I have these under cabinet lights that have 24 awg wires and I’d like to hardwire them to a switch that’s powered by 14/2 romex. Is there anyway to make this happen? An inexpensive converter? A secret method I don’t know about? Anything?
If your light fixture is intended for 120 volts and, instead of gold and silver screw terminals it has 24 gauge black and white wires coming out, then you may wire nut those wires to an ordinary 20 amp or 15 amp branch circuit feeding into the outlet box to which the light fixture is attached.
Overcurrent protection for those 24 gauge fixturewires is provided by the lamps (bulbs) in the light fixture in that the lamps will draw no more power than they want,.
