Ring Transformer question

I have 3 zones of landscape lighting (non-Ring brand) that will each require 1 Ring transformer (each zone is about 180W). Does this mean each transformer I get for each zone will require its own Ring Bridge? Or can 1 Ring Bridge handle all 3 zones? Thank you.

You would only need 1 Ring Bridge. You can only actually use 1 Bridge per household, but there should be no problem adding 3 Ring Transformers.

I’ve had my Ring Transformer for a little over a month now and am pretty happy with it. I only use it in dusk/dawn mode and no other schedule.

The Ring Transformer is 200 watt unit, so 180 watts is a really high load. The rule of thumb is to leave 20% headroom, which would mean 160 watt load.

If some of your lights are halogen, you can replace the bulbs with LED. Www.voltlighting.com is a great source for those.
