In the no main lights design, the arrangement of lights is especially crucial, magnetic track lights can link the ceiling and wall with a strong orientation because of their simple structure, and can increase/decrease the lights at will, with a sense of freshness and DIY design, so magnetic lighting system have become a key element of interior lighting solution, and are loved by lighting designers
What is magnetic track lights?
Magnetic track light is a kind of linear lighting fixture. Although it looks very “black technology”, but in fact, it’s an upgrade of the traditional track lights. It is made of luminaire lamps with conductive sheet and track rails with conductive strip inside, so when led lights and rails connected together by magnets, then power is on.
Before talking about price affecting factors, we should know the detailed components of magnetic track light system first.

2. Magnetic lights
Magnetic light is a lighting system that can be freely matched according to needs. Generally, there are four types: floodlights, grille lights, spotlights, and pendant lights. The floodlights emit light evenly, improving the brightness of the space and offer the basic lighting requirements. The adjustable grille lamp can meet the needs of multi-angle lighting. The spotlight supplies focus lighting because of its adjustable angle, and the pendent light can realize the close-range lighting
3. Power Supply
There are external power supply and built-in power supply. You’d better think about where to put the external power supply before installation, reserve the power cord. Suggest to hide it in the inspection port for easy maintenance. The built-in power supply is directly placed in the track rail, connect to the 220V /110V voltage, quite easy for installation and maintenance.
