This 60-watt 12-volt AC electronic plug-in transformer, available with a detachable cord, will power your 12-volt lighting systems.

  • 1 Model:
    Model #PETP-60 has a polarized plug on the transformer with a detachable 8ft cord
  • Uses: used to power 12-volt AC lighting systems.
  • Maximum 60 Watts of Load: 60 watts maximum of lighting load. Unlike most magnetic transformers, this electronic transformer can be used to power the maximum wattage.[Caution: Always attach the load to the transformer before connecting the transformer to power.]
  • Minimum 20 Watts of Load: unless this transformer is powering at least 20 watts of lighting load it will not work properly
  • Input: 120 volts AC, 60 Hz, 0.5 amps
  • Output:
    #PETP-60: 12 volts AC, >20 kHz, 5.0 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.]
  • Short Circuit Protection: yes with auto-reset
  • Overload Protection: yes with auto-reset
  • Dimmable: dimmable on the input side only (120V side) using a dimmer designed for an electronic low voltage transformer. [Caution: This plug-in electronic transformer is dimmable if it is plugged into one of the two sockets of a dual wall receptacle, for which only that socket is controlled by a dimmer switch. This will leave the other socket available with full power for other electrical appliances like toasters, mixers, TVs, and electric knives.]

Perfect Plug-In
February 3, 2014
I purchased this to replace a factory installed unit in a glass display unit. The removable cord was very handy.
Well made.
The website should show a picture of the unit with the cord removed so the connector can be seen.

Exactly what I needed

I have a designer floor lamp and tried several other suppliers to assist in a replacement for the transformer and wire without success. Pegasus had the product which was shipped immediately and the product worked.

12 volt transformer disaster
November 18, 2011
This 12 volt transformer that is supposed to produce 12 volts actually puts out about 6 volts. Pegasus refused to refund or replace. BEWARE!!! I tried to rate with zero stars but it thought I forgot to select. Had to pick one.
Merchant Response:
I spoke with this customer over the phone right after receiving this product review. Unfortunately, it seems that the transformer he received was defective since it was not outputting 12 volts. We are shipping him a replacement transformer at no charge and including an additional transformer at no charge to ensure he gets one that will work for his project. Pegasus Lighting stands behind the products that we sell and when there is an issue like this we replace defective items. Thankfully, it is a rare occurrence, but it does sometimes happen. Just a fact of life. When this customer called us originally to communicate to us that the transformer was not working to spec we could have done a better job communicating to him that we would work with him to replace the transformer. I appreciate Steve telling me about this issue and it will be resolved. Chris Johnson, VP, Pegasus Lighting
A piece of junk.

Questions & Answers
By Chad from Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada on August 1, 2012
I am looking for a transformer such as this for my existing deck light system that I have recently added a few lights to and exceeded the capacity of my existing transformer. I have a photocell already so this transformer would fit the bill for what I need. The only question I have is if this transformer will work with an LED lighting system. I see in the description that it works with halogen and xenon lights however it does not mention LED. Please let me know, thank you.
By Chris at Pegasus Lighting on August 2, 2012


This transformer is not designed to work with LEDs. You probably need an LED driver, but you should contact the manufacturer of LED deck lights to determine the appropriate power supply necessary for your system.

By Dave from Philadelphia, PA on December 22, 2012
Can this be used for an outdoor lighting system if it is plugged into a covered GFI outlet?

By Tom from Pegasus Lighting on December 24, 2012


This 60W 12V Electronic Plug-In Transformer is intended to be used indoors. Will it work outdoors? Probably for awhile but it should NOT be used outdoors. Electrical products that are intended to be used outdoors are manufactured to much different standards and specifications. They must be engineered and designed to take into account constant changes in their environment such as dust, dew, frost, driving rain, small animals, prolonged rain, possible submersion in water, snow, ice, etc. Pegasus Lighting is, of course, taking a safe, conservative approach to your using electricity outdoors. We would encourage you to consult with an experienced licensed electrician in your area as well.

How do you know which wire is which or does it not matter?
They aren't labeled and no wiring instructions included.
I am using it to replace a failed transformer on a halogen lamp.

By Ila from Pegasus Lighting on July 3, 2014

The wires are not polarized, so it would not matter. Just connect each group of wires directly to the fixture wire(s).
By Robert from Fox Point, WI on July 4, 2014

It doesn't matter. Either of the transformer wires can be connected to either of the lamp wires.

By William from Louisville, KY on April 30, 2013
How many leads are enclosed in the detachable cable? I'm looking to replace a Wang WH-501EC transformer that has a three pin connector that attaches the wire to the transformer.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on May 1, 2013

There are 2 leads in the cord.
By Robert from Denver, CO on December 26, 2013

The Wang 501 EC has 3 wires, one as an 8.3 v output for lower intensity (30 watts,) one for 12 volts for the 60 watt connection and a third for the common. The switch on your lamp probably has 3 positions - an off, a low light and a high light position. The Wang wh-601 will only output 12v and has only 2 leads. You may be able to only use the high light output with the wh-601. I don't know why there are three leads on the plug as the wh-601 has no connection for the third plug.
