This remote magnetic transformer converts standard 120 or 277 volt line-voltage to 12 volts, providing the necessary voltage for powering a MonoRail, Kable Lite, Wall MonoRail or FreeJack low-voltage lighting system.
This remote magnetic transformer can be used to power lamps totaling up to 300 watts. This transformer is equipped with fast-acting secondary circuit breaker that will safely turn off the system should a short occur. Once the short has been removed the breaker can be reset.
This transformer must be installed in a remote but accessible location (such as above the ceiling or in a closet). To simplify installation the transformer should be located no more than 20' from the run or power feed. The electrician will need to supply the proper gauge conductor from the transformer to the power feed location based on distance (see Low-Voltage Wire Size Table, below).
Input Wiring: Can be ordered to hard wire to a junction box or to plug in with 16' power cord with plug. This transformer provides a single 300 watt output and must be used with a single-feed canopy or other power feed option (sold separately). 12 volt output transformers require the use of 12 volt lamps.

As a general rule when using LED fixtures we do not recommend using greater than 70% of specified maximum wattage on the transformer due to inrush current. for assistance, please contact our technical support department.
