I have 12 and 24 volt lighting on a large tree. Can I use your transformer and get both 12 and 24 volt power out of the same transformer.

No, it can operate one voltage at a time not both.

Hi ! Happy Holidays!
I am looking for a high capacity transformer, a lot like this one, so I can reliably power a lot more lights than I currently have. 2 Questions: 1.) If I am only running 400 watts, is it more efficient to run a 600 watt transformer, than this big 1200 one? If that is the case I may decide to go for 2 smaller ones. Which leads to question #2: I want to have 2 circuits with separate timers for off/on.
I was thinking I would just control the AC that powers the transformer(s). What do you recommend?
Thank you! Great site!

If you are trying to power a single 400-watt circuit, then a 600-watt magnetic transformer would be best for that circuit.
If you are trying to power TWO 400-watt circuits AND you want those two circuits to have DIFFERENT on/off cycles, then you should use TWO 600-watt transformers and TWO separate timers.
If you are trying to power TWO 400-watt circuits AND you want those two circuits to have the SAME on/off cycles, then you could use ONE 1200-watt transformer and ONE timer.
For the best results, you should try to find a transformer that is designed to accept optional plug-in timers or photocells right inside the transformer cabinet. Unfortunately, we do not offer these types of transformers.
