We stock a full line of low voltage transformers for your Flexible LED Strip installations. You will find all of them here.
Flexible LED Strips will not dim with your 120VAC dimmers. We have special low voltage dimmers here. You will use the same method to calculate dimmer size as described below for selecting your transformer.
To size your transformer, simply add up the mA consumption of the product you are purchasing to arrive at a total consumption in Amps or milliamps and de-rate that total by 20%.
Example: 1 Full Reel of 5050 the Flexible LED Strips on this page consumes 600 mA
If you were going to install 3 full reels, you would have:
3 x 600 mA = 1800 mA
Our smallest transformer, the TX-1A has 1000 mA (1 Amp) total capacity. De-rated by 20%, it has a 800mA max current load. That would be too small for your project.
Look down the transformer page until you find a transformer of adequate size.
The suggested transformer for your project would be our Transformer 5A or even larger if you think you may expand your LED lighting project in the future.
