The Lightech 60-watt 12-volt electronic low voltage transformer is designed to power low voltage lighting systems. It powers a minimum of 10 watts without a connected dimmer. This transformer features short-circuit protection and a thermal cut-off.
Uses: used to power 12-volt halogen or xenon lighting systems.
Maximum 60 Watts of Load: 60 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 Load: the minimum load without a dimmer is 10 watts; 20 watts with a dimmer. Unless this transformer is powering at least 10 watts of lighting load it will not work properly
Input: 120 volts AC, 60 Hz
Output: 11.75 volts AC, 40kHz [Caution: a standard AC voltmeter cannot measure the output of a high frequency electronic transformer; instead, a special "true RMS" voltmeter must be used.]
Input Wires: one white and one black 18AWG 6-inch wires
Output Wires: two blue 14AWG 6-inch wires
Dimensions: 6.5in(H) x 1.5in(W) x 1-3/8in(L)
Power Cord Available: 8-foot power cord with 3-prong plug and cable connector is available for converting this transformer to a plug-in model.
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: 0.95
Short Circuit Protection: yes, with electronic auto-reset
Thermal Cut-Off: yes, auto-reset at 125°C. Automatically acts as overload protection.
