Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice small transformer - but no wiring instructions Its fine. But I wish there were wiring explanations with it - there is zilch! I understand that 240V is applied to the black wires (both are black -odd?) and the other three supply two separate 12 volt outputs (using three wires, of which two are the same colour). I'm sure people in the biz would know, but I didn't! Wiring instructions please!

I have got a small bluetooth stereo unit that is designed for a boat or the like and runs on 12v DC, I want to incorporate it into a project at home and need to run it from mains 240v, would the transformer work for this or if not what would I need?

Asked by: Manny
This would be unsuitable for use in the manner you describe as it is a 240v AC input 12v AC output transformer.

Suitability for mains voltage to 3x12volt halogen lights?

Asked by: jimt
The power supply has a maximum output of 250 ma ... I doubt very much that you would be able to power 3 halogen lights with such a low amperage.

Hi, Can this transformer work with small voltages? I mean a voltage that is not 230V? I want to apply it a project not the mains. The voltage produced for my project mechanism does not reach 230v. Thanks

Asked by: Colly
No, I am sorry but the item will not work for this use.

What type of transformer is this? Is it a AC -AC step up or step-down transformer? Thanks

Asked by: Colly
This will convert a 240VAC input to two 12VAC 250mA outputs. Full details can be found on the datasheet linked below; http://52.50.15.149:8072/Downloads/datasheet-9635
