About our 1200 Watt - 12 or 24 Volt - Hardwire - Outdoor Magnetic Transformer - TechnoMagnet
Description

This 1200-watt outdoor magnetic transformer will power your 12-volt or 24-volt lighting system. When powering 12-volt systems, this is a 4-circuit transformer. When powering 24-volt systems, this is a 2-circuit transformer. All electrical connections can be conveniently stored in the included metal enclosure.

  • Uses: may be used to power 12-volt or 24-volt lighting systems.
  • Outdoor and Indoor Use: this transformer can be used both indoors and outdoors
  • Designed for Four 12-Volt Circuits: when this outdoor magnetic transformer is powering 12-volt lighting systems, it is a 4-circuit transformer with a maximum load of 240 watts per circuit
  • Designed for Two 24-Volt Circuits: when this outdoor magnetic transformer is powering 24-volt lighting systems, it is a 2-circuit transformer with a maximum load of 480 watts per circuit
  • Maximum Load: 480 watts maximum of lighting load per circuit for 24-volt systems and 240 watts maximum of lighting load per circuit for 12-volt systems. Like most magnetic transformers, these transformers should be used to power about 80% of their wattage rating. [Caution: Always attach the load to the transformer before connecting the transformer to power.]
  • Input: 120 volts AC, 60 Hz, 11 amps
  • Input Leads: 6-inch 18 AWG wires
  • Output: 11.5 volts AC or 23 volts AC
  • Output Leads: 6-inch 12 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 12 AWG.]
  • Installation: the transformer and all of the hardwired electrical splices (connections) can be conveniently stored in the included metal enclosure
  • Metal Enclosure: easy opening case with knock-outs for hardwiring. Powder coated textured paint finish.
  • Case Size: 10-9/32in(H) x 5-5/8in(W) x 6-25/32in(L)
  • Weight: 30 lbs
  • Dimmable: fully dimmable using a dimmer designed for a magnetic transformer. [Caution: dimmer should always be connected to the input side, 120V side, of a transformer.]
  • Thermal Shutdown Protection: yes with manual reset circuit breaker
  • 10 Year Warranty: this transformer carries a 10-year warranty
  • Color: black
  • UL Listed: UL Listed in the USA and Canada

Questions & Answers
By Bob from Oakley Ca. on November 7, 2013
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.


By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on November 8, 2013

Answer:
Bob,

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

By GABREAL FRANKLIN from Santa Cruz, Ca on December 22, 2012
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!

Answer:
Gabreal,

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.
