- One 12-volt electronic transformer is required for powering the recessed light. Be sure to select a transformer with a wattage rating equal to or slightly greater than the total wattage being powered.
- Calculating Total Wattage: to determine the transformer you need, calculate the total wattage rating of your installation by multiplying the number of lights you intend to power by the wattage of the light bulb you intend to use. For example, for 3 lights using 20W MR11 light bulbs, you would need to select a transformer rated for at least 60 watts (3 Recessed Lights x 20W/Recessed Light = 60W).
- MR11 Light Bulb: uses a 12-volt MR11 low voltage halogen light bulb with a maximum of 20 watts.

Question from Meloney:
Answer from Pegasus:Yes you will likely need transformers. Homes in the USA run on 120V whereas these lights run on 12V. The transformer will step down your home's 120V to 12V.
Question from Mikelle:
Answer from Pegasus:LED MR11 light bulbs should fit but it must be suitable for enclosed fixtures. Otherwise too much heat will be trapped in the fixture.
Question from Cort Wyss:
Answer from Pegasus:Cort, The reason that we recommend placing the fixtures that close is to avoid a problem known as voltage drop. When you have long runs of wire, sometimes the voltage drops significantly by the time it reaches the fixture. This causes the lights to appear dimmer than normal. By keeping within a short distance, this problem can be avoided. If you have one fixture 15 feet away, then you will likely have very uneven lighting among the light fixtures. The light farthest away from the transformer will appear significantly dimmer than the lights 4 feet away.
Question from Luke:
Answer from Pegasus:Yes, you can use a magnetic transformer to power these lights.
