After you have created a lighting plan, you can draw up a cable plan. This plan is
based on your lighting plan. In three easy steps, you develop a cable plan that
provides a clear overview of cable lengths, branches and voltages.
All of your fixtures are indicated in your lighting plan. Calculate the total voltage of
your lighting plan to determine how many transformers you will need. Next, find a
good location for mounting the transformer. We recommend mounting the transformers
inside, such as in a shed. If this is not possible, the transformer should be installed at a
height of at least 50 cm above the ground and with a HUB or SMART HUB PROTECTOR.
Draw a cable from the transformer along the fixtures. Keep in mind that in-lite has two types of cables:
a thick 10/2 cable and a thin 14/2 cable. The thick 10/2 cable has a maximum length of 80 m between
the transformer and the last light, while the maximum length for the thin 14/2 cable is 40 m.
We also have the following tips for you:
You have now drawn up a cable plan. To be on the safe side, check again to make sure you have not
overloaded your transformers. Add up the voltage for the fixtures you are going to connect to the transformer,
making sure this total is lower than the maximum allowable voltage of the transformer. A maximum of 50VA
can be connected to a HUB-50, while the HUB-50, while the HUB-100 can handle up to 100VA and the
SMART HUB-150 up to 150VA. Also try to divide the voltage as best as possible over the various cable outlets.
Finally, indicate the position of the desired accessories in your cable plan. For example, you can use the MOVE or
SMART MOVE motion detector to activate your lighting. For more information on the accessories, see the product pages.
