    Take the best features of all the transformers out there. Add some proprietary features such as 8 independant power taps 11.5-15V, 2 commons per each 25 amp circuit. Very solid and accurate .5 V regulation between taps ie-15V output at 15V tap under full load with 120V prmary.
    LED cabinet work lights, Magnetic breakers on the secondary and primary, plus thermal on the primary, built in surge protection, built in and switched LED indicator lights, plug and hardwire capability, several different generous sized knockouts under low and primary voltage compartments, Huge wiring compartment, Transformer is field serviceable as all parts are connected with stainless steel screws no rivets, Capacity to house several different control modules and you have the Magnum available in 600VA and 300VA models.

    Everything I hear about this trans makes it seem like an installer's wet dream.

    Is it UL rated?

    Mike makes one of the nicer units avialable.

    We have gone to using more larger open lugs to plese the masses and so far in the I-Force things haev worked out.

    The H-Force is a new Transformer we have coming out in the next 30-40 days or so that has 13 common taps, each one equipped with ts own secondary fuse so essentially every home run you pull into it will have its own common tap to wire too. The unit will come in 1500 and 1838watts! There are far to many features to list right now.......plus I dont have all the specs yet so just know it is oging to be N I C E!!!

    1838 Watts?

    Lemme guess.... you're rounding down to that to confuse people about the whole UL1838 issue?

    Or (on a more positive note) to remind them (if it is) that it's 1838 compliant?

    BTW, I meant no disrespect calling MG's transformer a wet dream... I meant it as a sincere compliment...

    I'm also assuming that the only time I'll ever get my hands on one is in my dreams...
