Okay. I always played it safe, using CAST's sensible recommendations and guidelines, such as 10 gauge cable for hubs beyond 100 feet, etc. Unique and Cast specify max lamp wattage load, and I was wondering if I shouldn't be getting more out of my wire by pushing more toward the max of #12 cable. Using Unique's quick-reference-slider-card, I can see the benefit of higher (17 plus) taps. I assume this is okay, but is this why Unique pushes the fuses at hubs? The only downside I can see for higher taps and pushing toward the max load, is for possible future add-ons at the hub, or if I need to up the wattage from 20 to 35 on a couple fixtures. I'm not trying to be cheap or hazardous, just efficient. I suppose I should do the math for maximum load at my distance (per code), with a margin for a possible add-on or two, or some possible bulb-upgrades. In other words, keep the lamp load below max (192w/#12)(or 16 amps), even with the possible add-ons (e.g. 40 watts). This would mean 152w on #12 might work for a specific application which I feel confident I won't go beyond 40 more watts.
