12V 300W Surface Mount Magnetic Transformer for the GK LIGHTRAIL(R) Collection

Welcome to the new world of George Kovacs(R) lighting. GK LIGHTRAIL(R) systems represent a fresh approach to the concept of rail lighting systems. Our improved design offers all the options with a simple philosophy; make it easy. Let your imagination run wild as you invent new ways to light your home.

GK LIGHTRAIL(R) are low voltage systems that offers you a complete line of components allowing you to create a lighting plan for any room in your home. It consists of flexible rail, a wide array of fixtures and glass, and a variety of transformers that will adapt to all lighting needs. A complete line of accessories are offered to allow your vision to come to light.

Each surface mounted transformer includes a power feed for a standard 8' ceiling. If using a remote transformer, or if the ceiling is higher than the standard 8", you must use one of the adjustable power feeds. Add up the total number of fixtures and the length of the rail to determine what transformer would be best for your layout.

  • 12 Volts / 300 Watts
  • 9-1/4" Diameter
  • 6-1/2" Height
  • Includes power feed for a standard 8' ceiling

What is the difference between electronic and magnetic transformers?

  • Electronic transformers operate at a high frequency so they are smaller and lighter.
  • Magnetic transformers use a lower frequency, are heavier and can operate more efficiently on runs longer than 20' with minimal voltage drop.

What is voltage drop?

  • As the power is pushed along the rail each fixture takes its share of the power to operate the light. Therefore, fixtures farthest from the transformer receive less voltage. The fixtures at the end will not be as bright as those closer to the transformer. The magnetic transformer can sustain its full voltage on rail lengths up to 100 feet, Electronic transformers have a maximum voltage up to 20 feet.

What is a power feed?

  • The power feed is the piece that feeds power from the transformer to the rail.

Product Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from transformers burn out Stay away from the George Kovacs track lighting system. The lighting looks very good, and it illuminates well, but the transformers have burned out repeatedly. They are expensive to replace, about three-quarters of the cost of the entire kit. We have been through three transformers in four years. Now, we're tired of throwing good money after bad, and we're replacing the system. Look around on the internet -- many people complain about the same problem.
