About our 80 Watt - 12 Volt - 277 Volt Input - Hardwire - Electronic Transformer - Hatch
Description

This 80-watt low voltage electronic transformer will power your 12-volt lighting systems when the input voltage is 277 volts. Electronic transformers are generally smaller, lighter, quieter, and cooler than magnetic transformers.

  • Uses: used to power 12-volt AC lighting systems.
  • Maximum 80 Watts of Load: 80 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
  • Minimum 20 Watts with Dimming: when this transformer is connected to a dimmer, it must be powering at least 20 watts of lighting load or it will not work properly
  • Input: 277 volts AC, 50/60 Hz, 0.29 amps
  • Input Leads: one white 18 AWG wire (neutral) and one black 18 AWG wire (hot)
  • Output: 11.5 volts AC, 7.00 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 0.75in(H) x 1.25in(W) x 2.2in(L)
  • Lightweight: only 2.4 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, 277V 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
  • Brand: Hatch
  • 3-Year Warranty: this electronic low voltage transformer carries a 3-year warranty

Questions & Answers
By Jeff from Glendale, AZ 85306 on October 22, 2012
Hello, my question is will this work in a seal junction box outdoors? I would like it to power a Kitchler LED up light (total wattage is 14 watts). We are trying to retro-fit some old well lights. There is a separate enclosure next to the lamp well.
Thank You for your time!

Answer:
Jeff,

This transformer is not rated for outdoor use.
