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 replaced halogen transformer. My only criticism is I think the website fudged the issue of leds replacing transformer driven filiment bulbs. I decided to change the transformer, which did require a bit of skill, especially as the transformer was not very clearly marked.

Could do with more space to terminate wiring, but when the covers are fitted the cables seem secure. Too soon to comment on reliability, but isn't getting to warm, so seems good.

Smashing transformers, replaced all the not so old transformers that worked watt halogens in my kitchen (21 in all (worked out as 600 watts per hour when turned on)), now the whole kitchen runs on about 70 watts. I would recommend these to anybody who ants to save money on their electricity bill. Fantastic quality, great product

This transformer is required to run LED bulbs if you want them to last as not all old style transformers are compatible and you don't want your expensive LEDs to burn out and have to spend more to replace them than it would have cost to replace the transformer I would recommend this item to anyone hue is thinking of replacement LED bulbs

had a problem with existing transformer which was powering two halogen downlights but would not support requirements of the new led bulbs. This new transformer sorted the problem and the 6W rating was sufficient. A bit fiddly to manage connections but best to establish two flyleads to seperate connector blocks.
