    Hi,

    I am replacing two T4 16W Strip Lights with two LED lighting strips. I have worked out which transformers I need for each length of LEDs. I just wanted to check something about using two transformers on one lighting ring.

    Currently there are 2 points where the lighting wiring comes out the wall. At one of the points I will just add transformer and LED strip. At the other point the wire goes from the wall to a 3 Terminal Junction Box and from this there are 2 outputs, one to the extractor fan and one to the T4 light (which I want to swap to an LED Light). Is there any issue with having the transformer and the extractor fan coming out of the same junction box?

    Thanks very much!

    Thanks very much for the prompt reply.

    The terminology for the led lights is quite confusing. If you have them powered by the mains then the DC power supply the converts from 240v down to 24v or 12v seems to be called either a transformer or a driver...

    Cool thanks for all the help!!

    Just happy to get a bit of advice really, hardly seems like something that I'd need an electrician to do (he would prob tell me to do it myself anyway!), but couldn't find any decent guides that would say if this was ok or not!
