Anyone ever used a Weber WPDLXFMR transformer?

I understand that it has 8 isolated 11V AC outputs and a 9V AC out. Have any of you used it before? Good results with it? Does it come with 20 leads and is each pair individually labeled?

Thanks!

I've used the 240V version (WPDLXFMR-2), which seems to work fine. 300mA per AC output is plenty of power for most pedals. Each pair of secondary output wires have a unique colour, so they're easily identified.

The 120v version works great, but they aren't individually labelled. However, the pairs are all side by side coming out of the xformer. The 9VAC tap is green, the others are brown. Used one for about 18 months and went back to a rack recently. Worked great.

I built a supply with one and it works fine. Only beef I had with it is the pairs not being easily identified and that it's so large, it won't fit into any sort of compact box.

Reviving an old thread!!!! :horsey: :horsey:

I just got one in the mail.

The thing i need is a large enough enclosure... :scratch:

Went with the 120/240 model since the cruise ships have both.

As I stated elsewhere in a similar topic, I used this for my power supply. However, as I recall the 240V version is a little too large for this box.
I mounted the xfmr in the center and had room on each side for 4 circuits. It's not a pretty box, but quite functional.
