TEMPEST TORCHES AND LANTERNS

INSTALLATION GUIDE

Prior to installing your electronic Tempest Torches, it's important to consider the number of torches that will be run to each transformer, how they will be wired (direct vs. daisy-chain) and, the distance that you will need to run wire. All of these factors affect the wire gauge required for your installation. While this page includes a high-level explanation of the installation process, please ensure to download and read the full installation guide prior to install.

The following information is only relevant to torches with electronic ignition, not those with manual ignition. Please download the full guide for details.

POLARITY MUST BE MAINTAINED IN ALL MULTIPLE TORCH INSTALLATIONS. FAILURE TO MAINTAIN POLARITY WILL RESULT IN DAMAGE TO THE CONTROL MODULE.

WIRING OPTIONS

You have multiple options when considering how to wire your Tempest Torches, transformers, and switches. Multiple 24VAC transformers may be wired to a single switch, and multiple torches may be wired to one transformer. The manner in which you wire the torches to the transformer affects the maximum length of wire and wire gauge.

Direct-Run Diagram

DIRECT-RUN

This type of wire configuration allows for long distances between the transformer and the torch. Find the length between your torches and the transformer, then reference the installation guide to find the correct wire gauge for your project.

Daisy-Chain Diagram

DAISY-CHAIN

This type of wire configuration allows for torches to be wired in a series, reducing the amount of wire used. When calculating wire length, add together all of the wire length(s) used for the entire installation, and use this total to find the correct wire gauge in the chart.

Make sure to determine the wire configuration before installation, using the installation guide PDF.
