Description

Perfect for the LUMiLiFE range

The LED Transformer / Driver is used to power low voltage (12v) LED bulbs and strip lighting. LED bulbs require a constant voltage to work properly. Sometimes a normal 12v transformer will work correctly with LED bulbs, but in some cases the lifespan of the bulb will be reduced.

What transformer do I need?

You need a transformer that can power the total wattage of the strip or bulbs being used. For example, if you plan have 2x 5W MR16 LED bulbs that total 10W, you would be recommended a 20W transformer. 20% of the transformer capacity needs to be left over to prevent overloading. Please contact us for advice or assistance if unsure how to proceed.

3 year LUMiLiFE warranty

On selected LUMiLiFE products, we offer an automatic 3 year warranty. This entitles you to unlimited replacements from the original purchase throughout the warranty period. If your original purchase is no longer available, a new replacement with the latest equivalent model will be offered.

Lumen

Since LED light bulbs are designed to use less energy than halogen spots, wattage is not a reliable way to gauge how bright the bulb is. Brightness is measured in Lumens.

With LED spotlights there is more to consider than just a direct Lumen comparison with the halogen equivalent. The superior light quality given off by LEDs and much lower bulb degradation rate over time must also be taken into account. This is why the stated Lumen output for an LED spotlight is often less than that quoted for a halogen spot bulb it replaces.

Beam Angle°

The beam angle is how wide the beam is spread. If you have a very narrow beam angle your light will be projected like a handheld torch whereas if you have a wide beam angle it will be much softer and spread like a traditional bulb. Wide beam angle are best for living areas such as living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms where you are looking for a softer light and narrow beam angles for targeting specific areas or for decoration.

Power Consumption (W)

The wattage is the value given to the energy consumed by the light bulb itself. So, a 50-watt halogen spotlight bulb will use 50 watts of power. If you have 6 x 50-watt halogen spots in your kitchen then you will be using 300 watts of power. If you were using replacement LED lights at 4 watts each you would be using 24 watts of power, resulting in huge energy savings.

Input Voltage

This is a measurement of the volts required to operate the bulb. The standard for the UK is 240 volts. This means that you can plug these directly into existing fittings without changing any of the electrics.

Height (mm)

The size determines the diameter and the length of the bulb. In most cases the bulbs are a retro-fit, which means they are a direct replacement for their halogen equivalent.

Width (mm)

The size determines the diameter and the length of the bulb. In most cases the bulbs are a retro-fit, which means they are a direct replacement for their halogen equivalent.

Depth (mm)

The size determines the diameter and the length of the bulb. In most cases the bulbs are a retro-fit, which means they are a direct replacement for their halogen equivalent.

Wattage Replacement

This details what this LED bulb is a replacement for in terms of standard halogen bulb wattage. This allows you to easily make a comparison when replacing your existing halogen bulb, to ensure you get a similar light quality and brightness from your new LED bulb

Average Life in Hrs

Manufacturers will give lifetime claims in multiples of 1000 hours. One thousand hours is equivalent to about 6-months use when the bulb is on for 4 hours per day. A traditional halogen spotlight bulb is expected to last about one year (2000 hours) where as an LED will last between 30,000 and 50,000 hours - that’s between 15 and 25 years! Switching to LEDs means you may never have to change your light bulbs again.

Base Type

This is the fitting of the bulb, described by a letter/number code. You can find out what your fitting is by looking on the base of the bulb you are replacing or the packaging of your existing bulb.

Dimmable

Dimmable LED bulbs are only compatible with a dedicated "Trailing Edge" dimmer switch that reduces the current flow. Your bulbs will not work effectively if used with the conventional "Leading Edge" dimmer switches that operate with a higher current flow.

When ordering dimmable LEDs please ensure you have an LED-compatible Dimmer Switch.

Protection Rating

The IP rating is an international classification system for the sealing effectiveness of enclosures of electrical equipment against the intrusion into the equipment of foreign bodies (i.e. tools, dust, fingers) and moisture. IP65 for example, is dust tight and water resistant.

Colour Rendering Index (CRI)

Measured on a scale from 0 to 100 percent, the colour rendering index (CRI) indicates a bulb's ability to make reds, greens, and all other shades look just the way they should. Simply put, the higher the CRI, the more accurate an object's colour would look under the light source.

Warranty

We're so confident in the quality of our bulbs that we offer an extended 3 Year warranty

I use this product to power LED strips in a specific display unit - I got to the size by asking the experts at LED Hut for the correct Wattage for the length of LED strip was using - as this unit is to go around the world I also needed a power supply that could cope with110V to 240V supplies. This is perfect for that job, relatively small size and easy to install in our units.

I think transformer/drivers are the potential weakness of any low voltage system. One out of the seven bought over two years was faulty on delivery but replaced speedily by LEDHut without any hassle. How well they will last is an unknown, but be sure to run only at 70% of rated current to ensure a long life.

This transformer is in ideal transformer for a single 2.5m roll of 5050 high-power LEDs, which in my installation is conveniently rated at 36W. It may also be used for other LED strip lighting providing the total load does not exceed the transformer's rating. The transformer is rectangular with the AC input and DC output at opposite ends. Each end appears identical but which end is which is clear from the markings against the terminals. At each end, the terminals and single mounting holes are accessible under end-caps that are held in place with two small screws. The terminals themselves are screw down clamps and the single fixing hole at either end, is situated under the cable entry points, so be careful when fixing and connecting the terminals to ensure that the connecting leads do not get damaged. Once everything is connected the lighting is almost immediate. I have no problem in recommending this transformer.

I have used the transformer to drive LED strip lights under my kitchen cabinets. I would recommend LED Hut to anyone. The product was excellent
04th October 2014
5/5
A well constructed item. Measured on a 24W led strip load, it gives 12.4V measured at the supply (11.2V at the far end of a 5m strip). If fed to both ends with low loss DC cable, that would be 12.1V at the centre so ideal for nominal 12V strips. Running 24W continuously, it feels only slightly warm to the touch so with adequate ventilation should give good life. The unit is lighter than expected with easily accessed fixing holes at each end.

Used on kitchen strip lighting - 1 transformer actually drives 2 2.5m strips joined in series. A replacement for a 6W transformer ordered in error. Only recommendation is that the wattage required for LED strips is posted on the detail page for each product as well as on the list page.

The transformers are well built, compact and they test fine. Instructions for how to access the back screw plate would have been handy.I was trying in vain to prise the back plate off!! It's simple when you know how. Remove the end terracotta plates and away you go.
