Lamp Voltages, Output and Input Amperage

March 5th, 2010
  • Use a voltmeter to check the voltage at each fixture (10.8v – 12v)
  • Use a clamp meter to check output on the low voltage cable at the transformer to make sure you have not exceed 25 amps per circuit (your breaker will likely trip if you have)
  • Use a clamp amp meter to measure the input current not to exceed the max input current rating. Each transformer is marked with the appropriate input current
  • Be sure to put the door on and latch it

These instructions are included with each purchase (located inside the transformer box).

These guidelines are used for illustration purposes and manufacturer Installation & Instruction Manuals should be used for actual installation.
