Q-TRAN has revolutionized the lighting industry with the introduction of the versatile Q6 Series, a Power Supply Center of high-quality, performance-based Toroidal Transformers. Q6 is the first and only group of transformers specifically designed, engineered and UL Listed for mounting in any of six available positions. Q-TRAN, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality, power supply systems, transformers and components for low voltage lighting systems, has developed Q6 to greatly reduce noise while producing superior light output and lamp performance.
While other transformers in the industry are only UL listed for mounting in the vertical position, the flexible and innovative Q6 Multi-Volt Toroidal Transformers are UL Listed for surface mounts in any position, including ceiling, floor, and six different wall surface mount positions (in any direction), and wherever is needed to power a low voltage system. In addition, the series offers three different mounting options, including a rod suspension (above hung ceilings in commercial applications), a junction box mounting plate (for easy installation/wiring above a J-Box), and a decorative shroud (for a clean look and frontal ventilated design).
The Q6 features a unique dual-tap design to compensate for voltage drop from dimmer loss, a standard choke for noise reduction (reaching industry's lowest levels on acoustic tests) and in-rush current, and a variety of circuit breakers for secondary circuit protection. Working with 12 or 24 volt low voltage lighting, the Q6 increases light output by 50 percent for brighter, more efficient lighting. The system also compensates for load size and resistance without increasing wire size. Three models of Q6 Transformers are offered â€šÂ¬Ă˘â‚¬Âťthe Q6S, Q6M and Q6L.
The Q6S Transformer style, crafted of 18-Gauge welded steel, is 8.63 inches long, 5.75 inches wide, and 3.1 inches tall, with designed with four knockouts.
Fifteen years ago, Q-Tran, Inc. was founded by John Tremaine. Today the firm is a leading manufacturer and designer of power supply centers and transformers for low voltage and LED lighting systems. Mr. Tremaine, who has been involved in the industry since 1970, is an accomplished lighting designer who was born into a family of lighting entrepreneurs, manufacturers and innovators that have been involved in the lighting industry for seven decades. Q-Tran was established in as a source for remote transformers that eliminated noise and heat, significantly improving performance to enhance the quality of light.
Over the years, Gean Tremaine, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, and Jordan Nodelman, Vice President of Operations, would take their place by their father's side, helping to build Q-Tran as a leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality, power supply systems, transformers and components.
At the 2008 Lightfair International, Q-Tran's Q-Set transformer cassettes and Q-Vault housing received the show's highest accolades by winning Innovation Awards for Best Landscape Lighting Products, and Best Overall Product Design from 187 entries.
Operating with the mantra Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“EnlightenedThinkingĂ‚Â®,Ă˘â‚¬Âť John and his firm has pioneered innovative transformers with improved safety, reliability, performance and convenience. He developed the first power supply center designed specifically for low voltage lighting 15 years ago.
Q-Tran power supply products are significantly more energy efficient than all other magnetic and electronic transformers available in the industry. With energy costs rising, energy efficient power supplies have a dramatic impact on projects by lowering operating costs and improving light output at the same time. It's a win-win situation.
