    Default Cabinet track lighting

    Kitchen in a Condo/hotel room with track lighting under kitchen cabinets. Built in 08. Does this junction or splice need to be in a box.

    Yes. Any 110 wiring splices should be in a junction box.

    Are the lights 120v or LV? That looks like it might be a splice block that some manufacturers use.

    I think they are LV and i could not tell the block was wrapped in tape.

    Is that not a transformer in the first picture?

    That would be nice! This is what you report as a "Temporary" connection.

    It is low voltage lighting, so either 12 or 24 volts. Are we still worried about those connections?

    Low voltage or not, whats the differance?
    Those wires look to be feeding the transformer (120vac), therefore the taped connection is wrong.

    No, they are the leads from the tranny to the lights. The heavier wire can carry more current without getting hot. Is there a shock hazard? Fire hazard?

    I was just working on the wiring for tailights on my utility trailer. Tape's OK for that. Low voltage and not much current.

    You can get a nasty shock from a 12 v car battery, but you have to work at it to get the full whammy of current. You need to be standing in salt water and then with wet hands, reach into a boat and twist both battery terminals.
