Q: Do ALLIANCE Outdoor Lighting products meet UL standards?
Yes, most ALLIANCE Outdoor Lighting products are ETL listed with a UL rating.
Q: I am installing some ALLIANCE Outdoor Lighting fixtures and I noticed there is a secondary wire lead, what am I supposed to do with it?
Most in-ground fixtures made by ALLIANCE come with a double lead. The double lead is designed to wire your LED fixtures in series. You use it by connecting the 25’ wire lead from the next fixture to the 18” lead. If you choose not to use one of the wire leads you can just cut it off or bury it in the ground for future use.
Q: How do I hook up my fixtures to my transformer? Which terminals am I supposed to use?
Each transformer has a common tap and a voltage tap, or multiple commons and multiple voltage taps. When installing the wire into the transformer you will need to separate the two strands of each wire and insert one strand into a common and the other strand into the voltage tap. Higher voltage taps are designed to provide more voltage for longer wire runs or wire runs with more load on them. Most LED systems will be fine using any voltage tap. Halogen systems will need to be calibrated so that each fixture received between 10.8 and 12 volts.
Q: I have a halogen system; how do I upgrade to an ALLIANCE LED system?
ALLIANCE provides drop-in lamps for almost every existing low-voltage halogen system. To switch to LED you simply need to replace your halogen lamps with an ALLIANCE LED counterpart. LED lamps can be purchased at your nearest distributor location.
