About our 200 Watt - 12 Volt - Hardwire - Electronic Transformer - Lightech

This step-down transformer from Lightech converts 120 volts down to 12 volts and is usable in many low-voltage applications. It can handle a minimum load of 50 watts and a maximum load of 200 watts. It features short circuit and overload protection, as well as a thermal cut-off to prevent overheating.

  • Uses: used to power 12-volt AC lighting systems.
  • Maximum 200 Watts of Load: 200 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 50 Watts of Load: unless this transformer is powering at least 50 watts of lighting load it will not work properly.
  • Input: 120 volts AC, 60 Hz, 1.7 amps
  • Input Wires: one white and one black 18AWG 8-inch wires
  • Output: 11.7 volts AC, 29kHz, 17 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 Wires: two blue 14AWG 8-inch wires
  • Dimensions: 1.3in(H) x 1.6in(W) x 4.3in(L)
  • 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.]
  • Power Factor: 0.98
  • Short Circuit and Overload Protection: yes, with electronic auto-reset
  • Auto Reset: yes with thermal cut-off at 125°C
  • Casing: aluminum

Questions & Answers
By Roger from Lewisville, TX on August 19, 2014
Can I use this transformer to power low voltage outdoor landscape lighting? I want to mount the transformer in my garage. You can not mount Landscape light transformers indoors because they heat up too much. The run of outdoor lights totals less than 160 watts.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on August 19, 2014

Roger, electronic transformers are generally not used for landscape lighting because of the especially long runs of cable between the transformer and lights. This length often results in a problem known as voltage drop where the voltage reaching the lights is less than the needed 12 or 24V. For that reason it's best to use magnetic transformers that have some sort of boost tap or multi-tap feature to compensate for voltage drop.
