Ceiling Insulation: fixture is UL approved for use in non-insulated ceilings. This fixture may be used in an insulated ceiling but only if all insulation is kept at least 3 inches away from all outside surfaces of the housing.
Downlight Only: has been UL tested and approved only as a downlight. If this fixture were to be used as an uplight, the air flow and heat dissipation may cause the fixture to overheat and, at the very least, will cause the lamp to burn out prematurely.
Complete Fixture: supplied with cast aluminum trim, clear glass lens with retaining ring, low-profile housing, halogen socket with 18in leads, and thermal control protection to prevent the fixture from overheating
Light Bulb: uses a 12-volt MR11 low voltage halogen light bulb (ordered separately in the Accessories tab).
Light Bulb Wattage: maximum of 20 watts
Transformers: uses 12-volt electronic transformer. (Transformer must be ordered separately.) The appropriate 12V electronic transformer may be ordered in the Accessories tab.
Transformer Wattages: our 150W electronic transformers can power 3-6 20-watt mini recessed lights; depending on the transformer some of our 300W electronic transformers can power 3-15 20-watt mini recessed lights while some of our other 300W electronic transformers can power 2-15 20-watt mini recessed lights. [Caution: Some of our electronic transformers will not operate properly unless they power at least 50 watts of lighting load and some will not operate properly unless they power at least 35 watts of lighting load.]
Multi-Tap Connectors: multi-tap connectors provide an easy method to wire multiple fixtures to one electronic transformer. Multi-tap connectors come in two sizes; one connector (PNM-143) can accommodate up to 3 fixtures while the other connector (PNM-146) can accommodate up to 6 fixtures. Please order the multi-tap connectors in the Accessories tab.
Dimmability: fixtures may be dimmed by connecting a dimmer to the LINE voltage side (primary side) of the transformer
Dimmers: uses a dimmer designed for a low voltage electronic transformer. (Dimmer and Transformer must be ordered separately.) For a complete description of the dimmers that are specifically designed to control a low voltage electronic transformer please click on Dimmers for Electronic Low Voltage Lighting Systems.
Easy to Install: please refer to these Installation Instructions (PDF). Always check local electrical codes and the National Electrical Code (NEC) before installing any lighting products. It is also wise to consult with a licensed electrician in your geographical area about any electrical details that you might have questions about and to make certain that you are satisfying all of the appropriate electrical codes

I am installing new kitchen cabinets, 3 of which have glass doors. I am interested in your PNM-243 miniature lights.
Can you tell me what all I need transformers etc, and also tell me how to wire them?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on May 6, 2013
Thanks for the question.
In addition to the PNM-243, you will need to order 20W halogen MR11 light bulbs and an appropriate transformer.
To determine the transformer you need, simply multiply the lights you intend to power by 20W.
For example, if you intend to power 3 lights, you will need a transformer rated for 60W.
I would also recommend ordering a multi-tap connector to make installation easier.
All of these items are listed on the Accessories tab of the product page.

I was buying them for someone else so I don't have any feedback on the performance of the lights, but based on what I've seen elsewhere this is a good price. Their web site and shipping was efficient and I received everything on time and as promised.
