This 105-watt low voltage transformer will power your 12-volt lighting systems. Electronic transformers are generally smaller, lighter, quieter, and cooler than magnetic transformers.
Uses: used to power 12-volt AC lighting systems.
Maximum 105 Watts of Load: 105 watts maximum of lighting load. Unlike most magnetic transformers, these electronic transformers can be used to power the maximum wattage. [Caution: Always attach the load to the transformer before connecting the transformer to power.]
Minimum 5 Watts of Load: unless this transformer is powering at least 5 watts of lighting load it will not work properly
Minimum 10 Watts with Dimming: when this transformer is connected to a dimmer, it must be powering at least 10 watts of lighting load or it will not work properly
Input: 120 volts AC, 50/60 Hz, 0.88 amps
Input Leads: one 6-inch white 18 AWG wire (neutral) and one 6-inch black 18 AWG wire (hot)
Output: 11.5 volts AC, 9.13 amps [Caution: a standard AC voltmeter cannot measure the output of a high frequency electronic transformer; instead, a special "true RMS" voltmeter must be used.]
Output Leads: two 6-inch red 18 AWG wires [Suggestion: Use a terminal block for each connection in the 12V output circuit and make certain that these connections are very tight and secure. Also, be sure that the gauge of the electrical wire used in the output circuit is not less than 18 AWG.]
Installation: the transformer and all of the hardwired electrical splices (connections) should be stored in an enclosed metal junction box (not included)
Compact Size: only 4/5in(H) x 1-3/10in(W) x 3in(L)
Lightweight: only 4 oz
Dimmable: fully dimmable using a dimmer designed for an electronic transformer. An electronic transformer can sometimes work with a standard incandescent dimmer. However, to ensure that your lighting system works effectively with the greatest dimming range we recommend that you use a dimmer that was specifically designed to control an electronic low voltage transformer. Additionally, using this type of dimmer will diminish the possibility of an audible hum when the dimmer is used especially at low light levels. [Caution: dimmer should always be connected to the input side, 120V side, of a transformer.]
Short Circuit Protection: yes with auto-reset
Overload Protection: yes with auto-reset
Low Heat: low operating temperature
UL Recognized: UL recognized in USA and Canada
3-Year Warranty: this electronic low voltage transformer carries a 3-year warranty

Works as advertised. The load is only 80W, so this unit is cruising. Heat is not as much a problem as the 300W unit I'm using and reviewed earlier. This unit was located in a 3-gang metal box that will be fitted with a .125 aluminum cover plate for heat sinking - I want the unit to live a long and cool life.
Compact, relatively inexpensive
Special dimmer needed for light level control, which is much more $$$ than the normal dimmer.
