Ordering Notes: (many of them)
The TwinStick2-LED involves layout planning. The lights come in 8" and 12", and then also a 12" as the Feed-in-Stick. You can connect them end to end to make longer lights, and they overlap when connected, thus giving the impression of no gap. Up to 8 feet of lights can be powered from a single TWINSTICK2/PC power cable coming out of the terminal block on the driver. Drivers come in 6 watt, 30 watt, 75 watt, and a 96 watt. You can have multiple TWINSTICK2/PC power cables coming out of the same driver if you need to extend lights in multiple directions, as long as you do not exceed the total wattage of the driver. Each power cable utilizes two ports in the terminal block attached to the driver. Power Drivers page

For long even straight lines of lights, such as in store display shelves, lights can connect end to end. They will appear to be just one really long light with no dull spots or gaps. To turn corners or to reach across distances where you do not want the light to be, you can use the various length connecting cables. And the connecting cables can connect to each other if you need a little more reach.

The 8" lights are 3 watts and the 12" are 4.4 watts. The 12" Feed-In-Stick is also 4.4 watts. Add up the wattages of your planned interconnected lights, and then order the appropriate size power driver. You need one TWINSTICK2/PC per run of lights, and a maximum of 8 feet per power cable. This is where the Feed-In-Stick would apply on longer runs. Its connected cable attaches into the terminal block on the driver for a boost of power. It also uses two ports in the terminal block.

For example: If you have 5 feet that you want to light up and can fit 60" of lights with a little room off the input end to accommodate the TWINSTICK2/PC connection, you can interconnect 5 of the 12" lights. That would be 22 watts and you can use the PS24V/30/S 30 watt LED driver. But what if you had only 58" of space, well you could connect 4 of the 12" followed by one 8" for a total of 56" and 20.6 watts of consumption. What if you want to turn the corner and have two more feet of light? Use one of the various length connecting cables, add two more 12" lights, which is another 8.8 watts added on and now you are up to 29.4 watts, which still allows you to use the 30 watt driver. Back up a moment: if you did use five 12" on the first side and then two 12" around the corner, seven of the 4.4 watt lights is 30.8 watts. Now you would step up to the PS24V/75/S 75 watt power driver to handle that load. You cannot exceed the wattage rating on the PS24V drivers. And for extended life of a driver, you should not max them out to their limit either. They will function at the limit, but if you are a little under, you can greatly extend the life of a driver. Such as, the 6 watt driver could power two of the 8" lights. But it would be in your better interest to use the 30 watt driver just so you do not make the 6 watt work so hard. Questions? Ask us.

If planning on using the STICKPSDIM dimming module to make the lights dimmable, note that it has a 48 watt maximum. You can run multiple STICKPSDIM dimming modules from the same driver as long as you keep the maximum wattage of the lights under the driver limit. The DIMCONTROL dimming controller will plug and play connect to the STICKPSDIM. And with use of the Y-Cable, the DIMCONTROL actually can control two STICKPSDIM modules. All these dimming components are shown on the Power Drivers and Dimmers page. There is also a remote control dimmer set up which has a capacity of 72 watts.

The TwinStick2-LED lights can be used in conjunction with any of Hera's spotlight LED lights that run from the PS24V drivers. Note that the TWINSTICK2/PC utilizes two of the ports on the driver terminal block. Spotlights connect into the terminal block one by one. The TwinStick2-LED light must use the TWINSTICK2/PC. That 98" power cable has the jack connection on it to connect into the driver, and then the TwinStick2 connecting end to attach to the input end of the first light.

When interconnecting these lights on display shelves, you can run them across shelves and at multiple levels, and have them continuously connect via connecting cables and potential Feed-in-Sticks. Mounting clips will come with the lights. You do have the option of attaching them with 2-sided tape too, a good brand such as 3M. When mounting to the underside of glass, you would want to use 3M tape.

The STICK2/CP/39 is a translucent shield that you can use in recessed applications into wood. It is 39" long, can be cut, and can be used in multiple pieces to cover longer runs. Gives a sleek look for channel recessed applications. It also hides the diode dots. Kind of resembles a fluorescent look with all the advantages of LED. It is not mandatory, it is just a design choice.

Some spec diagrams on the TwinStick2-LED now follow:

Hera TwinStick2-LED size specifications
Hera TwinStick2-LED cable specifications
Hera TwinStick2-LED mounting specifications
The TwinStick2-LED lights are low voltage and must use the 24 volt constant voltage power drivers. There are several choices of drivers, the PS24V drivers are those you want to select from. Lights are dimmable and dimming accessories are shown on that web page too. Along with addtional cable and switching devices. Since there are many to choose from and they apply to many of the Hera low voltage LED lights, we show them on a page by themselves instead of making this page a lot longer. Please go to LED Power Drivers and Dimmers to make your selections to go with the lights.

In the spec diagram to the left, there is a comment about attaching with glue or screws. On wood surfaces, we recommend using the supplied mounting clips and attaching with screws. On glass or metal surfaces, 3M double sided tape to the appropriate width makes sense. Glue, however, sounds like it could get sticky. Too much adhesive could ooze, and make an unsightly mess. And note, one day you might need to remove and replace a light. They are rated for 50,000 hours. Consider if they are in a store display and on 12 hours a day all 7 days of the week. That is 84 hours a week. Lights would have an estimated life of 595 weeks or just over 11 years. So in reality, anticipate that some or all may need to be replaced one day. I would not glue them in place. 3M tape would be a better approach.
