One or more control gear units are required for all LightLight track to ensure the standard 230V power supply is regulated to take 12V equipment. You can select between control gear in a design housing for visible mounting or control gear for concealed mounting. The sum of the total wattage plus the length of the track serve as a basis for the number of control gear units required. Here we provide you with the general technical data required when designing 12 volt Buschfeld lighting systems.


Control gear for concealed mounting is frequently applied in drywall construction or for installations in new buildings. This definitely makes sense in the case of large, powerful control gear units (e.g. 150 or 320 watt gear). This ensures that the overall aesthetic quality of the slimline track remains intact. Control gear for visible mounting is supplied in a design housing and can be mounted directly onto the track. Such control gear is ideal for temporary, permanent or subsequent installation.


The control gear for visible mounting is designed to align with Buschfeld track systems. As a result, there is a distinction between the control gear for Wall and Pend/Ceiling. The primary line contained in the transparent silver connecting cable is routed from the ceiling or wall outlet to the switched-mode power supply, concealed Buschfeld adapter feed included. When designing a Pend system additional cable suspension is required for the control gear. When using Ceiling it is also important to make sure it is positioned beneath a ceiling adapter. In the case of In recessed track it makes sense to use control gear for concealed mounting. 

Specify the design and number of luminaires required for your LightLight system. Re. light sources: given their different technical features and what this can mean when they are combined within one system, light sources need to be specified separately. Besides lamp holder, colour temperature and beam angle, we also offer different wattages. By calculating the overall wattage of the light sources per section of track, you can determine what kind of control gear would be most suitable. To support your planning we have out together an Overview of control gear. The last columns in the table indicate the potential number required for Soraa® VIVED LEDs or halogen lamps.


Note on the dimmability of control gear:
The lighting industry has rapidly changed in recent years. It switched from halogen to LED lamp technology. The LightLight system was originally developed for the use of halogen lamps. Today, LED retrofit lamps are used instead. As it has turned out, these cannot be dimmed properly with some control gear-dimmer combinations. The variety of possible combinations makes it impossible to make a reliable statement about the dimmability of a system. Noise can occur, the retrofit lamps flicker intermittently or they can only be dimmed down to a limited extent.
For this reason, we recommend using the LightLight system exclusively without dimming.
For dimmable and controllable lighting concepts, use our 48 V Sense System, in which the control and operating devices are matched to each other for flawless operation of the LED lamps.


Plan the entire layout of the lighting system you are designing and position the luminaires according to the lighting design concept. It is important to make sure that the total power consumption of the luminaires and the length of the track applied is not exceeded. Sections of track that are too long can be separated using insulated connectors. Once a further control gear unit has been added to the system, further luminaires can be mounted on the track.


Control gear in a design housing for visible mounting can be mounted on the ceiling or as a separate module alongside the track. In the latter case, we are happy to discuss positioning and installation with you.
