Question from Larry:
Answer from Pegasus:Larry, I would suggest consulting an electrician to make sure your wiring is up to code. To answer your question, yes, it's possible to wire the pendants that way. It's similar to how puck lights are wired in under cabinet lighting applications.
Question from Paul:
Answer from Pegasus:Paul, I would not recommend an electronic transformer for landscape/hardscape lights because generally speaking there is a great distance between the transformer and the lights. This causes an issue known as voltage drop. Instead I would use a magnetic transformer with either a boost tap or multi-tap feature to compensate for the long runs associated with outdoor lighting.
Question from Gene:
Answer from Pegasus:Gene, it depends on what type of power supply your MR16 LED light bulb uses. Some are compatible with AC transformers but some require the use of a DC driver. If your light bulb is for use with AC transformers than this would be a good item since ti can handle the low wattage load.
Question from Allen:
Answer from Pegasus:Allen, As long as the lights require a 12V transformer and do not exceed 60W, then yes.
Question from Richard Selman:
Answer from Pegasus:Richard, This is one of the biggest issues with LED MR16s, trying to find compatible power supplies. Unfortunately your best bet is to check with the manufacturer of the LED MR16 for the type of power supply to be used with it. It might require a constant voltage LED driver instead of a transformer. My opinion is that it's not the low load causing the LED to fail. If it's overheating then it might be that the LED MR16 lamp is not suitable for installation in a track head.
Question from Steve:
Answer from Pegasus:Steve, It's unlikely that this transformer will work with your LED light strips. Generally LED light strip requires a constant voltage driver NOT a transformer. I would recommend checking with the manufacturer for the exact type of power supply needed.
Question from David:
Answer from Pegasus:David, Generally a hardwire transformer needs to be installed in a junction box in order to safely store all of the wire connections. I would suggest consulting an electrician who is knowledgeable of local codes to help you determine if this is required. Yes, the wires from the input side can be wired to power using wire nuts.
