Tech Lighting Monorail
Single Circuit & 2-Circuit Monorail System

Tech Lighting Monorail low-voltage rail system can be customized for large or small spaces with a wide variety of angular configurations or bent into soft curves for more fluid designs. It is available in straight, curved or circle kits with everything you need, then customize with any spotlights, pendants or unique art lighting and accessories.

Tech Lighting 2-Circuit Monorail System allows independent switching of two separate circuits so you can combine a series of pendants and directional heads on the same expanse of rail and still control them independently. This is ideal when layers of light are desired to create both ambient and directional or task lighting in one specific area.

Tech Lighting Wall Monorail System is the ideal choice for highlighting wall art or signage or avoiding interference of special ceiling features such as tin ceilings, murals, or tray ceilings. Wall monorail is a versatile solution for installing a series of low-voltage directional heads along a wall.

Design your rail.

  • Determine what you want to light.
  • Decide where track heads, pendants or both will be placed to direct light where you want it.
  • Design the Monorail run, connecting the lights.
    Monorail can be shaped to follow room architecture or create an organic shape.
    You can sketch out your room on paper. Draw in your lights, then decide how you want to design the track to suspend them.
    You could use string to lay out your design on the floor to determine your length, especially if you have an especially curvy run.

    Rail is available in connectable two, four or eight foot sections to be bent in the field to a radius as small as 6" and vertically to a radius as small as 24" or used as a straight section.
    Precurved pieces, prebent S-curves and circles are available in a variety of sizes.
    All rail pieces are field-cuttable and bendable.
  • Connectors allow monorail to make sharp angles or join in a "T" or "X."
  • Dead-End connectors allow you to switch and dim sections of rail separately.
  • Finish your rail with end caps.
  • Choose a finish; Antique Bronze, Chrome, Satin Nickel.
  • Or choose a kit for a lower cost simple setup.

Determine your mounting.

  • Determine how far from the ceiling you would you like your rail to run.
    Monorail can be installed nearly flush to the ceiling. Rigid standoffs suspend track up to 96". Adjustable cable standoffs hang up to 30'.
  • Rail can be curved horizontally or vertically, to run up and down.
  • Rigid or cable suspensions mount to flat ceiling, T-Bar ceiling using a clip or sloped ceilings using a Standoff Vault Adapter.
  • Use a support every 3 feet.
  • The total number of supports depends on the shape of the track layout.
  • A rigid power feed may count as a support.
  • Systems with very unique shapes or many pendants may require additional supports.
  • For best appearance, place the last standoff 4-6" from the end of the rail and place standoffs symmetrically.

Choose your lights.

  • Decide where the fixtures should be installed to put light where you want it.
  • Select from an array of low voltage track heads, pendants and whimsical art lights.
  • Add optional colorful and decorative accessories and functional optical controls.

Select your transformer.

  • Add up the wattage from the lights you have chosen.
  • Choose 12 or 24 volt.
  • Select a visible surface mount transformer or a hidden remote transformer with power feed canopy.
  • Surface mount transformers install directly to a standard junction box.
    Smaller electronic surface mount transformers are well suited for small runs.
    Magnetic surface mount tranformers have a higher wattage capacity.
  • Remote mount magnetic transformers can be installed further away, in an attic or closet.
  • Magnetic transformers minimize any voltage drop potential.
  • Select your power feed if you are going to use a remote transformer.

(Or start with fixtures and accessories, then decide which layout will best support them.)

Sleek, minimalist design meets easy installation. The Monorail practically hugs the ceiling. The Pass-Through combines a sleek new design with the ability to use 1" standoffs and ease of installation...More Details on the Transformer Page...>

This single-feed pass-through surface transformer converts standard 120 line voltage to 12 volts to provide the necessary voltage for powering a Monorail low-voltage lighting system.

It can power lamps totaling up to 300 watts and features a fast acting secondary short circuit and overload protection that will safely turn the system off should a short occur. Once the short has been removed, the unit can be reset by simply flipping the wall switch off and on.

