VOLT® Pro 900 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 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 (720 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 cores.
  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:

    Is there a way to control each set of 12-22V feeds to go on and of at different times or even manually ?

    • VOLT Lighting Specialist

      A:

      No, our low-voltage transformers do not offer zone-control capabilities such as this; when the unit powers ON/OFF, the entire system will also power ON/OFF accordingly.

  • Q:

    I understand that the transformer gets warm/hot. What can you mount it to if I don't have a stone wall? Can you tell me how an entire system works so I know what's parts I would have to buy. Thanks

      A:

      Our low-voltage transformers are typically mounted directly on the sides of houses; any solid surface or stand where the transformer is at least 1' above the ground will work fine. For everything you need to know about a low-voltage landscape lighting system, be sure to visit our 'build your own system' page in our online resource center.

  • Q:

    Does this have a variable adjustment for bumping up the voltage a little bit from 12V if needed?
    Asked on 9/22/2017 by Tom from PA

    • VOLT Lighting Specialist

      A:

      Yes; the 'VOLT® Pro 900 Watt Transformer' is a multi-tap unit with a range of (12V) to (18V). Additionally, the transformer has a (20V) tap and a (22V) tap as well to further compensate for voltage loss over long distances.

Comments about VOLT® Pro 900 Watt 12-22v Multi-Tap Transformer:

This was precisely the solution I needed for my residential landscape lighting system. This transformer has plenty of capacity for future expansion and was easy to set up. A little more documentation would be helpful, but some quick internet research gave me exactly what I needed to get up and going in just a few hours.

Comments about VOLT® Pro 900 Watt 12-22v Multi-Tap Transformer:

I have been playing around with low voltage lighting at my house for several years buying inexpensive fixtures and transformers from the local home improvement center. I was not getting the desired results due to voltage drop on my runs. My bulbs were too dim and they would burn out prematurely due to improper power. I took time to educate myself on proper wiring techniques and came to quic

Comments about VOLT® Pro 900 Watt 12-22v Multi-Tap Transformer:

Robust unit looking forward to having it for a long time. bought timer and photo cell as well. Trivial to install and the programming is easy and straight forward. Only thing missing were four screws that hold the bottom of the stainless case to the body. Will buy additional items from Volt in the future.
