Electrical question for lights
This range thing will need lights (LED) at the target frames at 50 and 100 yards. They will need to be bright enough to make the targets visible with high powered scopes. I am thinking the snap together 4 foot strip lights protected by a steel plate shining down at a 45 degree angle will be great. Similar systems seem to work well at other ranges.
I will also have area flood lights at about 20 yards flooding the area so targets can be retrieved.
My question is this. Can I go with low voltage lights to save the cost of running 12/2 underground burial cable at about a buck a foot? 100 yards is a lot of money for just lights. I don't think the voltage drop from a 120 circuit through 12/2 would impact the LED since they can operate on various voltages with no issue. I was just wondering if the low voltage route would save me money.
