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.

Hey Tim, are you planning on posting your 'letter to the trades' here that explains your relationship with Alan B. And VOLT lighting? It might be worthwhile considering...

Tim,
Please don't respond to this nonsense. Whatever you do/did/will do is your business and this rudeness and blatant display of disrespect for a fellow contractor is uncalled for, nor is it necessary. Furthermore, it will open up dialogue in which I will inevitably become involved in just because it simply pisses me off and I will certainly regret it.

Thanks in advance for helping me out.
