Low Voltage Lighting


I have an Intermatic ML 200RT transformer. I have power through the transformer to the terminals. However, when I connect the wires, the terminals are no longer hot. I'm checking the current with a meter. Not sure why I'm loosing power?

Low Voltage Lighting


Are you sure that bare ends or other parts of the wires don't touch one another where they should not further downstream causing a short circuit?
