Introduction to Landscape Lighting Transformers A landscape lighting transformer is a type of remote control for corralling the voltage and settings you have set up on your outdoor landscape lighting. A transformer is a great resource to use and tool to have. It allows you to control all the settings on your outdoor lighting, including timers for when items should turn on and off, including not only lighting but your sprinkler system as well. This is a great tool for if you have multiple light sources as part of your landscaping, each with different voltages. Many homeowners find transformers to be useful during the holiday season when they are using their lighting décor. Different Types and Applications of Landscape Lighting Transformers Outdoor landscape lighting transformers are generally in the $200-600 range. Brands of transformers can be purchased from Kichler, Progress Lighting, Hinkley Lighting and Sea Gull Lighting. Transformers should be purchased according to wattage. They are sold with the amount of maximum wattage they can handle as part of the showcased name, for example “Kichler 15PR600 Professional Series 600 Watt Landscape Transformer ”. It is important also that you are aware of your type of voltage- whether line voltage or low voltage – when purchasing a landscape lighting transformer. Design and Installation of Landscape Lighting Transformers A transformer is typically a rectangular shaped, small box that looks somewhat like a remote control. A transformer should be very carefully considered and handled properly only with the utmost care. A transformer should also be stored in a safe place. Some parts are sold as accessories work with a number of different brands; however, there may be cases where compatibility is only between the same brand. It’s important to check the product packaging on a transformer for this information. Transformers are available for both indoor and outdoor lighting needs.

Now that you’ve determined whether you’re looking for a 12-volt magnetic transformer, 24-volt electronic transformer, 12-volt electronic transformer, or 24-volt magnetic transformer (that’s a mouthful!), you can narrow it down by wattage. Each transformer has a “maximum wattage load.” Typically, this is what the actual product is labeled. The rule here is that the maximum wattage load of your transformer must be equal to or larger than the total wattage of all the light fixtures you are connecting to it. Let’s say you have one light fixture with one 60-watt light bulb for the transformer mentioned above. That’s fine. However, if you install a light fixture with three 60-watt light bulbs, you’ll need a transformer with a maximum wattage load of at least 180 watts.

There are a few pros and cons to consider here. Electronic transformers have an additional electronic device called an inverter that enables them to be much smaller than magnetic transformers. So, if you need to tuck the transformer into a tight space, you might want to veer toward an electronic transformer. Another advantage to an electronic transformer is that it can be reset at the wall switch if there’s an overload.
