Phantom AE Series (adjustable exposed) lighting strips provide the ultimate in performance and flexibility as a seamless, low voltage linear lighting source. All Phantom AE Series lighting strips are manufactured to your exact specifications using a variety of custom metal glare shields so that the light is always perfectly controlled while keeping the fixture out of sight. Lamping options include 3 watt, 5 watt, and 10 watt Incandescent festoon lamps (rated for 7,500 hours) or Xenon festoon lamps (rated for up to 20,000 hours).

Energy efficient 0.6 watt 12VAC AND 24VAC LED lamps are ideal for commercial applications where energy code compliance is an issue or a major consideration.  All lamping options are fully dimmable for achieving the perfect light level or to extend lamp life. Phantom AE Series light strips are available in eight popular painted colors and three custom trim profiles. Phantom Lighting is all about seeing the light, not the fixture!

FESTOON LAMPS

Festoon lamps are available in 3 watt, 5 watt, and 10 watt, in both 12VAC and 24VAC. Xenon lamps (2,800K) typically produce a whiter light and are used for display lighting. The light from an incandescent lamp (2,450K) is warmer in color, and more conducive to residential applications. The average life for a incandescent lamp is 7,500 hours and 20,000 hours for xenon festoon lamps. LED festoon lamps are available in a 0.6 watt, 12VAC model in several popular color temperatures such as 2,700K, 3,500K and 5,000K. LED festoon lamps produce very little forward throw heat, no UV rays and have an average lamp life of 50,000 hours. LED festoon lamps are perfect for retrofit applications or new projects that require a bright, efficient light source in hard to reach areas.


 

EXPLODED VIEW



Space Requirement
For best results, a wood reveal should be used to conceal the fixture. For applications above eye level use trim #4 and extend wood trim as
necessary. Allow 1” clearance between light fixture and holes.

 

Lighting Strip
Each lighting strip may contain one or more festoon lamps with spacing 4, 6 or 8 inches on center. For best results, always use a matte finish on the back of the cabinet to minimize reflections or glare.



Exposed Steel Shelf Supports (by others)
You can easily energize new or existing steel supports to conduct safe low voltage current for our exposed wiring method. This system virtually eliminates all the visible wiring and allows you to use standard shelf support clips. The use of aluminum shelf supports is not recommended!

 

Dimmer Controls (by others)
Magnetic low voltage transformers should always be used with a dimmer designated for magnetic or inductive loads. Electronic transformers should always be used with a dimmer designated for electronic loads.


Brass Contact Pads
Brass contact pads are designed to transfer electricity from the shelf support clip to the individual fixtures utilizing a safe low voltage current. Contact is made when the shelf is installed.

 

Transformer
Magnetic transformers are sized to match the total wattage of your lighting load and come equipped with one or more secondary circuit breakers. (See transformer sheet for more sizing information and amperage calculations)

TRANSFORMERS

To figure total requirements for transformers, calculate total watts per foot divided by voltage equals total amperage. (watts / voltage = amperage). Refer to the table to calculate wire size and fusing requirements or see transformer page for more specific details.
