Can I hardwire the T5 LED Linear Light Fixture?
Can I hardwire this fixture? I want to get 2 of them and hardwire both. I could put in boxes and outlets for each, but I have things in place that will let me hardwire two of them centered on 4'.
As a starting point, it might be helpful to know that the T5 Linear Light Fixtures are designed for DC power rather than hard wiring to line voltage. As such, altering the fixtures to utilize line voltage will void the warranty.
In the event that you would prefer a direct-wire fixture, we would alternatively recommend our newly launched LED Ready T8 Fixtures, which are designed to be compatible with our LED Tube Lights without requiring any additional rewiring or ballast bypass steps.
