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 halogen or xenon 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
