We're having a hypothetical debate in the studio this morning around the concept of Jumbo lights (wiring 28V ACL lights in a series). We're not electrics so we won't be wiring anything ourselves but had a question about the concept.
Assume we have 4 x 28V/600W ACL bulbs wired in a series. We'll end up with 112V and 2400-ish Watts, which is 21.4 Amps. Not powerable by a 20 Amp household circuit.
Is my electrical knowledge correct, here? Thoughts? Voltage and Watts add up in a series. Then Watts divided by Voltage to get Amperage.
More like 2400w/120v=20a. I don't think you're going to meter less than 120V anywhere (USA) even under load. Not even in Harlem, NYC in the Summer. A 20a breaker doesn't trip at exactly 20.001 amperes. Why don't you try your 4 bulb ACL setup in a see how long it takes the breaker to trip. If you think you are going to run your light on the end of a 100 foot stinger, then all bets are off.
