Landscape Lighting Solutions: Outdoor Power Supplies by Q-Tran

In this month’s Landscape Lighting Solutions newsletter, LIGHT has compiled a list of outdoor power supply centers made by Q-Tran.

Q-Tran began manufacturing power supplies when founder John Tremaine discovered a flaw in the standard power supply centers. Frustrated with the performance and quality of the existing power supply centers, Tremaine designed a product addressing all the issues previously ignored: safety, reliability, performance and convenience. The result: the patented Q-Tran Power Supply Centers.

Q-Tran Power Supply Centers are all designed and built in their Connecticut headquarters and offer a 5-year warranty for electronic DC drivers and 10-year warranty for AC and DC toroidal power supplies. All are UL listed, Class A sound rated, and available in either dry or wet locations. Proudly American made, focused on customer experience and grounded in trust, integrity and teamwork, Q-Tran has set out to leverage 25+ years of excellence in the transformer and power supply space and offer high quality, innovative LED lighting products.

Today, Q-Tran offers a wide range of AC and DC LED power supply centers for every outdoor application.
