Using Halogen light transformer to run LED lamp? Answered
Hi all, I have the following problem:
I'm trying to use the electronic halogen light transformer to run with an LED lamp that came off an emergency lighting unit. THe Lamp works fine off a 12v battery but when connected to this transformer (and a rectifier with a capacitor) both the lamp and the transformer get really hot. THe transformer outputs 11.6v at 4.9A.
It seems like the lamp is drawing all the current it can take from the transformer but it doesnt when connected to the battery?
Whats going on here?
THanks for all your imput!
