Read all instructions.
Turn off power at main switch before installing or modifying the system.
Do not conceal or extend exposed conductors through a building wall.
Do not install any part of this system less that 7 feet (2.2m above the floor.
Do not install the system:
-Within six inches of any curtain or combustible materials
-In a damp or wet location
After first 1/2 hour of operation, switch off and check all connections for excessive heat.
Loose connections must be tightened to prevent overheating which can damage the system and pose a potential fire hazard. Do not over tighten.
Intended for installation by a qualified electrician.
Installation should be in accordance with NEC and local codes. Use minimum AWG #10 wire for secondary wiring.
Flexible low volt mono rail is a single circuit rail that can be operated from either 12 or 24-volt power supplies, magnetic or electronic, remote or surface mounted.
Mono rail fixtures include rail mounted heads, quick connect heads, and quick connect cable hung pendants. Mono rail mounts to ceilings by use of metal rod stand offs, or cable and may be used on sloped or suspended ceilings.
Mono rail is composed of two copper conductors separated by a plastic insulator. It is flexible and bendable. Rail is supplied in 4 or 8 ft lengths and may be field cut. Stand off's are available in 3 to 6 inch lengths, and longer lengths for high ceiling applications. Mono rail maximum loads are 300 watts at 12 volts and 600 watts at 24 volts. Rail is 25 amp rated. Voltage drop is an important consideration in the initial design. The length of a monorail run depends on the distance from the transformer and the wattage load. Wire gauge size is also a factor in how far a remote transformer may be located from the rail. Consult the voltage drop guideline chart.
Transformer Selection Guide:
Either electronic or magnetic transformers can power mono rail. Electronics are smaller than magnetic. The larger magnetic transformers have greater wattage capacities. There is a lesser degree of voltage drop in a magnetic transformer, making them a more practical choice for longer runs (see voltage drop guidelines). Electronic transformers offer quieter operation than magnetics, making them a more practical choice for quiet settings. Magnetic transformers generally contain less components making them among the most reliable power sources.
Either transformer can be used with dimmer switches. An electronic transformer will work with most standard incandescent dimmers. A magnetic transformer generally requires a low voltage dimmer specifically made for magnetic loads. However some of our remote magnetic transformers have the ability to be dimmed with standard incandescent dimmers. Consult our factory for details.
Because the mono rail system works with 12 or 24 volts we offer transformers for either voltage. The maximum amperage of the rail is 25 amps. You may run 600 watts on a 24 volt system (25 amps) or 300 watts on a 12 volt system ( also 25 amps). Our 600 watt transformers are offered in 12 or 24 volts, however the 12 volt version has two outputs with 300 watts available at each.
Transformers are available as surface mounts or remote. Surface mount transformers mount to a junction box, due to their weight it is important that the box be adequately secured to the ceiling structure.
Most of our remote magnetic transformers have a boost tap option, which allows the transformer to be wired for a slightly higher (approximately 10%)voltage output to compensate for voltage drop. To use see instructions furnished with the transformer.
