I everyone Question My shop has a 200 amp main. I need to hang rows of lights. Each light is 120/240 ok I figure this means I can run 220 to the light then attach another then another in series .Ok on a 30 amp breaker can I run 4 lights with no problem? Using 10/2 wire. Also what would be the max lights I could run in one row? Appreciate your input, I'm a disabled vet that does not want to fry lol thanks

How longs the run from the dis board to the line of fittings, AWG10 is 6mm fair size to get into a light fitting

Sorry, but we can't comment on how electrical work is done in America.

Erring on the side of caution. Get help.
Not too sure what you mean connecting two in series? If it's what I think I wouldn't. Might be best to find a local sparky to help you out. If as I suspect you're in the USA not much point asking people the other side of the planet for local regulations.
