How do you hook the wire up on a Malibu ml200rt? I have one wire. The transformer has A-B and C on the back and came with 2 screws. Do I hook both wires to one screw on A or half of wire on A and half on B? What's C for?

If you have a meter you can test for 12 volts AC on the output of the transformer. They go to terminals

How do I connect the LV814PR Malibu remote photo control to the ML200RT Power Pack?


To connect the Malibu LV814PR photo control to the Malibu ML200RT:

On the bottom of the power pack you should have 3 terminals: A, B, and C. The trick to understanding how the photo control is connected to the power pack is to understand that the "C" terminal on the power pack is a "dummy" terminal. It is _not_ connected to the transformer in _any_way. It serves the same basic purpose as a wire nut, it's just a connection point.

To avoid confusion following these instructions, disconnect your existing wires from the lights to the power pack. (they should already be under terminals A and B.

To connect the photo control:

1...Connect the outside solid black wire from the photo control to the "A" terminal on the power pack.

2...Connect the center wire from the photo control to the "B" terminal on the power pack.

3...Connect the red striped wire on the photo control to the "C" terminal on the power pack.

4...Now reconnect the lights, except this time connect one wire from the lights to the "B" terminal (along with the center wire from the photo control) and the other wire from the lights to the "C" terminal (along with the red striped wire from the photo control).

Alternatively, one could not even use the "C" terminal and just connect those 2 wires with a wire nut. Kinda messy, hence, the reason for the "C" terminal.

If you want to have the lights on from dusk to dawn, remove both the red and black trippers and turn the manual switch to ON.

If you want the lights to come on at dusk and OFF at, say, Midnight, put the black tripper at Midnight.

Enjoy your lights.

Where you connect the electrical cord from a fount into the timer


The Malibu ML200RT is intended to operate _12_ volt AC (low voltage) lighting _only_.
Assuming your fountain pump is 120 volts, the needed set up would be to supply 120 volt circuit to an Intermatic T101 timer (or similar timer), then connect a GFCI receptacle to the load side of the timer. You could then plug your fountain pump into the now timer controlled GFCI receptacle.
You can use the same 120 volt circuit that supplies the ML200RT transformer.

I just bought a new Malibu Landscape Lighting 200 watt Transformer ML200RT and have 8 10-watt halogen new light fixtures hooked up to it. It worked for 4 days and all the lights went out. I have 11 feet of...


working with those outdoors transformer I have ran into couple would short the unit out by installing it wrong or exposing to lots of waters/moister. Again, it could also be a factory fault unit, some products will only last only few days before it blow out. It happen and most of those unit have 5 years warranty on them. I would take it back and get another and if it happens again than you may not installing it correctly or installing too close exposing to lots of moister and may short the unit out. I don't recommend trying to fix it still having warranty on them, get a replacement and start over. good luck and i hope that help some
