    It is nothing more than for ease of installation. It is the same transformer/core we use in every Multi Tap we make (SS Models). The idea stemmed from years of looking for a spool of wire to sit on, or not being able to se the lug screws at night while adjusting voltages.

    Features & Benefits:
    1. Industry First top mounted installation capability
    2. Industry First replaceable secondary circuit fusing feature,
    the secret to customizing safety for each circuit allowing
    fusing based on actual amperage load or wire size not a
    preset amperage maximum.
    3.Industry First hidden wire chase allowing trouble-free
    entrance and access to multiple low voltage cables
    4. Line voltage wiring compartment for hard wire capability
    5. A spacious work compartment
    6. Oversized colored terminal lugs ideal for multiple connections at each tap.
    7. Snap-in photocell, Timer, Automated module, and Sequencer ready

    Available Sizes

    360IF 360 Watt 12, 13, 14, and 15 Volts Stainless Steel
    500IF 500 Watt 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17 Volts Stainless Steel
    600IF 600 Watt 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17 Volts Stainless Steel
    840IF 840 Watt 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18 and 20 Volts Stainless Steel

    840IF12-18 840 Watt 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 Volts Stainless Steel

    The 1120IF is currently being tested and should be available in the very near future.

    I'm trying to see where I would be bring my low-voltage cable in at. Are there knockouts on the side, and how big are they? I hardwire alot of my transformers, so the open architecture is a nice touch.

    doesn't heat rise and won't it fry your timer which sits on top of the core?

    No Pete. That is something we test in R&D. It does run slightly warmer than a standard but nothing substanial.

    You run the cable/conduit up a rear chase compartment. It is kind of hard to see. I will try and get some better photos of that. As far as knockouts are concerned there is a 1/2" and 3/4" knockout on each side of the can that are capped with rubber plugs for easy access.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.
