Limits on track lighting can spell disaster for retail projects, as sales often depend on how well a product is displayed.

You might be familiar with LC&D’s SilverBullet panel. It’s a solution where code-mandated watts/foot calculations, such as California’s energy code Title 24, limit the length of track allowed (read more in LC&D’s brochure Energy Code Compliant Solutions).

That same track lighting freedom is now available for projects with a smaller scale and budget!

The new SilverBullet Mini is a circuit-current limiter just like the standard SilverBullet, with up to twelve current-limiting breakers. It comes in a smaller housing (12" x 12" x 4") and is competitively priced for small-footprint projects or any application requiring just a few track circuits. The larger SilverBullet (12" x 16" x 3.5"), with up to twenty-one breakers, is more suitable for medium-to-large sized applications. Our quintessence line of pre-wired solutions also incorporates the SilverBullet pre-wired to our GR 2400 relay panel giving you faster installation and takes up less space in the electrical room giving you back valuable wall space.
