The Remote Transformer: 12v 150w Single-Feed Magnetic by Tech Lighting is part of their MonoRail System. This low voltage bendable rail system offers lighting solutions with a unique twist.
This remote magnetic transformer converts standard 120 volt line voltage to 12 volts, providing the necessary voltage for powering a MonoRail, Kable Lite, Wall MonoRail or FreeJack low-voltage lighting system. This remote magnetic transformer can be used to power lamps totaling up to 150 watts, and is equipped with a fast-acting secondary circuit breaker that will safely turn off the system should a short occur. Once the short has been removed the breaker can be reset. Tip: Add fixtures to account for at least 50% of the maximum wattage the transformer is rated for.
This transformer must be installed in a remote but accessible location (such as above the ceiling or in a closet). To simplify installation the transformer should be located no more than 20 feet from the run or power feed. The electrician will need to supply the proper gauge conductor from the transformer to the power feed location based on distance (see voltage drop chart image).
Dimmable with a 600 watt low-voltage magnetic dimmer. The dimmer is placed on the line side of the transformer. (Consult dimmer manufacturer for specifics.) Dimming a transformer may create a buzzing sound, which may be objectionable in some applications. A debuzzing dimming coil can be purchased separately to reduce the audible noise.
Input Wiring: Can be ordered to hard wire to a junction box or to plug in with 16 foot power cord with inline switch, two feet from the plug.
This transformer provides a single 150 watt output and must be used with a single-feed canopy or other power feed option (sold separately). 12 volt output transformers require the use of 12 volt lamps (bulbs).
From its inception, Tech Lighting began by offering choice to lighting designers, architects and homeowners alike. Today, they continue to offer a multiplicity of precision systems. Tech Lighting works under the belief that the latest and best new product innovations are the result of quality craftsmanship, attention to even the smallest design detail and a drive to consistently bring you something new – and to do so often. That is what Tech Lighting does. Twelve complete systems, complemented by Wall, Bath, and Ceiling Collections. All in all, a practically limitless number of available colors and design options, each one created specifically to deliver quality light, unparalleled design and choice to make a system your own.
Just a quick FYI: Tech Lighting have components unique to their systems. It is therefore not possible to mix and match fixtures and components with systems by other manufacturers.
