Hello and thanks for your help.
I will be as precise as I can
I have 112 feet of 8 foot flouersent bulbs (14 8 ft units) The current configurations are so that the fixtures are run in a series of 110v 3 wire with every other fixture on the same circuit. I am leaving the fixtures and disconnecting the ballast. I am running strip LED lighting over the existing fixtures.
I will be replacing four bulbs with two stips of 5 meter led strips. The strips are rated per 5 meters at 12v 5a per run.
My question is: 1- do I have one massive transformer at the end of each unit and run individual wires from the transformer to the end of the light strip?
2- where the end of 4 light stips come together do I put in a 12v 20 amp power supply and run off of the 120 lines already there.
3- trying to achieve the most consistent lighting, do I chain the lights together and then run one common back to the supply.
4- I am up to suggestions as it can get very expensive as I have 4 sets of 112 feet to run and power supplies can get very expensive placing one at every junction.
FYI The 110 currntly running is 12ga stranded wire and I can use that if needed.
Thanks in advance as I have no clue about 12 volt stuff.
