About our 120 Watt - 12 Volt - Plug-In - Electronic Transformer - Remote Mount - American Lighting
This 2-circuit low voltage electronic plug-in transformer will power your 12-volt lighting systems and can be conveniently stored away from the power receptacle and the installation. Electronic transformers are generally smaller, lighter, quieter, and cooler than magnetic transformers.
- Uses: used to power 12-volt AC lighting systems.
- Designed for 2 Separate Circuits: this transformer has 2 sets of output leads, which allow for 2 separate 60-watt circuits (one pair of output leads is used for each circuit)
- Remote Mount: includes mounting accessories for remote mount installation. The transformer can be stored a short distance from the installation and the power receptacle, adding flexibility to where you would like to store the transformer.
- 8-Foot Power Cord: 8-foot 18 AWG power cord with inline roller switch
- Maximum 120 Watts of Load: 120 watts maximum of lighting load (60 watts per installation). 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 40 Watts of Load: unless this transformer is powering at least 40 watts of lighting load (20 watts per installation) it will not work properly
- Input: 120 volts AC, 50/60 Hz, 1.0 amps
- Output: 11.5 volts AC, 5.0 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: 24-inch 18 AWG leads with connector blocks
- Dimensions: only 1-3/16in(H) x 1.75in(W) x 6.75in(L)
- Dimmable: dimmable on the input side only (120V side) using a dimmer designed for an electronic low voltage transformer. [Caution: This plug-in electronic transformer is dimmable if its cord & plug set is plugged into one of the two sockets of a dual wall receptacle, for which only that socket is controlled by a dimmer switch. This will leave the other socket available with full power for other electrical appliances like toasters, mixers, TVs, and electric knives.]
- Thermal Protection: yes with auto-reset
- Color: black
- UL Listed: UL Listed in USA and Canada
- 2-Year Warranty: this electronic low voltage transformer carries a 2-year warranty

We had 10 under cabinet lights to install and couldn't quite figure out how we were going to get them all working with minimal transformers. These did the trick!

Will this power the 16.4ft flexible LED light tape?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on March 13, 2013
No, it will not.
Our LED tape light requires a constant voltage driver.
I would recommend checking the Accessories tab of the LED tape light you are interested in purchasing. There will be a selection of compatible drivers.

I have 6 under cabinet lights that are 10 watts 12 volts each for a total of 60 watts. The lights are wired in sets of three and previously were powered by two class II transformers. Both of these transformers have failed. Should I purchase the transformer that is capable of handling 120 watts divided in two or can I use the smaller transformer capable of handling 60 watts maximum?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on February 25, 2014
You only need a transformer capable of powering 60W. However, it sounds like since you have two separate circuits that it would not require any rewiring if you were to use this 120W transformer that has two separate circuits.

We have 6 deck lights that use low voltage bulbs. Our electrician said we need a plug in 120 volt to 12 volt transformer but not sure total watts. I think it would be 66 watts as each bulb is 11w. Is this the correct product to buy?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on November 26, 2014
Yes, this transformer will step down your voltage from 120V to 12V and it can handle a total of 120W. Since 66W is less than 120W, you are good with the total wattage.
My only concern is that this is an indoor transformer. The transformer should not be installed outdoors.
By Michael from Centennial, CO on November 26, 2014
Answer:Yes it is wattage wise. You'll need to make sure that the lights have two different wire feeds though. This transformer has two 60 watt outputs that together make 120 watts. If there is only one wire you will need to purchase a different transformer. You may consider a landscape transformer (a little bigger in size) as they have plug-ins and higher wattage outputs.

Can I use these to power 15 Watt, 12 volt incandescent light bulbs?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on November 26, 2013
Answer:Yes, it can power 12-volt incandescent light bulbs. Please note that the maximum wattage is 120W, so if your light bulbs are 15W each, then you can power a total of 8 light bulbs.
