This should be an easy one. I have some inexpensive cable lighting that is powered by a low voltage tansformer. 12 volt if that helps. I want to add more fixtures to the existing cables. The transformer is at its wattage limit now. Can I add another tansformer to the same line in parallel? I have another transformer from another set of lights that I did not use and I want to just patch this in and add fixtures. Will I blow up the place?
I would tend to agree with Spyder, the idea of paralleling transformers up has its own problems, best to keep it simple. Also, if you are upgrading the transformer, leave a certain amount of lee-way in the rating, as this will prevent burning out, the transformer.