  • First, the installer mounts and wires the upper canopy in much the same way a standard line-voltage pendant would be mounted.
  • Second, the installer connects the rail connector to the rail.
  • Finally, the installer snaps the lower canopy into the upper canopy without the need for any tools.
    The electrical connections are made automatically due to the mating components.
                    It's that easy.

The transformer bay is housed completely in the bottom canopy, so should there be any problems with the transformer at any time, only the bottom canopy would need to be removed. The upper canopy and the entire Monorail run can remain in place.

Remodel Recessed Transformers

Tech Lighting Monorail Remodel Recessed Transformers

Remodel Recessed Transformers install in a similar fashion as remodel recessed downlights and are concealed inside a housing that recesses above the ceiling. The decorative canopy is the only visible portion of the transformer once installed.

Remodel Recessed Transformers look similar from below the ceiling to the power feed canopies used with remote transformers and are preferred for their clean look.

An additional benefit they have over remote transformers is that they do not require access to a remote location because the transformer sits just above the ceiling. However, they are not compatible with all finished ceilings because an electrician will need to install the Remodel Recessed Transformer in close proximity to an existing junction box, drill through the finished ceiling in the location where the Remodel Recessed Transformer will be installed, and cover the existing junction box with the provided field-paintable metal cover. In new construction, an electrician can simply bring power to the Remodel Recessed Transformer directly.

The Remodel Recessed Transformer has an integral power feed so there is no need for a separate power feed; however, the transformer must be installed directly above the rail run. Insulation must be kept at least 3 inches away from the transformer and housing. This transformer is equipped with fast-acting short circuit and overload protection that will safely turn off the system should a short occur. Once the short is removed, the unit can be reset by simply flipping the wall switch off and back on.

How do I design my own Monorail?

First: a) Choose lighting elements.
Choose accessories, if required or desired.
b) Choose lamps (bulbs), 12 or 24 volt, that do not exceed maximum wattage of element or accessory.
(may be included with element).
C) Add up total lamp wattage on system. This is the number you will need to order your transformer. How many watts will you need?
d) Choose finish (Chrome or Satin Nickel)of system and make sure all of the parts come in this finish.

2nd: a) Decide where you want the rail to run.
b) Sketch it to scale, so you know what Length you want.
C) Measure Length of Monorail run.
d) Specify one pair of End Caps for each open end of run.
e) Count one Standoff for every three feet of rail.
f) Does the run include a sharp angle or turn? If so, you will need a Flexible Connector to make the turn.
If you would like, the rail can be custom bent at the factory. Just ask us.

3rd: a) Select a Transformer.
Do you want a surface transformer (visible) or a remote transformer (hidden in the ceiling or a closet)?
Do you want a magnetic or electronic transformer?
Do you want 12 volt or 24 volt?
Most people select 12 volt electronic. Now you need that number you came up with in step 1. How many watts do you need? We can help you decide whether you need single or dual feed.
b) If you have selected to use a remote transformer, you need to select a power feed canopy. Do you want round or square? What size hole do you need to cover?
C) Or select a Surface Transformer.
Remember! The wattage of the transformer must meet or exceed wattage of lamps calculated earlier!
d) If powering system with more than one transformer, add Isolating Connectors to isolate the feeds from each other.
e) If dropping system a distance below ceiling, add one Power Extender to each power feed (add two when using dual feed).


Surface Transformer


Remote Transformer

4th: a) Select how to mount it.
Select Standoffs that match or exceed drop of the Surface Transformer or Power Feed.
b) How long is your Monorail going to run? You will need 1 for every 3 feet of rail.
C) Is your ceiling vaulted? If so, you will need one Power Vault Adapter for each power feed (add two when using dual feed) and one Standoff Vault Adapter for each Standoff.

This covers the most common Monorail applications, but Monorail can do almost anything. For other Monorail system options just ask us!
