So last night I decided to spend an hour two building the housing for our under layout lighting.
Because the underneath portion of the layout will be used for storage and eventually some staging I wanted to install some LED's under it so that as I'm wiring and installing the signals & detections its already in and running.
My folks got me a 75W transformer and two 5 metre (16.5') strings of LED's. Because the transformer has screw connections on the 240V active that could be touched I wanted to place it in an enclosure.
The case is a plastic electronics case from Jaycar, it hold the transformer with enough room to get the wiring in and allow for ventilation around the edges.
The case has a sealed lid but I actually cut out the opening to the same dimensions as the transformer making sure the wiring connections were covered.
Quick test to ensure everything is wired correctly and working... These LED's are very bright.
Case lid cut out and installed and ready to be placed under the layout...
