This 60-watt low voltage electronic transformer will power your 12-volt halogen or xenon lighting systems. Electronic transformers are generally smaller, lighter, quieter, and cooler than magnetic transformers.
Uses: used to power 12-volt halogen or 12-volt 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 10 Watts of Load: unless this transformer is powering at least 10 watts of lighting load it will not work properly
Input: 120 volts AC, 50/60 Hz, 0.63 amps
Input Leads: one white 18 AWG wire (neutral) and one black 18 AWG wire (hot)
Output: 11.5 volts AC, 6.25 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 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 7/8in(H) x 1.25in(W) x 3.0in(L)
Lightweight: only 2.6 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
1-Year Warranty: this electronic low voltage transformer carries a 1-year warranty
