These Drivers & Transformers make it possible for any garden to have its own LED lighting system. The power supply units convert your 240v mains power supply to the voltage to suit you light fittings, usually 12v or 24v.
Being exposed to the weather, water damage will occur any where water can get in. Electrical tape isn’t quite water tight & over time water will creep into the circuit & create havoc & void all warranties. For this reason you should always use waterproof cable joins like heat shrinks.
No, you do not need an electrician to install 12v garden lights. Transformers plug straight into a powerpoint & all of the 12v components are safe for DIY installation.
The size of your transformer/driver depends on the total wattage of the lights on your circuit. Eg: If you are using 8 x Spotlights with 5W LED Globes, you’re using 40W. You need a driver that is rated to handle the total of 40W. However, keep in mind that it’s important not to cut it too fine with matching the wattage to the capacity of the driver, if you undersize you will find the farthest lights will flicker. For this reason we recommend you allow for at least an extra 20%.
The main difference you need to worry about is their output current. Each brand of lighting has their own specified power compatibility, typically our transformers are 12v or 24v AC & our drivers are 12v DC. So if you’ve got existing lights or globes or are researching, it’s very important to check what power supply they are compatible with before you buy a power supply.
