How to Wire a Dimmable Transformer

Using a hardwired dimmable transformer from Inspired LED, you can create a fully integrated LED system for your home or business. Our transformers take the 120V AC running through standard wires and convert them down to a more LED friendly 12V DC. When done properly, this simple install will allow you to utilize a compatible wall switch or dimmer in just a few simple steps.
Important Note: This Driver is to be installed in accordance with Article 450 of the National Electric Code by a qualified electrician. Transformers should always be mounted in well-ventilated, accessible area such as an attic or cabinet. Never cover or seal transformer inside of a wall.

Open transformer and remove knockout holes to gain access to internal wiring.

Using in-wall rated or armored cable, run wires from compatible wall switch through wall box or directly to the location of transformer.

Connect in-wall cables from switch to transformers using wire nuts: black (+) to 120v, green to ground, and white (-) to neutral.

Connect transformer to low voltage LED wiring using wire nuts: red (+) positive, blue negative (-). note: if using inspired ED interconnect cables, cut off one end connector, split and strip. The side with white lettering is positive.

Connect to LEDs with standard plug-in or screw terminal, mount transformer in a well-ventilated area, turn on the main power, and test switch.
