This remote magnetic transformer converts standard 120 volt line-voltage to 12 volts, providing the necessary voltage for powering a Two-Circuit MonoRail low-voltage lighting system.
Each transformer includes fast-acting secondary circuit breakers that will safely turn the system off should a short occur. Once the short has been removed the breakers can be reset. Transformer powers lamp totaling up to 150 watts.
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).
12 volt output transformers require the use of 12 volt lamps. Use with a single-feed Two-Circuit canopy or other power feed option (sold separately).
|LOW-VOLTAGE WIRE SIZE TABLE|
|Use to determine the correct THHN wire size for a recommended 3 percent drop in voltage at the specified wattage. The length shown is the length of wire from the transformer to the power feed.|
|12 Volt||5 ft.||6-15 ft.||16-20 ft.||21-40 ft.||41-60 ft.||61-90 ft.|
|75 Watt||#12 GA||#8 GA||#6 GA||#4 GA||#2 GA||#1 GA|
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.
