VOLT® 75 Watt 12 & 15v Multi-Tap Transformer

VOLT® 75W Landscape Lighting Transformers feature top-of-line internal and external components for professional results and commercial reliability. Truly, the perfect solution for a small landscape lighting system. This extremely reliable, energy-efficient, and quiet transformer will last a lifetime. The stainless steel body deters rust and maintains integrity even in corrosive outdoor environments.

The 12- and 15-volt taps give you choices for fixtures that are either far or near the transformer; or for wire runs that have heavy loads. Convenient stainless steel mounting bracket, removable door, and removable lower plate make installation an easy process.

Built-in mechanical timer allows for easy system programming. Photocell receptacle allows your transformer to be fully programmed to daylight scheduling.

Since wiring can be difficult on a transformer with a very small body cavity, our VOLT® 75W Multi-Tap Transformer features approximately 35% larger openings than other similar models. That allows you to organize your incoming lines and make connections without hassle.

Easily one of the best low voltage transformers on the market. Don't settle on any lesser quality! Order your commercial-grade low voltage transformer today from VOLT®.

  • Q:

    Will this 75w transformer overdrive my LED lights if I only have one or two 5W lights hooked up and shorten their life span? Is there a minimum load required? The reason I ask is I want to expand with some more lights at a later time.

      A:

      The transformer only uses the wattage you are pulling with those LED bulbs. The fixtures are only receiving the 12 or 15 volts, depending on how you wire them. Most people get larger transformers for future expansion, so that is not an issue.

Terse review due to 1000 char limit.

I actually purchased 300 and 900 Watt 12-15V but providing info that may apply here as well.

On main web pag, click "How to Center" link under "Help", find the "Low Voltage Layout Guide" link to get to the voltage drop formula and chart. Using this chart I was able to determine that I could use a 12 - 15V instead of the more expensive 15 - 22V transformer.

As other reviewers, when I mounted the photo sensor - the knuckle broke. I managed to fix it.

The transformer boxes have a punch out on the side for the photo cell as well as several at the bottom for wiring (of if the photo cell extension cable). All of the punch outs are in reality a punch out within a punch out. The inner is 1/2 inch. The outer is 3/4 inch. The photo sensor is 1/2 inch when mounting on the box. Remove the inner punch out very carefully or it will pull the outer one with it.

Every time we have a short power outage (the ones that last only fractions of a second) the timer stops working. Per Volt's instruction, I have to go out and unplug the unit, spin the dial, reset the timer, and plug it back in. This makes it work, but is a real chore and sometimes it takes a couple of attempts to get it going again. Volt says this is normal as the unit is not designed to tolerate these brief outages. If I had known this in advance, I would have bought something else.

Comments about VOLT® 75 Watt (12v & 15v) Multi-Tap Low Voltage Transformer for Landscape Lighting:

Wow, what a difference! Our former 75 watt VOLT transformer finally gave up the ghost after a year and a half. It was installed by Rich of Three Seasons Landscape, Palmetto, in August of 2015. Like most everything else he did on our property, it was a slip-shod operation. He probably sold us an old used unit that he knew was on it's way out. It sounded like an electric coffee grinder when it ran. He created a bunch of headaches for us with his lack of knowledge and poor work ethic. But that is for another time.( We never got any warranty papers on anything he sold to us) So, we now have this new 75 watt transformer that is wonderful. Keeps perfect time and is SILENT!! Love it. (You can come get your old piece of hardware, Rich) Thank you!

Transformer with timer is great.

Comments about VOLT® 75 Watt (12v & 15v) Multi-Tap Low Voltage Transformer for Landscape Lighting:

I ordered the transformer and did not realize the timer was built in so had also ordered the photo sensor. However we decided we wanted to use the time instead. When we went to set the timer we could not turn the dial. I called customer service and they walked me through a few steps and nothing worked. I shipped it back and sent me a new one. No hassles and everyone I talked to was fabtastic. Works great!

