Low voltage wiring will require a chapter 3 wiring method, there is no UL listed low voltage wiring that is allowed in the wall, or ceiling. Class 2 wiring is not listed for LV lighting application see 411Larry one other question. If I am using the "remote transformer" type of recess rough in (which only has a junction box, no transformer) what is the customary wire type that is run on this low volt circuit? I assume any cl2 wire that is of the correct wire size for the load and distance will suffice but I was wondering what is customary. I am thinking cl2 speaker wire, but would the inspector allow typical outdoor extension cord for those runs? It sure is easy to work with and cheap too.
As far as I know? this has be a many of debates here on LV cabinet lighting.Looks like I am REALLY gonna have to get a code book, thanks. So are you saying only good ole romex (or conduit) for the low volt secondary wiring?
Isn't there IC rated cans comparable to an H7? As far as in-wall LV wiring, biting the bullet by using NMB would save a lot of inspector discussions. Those luminaires still require EGC bonding. rbjAs far as I know? this has be a many of debates here on LV cabinet lighting.
