Description of 150-Watt 24-Volt Electronic Low Voltage AC Transformer
This 150-watt 24-volt AC electronic transformer, made by Lightech, is backed by a 4-year warranty. It is fully dimmable and designed to power 12-volt halogen or xenon lighting systems.
Uses: may be used to power 24-volt halogen or 24-volt xenon lighting systems [Caution: If a 24V transformer is used to power 12V light bulbs, the lamps will burn out immediately. A 24V transformer should be used only with light bulbs that are designed for 24 volts. Not recommended for low voltage cable lighting systems that use cables suspended between walls to support and power decorative low voltage light fixtures hanging from the cables.]
Maximum 150 Watts of Load: 150 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: if this transformer does not have a minimum of 50 watts of lighting load, it will not operate
Input Specs: 120 volts AC, 60 Hz, 1.25 amps
Input Wires: use the black and white wires on the transformer for input
Output Specs: 23.4 volts AC, 30 kHz, 6.3 amps
Output Wires:use the purple wires on the transformer for output. Use a terminal block for each connection in the 24V 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 12 AWG.
Measuring Output Voltage: a standard AC voltmeter cannot measure the output of a high frequency electronic transformer; instead, a special "true RMS" voltmeter must be used
Metal Case: includes a metal case in which electrical splices (connections) may be stored when this transformer is hardwired to power. This unit does not come with a cord & plug set but one can be added in the field.
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. See Accessories tab to purchase.
Case Dimensions: 1-3/8in(H) x 1.5in(W) x 6.5in(L)
Weight: 14 oz
Short Circuit Protection: yes with auto-reset
Overload Protection: yes with auto-reset
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.]
UL Recognized Component: UL recognized in USA and Canada
3-Year Warranty: this electronic low voltage transformer carries a 3-year warranty
