Halogen Lights - Electronic Transformer

Postby unshrin » Fri Jul 13, 2007 11:08 am


I have 3 20W halogen lights to fit that are attacted to a single electronic transformer that goes from 230V to 12V.

They are installed into the bedroom ready to be used.

I am planning on running a cable with 230V - (1) one wire to the switch and then from there to the transformer and the other (2) directly to the transformer.

Is that correct?
Can I just use the lighting circuit instead?
Which fuse should be on the mains circuit?

Many, many thanks!
