Design Your Own Enzis Monorail Run In Four Easy Steps
At any point during your planning process, please feel free to call 1-800-MY-LAMPS during regular business hours to consult with a lighting expert.
Step 1: Plan Your Layout
Begin by sketching your basic floorplan on a sheet of graphing paper. Draw circles where you want to place light fixtures and connect them all with a contiguous line, representing the Bruck Enzis Monorail track, itself. The track will be composed of segments, either straight (96") or hand bendable (72" or 144"), with a connector or isolating connector between each.
Step 2: Choose Mounting Elements
Before proceeding, determine how far you want the the Enzis Monorail track to drop from the ceiling. A combination of wall supports and ceiling supports or suspension cables are available to mount the track. As a rule, the monorail should be supported every three feet. In order to determine how many supports you will need, take the total length of the track, divide by three, and add one extra support element. (E.g., if your run is composed of five 72" track segments, it totals 30' and will therefore require 10 + 1 supports.)
Step 3: Choose Fixtures
Now that the track is taken care of, it's time to pick out some lighting fixtures. Bruck offers several fixtures designed especially for the Enzis Monorail system. However, an adaptor is also available to connect any of Bruck's plethora of Uni-Plug fixtures (pendants, spot-lights, etc.) to the Enzis system. Add as many fixtures as you like.
Step 4: Power the Circuits
The final step in designing your monorail run is dividing the system into powered circuits. Bruck Enzis Monorail is a 300W single circuit system, meaning that each segment of your run can handle a maximum of 300 watts (e.g., six 50W fixtures.) Isolating connectors can divide a run into as many separate circuits as you need. Each and every isolated 300W circuit requires its own power feed, power supply cable, and transformer. A transformer with an integrated Enzis power feed is also available.
To find out how many isolating connectors you need, take the total sum wattage of your fixtures and divide by 300. Round up to the nearest whole number and subtract one. (E.g., if you have eight 50W fixtures and four 35W fixtures, they will consume a total of 940W. Divided by 300 and rounded up, this means that you will need four circuits. Thus three isolating connectors will do the job.)
