The cabling installation is very similar to a typical voice & data structured cabling system. Cat5, Cat5e, or Cat6 unshielded twisted-pair cable can be installed to connect the engine in the rack to the light fixtures. The cable that supports the system can run next to, within the same cable bundle, or in the same cable tray as the existing voice & data cables.
The low-voltage lighting system can also be installed using an 18 AWG wire with the number of inside pairs matching the number of channels on the fixtures being installed. It should be aware that the troubleshooting this type of cable is not easy as troubleshooting category cable. Keeping the installation similar to any other voice & data system increases the odds of a successful project delivered on time.
