Questions & Answers

how many lights can I attach to this Transformer without overloading it

Asked by: Frielrules25
The installation manual covers this pretty well. As mentioned in the answers so far, its not number of lights. But it also isn't just number of watts. The limit is a combination of three variables: 1. Total of watts for all fixtures; 2. Length of your layout, i.e., total number of feet of underground cable used; and 3. The gauge of the underground cable used. 12 gauge is much better than 16 gauge and is a great improvement over 18 gauge. Lower number is better, but also much more expensive. The table in the back of the instruction manual is very useful. Also, this particular model transformer allows you to run at either 12 or 15 volts. Running the fixtures at 15 volts will allow more feet of higher gauge cable, but at 15 volts the fixtures actually run 25% higher wattage. So stay at least 25% below the watts rating on the transformer.

Can I set it up to come on at night with the photocell and then go off at a fixed time (e.g. 11 pm)?

Can I set it up to come on at night with the photocell and then go off at a fixed time (e.g. 11 pm)?
Asked by: Ravenhill
Yes, I have it set up the way you have described. The instructions were a little confusing initially, but after reading through the multiple settings a few times I was able complete the install in less than an hour. The photocell works great, I no longer have to adjust the start time during the year.

Customer Reviews

Low-Voltage 300-Watt Landscape Transformer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 173.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Controlling the transformer by a switched outlet This in reference to the review left by Tony and to any other user that might want to use this same setup. This transformers was built as a stand alone unit. It is designed with the multiple settings that we thought would give the consumer multiple options to operate it. With the customer feedback that we have received, we find that their are a lot of consumers that want to operate it by just a switched outlet. This can be done. Just simply put the transformer in the "PHOTOCELL AUTO ON/OFF" setting and do not connect the photocell. In this setting without the photocell connected the transformer is in the powered on state at all time and if you plug it into an outlet controlled by a switch inside your home the switch will control turning your lights on and off. The quickest way to get a resolution to operating any of our transfomers would be to call Hampton Bay Customer Support and they can give you a quick answer to get the transformer to work for your particular operating needs.