Comments about VOLT® 75 Watt (12v & 15v) Multi-Tap Low Voltage Transformer for Landscape Lighting:

This is a very well made transformer. Nice stainless steel enclosure and easy to wire. I see complaints about the KOs being hard to get out. This wasn't a big deal to me as I am an electrician and used to it. If you hit the knockout very sharply and hard on the edge it will start to pop right out. No complaints. Great product.

It Works Great

Comments about VOLT® 75 Watt (12v & 15v) Multi-Tap Low Voltage Transformer for Landscape Lighting:

Installed this transformer for 7 LED fixtures (also bought here) and it works flawlessly. I read the reviews about the knockouts so I removed the whole bottom plate from transformer then braced it before using the screw drive to punch it out. It came out cleanly with first hit. The inclusion of integrated timer saves money as well. The directions were confusing so just in case for the timer here is how it works. When the trippers are located towards the center, that is the ON position. Move all the trippers away from the center for the time range you want the lights to be OFF. Hope it saves some Youtube searches!

Punch-outs Are Indeed An Issue

By 

from Addison, IL United States

Site Member

Comments about VOLT® 75 Watt (12v & 15v) Multi-Tap Low Voltage Transformer for Landscape Lighting:

I read the reviews and indeed the punch-outs in the bottom of the unit took longer to do (without damaging the unit itself, than most of the balance of the installation.

It has only been several weeks, but seems OK.

I also Prunkes the sensor, and had difficulties with the pins not aligning very well, which added to frustrations.

For the price point paid, it seems that these sort of issues should never have presented themselves in the first place.

Comments about VOLT® 75 Watt (12v & 15v) Multi-Tap Low Voltage Transformer for Landscape Lighting:

Got this with kit. Be careful with the bottom knockouts.....very difficult to remove and should be done so on bench so can brace in a manner that will avoid bending the bottom plate. Fortunately I had read the reviews related to this and got mine out ok.
Much easier to remove the side knockout for the photo cell.
High quality transformer......very satisfied with it.

Not easy extracting the conduit plugs

By

Comments about VOLT® 75 Watt (12v & 15v) Multi-Tap Low Voltage Transformer for Landscape Lighting:

I haven't turn the power on as I'm still installing the lights so I can't comment on performance. However, from an Installation perspective I had a tough time breaking out the wire plugs in the chassis so I could mount the wire retainers.. The circular plugs were not cut through deep enough and I had to hit with a screwdriver and hammer so hard, it bent the chassis (which I had to straighten).. Totally unacceptable for a quality product..

Good Transformer

Comments about VOLT® 75 Watt (12v & 15v) Multi-Tap Low Voltage Transformer for Landscape Lighting:

The first one sent had a defective timer which I didn't notice until the lighting didn't turn on the 2nd night of operation. Volt replaced the unit and the replacement works as intended. I was not in a rush so opted to return defective unit rather than purchase a second one and then wait for credit. The return procedure was efficient and was up and running in a week or so after the return. So far it's worked perfectly.

Had trouble with knockout

By 

from Mountain View, CA United States

Site Member

Comments about VOLT® 75 Watt (12v & 15v) Multi-Tap Low Voltage Transformer for Landscape Lighting:

The bottom knockouts are part of a separate piece of metal that screws onto the bottom of the main box. When I tried to knock the knockouts out of the bottom, the metal bent and the knockouts stubbornly refused to be knocked out.

Customer support was great, though. They actually sent me a replacement piece for the bottom with the knockout removed, free of charge.

The side knockout (for the photocell), which is part of the thicker, main box, came out with no problem.

Comments about VOLT® 75 Watt (12v & 15v) Multi-Tap Low Voltage Transformer for Landscape Lighting:

Pretty nice Stainless Steel Transformer, very compact. as an option, if the internal timer was not built in however I believe this would be great for more flexability.
