VOLT® 100 Watt Slim Line LED Transformer | Low Voltage Landscape Lighting

This low-profile transformer breaks ground in simplicity of installation and control.

The clamp-type terminal blocks are impressively easy to use - taking seconds to connect - compared to many minutes of frustrating work for standard terminal blocks. Just insert the stripped wire and close the clamp!

Next, a VOLT® innovation, a newly designed timer/photocell combination. Visible through the housing window, this timer can be set for simple dusk-to-dawn operation, or set to turn off after a certain number of hours. The photocell is built into the timer. This timer is a removable module - easily replaced.

The Slim Line Transformers have an easily removable, tool-less grommet to replace the metal knock-outs of traditional transformers. Traditional knock-outs required tools and were difficult to remove. The grommets on the new Slim Line Transformers are removed easily and can be replaced if necessary.

To make this transformer slimmer, lighter, and simpler-to-install, we eliminated unnecessary voltage taps. Instead of having to choose among 12V, 13V, 14V, and so on, you just use the single 15V tap. That's all you need for any small to medium-sized (up to 100W) VOLT LED system. No need to worry about voltage loss.

Features & Benefits:

  • Designed for VOLT® LED bulbs and fixtures.
  • Toroidal core for more reliable, efficient, cooler and quieter operation than EI laminated types.
  • Low-profile housing for easier mounting and concealment.
  • Includes modular timer with built-in photocell and simple settings - easy to set-up.
  • Clamp-type wire connectors for easy, fast, and secure connections. Accepts up to 12-gauge wire.
  • Stainless steel enclosure with lockable hinged lid.
  • ETL Listed
  • Lifetime warranty on core and enclosure | Other Electrical Components - 5 years

For Your Information: Transformer Technology

Magnetic Transformers. There are two types. 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.

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® 100 Watt Slim Line Transformer with Timer and Photocell:

I'm very happy with this transformer. It has plenty of power to do a lot of LED lights, and having the timer/photocell all in one is a nice plus. Mine is mounted in an area that is somewhat dark, and I was worried it might go on too soon, but it works perfectly -- turning on right as the sun goes down. I'm very happy with it.

Comments about VOLT® 100 Watt Slim Line Transformer with Timer and Photocell:

We installed this with a new hardscape installation using the bronze undercover lights. It is a great improvement over the 75 W it replaced. No additional photocell, improved connections- and it looks very professional. So far we like this transformer a lot.

Comments about VOLT® 100 Watt Slim Line Transformer with Timer and Photocell:

Purchased one transformer to replace a broken Portfolio transformer that lasted only 4 years. I was impressed with the build quality of the unit as it's considerably heavier than it's plastic cased counterparts. The unit has worked very well and the photo-cell enables me to set the desired length of time to run my outdoor lighting. My only concern is that the casing is definitely eye catching, so you'll want to place the transformer out of public view so it doesn't end up getting stolen.
