what is magnetic track light?

Do you know the Magnetic light that is very popular recently

A track light is a light that can be adjusted on a track. It usually acts as a spotlight in places where key lighting is necessary. A traditional track light consists of a power box, a track, and a light body. The power box and the track are slidably connected to adjust their positions. The light body and the power box are pivoted to realize the adjustment of lighting angles. People think that sliding connections between the power box and the track are too much; they are complicated, difficult to disassemble and maintain, and costly; therefore, they design a magnetic connection structure: installing magnets in the power box, installing an iron sheet on corresponding rails to attract them.

Providing space for creativity is what every aspiring store owner dreams of. Creativity is always found in the ordinary and subtle, not easy to find. Creativity lies not in the change of quantity but in the leap of quality. Compared with the previous light design, magnetic lights have brought this kind of leap in quality.

The principle of magnetic track light

This innovative pre-embedded lighting module allows you to skip the use of cumbersome tools in the later stage so that it is easy to install and adjust. It is also flexible and convenient for installation in your home.

In addition, the size of the magnetic attraction track is also different. There are some articles on the facade such as household and commercial use. Now many luxury stores use the facade magnetic light in the window to increase the clothes on the opposite side. The lighting needs of bags and other accessories can be met by these decorative lights.

The composition of magnetic light

LED Track Magnetic Light

The magnetic light can be dimmed to create a softer glow, and the light body is also adjustable. Magnetic lights are made up of three main parts: track, light body, and switching power supply. When you buy a magnetic light, remember to look for these accessories because they affect the quality of the lighting.

1. Lighting chips

The light chip is attached to the lamp by magnetic attraction, which makes installation quite simple. The other two accessories will take a bit more effort to install.

2. Track

Three types of magnetic track lighting are embedded track, surface-mounted track, and hanging wire.

The type you choose depends on personal preference and other factors. You also have to consider your ceiling; if you go with this kind of lighting, you’ll need to prepare before the ceiling is suspended because it requires grooves to be installed and sealing plates painted on it before being suspended. Like other pre-embedded tracks, this task can be somewhat time-consuming. Surface-mounted track systems can be installed without a suspended ceiling.

A suspended ceiling is a better option than a dropped ceiling in office spaces with higher ceilings, but a professional electrician must install it. Tracks are much less intrusive in open office spaces than in commercial ones. Natural objects like these tend to be thicker and are better suited for homes or offices with low ceilings.

Families with low floors should buy mini tracks; they look less oppressive and more beautiful than ordinary tracks.

3. Transformer

When you use a low-voltage track, you’ll need a transformer. Transformers are an essential component of many light fixtures—but many people tend to overlook this. The transformer must be installed before installing the light fixture, or it won’t work.

The transformer comes in two types: the traditional embedded transformer is relatively large (10cm×12cm or 10cm×20cm). Generally, it should be hidden in the ceiling or air conditioning maintenance port, curtain box, etcetera.

Before installing a magnetic light fixture, you must decide where to hide your transformer. Transformers for indoors are typically 40 cm wide and can only be used on thick tracks (25 mm) because the rails used indoors are thinner than those used outdoors. But you can also opt for one with fewer tracks if you already have a transformer that’s too large for your train layout.

Combined with intelligent control

Smart magnetic track lighting system Usage Scenarios

Smart lights, which are gaining popularity along with the growth of smart homes, are magnetic and can be controlled through a mobile phone. Smart magnetic lights require specialized dimming modules, power supplies, and intelligent dimming modules.

The intelligent control system and magnetic line lighting have been combined so that the entire system can be controlled at will on your mobile phone as long as the pairing is set on the phone APP. From adjusting the color and dimming of a single light to adjusting the color and dimming of a group of lights, this can be easily accomplished with one button, and suitable lighting at any time can be selected.

The basic characteristics of magnetic lights are: they can be used to meet different lighting needs and can be dimmed for single light dimming and group dimming. Magnetic lights can be said to be a product brought by high technology.
