Track lighting....

Bill Koepp <bgkoe@...>

It is possible to put tracks in the ceiling and buy outlet plugs that fit
into the track, as well as track lights.
This is true, however every track has a labeled maximum total wattage and to
go over that total is risky. I put track lighting in our garage for
attending to our pampered old sports car. I wanted good light so I ordered
extra cans for the track at the time I bought it; upon assembling the track
and cans I soon concluded that I couldn't use high wattage in every can or
I'd overlaod the track and risk bad things. I compromised by using lower
wattage bulbs where the light wasn't a high priority.
Tracks are fun and mini-spot bulbs work well in the cans.

Electri-tech talk:
( Volts X Amps = Watts, Amps = Watts divided by Volts )

Consult with the specialists at the lighting supply place. Tell them what
your needs are. The reason track plug-ins are good is that you can move your
equipment, etc. around and change the position of the lighting, or you can
plug in whatever electric gizmo you want where ever you need it. Yes, you
must make sure you don't overload it. I use halogen lights which come with
their own transformers. The bulbs last forever, and the transformer converts
to low-voltage.
