I want to double check my calculations for low voltage lighting. I Have a 15 amp circuit, with some outdoor 110v floods on it. With everything on, it draws 7.4 amps. I would like to T off the junction box with a line to a transformer to run some 12v deck lighting. I want to make sure I am under my max amps of 15.
The deck lighting I want to run, as I said is 12v. The fixtures are as follows:
15 x 11 watt fixtures
12 x 7 watt fixtures.
How many amps will I draw in addition to the 7.4A already on this 15A circuit? I calculated about 2.5 amps in addition to my 7.4, which puts me at about 10A on a 15A circuit.
