Client has a 24volt led recessed lighting. I am using class 2 wires from the secondary on the transformer, because it is low voltage I can just leave the wire as is, ie the rubber/plastic insulation may be exposed with in the walls and ceilings. Is this true?
The wire voltage rating just needs to meet the system I am applying it to correct? If the system is 24volts, then the rated wire must only meet it's operating voltage. Sec 725.179G says wire shall not be rated less then 150. Is there any reason why it would need to be rated for more, being that my operating voltages are well under that? Is there something I am missing here? Any recommendations, besides jumping off a bridge, would be really appreciated.

If the power supply is listed Class 2 and 725 is satisfied, you should be fine.
K thanks. We don't have much experience with low voltage lighting with remote transformers. So I wanted to be completely sure.

Forgot to mention it is remote transformer, same rules should still apply.
