Q Les Deal • 01/22/2023, 2:24:59 AM When operating remote heads, what is the maximum distance to the furthest head, assuming the wiring from the main unit to the heads is 12awg?
A Exit Light Co. You are able to run it as long as you need it , as long as the voltage does not drop less than 5V.
Q Richard Ohrtman • 03/30/2023, 10:11:23 AM Do you sell just the led element itself?
A Exit Light Co. We do not sell LEDs themselves. We do sell retrofit kits if you are converting an incandescent sign to LED: https://www.exitlightco.com/search?categories%5B%5D=&Search=retrofit
