I want to wire up some LED strip lights.
Assuming I properly go through a transformer to the apropriate 24v the strip lights require (that is, the transformer these particular strip lights come with), is there any harm in me using 14ga wire, rather than 22ga, to bridge gaps of the LEDs?
e.g. the setup would look like:
120v 15amp lightswitch V 120v 15amp switched outlet V 24v strip light plug-in transformer V strip light dimmer that comes with it V 14ga wire, branching four directions V
~3ft strips of LEDs (per branch)
I'm not talking about running LEDs off 120v AC current.
Can I run 24v current over 14ga wire for 8ft to power LEDs? Will the LEDs receive the power I'm trying to send them, or will they be too dim?
