VOLT® Clamp-Connect 600 Watt (12v/15v) Multi-Tap Low Voltage Transformer for LED Landscape Lighting

This 600-watt Landscape Lighting Transformer features clamp-type terminal blocks that offer many advantages over typical screw-type blocks. Requiring no tools, the stripped wires are inserted individually into each hole, then clamped in place. The process is fast, simple, and provides extremely secure connections - you can't pull them loose.

Features & Benefits:

  • Exclusive VOLT® Innovation! Clamp-type connectors to save time and money - and, for better connections that will never come loose.
  • Designed for LEDs - only two voltages required - 12 & 15 volts. The lower voltage for short runs, the higher voltage for longer runs or for runs with more fixtures.
  • Toroidal core for more reliable, efficient, cooler and quieter operation than EI laminated transformers.
  • Control device receptacles for optional timers and photocells so you can set ON/OFF times.
  • Spacious wire compartment (in combination with the clamp-type connectors) makes installation a breeze.
  • Stainless steel enclosure with lockable hinged lid.
  • Colored wire markers & installation manual.
  • cUL Listed
  • Lifetime warranty on core and enclosure | Other Electrical Components - 5 years

For Your Information: Transformer Technology

What are Magnetic Transformers?

These transformers use two coils, a primary coil and a secondary coil, to reduce the voltage from 120 volt down to 12 volts. The primary coil carries the line voltage (108 v to 132 v). The flow of electricity through the primary coil induces a magnetic field that creates a current in the secondary coil. Since the secondary coil has 10 times fewer windings, it creates a current with 10 times lower voltage.

Two Magnetic Types. There are two types of magnetic landscape lighting transformers. These vary by the type of core:

  1. Laminated/stacked cores (also know as EI type). Laminated or stacked windings have sheets wrapped in copper wire that are then stacked or laminated together to make a core. This is the more common, less expensive method for manufacturing a core. These are less efficient, run hotter and are noisier than toroidal cares.
  2. Toroidal cores. These are one solid unit shaped like a donut and have the windings wrapped around the donut, in and out of the donut hole. Toroidal cores are more efficient, experience less buzz, and run cooler but are more expensive to make.

The choice of whether or not to use a toroidal core also depends the system load. Systems with relatively high loads - such as lighting systems with 10 or more fixtures, benefit the most from toroidal cores; smaller systems - such as those with less than 50 watts of load, are served well with EI laminated types. This is why VOLT® sells its smallest transformer (75 watt capacity) with an EI core.

What are Electronic Transformers?

This transformer type converts the 120 volt current to 12 volts by first increasing the frequency of the current (from 60 Hz to as high as 20,000 Hz). The increased frequency allows the use of a miniature core enabling the transformer to be very small, light, and inexpensive. The biggest downside is that their high frequency current may not be compatible with LED circuits. These currents also suffer from extensive voltage loss compared to magnetic types. A 12-volt electronic transformer must be positioned within about 10 ft. of the fixture. Electronic transformers are also subject to overheating and premature failure. For all these reasons, VOLT® only uses electronic transformers for indoor lights such as under-cabinet and strip lighting.

  • Q:

    Any issues with using a larger transformer than I really need? I only need a 75 watt transformer but was going to use the 600 watt because it has two switches. I might add lights later down the road as well. I'm concerned about having way to much transformer for a really low load?

      A:

      There is not issue with having a transformer that is too large. You only use what is consumed by the fixtures on the transformer, so the only real down side is the cost.

Great quality - only issue was getting the 1/2" knockout and having the whole piece come out causing a 3/4" hole for the 1/2" photo cell

Pros

  • Accepts an astronomical timer.
  • Easy to set up with clamp connectors.
  • Extremely quiet.
  • Looks great.

      Comments about VOLT® Clamp-Connect 600 Watt (12v/15v) Multi-Tap Low Voltage Transformer for LED Landscape Lighting:

      I bought two of these timers after converting my home low-voltage system to LED lights. My old system had mechanical timers which always had to be adjusted, and the transformers made a noticeable buzz when they were on. This transformer is dead quiet and looks great on the wall. With the extra astronomical timer, you program it once and you're done.
