A voltage normally exceeding 50 V a.c. or 120 V whether between conductors or to earth, but not exceeding 1000V a.c. or 1500 V d.c. between conductors, or 600 V a.c. or 900 V between conductors and earth.
Term applied to currents of 24 volts or less. Must be transformed from normal 110 volt input. Useful in animation, lighted model, ect.
Low-voltage lights run along a wire from a transformer plugged into an electrical socket; low-voltage systems use very little electricity, and are one of the most commonly used exterior lighting types.
Lower voltage lamps give more intense light than mains voltage lamps of the same wattage.
Voltage which is typically less than 30 Vrms.
A term which applies to wiring or other electrical devices using 30 volts or less. Low-voltage control devices usually function on 24V ac +10%/-15%.
A wiring system that provides power to some electronic devices operating on a voltage level much lower than the standard 110 volts. Such devices might be doorbells and thermostats.
AC system operating voltages from 120 to 600 VAC.
A lamp that nominally operates at 6, 12, or 24 volts. A transformer must be used to convert the 120-volt line voltage to the lower voltage.
An electromotive force rated 24 volts nominal or less, supplied from a transformer, converter, or battery.
Lighting and electrical systems that operate on voltage much lower than the 110/220-V service commonly found in North America.
Voltage under 50 volts, generally not considered an electrocution hazard. 48 volt nominal systems are slightly controversial because they can operate above or below 50 volts.
Lamps that use 6, 12, or 24 volts instead of 120, and require a transformer connected between them and the standard 120 volt power source.
Low voltage is an electrical engineering term that broadly identifies safety considerations of an electricity supply system based on the voltage used. While different definitions exist for the exact voltage range covered by "low voltage", the most commonly used ones include "mains voltage". "Low voltage" is characterised by carrying a substantial risk of electric shock, but only a minor risk of electric arcs through air.
