## What voltage should a pendant light be?

Low voltage pendants, also known as mini-pendants, use a tiny transformer to convert the standard house current of 120 volts down to 12 volts. This allows the pendants to hang from a thin cable or that is barely noticeable. They also use a more compact lamp that is usually halogen or LED.

### How do you line up a pendant light?

For spacing your pendant lights over an island, you first want to find the center point of the island. For a smaller island that only requires two pendants, you want to find the center point and then space the lights 30-36 inches apart with the widest part of the pendant being 30 inches from the other pendant.

What is line-voltage Tracklighting?

Line-voltage systems use the standard electrical wires and current in the home, which provides 120 volts to the fixtures. These popular types of track lighting installations tend to use spotlights or floodlights and have the largest light fixtures.

What is voltage of lighting?

A typical lightning flash is about 300 million Volts and about 30,000 Amps. In comparison, household current is 120 Volts and 15 Amps.

## What wattage are ceiling lights?

Phew, now that that’s over, let’s move onto wattage. Watts are the standard unit for measuring electricity. For lighting, there are three basic levels – mood lighting (about 40 watts), task lighting (about 100 watts) and the in-between or average lighting (often 60-75 watts).

### What size should kitchen island pendants be?

We recommend subtracting 12 inches from the width measurement of your island to get an idea of how wide your pendant should be. If your island measures 40 inches wide, then a pendant that’s 28 inches wide should suit the space well.

What is line line voltage?

The line to line voltage is the voltage between any two of the three phase wires ABC, e.g. Vab. With delta, there is no neutral wire available and so the voltage between any two of the three available phase wires is the line voltage by default.
