VOLTAGE CALCULATOR

Voltage Drop is a decrease in the voltage created by internal resistance to the flow of electricity through the wire.  It is the difference between the voltage supplied at the beginning of a wire run (at the transformer) and that at the end of the wire run.  If the Voltage Drop is too big, you will be able to see a decrease in brightness of the light fixtures as they get further away from the transformer.

Instructions:

- Enter a wattage amount.

- Select a wire gauge.

- Press calculate.
