Track light system consists of two parts

  1. Track
  2. Head

Track: It is of 3 types termed as “H”, “J”, and “L.” They are termed after the names of scientists Halo, Juno, and Lightolier. It is wired to power and holds the conductor for heads. Cross-sectionally, it looks like a square with the center part of one side missing. Straight pieces of tracks are used most commonly. Track lights are hung on the ceiling or wall through this part. The majority of tracks are available in 4 foot or 8-foot length.

The Heads: These are lamp holding fixtures. Each head consists of a piece that connects it to the power inside the track with two metal tabs. Canisters are the most common lightning heads in use. They hold one reflector light bulb that throws light where you need it. For each head, a small built-in transformer is needed to operate it.
