If the operating voltage of an illuminant or a luminaire does not match the supply voltage, a transformer will needed. Transformers convert the mains voltage (primary side) into the required operating voltage (secondary side). Low-voltage spotlights and other low-voltage luminaires without built-in transformers must be operated with upstream single or collective transformers.
