Landscape Lighting Toolkit

Why Landscape Lighting Toolkit Was Made


Landscape Lighting Toolkit was created for landscape lighting installers and home DIYers that have little or no electrical knowledge. The Toolkit tutorials and calculators introduce and assist in overcoming the issues of dealing with low voltage / high current electrical systems. The same electrical principles such as load balancing and circuit overload still apply, plus there are new issues such as line loss and exposure to water that should be considered when planning a landscape lighting system.

While it is true that it is difficult to get shocked on a 12V or 15V wire, there are other things that can go wrong with a poorly designed system. Some things are just frustrating, such as dim or flickering lights, or a transformer that keeps tripping. Other things can be dangerous. It is possible for a badly overloaded wire to become so heated that it can set fire to landscaping. Or an overheating transformer on an inside garage wall could do much worse... The Toolkit, followed from start to finish, assists in designing a completely safe and optimized low voltage electrical system that is expandable for future needs.

Additionally, the calculators make fantastic troubleshooting tools for an existing system that is acting up. We have found in the past several months that the Landscape Lighting Toolkit can diagnose a wide range of common problems that would otherwise prove to be extremely.

About the Authors


Landscape Lighting Toolkit was written by Daniel Hall with engineering assistance provided by Chris Panayotti. Daniel Hall has been a programming nerd for 35 years, starting with BASIC in 1979 (age 10) and moving through ASCII, PASCAL and FORTRAN in high school; then making the switch to HTML and Javascript in '99 and on through a dozen or more web-based languages and technologies; and in recent days doing desktop development in Visual C#.net, and mobile development with HTML5 / CSS / Javascript used to create Landscape Lighting Toolkit. Chris Panayotti is a mechanical engineer that has been designing truly excellent, high-end landscape lighting fixtures and mastering the principles of low voltage electrical systems for the past four years.
