GENERAL INFORMATION
This Safety Transformer is specifically designed to
supply 12 volts to pool/spa lights, submersible
fixtures and outdoor garden lights. A grounded shield
between the primary and secondary winding assures
safe operation and the built-in circuit protection will
disconnect power to the transformer in case of defect
or overload.

wide x 5 1/4” (13 cm) deep. Mounting brackets top and
bottom.
Enclosure: 0.06” stainless steel with
electrostatically applied clear coating.
Knockouts: Total of twelve combination,

left side, (2) back.
INSTALLATION
For field wiring information, please refer to the instructions attached to inside of front cover.
• The enclosure of the transformer must be provided with a fail-proof ground as required by NEC, Article 680
and any applicable local codes. For Canadian installations, the supply circuit must be protected by a ground
fault circuit interrupter.
• For direct wiring of underwater lights, the installation must comply with article 680-21(b) of the National
Electrical Code, or articles 68-060, 062 and 066 of the Canadian Electric Code.
• The transformer should be mounted at least 1 foot above the deck level with the field wiring compartment down.
• Make sure that all unused taps (leads) are separately insulated (capped).
• Use the following table as a guide to determine the correct wire size.
• Check voltage at lamp terminals after installation. It should be 12 ± 0.3 volts.
• Do not connect the two transformers in parallel or in series, Do not use with dimmers.

LIGHTING APPLICATIONS
For field wiring information, please refer to the instructions attached to inside of front cover.
Using the correct gauge cable and wattage is essential to obtaining proper lighting performance. The low
voltage cable for each run must not exceed 100 Ft.and must have a current carrying capacity of at least 20
amp (12 gauge).Determine the total lamp wattage by adding together all the individual lamp wattage's
being used. Do not exceed the maximum wattage rating for the transformer
