Low-Voltage Wire, Residential
Q-Tran Started researching standard, Low Voltage wire, as it applies to direct burial applications, a decade ago. What we found was shocking and convinced us that we had to invent a wire that met our high standards and could be trusted in the high-end applications using our product. Not only did we end up developing a revolutionary landscape wire, but UL's listing also gave us the opportunity to sell the Q-Wire for use inside single dwelling, residential buildings as an alternative to solid wire.
This is revolutionary! Now electrical contractors have a real option. Given Q-Wire is Stranded "NM" (Non-Metallic Wire), it is easier to pull and work with than traditional options.
The Q-Wire temperature rating has been upped to 90c vs. 60c on standard LV wire, and we tin-coat our bare copper to prevent the wire from oxidizing. Q-Tran's Q-Wire is UF-B, class 1, NEC- Chapter 3, therefore, this wire is rated to be placed outdoors, underground and inside single dwelling, residential buildings.
We have created wire that meets the high demands of the specifiers and engineers specing our products, allowing electricians to do their job right the first time without fear of failure, and is invisible to the homeowner, letting the light be the star of the show.
*When using Q-Wire indoors it is only listed for single dwelling, residential buildings.
