Your question doesn’t say how many of those lights you plan to use, but the basic idea is to stay within 80% of the transformers total watts. In your case 90-100 watts total draw. Take the wattage of your lights times how many you will use. Your wire gauge and length of run are fine.
Kristi, You would need 12ga low voltage wire to allow for the voltage drop at that length run.
No, if you use the photo cell setting, it controls both the On and Off function of your lights, as far as I’m aware. You would have to use the custom on/off function and set specific times for both.
Probably should buy a new i e nit one thats burnt out. Lol. At the store
I'm assuming your lights stopped working. Sometimes they go bad. I had one go out after a couple of years. So unless you have an extended warranty. Or just bought it. You need a new one.
I am sure you have considered the possibilities. This happened to me and the problem was a break in the wire from the transformer to the lights. Also, test the transformer by putting the common and other wire together to see if they spark (low voltage won't cause you any harm). If the transformer has no spark then check to see if it is getting power from the outlet. If it is, then the transformer may have failed.
I had the same desire. By default it uses a clock timer which loses its time when power is removed. But if you set it to come on at dusk (a persistent selection in the menu) and do NOT plug in the photocell, then it turns the lights on whenever line power is applied. Without the photocell it always sees darkness so turns on immediately.
The Hampton manual does not specifically state that you can use both. The manual warning is not to overload the maximum wattage output with too many low voltage lights. I expect that you could use both 12 and 15v terminals at the same time by sharing the common wires with the one common terminal so long as the maximum wattage on both lines does not exceed the unit's maximum wattage output.
