The magnetic track light is a kind of light fixture installed on the track by the magnet on the light fixture. The track is composed of an aluminum shell, copper conductor and iron sheet. When the luminaire with magnet is close to the iron sheet in the track, the luminaire will be adsorbed on the track without any tools, and at the same time the luminaire is in contact with the copper conductor, then powered by an AC110-220V to DC48V transformer for the whole track lighting system.
On the magnetic linear track, different forms of magnetic attraction lamps can be installed. Not only can they move freely on the track like regular LED track lights, but they can also be disassembled and installed at will. Through different parts, the magnetic tracks can be connected to each other to form an L shape, square shape, or U shape, etc.
What are the components of the magnetic track lighting system?
The entire magnetic lighting system consists of 3 parts – magnetic rails, magnetic lighting fixtures, and accessories. Each part has something to pay special attention to. Let’s go over the main points of each part in detail.
Magnetic track rails
In terms of size, the magnetic track is mainly divided into two types: 20mm width (M20) and 35mm width (M35). The width of these two track strips determines the width of the corresponding magnetic lamp track head. That is, a 20mm wide track can only be installed with lamps with a 20mm width track head, and 35mm is also the same. Of courese, recently there is other slim type track, only with 15mm available in markets.
From installation way, the magnetic rails including recessed magnetic track, suspended magnet track, and surface mounted magnetic rails.
Magnetic Led Track light luminaires
The main magnetic lamps on the market include grille spotlights, linear floodlights, adjustable folding spotlights, track spotlights, and pendant lights. Each luminaire is a modular design that can be added, removed, and moved on the track at will.
