I'm new to home improvement. Here's my question.
I've got several led strips for ~24V each and I've formulated a circuits to make them work from a 48V outlet at a lab psu. Approx. 16 ampere unregulated.
The 48V standard is a little high for safety reasons here, so I've tested for ~24V 3A per line with some success (much 50hz noise, more), but still unsure how to do cabling and terminals.
Should I use straight outlet terminals at 48V for instance?
The question is. Should I secure the installation to send straight 48V all across the place, and regulate each terminal individually, or push an already regulated ~24V at source.
What would you recomend? What precautions should I take? ex: fuses, max current, current spikes crowbar, individual crowbars at each terminal. etc.
What would be the standards being in place for 48V lab standards for illumination and motor drivers/electronic modules?
