Question

Asked on 05/22/2015 by Terry

I have a PX300 trying to run a pool light by Haywood, 12V 300 watt. The pool light would come on sometimes, then shut down. I had a spare PX300 new. Installed it. Have 12.18 volts to the light. Nothing lights. I tried 2 new bulbs. Nothing. Went straight to the transformer, hooked up a drop light with wire nuts to 12 volt leg and ground. Nothing. Ideas? Am I missing something?

Does it matter which lead is connected to the pool light wire after the transformer, they are identical, both are black.

Inyo Answer

Answered on 05/14/2015 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Allan, It doesn't matter, just make sure they are the 2 thicker black wires that are going to the 12 volt light.

If a use a 300 watt transformer but only have 75 watts of LED lights does the transformer consume the 300 watts or the 75 watts being used by the LED lights?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 04/06/2015 by Product Specialist Brian M.

It would only consume the wattage needed. No more.

Can you hook up more than one light to this transformer?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 01/24/2013 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

The PX300 is a 300 watt transformer. You can connect multiple lights to the transformer as long as the total combined wattage does not exceed 300 watts.

Question

Asked on 12/16/2006 by Guest

I am going to purchase two 12 Volt lights do I need to purchase a transformer with these lights?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 12/16/2006 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

The power coming from your house is 120V so you will need to purchase a transformer to drop the voltage from 120V coming from your house down to 12V going to the pool light. We sell two transformers the PX100 which can handle up to 100 watts and the PX300 which can handle up to 300 Watts. You may also put multiple lights on one transformer, for example if you had two 50 watt lights then you would only need to purchase one PX100 transformer and wire both lights into this single transformer.

Pros: Does what it's supposed to.

Cons: Kind of noisy, mount it away from where you will be.

Had it for nine months with an Intellibrite systems, works OK. It does make noises when the lights are programming (the controller programs the lights by powering off and on rapidly a set number of times for each color or program), and hums a bit otherwise. I have it mounted on a back wall behind a screening fence, still can hear it.
