The mounting brackets come pre-installed. Loosen the screws
to move the brackets to a desired location, then re-tighten.
Each mounting bracket can connect to a chain, cable, rod, or
be surface mounted.
Chain or Cable Mounting

120-277V: Connect the green (ground), black (line)
and white (neutral) wires of the AC line to the
similarly colored wires of the fixture’s power supply
using UL listed wire connectors. Re-attach endcap.
347-480V: Connect the green (ground), red (line)
and black (neutral) wires of the AC line to the
similarly colored wires of the fixture’s power supply
using UL listed wire connectors. Re-attach endcap.
Continuous Run Installation
When ordered as an option, continuous run fixtures use quick-connectors and keyhole fasteners to properly
wire and align the joining fixtures.
First fixture in run
Open end
Closed end
1
Completely hang the first fixture in the run. One
end should be closed while the other end has
quick-connect wiring. Using two people, hang the
next fixture in the run, making sure to properly
align quick-connectors.
2
Make all wiring connections between fixtures using
the provided quick-connectors.
3
Push the quick-connect assembly and excess
wiring into the open end of one fixture end plate
so only a small length of wire remains between
joining fixtures.
4
Align keyholes with corresponding tabs and push
fixtures together.
5
Shift fixtures until keyhole tabs lock in place and
fixtures are horizontally aligned.
7
Continue to add fixtures as needed to complete
the continuous run.
Note: If there are unused quick-connectors at the
end of a run, cut off the connectors and cap the
ends with wire connectors to terminate the wires.
Replace open end plate with a solid end plate.
6
Install two #8-32 screws with nuts (provided) to
fasten the end plates of the joined fixtures together.
Note: The current though the continuous fixture run
cannot exceed 20A. See maximum fixture run length
listed below.
