LED Transformer


Will magnetic cabinet closures interfere with an LED transformer for under-cabinet lighting?

Based on my experience, they should not interfere.

No. Permanent magnets put out a DC field, t'formers put out an AC field.
But, in a century [?] or so, the t'formers field will demagnetize the closure.

Thanks so much for the replies!!
I'm adding Corbels under my wall cabinets, as well as the LED lighting. The receptacle I installed for the LEDs is directly over one of the Corbels, so it has to be "removable" in order to access the receptacle. Magnetic Cabinet "catches" will do the trick nicely, but I had concerns about the magnets being so close to the Transformer. It's okay if they demagnetize in a century, the life expectancy of the LEDs is only 50k hours!!!
Thanks again.
