Im looking at some elevated open air pergola like applications that will have distances of anywhere from 50-100 feet. Running multiple wires is an option I suppose, but I would prefer not if another option is on the table.
I could be wrong, but you shouldn't need multiple drivers.... only multiple runs from the driver providing that the rectifier is large enough to handle the total load. As with most strip/tape/channel lighting, the wire is very small which creates too much resistance/heat. This is why the runs are limited.
Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
