I'm running LED light strips from a location that is over 50 feet from the LED transformer. In order to account for voltage drop 10 AWG CL2 wire has been used.
- Since the 10 AWG wire is so thick, what is the proper way to attach the red and black wires ( see pic ) to the led strips within an LED channel?
- Is it code to pigtail a the 10 AWG wire to a 26 AWG wire within an LED channel. The 10 AWG wire is coming directly out of a wall. There's no room for a junction box at this point.
- Would a butt connector be the most appropriate connector, in this case, do to the small size of the LED channel? If not what is an appropriate connector.
