Can the 12v Intellibrite 5G Lights get power directly from the aux ports on the Intellicenter i8PS or will I need to install a seperate transformer to power it?

Joe,

Each light that you want to individually control, will need a separate high voltage relay (Aux relay) and separate step a down transformer.. Within reason, if you want all the lights doing the same thing, and being the same color, at the same time, then you can use one relay and one transformer...

You are not supposed to mix low voltage circuits, in the high voltage section of the load center..

This is the type of stuff that should be decided long before it is time to wire up the automation... ☹

And NO, you can't use the internal system 12 volts to drive external lights..

Thanks,

Jim R.

Jim, can you please expand on what you mean by this statement? Are you saying only the 120V Intellibrites should be used with the Intellicenter?
You need to wire the step down transformer to the aux relay (from GFCI breaker) for 12V Intellibrites.

Sparks,

The load Line side of the Aux relays in the automation are wired to 120 VAC... "If" you have 120 volt lights, then lights are tired into the load side of the Aux relays..

"If" you have 12 volts lights, then the input to the step down transformer is wired to the load side of the Aux relays and the 12 volt lights are wired the output of the transformer.

Thanks,

Jim R.

To be clearer...

"If" you have 12 volts lights, then the input to the 120V to 12V external step down transformer is wired to the load side of the Aux relays and the 12 volt lights are wired the output of the external transformer.
