Are WAC Transformers any good?

I heard they turn off sporadically.


Answer by  mammakat (11147)

Pros are they are easy to install, allow attractive lighting choices, are economical. They are rated good for use in kitchens. If they turn off sporadically that would lead me to believe there is a fault in installation, or the wiring to which they are connected.

Based on many reviews I agree that WAC transformers is not the best option since they do cut off a lot.

Safety settings also looked upon as glitches in WAC transformers have caused them to turn off sporadically. WAC Transformer have this setting as a reason if you feel the transformer you are using or seen used is faulty, contact the manufacturer.

It depends greatly on the manufacturer of the transformer. As with any electrical device it is wise to purchase from a reputable distributor. Otherwise you should have no problems.

WAC transformers have electronic and magnetic versions of range 60w to 1000w. Its feature includes auto-reset, soft start and short-circuits protection. With soft start having short circuit feature, it extends the lamp life. WAC provides a single source which run low voltage units efficiently. It is good to use these transformers which detect short circuit anywhere in an open bus system.

WAC Transformers are really good. The transformers which are used in low voltage systems are very sensitive to detect short circuit. All W. A. C. Lighting transformers are U. L. 2108 compliant and consist of electronic and magnetic versions ranging from 60w to 1000w. Certain models of W. A. C provide single source to wire multiple runs of low voltage units and display lights.
