While advanced LED fixtures draw less voltage than standard base lamps, FX Luminaire recommends preparing for your next lighting system installation by first calculating the voltage drop. This convenient calculator allows you to customize the different aspects of the system such as wire gauge and run lengths between fixtures. You'll find the voltage available at each fixture as well as the total VA.
