VOLT® Pro 600 Watt 12-22v Multi-Tap Transformer

VOLT® 12-22v Landscape Lighting Transformers feature top-of-the-line internal and external components for professional results and commercial reliability. Truly the perfect solution for medium to large landscape lighting systems - especially those with very long (or heavily loaded) wire runs.

The extremely reliable, efficient, and quiet toroidal magnetic core lasts a lifetime. The transformer also runs cooler than conventional laminated magnetic types. The solid stainless steel body further ensures that this transformer will never corrode.

The 12 to 22 volt taps provide the ability to compensate for voltage loss. For example, using the 22 volt tap, you could install up to 60W of LED lights with a wire run of 600 ft. of #10/2 cable! (Note - we don't advise planning for such long runs - better to relocate your transformer).

The 22-volt tap also allows you to increase your transformer load on shorter runs. For example, with a 150 ft. run using #10/2 - you can load up to 140W of LED lights.

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®


Features & Benefits:

  • Stainless steel enclosure with hinged, lockable door and removable bottom panel for easy wiring.
  • Cabinet Dimensions: 18" T x 10" W x 8" D (300W unit = 22lbs)
  • Large ports enable 6+ cable home runs per each 300w circuit. (e.g. 6 home runs on a 300w transformer, 12 runs on a 600w, 18 runs on a 900w, 24 runs on a 1200w transformer!)
  • Timer and photocell ready ports (timer and photocell not included).
  • Toroid core--runs cooler, quieter, more efficient, lasts longer.
  • Only draws as much electricity as needed to illuminate the bulbs you have -- e.g. a 1200w transformer will only draw 400w of power if you only have 400 watts of bulbs hooked to it. Guidelines suggest never loading the transformer to more than 80% of capacity (480 watts for this model).
  • Built-in stainless steel mounting bracket.
  • Includes a 5 1/2ft line voltage power supply cord. Not designed to be hardwired or for use with an extension cord, doing so will void any warranties.
  • Top Mounting bracket 1 1/4" tall, 3 keyholes, bottom mounting bracket 5/8" tall, open keyhole
  • E.g. 6 runs on a 300w, 12 runs on a 600w, 18 runs on a 900w, 24 runs on a 1200w transformer!
  • Warranty: Core & Housing - Lifetime | 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.

Comments about VOLT® Pro 600 Watt 12-22v Multi-Tap Transformer:

Item arrived in perfect condition. Transformer is extremely quiet - no hum. No-load primary current measured a low 30mA; no-load wattage about 3 - 5 Watts. Excellent

Comments about VOLT® Pro 600 Watt 12-22v Multi-Tap Transformer:

Incredibly quiet since the unit sits on an wall outside my bedroom. The old unit it replaced hummed like crazy. This one has enough power to run a very long line and works great! I will buy another very soon.

Great Transformer

Comments about VOLT® Pro 600 Watt 12-22v Multi-Tap Transformer:

Replaced 2 300W Malibu transformers that lasted less than 3 years with this unit and the digital timer. Easy to setup and the voltage taps give me brighter and more consistent lighting throughout my two line system. Should have bought the transformer from Volt when I purchased all my lights from them. The slight cost difference would have been worth it.

Truly a professional grade product

Comments about VOLT® Pro 600 Watt 12-22v Multi-Tap Transformer:

I purchased one of the 600 Watt transformers in May of 2011. That was 2 years and 4 months ago. Every single day of that time period it has operated perfectly turning my 52 yard lights on at dusk and off at 10:30 PM. I tried the ones available through Lowe's and Home Depot and they just didn't last. This one cost more but I'm very pleased with the performance. It is very reliable.

Comments about VOLT® Pro 600 Watt 12-22v Multi-Tap Transformer:

Overall I am extremely happy with my New 600wt Multi-Tap Transformer. Just a few suggestions to help make this a better product.|Photo Cell- Very Hard to Install Ended up breaking from the inside when installing. |Instructions- Better Instructions on how the Unit Works. (Example... Auto Shut Off when it is Hot outside)|Needs a Larger Hole for installing the Wire Taps. |Again these are just hel

Amazing performance but one flaw

By

Comments about VOLT® Pro 600 Watt 12-22v Multi-Tap Transformer:

This has been amazing i have about 20 lights hooked up to this all different distances and it works great! The only thing i don't like is that I wish the COM ports were bigger and that if you order the photocell they already pop the hole out for you because thats kindof hard and i end of bending a scratching the stainless steel. There also should be a PVC pipe port so you can hide the wires...

Solid transformer

Comments about VOLT® Pro 600 Watt 12-22v Multi-Tap Transformer:

This is a very high quality simple to install system. The only redesign I would recommend is the seals on the hubs but that is a minor issue. I anticipate wanting to expand to more zones now that I see the results.

Comments about VOLT® Pro 600 Watt 12-22v Multi-Tap Transformer:

I'm a first time installer. The guy that set up my side yard did a terrible job so I decided to tackle my entire yard myself. This transformer works precisely as advertised and the website made installing it a snap. Product is very well made and looks great installed near my pool pad. Added a timer as well as a photocell for hands free use. The multi tap functionality allowed for multiple run
