  • Q:

    On a 160 foot linear run with 5 lights total with less than 50 watts can I use 12/2 gauge wire?
    Asked on 8/24/2017 by Gene from Erie, Pa

    1 answer

    • VOLT Lighting Specialist

      A:

      For a run with a length of 160', we would recommend using 10-gauge direct burial cable as it is rated for use up to 250'. 12-gauge cable is rated for use up to 150' so, voltage loss could indeed occur if you attempted to use it.

  • Q:

    Does the 12/2 direct burial cable have polarity markings on the wire? Common and positive wire?
    Asked on 4/22/2017 by Joe D from Ft. Washington MD

      A:

      No, the cable we carry does not have polarity markings.

  • Q:

    I know this is direct burial cable but in some areas I need to run it thru conduit.
    Will this wire fit (and easily slide) thru a 1/2" (inside diameter) pvc electrical conduit?
    Asked on 3/7/2017 by Tom from Auburn CA

    1 answer

    • VOLT Lighting Specialist

      A:

      Yes, it will. The 1/2" conduit should be able to fit multiple 12/2 gauge wires inside with ease.

  • Q:

    I have a project where i have a pretty long run 300+ I'm only using 3 of the 60 spots i know the wattage is low but what about voltage drop? When will it be necessary to increase the wire and power supply? After how many feet? I used your product several times at place i volunteer I'm an retired 35 years in the electrcal business. It seems a bit different fomular from line volktage to low voltage...thanks...Great product love working with it
    Asked on 3/3/2017 by Gary from Long island n.y.

    1 answer

    • VOLT Lighting Specialist

      A:

      For our systems, it is not recommended to have runs that exceed 300 ft because it is harder to calculate and get the lights in a comfortable voltage range. We do not have information on the distances you may start to see voltage drop, but we do have recommended gauges for different cable lengths. Runs between 250-300ft will need 8/2 gauge as well as a transformer with higher voltage taps to help with the voltage drop. We would usually recommend the 12v-22v output transformer for this.

After comparing to big box retailer's Direct Burial Cable, I have found Volt's cable to be much more flexible, even in cold weather around freezing. This makes splicing and inserting into Blazing connectors and fixtures MUCH EASIER. Measured voltage loss on the 250' roll is VERY LOW. Great product, easy to use.

Poor packaging

Cable is fine, but packaging needs improved. I ordered 250ft of 12/2 and the aluminum spool was in a ball when it arrived. The cardboard box is evidently not enough to protect...Read complete review

Cable is fine, but packaging needs improved. I ordered 250ft of 12/2 and the aluminum spool was in a ball when it arrived. The cardboard box is evidently not enough to protect the flimsy Al spool. The AL was bent and cut, so it also has sharp edges.

Comments about VOLT® 12/2 - 250' Cable | Direct Burial Cable:

I was advised by volt support Techs to purchase this 12/2 wiring because of the number of lights and distance I would be running the wire. Outstanding Company that has turned my Ranch from a Dark place to a showpiece that shines at night. We are very happy coustomers. I have purchased three kits from them. In the last 6 months and installed them myself

Good wire for low voltage . Wish they would color code one side of the wire versus the rib. Would always recommend going with the 12 gauge on most jobs to reduce voltage drops.
