I'm trying to revive an old Ikea "Trettio" lighting set. The set is made up of a 220V to 12V transformer and 5 Halogen lamps connected to it in parallel.
Remembering that the original transformer was defunct, I've replaced it with a new one. Now when I connect one Halogen lamp to the transformer and turn it on, the lamp lights up. As soon as I connect another one both lamps turn off.
I've tried rotating lamps and rotating across the 5 plugs where the lamps connect to the transformer, to no avail.
Is it possible my new transformer is too weak or otherwise incompatible with the Halogen lamps?
The new transformer specs are:
Electronic Led* Converter Prim.: 220-240VAC, 50/60Hz Sec.: 12VDC, Max 1.25A, 15W
Each Halogen lamp's specs are:
12V 5x Max 10W
For reference, the old transformer specs are:
Electronic Transformer Prim.: 220V-240V ~50Hz 0.26A COS 0.98 Sec.: 11.5V, Max 60W
* I know :)
