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 overloaded 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.

Can this pose led lights

Asked by Tim April 11, 2021

Answers

If you are asking if the unit can power LED lights, then the answer is "probably". It is just a 12 or 15v AC (depending on which terminal you use) power supply. Outdoor LED landscape fixtures use 12v AC as do LED landscape replacement bulbs. Plain 12v DC LED bulbs will not work. They will probably flicker horribly and then quicky fail.

Generally this is because of too much ambient light from Street lights or lights on your house. The unit doesn't think it is dark enough to turn on. Try relocating the photo sensor to a darker location.

I moved into a house with this unit but it does not have a photosensor. Can I purchase one?

Yes it can. You need thicker Guage cable for the halogen or if you are going longer distances.

Assuming a 50 watt LED bulb consumes 6.5 watts. Total demand on transformer would be 110.5 watts for 17 bulbs, well within the capacity of the transformer. Size/rating of wire is a function of length and number of connections. Likely there's an electrical table/chart available to calculate the the size wire needed to maintain/supply voltage needed at each bulb/fixture.

How long is the power cord?

I believe it is about 3 feet.

How long of a run can i use with the 200w transformer?

Answers

All I can tell you is I have a system with approximately 150 ft. It works, but the bulbs are certainly dimmer the further out you go. I have 25 lights on the system at 4 watts each, so I have max-out my system.

Answers

I have 80+ attached to my 4 Hampton Transformers and have been running them for 4 years. When I get flickering it is normally due to the connection between the lamp and the main wire. Occasionaly I have to give up on a lamp as the connectors that penetrate the main wire are bend. A new lamp is the solution. I am a happy user of the Hampton transformers and lights and to the price you cannot find anything better.

Ideal for my needs
The transformer was easy to install and set up. It gives you a variety of programming options for any lighting scenario. Manual on-off; timer on-off; sensor on timer off; and sensor dusk-to dawn. I actual purchased 3 of these units so I could zone our landscape. Areas of the garden that didn’t need to be lighted all night vs. walks and driveway for safety and security. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to install or upgrade their landscape lighting. Good value and a quality product. Plus it has enough power to supply all the LED lighting you would ever need both now and future expansion

Flawed design
Do not buy this brand. The design is flawed due to it being made out of plastic and the screws eventually detaching exposing the entite case. I though it was one bad purchase but I exchanged and bought an additional one with same outcome. They are in a safe location away from lawnmowers or being bumped. Main issue florida weather melts the inside where the screw connects the case. All three didnt last more than 6 months but broker after the 90 days return policy. Nice!

Really straight forward installation. Interesting feature is the clock holds current time. So if you want to put it on a smart/wifi switch, you can turn the power off and not lose your time on and off settings. Worth the extra ten dollars to get 80 more watts over the 120 watt unit. Unclear why it takes another $50 to move to the 300 watt unit.

This is a nice transformer with a slim profile. It's about the size of a thick book, measuring 8.5" x 5.5" x 2.5". In one of my pictures you can see it compared to my existing transformer, which is smaller, but only has a 100W capacity. The only disadvantage I see is the power cord is relatively short, only 3', so you need to set it up relatively close to your power source. One of my transformers I have set up in my garage window has a 6' cord, which allows a little more flexibility. If you are using a straight timer, this isn't an issue. If you are using the photocell, that device has a 6' cord to connect back to the transformer, so you have some nice flexibility there. You just have to make sure you can mount it close to your power outlet. The unit has a powerful red display, which you'll either want to cover with some tape or face away from your seating area or window, as it can be a little glaring at night. The unit has nice options to use the photo cell to turn lights on and off automatically, or turn on or off via at a set time. I set mine to turn on at dusk and then off at 11:00 pm.

I ordered this landscape transformer to replace one that I had where you had to set the clips to an on/off time. I installed it in under 10 minutes (I had to drill a new hole for the mounting screw). The instructions are pretty straight forward. You attach the the wires for the lights and the wire for the light detector thing. Then you set the time and choose where you want it to go on at a specific time or on with the darkness. You choose when they turn off, either a specific time or until sunrise. It works great and I'm happy.

A large wattage outdoor landscape transformer that can handle multiple landscape wires or independent fixtures up to 200 watts. Can be used to power a variety of 12 volt applications. Not crazy about the anti-glare screen, it just looks foggy and not sure you will be able to read it once it weathers. Cord length is adequate for mounting near power source. Auto on/off with photo eye. Standard installation with no surprises. It does the job on my new multi light illuminated sculpture.
