I ensure that the transformer and anything attached to a structure are UL.

Have you checked with your local/regional authorities about this? Have you asked an electrical inspector if the fixtures you use in your systems are supposed to be listed? How about your insurance company... Have you asked them about your coverage when installing electrical products that do not have listings?

BUMP.

Only 7 people have participated in the 'survey', but hundreds of views? How about a few more responses on this one guys?

Transformers and any timers/automation is all ul or etl listed. I think the last time I used a non ul listed fixture was in 2008ish when the integrals werent listed. They might be now idk havent used any in a few years.

Also maybe cm610s might not be listed. But doesn't concern me as they are outside attached to trees. All of my main runs are double fused anyway. So if the job isnt being inspected then I dont think it matters to me. When the breaker is 25amp and we individuality fuse every home run in the trans it lets me sleep pretty easy. Plus some of the ul testing is a joke anyway James. I know you across the border boys have more strict standards...... Dont remember the last time I saw a copper spotlight fixture rated for more then 50watts in Canada. Well at least the commonly sold ones.

Btw only responded because you seem a little upset about the lack of contribution from forum members....... Hard to get people to respond around here when so many things go deleted.
