I want to do a "L' design with a 7' tack on one leg , a 90 degree connector and a 4' track. I will be using a floating canopy. I know that Juno track can be cut.
On another area, are Hampton Bay lo-vo fixture or halogen fixtures adaptable on a existing Juno track.
Thank you

Yes you can cut the sections to the desired length, but you need to also cut the plastic slides and conductors to the proper length (which is shorter than the metal channel).
If you look at the 8' section you will notice that there is a plastic runner on each side. These runners hold the copper conductors. You should also noticed that one plastic runner has two conductors and the other has one Read More
Yes you can cut the sections to the desired length, but you need to also cut the plastic slides and conductors to the proper length (which is shorter than the metal channel).
If you look at the 8' section you will notice that there is a plastic runner on each side. These runners hold the copper conductors. You should also noticed that one plastic runner has two conductors and the other has one conduction. If you look carefully at the 8' section you will notice that the plastic runner is about a half inch shorter on each end than the metal channel.
You will also notice that the plastic runners slide inside the metal channel. So if you attempt to plug in the 90 degree connector into one end of the 8' track, the plastic runners will slide down the metal channel and stick out the other end. In many cases the plascit runners will slide so that the 90 degree connector does not make electrical connection with the conductors inside the runners.
To avoid this problem, I would do the following.
1) Push the plastic runner down the metal channel until it is flush with one end of the metal channel. Measure how much shorter the plastic runners is than the metal channel (for example 1"). Divide that measurement by half (for example 1/2"). That is the set back that you want to have at each end after you cut the metal channel and the plasctic runner.
2) Cut the metal channel to the desired length. Slide the plastic runners (with the electiral conductors ) out one end of the metal channel. Cut the plastic runner so that it is same amount shorter (e.g. 1") that it was before. Slide the plastic runner back into the metal channel and double check that you have the desired set back on the lenght of the plasctic runner with respect to the metal channel.
3) The next step is very important. To install the 90 degree connector, first pull the plactic runners several inches beyond the end of the metal channel. Position the plastic runners on each side fo the 90 degree connector and make sure that the metal tangs on the connector are positioned over the copper conductors. (Make sure that you have the 90 degree connector positioned so that the side of the connector that has two metal tangs is on the side of the track that has the plasctic runner with two conductors. If not flip over the 90 degree connector.) Once the plastic runners are properly positioned on each side of the 90 degree connector, slide the metal channel over the plastic runners to lock them in position.
4) Insert the plastic cap into the other end of the track. Read Less

Hey Lightman,
I've seen older Juno tracks that are NOT compatible with Hampton Bay track lights, and vice versa. However, you can still attempt to see for yourself if they are compatible.
As for cutting it down, yes it is possible. Just make sure the end is removed first via a screwdriver. I'd recommend to cut it using a mitre box and a good hacksaw so the metal is cut smoothly.

You may have to deburr it up a bit before placing the end back on it with a file.

The light source for this says "halogen" but then in the directions it says it's compatible with any Hampton Bay EC and H series (which is also LED's)....very confusing.

Answer: 
It can go up to 2400 watts. If you have a lot of lights, I'd recommend LEDs. As far as actual number of maximum track lights, I have 12 on a track and I could probably easily fit 3 times that amount, albeit crowded at that point.

Answer: 
Excellent question because the product overview and product specifications do not mention the capacity of the track. However the 4 FT track and of some of the track connectors are rated at 2400 watts. So I would assume that the 8 FT track is also rated for 2400 Watts. Note that 2400 Watts at 120 Volts is 20 Amps which is typically the largest amperage 120 Volt circuits for residential wiring. Assuming Read More
Excellent question because the product overview and product specifications do not mention the capacity of the track. However the 4 FT track and of some of the track connectors are rated at 2400 watts. So I would assume that the 8 FT track is also rated for 2400 Watts. Note that 2400 Watts at 120 Volts is 20 Amps which is typically the largest amperage 120 Volt circuits for residential wiring. Assuming you are using 60 Watt Bulbs the track will theoretically support 40 bulbs. on a 20 Amp circuit but only 30 bulbs if the track is on a 15 Amp circuit. Note that the above calculations assume that there are no other lights or appliances on the circuit and this provides no margin of safety.
Personal I would not put more than 30 60 Watt bulbs (1800 Watts 15 Amps) on a 20 Amp Circuit and not more than 20 60 Watt bulbs (1200 Watts 10 Amps) on a 15 Amp circuit.
Note if you are connecting multiple track sections together the track that connects to the power source will carry the current for all of the light fixtures. So you need to be sure that the total power draw of all fixtures is below the recommendations above. Read Less

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good, efficient lighting. Bought two - for the kitchen and the paneled attic/rec room. They're gorgeous. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LED compatible It took less than an hour for the electrician to install two 8 foot section. These worked fine with 23 LED track lights and a dimmer. June 24, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Poorly designed We spent at least two hours longer than we should have installing and troubleshooting the track. We got it all up in place and tested by putting in one of the track lights. No light. Tried a different bulb and a different light. No light. Tested all of the connections with volt meter, and everything seemed OK. Finally pulled it down from the ceiling, and noticed that when you push the power feed in to the track, the contact blade pushes the internal conducting wire instead of riding up on the wire, making a completed circuit. After the track is installed and the feed attached, you must go to the opposite end of the track, and push the plastic that the wires are embedded in towards the power feed to complete the circuit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by replacement track for a smaller one Easy to assemble arrived sooner than expected at the store April 28, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mounting is not the best Used this with lamps and power feed from a 3 light kit. Two issues: 1) The floating power feed is not set up to go on a box that has the screws aligned with the track direction, an adapter plate was needed to make it work. 2) the mounting is not all that sturdy. There are only 3 mounting holes in the track, and the center one fell right on the electrical box, so only two could be used the hold the track to the ceiling. The ceiling is sloped and the track tends to twist with the weight of the lights. Additional mounting screws and/or a heavier gauge track are needed. It comes with a set of 3 moly anchors and 3 toggle bolts. The moly anchors are not strong enough to support the track with lights on it. The toggle bolts will work, but lose the toggle if you have to take the track back off after putting the bolt up. I ended up using heavier screw type anchors. January 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Track Lights The product is easy to install and comes with everything you need. The track is decent quality and the fixtures are adjustable (fixtures sold separately). It was what I expected. February 25, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not for novices This product would appear to be a simple plug together installation. However you really need to know what you are doing especially if you are going to connect multiple sections with straight connectors or elbow connectors. I installed 4 pieces of track, an elbow connector, a "T" connector and a straight connector. It worked fine for a while and then some of the track sections lost power. I worked on the track for several hours before I figure out the problem. Inside the tracks, the eletrical conductors are mounted in plastic runners that SLIDE inside the steel channel. When you attemp to plug a connetor or elbow in one end, the runners and conductors slide down the channel leaving you with no connection or and intermittent connection. The only way I could get the track to work reliably was to pull the plastic runner with the conductors out the end of the metal channel. Then I properly positioned the runners and conductors on each side of the connector or elbow and then slide the metal channel into place. I would strongly suggest that the manufacture mount the plastic runners to the metal channel so that this problem would be avoided. December 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Linear Track for Track Lighting Very easy installation. Love the ability to add pretty much as many lights as I want. November 11, 2014
