Let it light!
Looking for the best uplight for a large 50-60 foot tall triple clump white birch in my front yard. Light, watts, beam angle, transformer?
I would like some advise on my lighting layout. Can you send you a file for review?
Please feel free to create a post in the 'Ask' section of this forum and attach images! This will be the best way to receive feedback from an admin or other homeowners.
Does Volt have user’s instructions for transformers available for download on their site?
A downloadable installation guide and spec sheet is available on the product page of the transforme you're looking at.
We also include detailed installation instructions in the packaging you'll receive.
Best way to save photos for posting?
I myself will typically open a picture, then take a screenshot with the Snipping Tool. You can also resize it using the paint program, and/or upload the image to a free online image compressor to shrink the size of the file.
It's usually best to post in the 'Ask' or 'Share' sections for the best and quickest feedback.
But to answer your question - that low-voltage LED fixture, and most in general, have a wider input voltage range than just 12V; it can typically vary anywhere from 11-16V really depending on the actual LED. 15V is a safe input voltage for that fixture.
I'd recommend posting a photo of your project space in the 'Ask' section of the forums for the best possible feedback.
Please assist with light placement?
can i connect my AZAL-SPKIT1 (12v) lights to my 100W transformer (it seems to have only 15v connectors)?
3 new Saltydog pond lights with 4W LED bulbs. Have 12V low voltage transformer max 50W. Shows overload shut down immediately.No shortages.?
Sorry for the delayed response - these profile posts are not easily visible. Typically you want to post questions like this in the 'Ask' category.
If you haven't already, I'd recommend calling one of our live experts at (813) 978-3700 for direct troubleshooting help - this way we can get all the specifics to see what might be causing this.
From what you posted, its difficult to tell. Is the transformer 12V AC w/ a magnetic core? If it is an older unit, this could be worth troubleshooting.
Do the fixtures consistently turn back on? No burnt out bulbs from a faulty wire connection under water? If so, I'd stress checking the transformer and connections at/around the transformer.
I bought VLt Lndscp Lt 9-piece Path,Area Light Kit from Cosco 6spot+3path.Exp to 4 more spot .Can I add 4 more area light with a extra hub
Hey Neeraj, with the 150W transformer in that kit, you have about 80 watts of remaining space to add additional lights (this is with all of the pre-provided lights in the kit being used).
New lighting novice
Big project planned
Is it possible to run two separate circuits, one on a photocell and one switched, with a single transformer?
I have a photo but need to figure out how to attach here.
I’m wanting to add some spotlights on my house. What product would you recommend and positioning?
We have a lot of spotlights to choose from so, it really comes down to personal preference. I can provide more info in a different area. To answer your other post as well, you can post photos and more content in general in a forum post; this thread is essentially like a profile 'wall' on Facebook and is limiting.
How do I know what size transformer to get? Would I just add up the Watts of the bulbs to know?
That's correct! You start by adding up the total wattage of all of your lights. With that number in hand, you'll want to keep in mind that we recommend no more than 80% of a transformers capacity be used. So, if you had 140W of lights, a 150W transformer would not be recommended; you'd need a 300W for safe operation which would also allow for expanding in the future if desired.
What size 12 volt system transformer do I need to support up to approximately 30 lights?
Hey there Lee,
The size of the transformer you'd need would ultimately be dependent on the total combined wattage of all the LED lights you will use. With that amount of lights, you will ATLEAST need a 150W transformer - possibly a 300W depending on the actual power consumption. Also, when deciding, keep in mind that we always recommend no more than 80% of a unit's maximum capacity be consumed as well.
I'm going to go ahead and direct message you through 'conversations' so that I can fit more characters in my response (the profile posts are different from private conversations or public forum posts). Also, for the best feedback, its usually best to post in the main area of the forum and maybe attach a single photo of your house from a distance!
