12- Volt VS 120-Volt: The Low Voltage Advantage
12-volt is safer than 120-volt. Feel at ease knowing your low-voltage lighting
system poses no risk of accidental electrical injury.
12-volt operating expense is approximately 1/3 less than 120-volt lamps. The
longer you operate a low-voltage system, the more money you save.
Installation costs are approximately 1/4 as much for
12-volt. Low voltage lighting allows for a more functional lighting system at a fraction of the
cost of traditional high-voltage systems.
12-volt lamps give beam control rather than the omni direction flare
associated with 120-volt lamps; therefore, allow for more exact, specialized lighting effects to be incorporated
into your low-voltage system designs.
For wattages of 75 or less, there are over 100(one hundred) 12-volt lamps
available, compared to 12 (twelve) 120 volt lamps. Eliminate problems of
fixture and lamp availability along with concerns of limited selection when you choose low-voltage
12-volt lamps are capable of compact design therefore yield more compact
fixtures. Focus onlooker attention on the lighting effect as apposed to the light
12-volt lamps produce a better quality of light than
120-volt. Experience subtle natural lighting effects when you specify low-voltage
12-volt lamps are available in a wide range of quartz halogen, not available
to 120-volt. Again, the diverse varieties of low-voltage fixtures and lamps insure that you can
create the lighting effects necessary for any installation.
Control of 12-volt outdoor lighting is available as an easy, low cost after
thought. This is a rare feature for the more expensive 120-volt
Fully automated low-voltage lighting systems are easily attained by adding
various inexpensive control options to the existing system. There are multiple control
options available for you to choose from.
