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; photocell sensitivity may limit transformer placement. 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
  • Patent pending.

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.

  • Q:

    is power cord removable so i can plug in inside garage and still keep housing outside
    Asked on 10/28/2017 by jim from tampa

    1 answer

    • VOLT Lighting Specialist

      A:

      Attempting to modify or alter the product in any manner will void the lifetime warranty. It will also void the product's ETL Rating. With that being said, we would not recommend cutting the main power-cord on your VOLT® transformer.

  • Q:

    I have the last transformer on a dimmer switch, will this transformer (100 w slim version) work with a dimmer switch
    Asked on 10/16/2017 by None from Sussex Wisconsin

    1 answer

    • VOLT Lighting Specialist

      A:

      No; we would not recommend using a dimmer with any of our transformers as they have not been tested or rated for this and the results would be unpredictable.

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

This slim line transformer is mounted on my house and even had a place to lock it. It is very easy to install and has several timer features from which to choose. I chose to have it set at dusk and shut off 4 hours later. That's it! It would adjust itself to the setting of the sun. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

Another Quality Product from VOLT

By

Verified Buyer

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

This is a nice design and very easy to install. It already has a timer and photocell so no need to buy attachments. It accepts 4 separate low voltage circuits, and if you are using 3-4 watt LED bulbs with these fixtures, this allows a decent number of lights. I used it with the VOLT® Undercover Hardscape Light (Cast Brass) and there is still enough capacity to add a few VOLT® Brass Bully Shielded MR16 In-Ground Well Lights, which just arrived today. This can be mounted indoors or outdoors but be warned that the photocell is pre-installed with this unit and will not work properly if installed indoors. I called to see if a remote photocell could be added to the system, however the technical department indicated that is was not possible for this unit. The 150W and higher have that capability from what I am told.

I am impressed with the quality of workmanship. The photocell is impressive. It turns the lights on and off at the right time. Our neighbors turn theirs on too early and off too late. The Volt does a fantastic job. I highly recommend for smaller jobs.
