Is 125 degrees F too hot for a plug-in transformer??
To make a long story short, I am using a plug-in 120V to 24V 20VA transformer to power something that requires 24V 24VA. Is that why the transformer is running hot? In other words, if the device needs 24VA, is it trying to draw more than the 20VA transformer will supply, therefore making it hot? Is this ok? I'm assuming that there is some kind of fuse inside the UL approved transformer to prevent fire. I put a thermometer on it and it shows 125 degrees. Am I better off by upgrading to a 40VA or 50VA transformer? Will that run cooler? Thanks in advance.
