Halolite Transformer
20 Nov 2014
By

"Used this unit in conjunction with 3 50W 12V downlighters to replace existing 240V units. Bought the 150 to 300W unit because its always best if electrical equipment in comfortably within rating. Great that it has loop-in terminals for the mains side and 3 sets of terminals on the 12V side. Wiring was easy and it performs well. Has only been in use for a day hence the reliability rating is a conservative estimate I expect!"

Does what it says on the box

"I used this to replace a failed toroidal transformer in a very expensive light fitting. The Halolite transformer went into the ceiling void rather than the light fitting but had the advantage of being dimmable. Has performed perfectly so far. A replacement toroidal tansformer for the light fitting would have cost over £100 so I saved money too."

"One of our properties had been fitted with 10 * 20watt 12v halogen downlighters in one room but they'd only used a 100 watt transformer which of course burnt out.
I chose this model because it's only running at 2/3rds it's capacity & the soft-start lengthens the life of the bulbs.

"Excellent way to cut down from 12 x transformers in my case to two single unit that also gave the user the advantage of "dimmable" lights. Especlailly usefull in this case where the installation was in a farmhouse kitchen with exposed beams and thus nowhere to hide all the transfromers. It was easier to hide 2 slightly larger ones than tweleve small ones. Just watch your cable capacities and cable lentghs if you do do this. Make sure you use a separate cable between each light and the transformer and keep close to the recmmended max of no more than 2 metres for each cable. I used 0.75mm black flex with 6 amp capacity at 12 volt. (50W Bulbs use around 4+ amps at 12 volts)."

"This was a replacement which 'did as it said on the tin' it worked first time and was small enough to fit through the hole in the ceiling."

"I bought this to replace a large wound transformer which died one day - easy to fit with somewhat small terminals but adequate for the job - the output terminal block came loose on the first one due to poor manufacture (badly soldered on) this was changed over with no problem - the second one is performing well and does not trip my MCB which the previous wound transformer did and seems to be good value - I'll see how long it lasts!!"

"Have just replaced a unit (after 2 years) which overheated due to the loft insulators being over-enthusiastic.
Am hoping the new unit lasts for at least the 5 years of guarantee. I took the previous reviewer's advice on wiring.
Beware - the instruction leaflet shows incorrect layout of the output terminals. The tiny diagram on the body of the unit is correct.
