Hello,


This question is more about understanding. I realize with LED undercabinet Driver (transformer) power is 1st run to switch and then onto Driver. Post Driver is low-voltage LED wire (typically 18 AWG).

I would not run it any other way, but I do have a situation where under the sink my low-voltage line crosses w/in 1 inch of a 12-2 romex 120V. Will this interfere with LED performance (i.e. flickering or something else due to electromagnetic interference)?

Thinking about protecting it with 1/2" PVC, but this may be overkill.

I wouldn't even worry about it. Besides, non metallic conduit like PVC won't protect against EMF or induced voltage. Metallic flex would work better.

I don't think that is an issue at all.
