Anybody know who, if any, manufacturer makes a LV post fixture? I seem to remember Kichler had one years ago but I can't find any reference to that now

You can use any 110 line voltage fixture and just run 12v lamps. I tend to use candelabra base sockets more often. Cascade is who I get the lamps from.

My question to you is who does not make a LV post fixture? I think almost every single manufacturer I have ever seen have a fixture designed to mount to a post. Some more application details might be helpful.

I'm looking for a post lamp fixture that would match the path/spots/wash lights in finish and design

Ok. Perhaps you would now tell us what paths spots and floods you are trying to match! We are pretty good, but not mind readers

Job is not started yet, just looking for overall options and whether I can just order a match or not.

Wow talk about a break down in communication!

Mataman: Almost every single LV Lighting manufacturer out there makes some form of fixture for mounting on posts. What specifically are you looking for?

Kichler actually make a couple of lines of post lights that match the details in some of their path lights. Other companies like Nightscaping keep the design elements simple and clean, lending themselves to be blended into systems that have similar fixture styles.

Do some more looking on your own and you are sure to find what you need.

I go through my Vista book, FX book, and not until I get to my Kichler book do I fully understand our communication breakdown.
I'm looking for the type of post light that would go by the street or at the end of your drive way. When I say post light, I mean the post and lantern (typically round post) with lantern on top but I assume you're thinking just lantern, ie., fixture that goes on the top of a 4x4.

Now we understand better. A "post light" is what I typically think of as mounting to a deck or rail post. 4x4 or 6x6, wood or aluminum. What you are looking for is a post top coach light!

I think you will have trouble finding many that are specifically designed to be powered by LV transformers. You might consider simply using socket converters and wiring a 120V fixture with 12V (check your local codes for approvals) OR you could look to a company like SPJ who have the ability to produce matching products based on your specifications.

The other alternative is to use a std. 120v post top mounted coach light and install a UPB dimming control at the switch location, thus reducing the output to one that compliments the LV outdoor lighting system.

Yes its very simple. Thats why I was so confused to matamans question. I just send my client to lighting showroom to pick their fixtures of choice. The only manu I use and carry are maxxim. And they are kind of ummm mid grade at best.

If and when you 'covert' a 120V fixture over to 12v lamps and circuit you really should take a moment and label the feed wire at the junction point to indicate that this is now a 12V fixture.
