Switching to An LED Hardwire Power Supply
Most homes within the U.S. and other regions use Romex wire with 110V and 120V being routed to wall switches. These wall switches then control haolgen, etc. under cabinet lighting.
With the benefits we get from using LED fixtures, many homeowners are looking to upgrade. This is where we need to convert the 110/120V down to an LED friendly, 12V.
As in the diagram, the 110/120V would run through the wall switch and then be converted down to 12V with Tresco Lighting’s Dimmable Hardwire Power Supply.
