    Does anyone have photos of their layout with power injection connections? For my 2013 plans I understand where I need to inject power, but I am looking for some sample photos of what people are using for the power injection connections. I making a shopping list and trying to decide how I want to do the connections.

    A lot of us have standardised on using the waterproof connectors from Ray (and other suppliers) for as many of our connections as possible, as it makes setup nice and easy.

    As an example, if you have 5 strips/strings of 2811 lights that you were going to put in one big line. A good idea is to put a 3 core connector at the start and end of each strip (a male at the start, female at the end) You could then (if no power injection required) connect up all 5 strips in one big line..

    For Power Injection, I then make up a connector (see the link above for a quick photo) that has 2x 3-core connectors (one male, one female), as well as a 2-core male connector. This connector can then be put inline between the two strips that you want to inject power, and I then have a 2-core power cable with a 2-core female connector on it, that runs back to the power supply

    Hope that makes sense!
