslighting.com/electronic-low-voltage-transformer-80w-12v-prs1280m.html. Install both transformers to your switched 120 volt wiring in the junction box and the wiring for 4 pucks to each transformer.

By Robert from Colorado on January 6, 2014
Hi,
What are the physical dimensions of the hard-wire transformer that can be included with this kit? I am trying to determine if I have the space under the cabinet to be able to hide it.

By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on January 6, 2014

Answer:
The dimensions are 0.75inH x 1.25inW x 2-1/8inL

By Steve from Rochester Hills, MI. on May 3, 2014
I purchased a 3 pack of pucks plus 1 additional puck, 3 pucks have 20 watt bulbs and the other a 10 watt bulb. My question is should I replace other 3 pucks with 10 watt bulbs for a total of 40 watts or find a transformer that can handle 80 watts? I do prefer the brightness of the 20 watt bulbs.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on May 5, 2014

Answer:
Steve, this is entirely a personal decision. If you like the brightness of the 20W, than go for replacing the transformer. If you would prefer the ease of simply using 10W bulbs, than you have that option too.
