Honeywell 1332 - AC Transformer 9VAC, 15VA Reviews
Submitted on 05/19/2020 Alarm Grid
The Honeywell 1332 is a long-standing electrical transformer used with a variety of electrical equipment. This includes many security systems and power supplies. The Honeywell 1332 has a power rating of 9VAC, 15VA. This makes it suitable for powering a VISTA-10P, 15P, or 20P System that is used without a cellular or dual-path communicator. If you have an added cellular or dual-path communicator, you will need a more powerful Honeywell 1361 if you want to power both the panel and the communicator using a single transformer. As the Honeywell 1332 is a fairly weak transformer, and most electrical equipment nowadays requires something stronger, the device has been discontinued. Alarm Grid now recommends the Honeywell K10145WH, which can do everything the Honeywell 1332 can and more. But still, if you have an existing Honeywell 1332 and a device that requires a 9VAC, 15VA transformer, then the Honeywell 1332 should work very well. That is why we give it 5 Stars.
There are some things to like about the Honeywell 1332. For one, its connector terminals are very easy to work with. The screw at the top of the transformer allows you to secure it to an outlet so that it does not come loose or is easily removed.The transformer is very reliable and has a great build quality. It can power a compatible device for the duration of its useful life.
There are not many downsides regarding the Honeywell 1332. One issue is that it is discontinued. However, you should still be able to come across unopened Honeywell 1332 Transformers if you look around on the internet. As mentioned earlier, the Honeywell K10145WH has basically the same specifications, but is more powerful and can power a greater number of devices. But these downsides are relatively minor, and they do not stop us from giving the Honeywell 1332 a 5 Star rating.
Good: Easy to Use, Top Screw, Reliable, Great Build Quality, Long-Lasting
Bad: Discontinued, Honeywell K10145WH Provides More Power
Bottom Line: 5 Stars
