Customer Question

All my backlighting are wired for low voltage using a Transformer. But, I bought some medium voltage light fixtures (75 watts) because of the attractive look. Per light supplier, I will be able to use low watts bulbs like 12 watts in these fixtures, which I plan to do. However, my question is that if there will be any compatibility problem using medium voltage light fixtures in low voltage system. Thank you!

Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. The issue will be that the lamp holder for one are not the same for the other.

Thanks Mike. So, it will not work with low voltage system.
Expert:  Mike G. replied 1 month ago.

It will only if you remove the existing lamp holder and replace them. The wiring itself will work.

Thanks Mike. So, it will not work with low voltage system? Should I return them and get low voltage post lights?

That would be the best solution.
