AMP® 100 Watt Slim Line LED Transformer | Low Voltage Landscape Lighting
This low-profile transformer breaks ground in simplicity of installation and control.
The clamp-type terminal blocks are impressively easy to use - taking seconds to connect - compared to many minutes of frustrating work for standard terminal blocks. Just insert the stripped wire and close the clamp!
Next, an AMP® innovation, a newly designed timer/photocell combination. Visible through the housing window, this timer can be set for simple dusk-to-dawn operation, or set to turn off after a certain number of hours. The photocell is built into the timer; photocell sensitivity may limit transformer placement. This timer is a removable module - easily replaced.
The Slim Line Transformers have an easily removable, tool-less grommet to replace the metal knock-outs of traditional transformers. Traditional knock-outs required tools and were difficult to remove. The grommets on the new Slim Line Transformers are removed easily and can be replaced if necessary.
To make the transformer slimmer, lighter, and simpler-to-install, we eliminated unnecessary voltage taps. Instead of having to choose among 12V, 13V, 14V, and so on, you just use the single 15V tap. That's all you need for any small to medium sized (up to 100W) AMP LED system. No need to worry about voltage loss.

For Your Information: Transformer Technology
Magnetic Transformers. There are two types. These vary by the type of core:
Laminated/stacked cores (also know as EI type). Laminated or stacked windings have sheets wrapped in copper wire that are then stacked or laminated together to make a core. This is the more common, less expensive method for manufacturing a core. These are less efficient, run hotter and are noisier than toroidal cores.
Toroidal cores. These are one solid unit shaped like a donut and have the windings wrapped around the donut, in and out of the donut hole. Toroidal cores are more efficient, experience less buzz, and run cooler but are more expensive to make.
What are Electronic Transformers?
This transformer type converts the 120-volt current to 12 volts by first increasing the frequency of the current (from 60 Hz to as high as 20,000 Hz). The increased frequency allows the use of a miniature core enabling the transformer to be very small, light, and inexpensive. The biggest downside is that their high-frequency current may not be compatible with LED circuits. These currents also suffer from extensive voltage loss compared to magnetic types. A 12-volt electronic transformer must be positioned within about 10 ft. of the fixture. Electronic transformers are also subject to overheating and premature failure.
For all these reasons, AMP® only uses electronic transformers for indoor lights such as under-cabinet and strip lighting.

Great product & extremely user friendly!
Wonderful product, that is extremely user friendly especially for the end user being our clients. Nice range of adjustments for hours on after dark!
Gave it one more try.
The last two I purchased were bad most likely a timer issue...I swore I would never buy again, well I did and sure enough this one wouldnt turn on then finally it did stayed on for 10 minutes then shut down reset it would come on then shut down in 5 minutes...Toy... never again.

The jury is out...
The first one I got was set dusk to dawn worked for one day then then wouldn't come on the following night so I returned it for a new one... installed the new one dusk till dawn came on at 6.00 in the morning then shut off in 10 minutes later...will be returning...done with this transformer...
