Intermatic Incorporated today announced its new COMBOConnect™ Junction Box Transformer, a hybrid pool, spa and landscape lighting solution that blends the simplicity of a standard junction box with the power of a 100 W low-voltage transformer.
Its unique design requires 20-30 percent less space than traditional, separately-installed components, allowing pool builders to do more with less. Installers can connect up to five low-voltage lights or daisy-chain multiple COMBOConnect units through two high-voltage ports.
“Space is always at a premium for pool builders who need to balance increasing low-voltage lighting needs with overall aesthetics,” says Kimberly Durkot, segment marketing manager at Intermatic. “COMBOConnect simplifies components on the pool pad to provide a cleaner look and improved functionality.”
COMBOConnect (patent pending) is listed and labeled per NEC 680.24 for use with pool and spa underwater luminaires and per NEC 411 for low-voltage landscape lighting. This distinction makes COMOBOConnect code compliant and compatible with all major pool safety light manufacturers.
A reliable choice for nicheless low-voltage lights in pool and spa applications, as well as landscape and fountain lighting needs, the low-voltage ports of COMBOConnect accept 16/2 and 18/2 AWG cord sizes.
COMBOConnect simplifies pool setup while providing practical features, including:
- Compact Size - Great for installation in small spaces, COMBOConnect requires 20-30 percent less space than traditional junction box and transformer components.
- Universal Ports – Low-voltage ports accept 16/2 and 18/2 AWG cord sizes, accommodating all major pool safety light manufacturers.
- Mounting Options - Wall, post and rod mounting options (mounting bracket sold separately – part # PA119) are available to meet a variety of design needs.
- Noise Reduction - Built-in ET-NF electronic noise reduction technology helps maintain a quiet and comfortable pool and spa environment.
