Product Overview

  • Eliminates buzzing while offering the highest efficiency possible
  • Outdoor plug-in unit is weather durable and corrosion resistant
  • Transformer includes photocell, digital timer, and ground shield
The landscape transformers are Hampton Bay's lowest profile slim line power units which can be easily concealed after installation. These units are based on a potted toroidal core design that eliminates annoying buzzing sounds while offering the highest efficiency possible. Our Hampton Bay SL units meet the Department of Energy DOE mandatory requirement efficiency rating of VI. Utilizing state of the art sensing circuits, our transformers provide dual safety functions that detect and react to a system overload or a short circuit condition in a landscape installation. Hampton Bay power packs provide convenient features and flexibility to design simple or more elaborate landscape lighting designs. The transformer includes a photocell and digital timer, a ground shield making it safe for use with submersible lights. The units are equipped with dual voltage output terminals (12-Volt and 15-Volt) which help compensate for voltage drops in high-Wattage / longer wire runs as well as to help reduce cable loss when using 15V LED fixtures.
  • Plug-in outdoor weather-durable corrosion-resistant unit, use UL approved 5VA durable plastic housing
  • Remote photocell detects sunlight for automatic activation/shutoff
  • Easy to use display with preset functions: clock display - photocell dusk to dawn - timer ON/OFF - photocell ON/timer OFF - manual ON/OFF
  • For use with submersible fixtures
  • Department of Energy (DOE) efficiency rating class VI
  • Built-in resettable short circuit, overload and surge protection

Questions & Answers

Can the unit be exposed to rain?

Asked by: Pat
Yes. Normal exposure mounted on the side of your house under the eave is sufficient. Mine gets wet regularly during a hard blowing rain. Mine unit is 3-5 years old.

I have deck well lights that require DC12v. AC will cause them to flicker and burn out. What output is this transformer? I know it has 12v and 15v options, but nowhere in the listing does it specify AC or DC
Asked by: Nathan
NOW HEAR THIS: I've measured the output with an oscilloscope, and it's strictly 60Hz AC. Those who advise otherwise are probably confused because most LED bulb lighting fixtures require low voltage DC (not AC), and when their LEDs light they think the output must be DC. But their assumption is wrong---their LEDs work only because their LED lighting fixture has internal circuitry that rectifies the incoming AC and delivers DC to the LEDs.

CAN I RUN ANOTHER 50 FT. OF CABLE IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION OFF MY 120W TRANSFORMER BY SPLICING THE WIRES AT THE CONNECTION ON THE TRANSFORMER AS LONG AS I STAY BELOW THE TOTAL 'ACTUAL WATTAGE' OF 120 WATTS? I PRESENTLY HAVE 4 100W EQUIVLNT(17.22 WATT ACTUAL USING A TOTAL 68.88 WATTS) I WANT TO RUN 4 MORE LIGHTS IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION OF DIFFERENT WATTAGE( 4 X 20W EQUIVLNT (3.7 WATT ACTUALTOTAL 14.8 WATTS. FOR A GRAND TOTAL OF 83.68 WATTS ON 120 WATT TRANSFORMER.
Asked by: THOMAS
It may slightly effect the lights farthest away from the transformer because the 120 watts is being pushed 100'. It's not just the wattage but the distance of the run. I have split my runs before without issue.

Customer Reviews

Low-Voltage 120-Watt Landscape Transformer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 280.

Agree with other reviews that Malibu is much more user friendly when you can choose their Auto 2-4-6-8 hour run instead of programing a clock and having to re-set the clock with time changes or even in the event of a power outage. Choose the Auto 6 hour run time and let the photo eye turn it on at dusk and forget it all tear. Returned the Hampton Bay after I saw how easy the neighbor's system ran.

We recently purchased 6 LED landscape lights and one LED flood light for our front yard. Along with the lights, we needed to purchase a Low-Voltage Landscape Transformer. Some of the transformers out there have really bad reviews. After reading the various reviews, we settled upon the Hampton Bay transformer. We bought the 120-Watt over the model under this one due to it only being a few dollars more. This way, I'm sure to be able to handle any additional lighting needs in the future. Connecting the lights to the transformer was extremely easy, and programming the ON / OFF functions was as simple as following the provided instructions. I elected to not use the Dawn to Dusk sensor, and simply program a Daily On / Off schedule. It was not difficult to do at all. A few times, we lost power and this transformer retained all the settings I set. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with this purchase, and highly recommend this transformer.

The instructions are not written correctly, but the on-display menus are easy to navigate and similar to using television controls without a remote control. Definitely recommend this system. The 20W & 75W equivalent lights and the speaker systems are simple and meet expectations. The best part is the ability to buy more lights and expand the system.

We have had to replace the transformer after a number of months we had an electrical malfunction with the transformer. This occured where one attaches the wires to the transformer. Be careful connecting the wires.

The connector for photocell hard to align with socket. Would be better with the next size larger screw connectors for the output. You cannot put spade lugs sized for #12 wire on the provided terminals.
