Is this product designed to be placed indoors (a garage) to power landscape lighting? If not this product, do you have a product with 300-watt with multi tap that can be housed inside?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on July 23, 2012
Yes, this transformer can be used to power landscape lighting since you are placing it indoors.

Can this transformer support a low voltage cable lighting systems that use cables suspended between walls to support and power halogen low voltage light fixtures hanging from the cables?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on January 18, 2013
Since this transformer has a multi-tap, allowing it to compensate for voltage drop, I think it should work with a low voltage cable system.
